DAY 9 MONDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

THE EXCELLENT WISDOM OF GOD IN LIFE!

I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you (Daniel 5:14).

God’s excellent wisdom is awesome, great and far above riches, gold and diamond in life. It is incomparable to anything else on earth in life. The reason why Daniel excelled more than all his contemporaries was because of the excellent wisdom of God in his life and ministry. The Bible says in the opening text that I have heard of you, that the Spirit of God is in you, and that light and understanding and excellent wisdom are found in you. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God indeed wants him to have His excellent wisdom in life and ministry. The excellent wisdom of God is indeed the wisdom that is absolutely far above all human riches, powers and authorities in life forever.

In the New Testament, the Bible tells us vividly that Jesus Christ became the excellent wisdom of God in the lives of men. That is why the Bible tells us in 1 Corinthians 1:30, “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” Therefore, the excellent wisdom of God in life is fully found in the deity of Jesus Christ in life. It is this wisdom that empowers the Christians to operate supernaturally far above their contemporaries in life. A life that is without the wisdom of God is of course a life that is curse and devoid of spiritual growth in life forever.

It is God alone that can give this kind of wisdom in life. It is not what one can obtain through the five senses or human intellect but purely divine in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Ephesians 1:17, “That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” In fact, whenever a Christian operates in the excellent wisdom of God, he constantly receives greater revelations and knowledge from the Holy Spirit in life. The excellent wisdom of God which is purely divine and undefiled is obtained through the power of the Holy Spirit in life (Zechariah 4:6). Therefore, the excellent wisdom of God is indeed the wisdom that creates distinction between the kingdom of light and that of darkness in life forever.

Daily Tip: The excellent wisdom of God is the wisdom full of God’s knowledge, understanding and thorough divine application in life and ministry forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him (James 1:5).
