Now Playing: The Spirit of Wisdom - Day 12

One of the seven Spirits, the Spirit of wisdom, gives us counsel in in every situation to know what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. Wisdom teaches us how to rightly apply revelation. Without wisdom, revelation is no good. The Spirit of wisdom gives us wise and discerning hearts.

When Jesus was twelve years old and teaching in the synagogues, everyone marveled at what He said (Luke 4:22). That was the Spirit of wisdom. The Spirit of wisdom can even give us the right words to help us communicate.

Remember that the Spirit of wisdom is an abiding anointing, not a momentary gift. “Now Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom, for Moses had laid his hands on him; so the children of Israel heeded him, and did as the LORD had commanded Moses” (Deut. 34:9). Joshua received the Spirit of wisdom when Moses laid hands on him. He went on to lead the children of Israel into the Promised Land.

Solomon’s first of two visitations of the Lord is recorded in 2 Chronicles 1:7–12. Solomon asked for wisdom to rule well. God was pleased with his request. He not only granted wisdom and knowledge to King Solomon, but also riches, wealth, and honor.

It’s been the Spirit of wisdom on my life that’s enabled me to accomplish things on the practical side of our ministry. Despite years of addictions, an eighth-grade education, and no background in business, the Lord gave me the ability to run a multimillion-dollar ministry reaching hundreds of thousands throughout the world. God’s Spirit of wisdom resting on my life helped me build a ministry that has had as many as one hundred staff working around the world. People wonder how I do all this stuff. I’ve even had businessmen of large companies ask whether I have a business degree. It’s the Spirit of wisdom.

Wisdom pours out her spirit (Prov. 1:20–23). What an invitation Wisdom extends to us! Personified as a female messenger, Wisdom says she is looking for “simple ones” on whom to pour out her spirit. Ask for Wisdom to pour out her spirit on you. That’s a great prayer to pray every day for you and your family.

Proverbs 4:5 tells us to get wisdom and understanding. Consider the following benefits.

Wisdom instructs (Prov. 1:2). Wisdom teaches us how to apply biblical knowledge and truths to our circumstances. We not only need to know what the Bible instructs, but we also need to know when to do it and how to do it so that we can apply biblical truths to our lives.

Wisdom protects. She will “deliver you from the way of the evil” (Prov. 2:10–12) and from the fear of evil (Prov. 1:33).

Wisdom protects those who love and pursue her. What a blessing!

Wisdom brings long life (Prov. 3:14–16; 4:8–10). Nothing you desire can compare with her. She brings happiness and peace (Prov. 3:16–19) and right things (Prov. 8:6).
