Wisdom The Principal Thing
The beginning of Wisdom is: get Wisdom (skillful and godly Wisdom)! [For skillful and godly Wisdom is the principal thing.] And with all you have gotten, get understanding (discernment, comprehension, and interpretation).
(Proverbs 4:7 AMPC)
Today we need leaders with real solutions to society’s problems. One man said we are coming into a time in history that the problems we have in society are not going to be solved on the same level they were created. In other words, it’s going to take “Level Two” solutions to solve “Level One” problems.
God is assigning believers to positions of leadership in business, ministry, education and all spheres of influence, and it’s time for believers to manifest the wisdom of God. We should be the problem solvers. We were not created to run from problems, but we run to them because we have access to the answer to every problem in the world. How? Through the wisdom of God.
The Bible tells us that “Wisdom is the principal thing” (Proverbs 4:7). Every challenge and battle you are faced with today requires Godly wisdom to overcome it. There is a wisdom which I call “natural human wisdom” that mostly comes through technological experimentation or “trial and error.” But the apostle Paul writes in Ephesians 3:10 that the Body of Christ is going to operate in “the manifold wisdom of God” or on a mental frequency that will be far above human wisdom. This display of wisdom will place the Body of Christ in a position of prominence in the world.
Are you ready to receive God’s divine wisdom and understanding, and take your place as a problem solver?
Dear God, I thank You that I have access to Your divine wisdom and understanding through Your Word and Your Spirit to solve every problem I have. (You can name particular situations here for which you need God’s wisdom.) And, I believe I receive Your wisdom to take my place to bring forth Your creative solutions to the problems of this world. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
