TEXT: 1 SAMUEL 18: 14-16
KEY VERSE: Job 28: 28 ‘And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.’
The devil brings many things on the way of the righteous. There are many snares on the path of the righteous to catch them, to lead them to tell lies, or to evil associations and various forms of compromise and sins. When you notice that there is sin attached to obtaining your desired goal, either in getting a contract or employment, or gaining any form of favour or advantage, and you determine not to compromise but rather to obey the word of God, that is your wisdom. When you choose to forfeit that money or opportunity so that you remain righteous, even the devil will acknowledge that you are wise. Witches and wizards that have set various traps to capture you will marvel at your wisdom when you evade all their traps by obedience to the word of God.
There was a particular case of two boys that were brought to me for deliverance and prayers, and they confessed that any time they wanted to go out for witchcraft, they stirred their mother into anger to weaken her spirit, and weaken the presence of the Lord in the house, thereby making the spiritual atmosphere conducive for them to fly out for meeting. Suppose you are that woman and with all the efforts the children make to annoy you, you kept on laughing!
Maybe one of the boys just deliberately kicked a container of water and splashed water in the room, but instead of flaring up you did the opposite….Oh! Sorry my son. Hope you are not hurt by that bucket? If you remain peaceful even when they abuse you, it will frustrate their plans and preserve your righteousness. That will be your wisdom. Wisdom is the ability to understand human behaviour and know what to say, what not to say, what to do and what not to say and do. All the godly and righteous are wise relatively towards Satan, evil and evil men, death and hell.
May God fill the leaders of Holiness Revival Movement, Pastors and leaders and workers with wisdom that this work can be done more easily to carry holy people to heaven.
Thought for the day: Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom
