DAY 29 SUNDAY: NOVEMBER 2020

SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM IN LIFE!

For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding (Colossians 1:9).

Every Christian is expected to function in spiritual understanding and wisdom in life. This was the prayer of Apostle Paul to the brethren in the church of Colossae. In fact, spiritual understanding gives wisdom in life. A Christian who has spiritual understanding and knowledge does not work in ignorance because he knows what to do in every time, in every place and in every situation in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God sincerely wants him to be filled with spiritual understanding and wisdom in life. Hence, a Christian that is absolutely filled with spiritual understanding and wisdom in life is indeed a Christian that is far ahead of his adversaries and contemporaries in life forever.

Joseph was a man that was full of spiritual understanding and wisdom in life. The Bible tells us that even when the brothers sold him as a slave into Egypt; he never walked in darkness and ignorance in life. He knew exactly what to do at the right time in life. In Egypt, he moved from slavery to a prisoner but yet full of spiritual understanding and wisdom in life. He knew the will of God for his life; he never succumbed to sin and worldly pleasure in life. Therefore, whoever that is filled with spiritual understanding and wisdom can never give room to self and worldliness in life. A life that is absolutely full of spiritual understanding and wisdom is a life that is divinely ahead and above forever.

The Bible tells us in Psalm 111:10 thus, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding has all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.” In fact, the fear of God gives spiritual understanding and wisdom that paves way for one’s greatness in life. Daniel is another case study of a young man that had spiritual understanding and wisdom in life. The Bible says that because of his spiritual understanding and wisdom, he excels far above his contemporaries, and the evil schemes and imaginations of his enemies could not prosper against him in life. Therefore, through spiritual understanding and wisdom a Christian constantly obtained his daily victory from the Lord in life forever.

Daily Tip: Every Christian should desire sincerely for spiritual understanding and wisdom obtainable through the fear of God, which is the principle thing in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: How much better to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen rather than silver (Proverbs 16:16).
