17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy.
Today’s Inspiration: The Kingdom of God does not operate by human understanding but by the power of God. Human efforts are futile. We need God to guide us through His wisdom. Hence wisdom is the principal thing we should have then get understanding and discernment.
‘King Solomon knows he cannot lead His huge congregation and army without the wisdom of God which is attainable only from above. James 3:17. So he asked the main principal of success ‘wisdom’. God not only give him wisdom but riches, honour and life. He surpassed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom and all the kings of the earth sought His presence to hear the wisdom which God has imprinted upon his heart. Everyone brought treasures to him including Queen Sheba who was impressed very much by His wisdom. 2 Corinthians 9:21-24. So he reigned over all the kings in verse 26.
God only gives him one instruction: obedience and to serve Him. By so doing, he shall spend his days in prosperity and years in pleasure. Job 36:11.
Obedience also leads you to eat the best of the land in Isaiah 1:19. Samuel told Saul obedience is better than sacrifice. 1 Samuel 15:22. How important is obedience! Adam and Eve fall because of disobedience. King Uzziah and King Saul lost their lives because of disobedience and performed the duties of whom they were not called for.
How many times have we insist our own way and did not bear fruit? We just refuse to enter into the call of which we are anointed for. It is a very high price to pay for entering into something we are not called for. We should not be enticed by our flesh or by the world. These are all the strategies of the devil so that the Kingdom of God cannot advance.
The only thing that is offensive to our life is our mind. If we do not control it, it will control and paralyse your potential in God. To take control, we have to use our spiritual weapon and that is the word of God to reverse whatever situation we are going through. One vital key is to forgive. We need to sanctify ourselves daily. John 17:17. A research on the brain reveals that everything that goes in our thought life is converted into a physical reaction. What we think affects us emotionally, intellectually and physically. Therefore whatever you think affects the whole body and your success.
2 Corinthians 10:5 tells us to take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ. It is good to meditate on whatever is good, whatever is praiseworthy and whatever is of good report. Philippians 4:8. If you need healing, meditate on constructive thoughts of healing. If you want success meditate on the words that speak success. God be praised!
