Wisdom: The Winning Key

Dear Reader,

I welcome you to another awesome time in God’s presence. This month, I will be sharing with you on the subject, Wisdom: The Winning Key.

I believe that so many challenges today, in most homes, are as a result of lack of wisdom.
Wisdom is the tool for sustaining your home. Both the man and the woman in the home, need to embrace the wisdom of God, for it will bring honour and promote your home. God’s Word says: Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her (Proverbs 4:8).

An act of foolishness on the part of the husband and wife will definitely affect the stability of the home. You can’t afford to be foolish. Many homes, today, are going through tension, not because the husband and wife are not born again, or baptized in the Holy Spirit, but for lack of wisdom. In other words, they are victims of foolishness. Foolishness costs so much and puts a lot of people into trouble. I read a scripture in Proverbs11:29 sometime ago, which startled me. It says: He that troubleth his own house shall inherit the wind: and the fool shall be servant to the wise of heart.

You know what that means? Foolishness keeps a home in bondage; it does not allow you to enjoy the provisions of God for your family. It makes you a trouble in your own house, and you remain a servant to the wise. Many people have gone through divorce, because they were victims of foolishness? You will not be a victim in Jesus’ name!

What Then Is Wisdom?

Wisdom is the correct application of knowledge. This implies that it is quite possible to apply knowledge wrongly. When you apply it wrongly, the situation becomes worse than if you did not apply that knowledge at all.

For instance, a woman who is married to an unbelieving man comes to discover that the Bible says: And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing (Isaiah. 10:27). She takes a bottle of olive oil to be blessed in her Church and tells her Pastor, “Please bless this oil for me, I want to take it back home so that every yoke and tension in my home will be broken and destroyed.”

Now, that is good knowledge. She gets home to meet her unbelieving husband sitting in the parlour watching T.V. and the next thing she does is to splash that oil on the man. You can just imagine how the unbelieving husband will feel.

As far as that woman was concerned, she was applying what she had been taught. Due to the fact that she had actually applied it wrongly, the man may decide to beat her up thoroughly. Why? Is it because there is no power in the Word of God she discovered? No! Then why has it not worked? The Word of God does not work in the hands of the foolish!

Husband, wife, it is true that you have acquired so much knowledge from the Word of God, but you must apply it correctly, if it must work for you.

To access the wisdom of God, you must be ready to have a personal relationship with God, the only wise God. This is done by confessing your sins and accepting Jesus as your Saviour and Lord. If you are ready to be a member of God’s family, please say this prayer:

“Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me of my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. Deliver me from sin and Satan to serve the living God. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.”

If you prayed this simple prayer, you are now a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
Congratulations! You are now born again! All-round rest and peace are guaranteed you, in Jesus’ Name. Call or write, and share your testimonies with me through, and; OR 07026385437 and 08141320204.
