DAY 7 SUNDAY: FEBRUARY 2021

WISDOM IS YOUR ETERNAL INVESTMENT IN LIFE!

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding (Proverbs 4:7).

Wisdom is your eternal investment because nothing can be compared to her in life. When you have the wisdom of God, everything in life falls into pleasant places. The wisdom of God is pure and undiluted; hence, it is from above in life. In the opening text, the Bible tells us that wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. God’s wisdom is far greater and better than silver, gold and diamond in life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God’s wisdom is his eternal investment in life. Hence, a life that is full of the wisdom of God is absolutely a life that is full of physical and eternal investments both here and hereafter in life forever.

Man’s knowledge and intellect can never give you the wisdom of God in life. There is no amount of qualifications and degrees that can give you this kind of wisdom in life. It cannot be bought with money in life. But this wisdom is obtainable only from God Almighty in life. That is why the Bible tells us in James 1:5, “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.” Therefore, God’s eternal wisdom is free and available to all in life if only one can humbly place a demand on it by the Name of Jesus Christ. The wisdom of God in the life of a Christian is absolutely the manifestation of God’s glory, riches and power in his life forever.

This wisdom gives you the ability and grace to fear; reverence and worship God in life. This wisdom led the wise men from the Far East to search, reverence, bow and worship the baby Jesus Christ  in the manger (Matthew 2:11). That is the reason why the Bible tells us in Psalm 111:10, “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; a good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever.” In fact, the major criterion to obtaining God’s eternal wisdom is absolutely the fear of God in life. Therefore, the wisdom of God is absolutely the fear of God that manifests fully the nature and the power of God in the life of a Christian forever.  

Daily Tip: Seek after the wisdom of God which is the greatest that will absolutely manifest man’s physical and eternal investments both here and hereafter in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption (1 Corinthians 1:30).
