The Spirit of Wisdom Is Upon Us
And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? (Matthew 13:54)
It’s time for the Church to take the lead. The world is waiting for the “manifestation of the sons of God.” The world is not going to have the answers to today’s seemingly insurmountable problems. When Jesus came He had answers. He functioned in the power and wisdom of God. Matthew 13:54 reads, “And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?”
Remember what Jesus said when He opened the book and read in the synagogue? “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:18-19).
The anointing that was on Jesus is the same anointing that came upon you and me when we received salvation and were baptized in the Holy Ghost.
Dear God, thank you for the Spirit of wisdom that dwells in me because Christ dwells in me and He always operates in wisdom. I yield to the Spirit of wisdom in my situation and believe that I receive the answer I need. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
