We saw last week that the wisdom of God is always available to those who will ask for it. According to the scripture, it is available to “all men” (James 1:5). All men means all human beings, males and females, believers in Christ and the unbelievers.
God will never and can never withhold His wisdom from all of His creations, created in His image and for His own pleasure. His wisdom created the heavens and the earth, and His wisdom is still holding them all together till this very moment.
 This explains why praying for wisdom is vital in everything that we do here on earth. If it was in wisdom that God created all things, then there is nothing that we can ever do in accomplishing anything meaningful in life without His wisdom.


Jesus was once having a conversation with a Samaritan woman, with whom He was not even supposed to be conversing with based on the Jewish tradition. But Jesus is never bond by the traditions of men. He sees beyond all of that in manifesting the will of the Father.

During their conversation together, the gift of the word of wisdom revealed to Jesus everything in the life of this woman:

“Jesus said to her, “Go, call your husband, and come here.” The woman answered and said, “I have no husband.” Jesus said to her, “You have well said, ‘I have no husband,’ for you have had five husbands, and the one whom you now have is not your husband; in that you spoke truly.”

‭‭John‬ ‭4:16-18‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

This woman was alarmed. She had never met a total stranger, narrating the story of her life to her. It never took long before she became an evangelist to her village.

Great things happens when we freely open up to the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and the wisdom of God to operate through our lives. With the gift of the word of wisdom manifesting in the ministry of Jesus, not only was this Samaritan woman saved, but the whole village received the gospel of salvation.

We can do what Jesus did in this Samaritan village in our world today also. The wisdom of God knows every communities, tribes, tongues and nations of the world. No matter how difficult or complicated the world may look like, God’s wisdom founded it and in His wisdom alone it will be saved.

The harvest may be plenty and the laborers few; but walking in the wisdom of God makes us smarter and much more effective in saving the lost of the world. In the wisdom of God we will prepare the way for our Savior’s return – Maranatha.



The difference between the gift of the word of wisdom and the wisdom of God in itself, is like one person using a recipe to cook a meal and another person cooking it by practicing based on personal experience (Ecclesiastes 9:10 NIV).

The application of wisdom in our daily lives as believers is vital to our success in life. The Holy Spirit may give us the recipe (the word of wisdom), or we may have to learn the application of the word of God itself in wisdom.

Whenever the Holy Spirit gives us the word of wisdom, He does always leads us into a deeper understanding of the purposes of God through prayer and intercession. But the Holy Spirit inspired wisdom of God works better through us, as we act by faith on the revealed word of God.

This is the wisdom that comes through the working knowledge of the word of God in us. The working knowledge of the word of God impacts our lives permanently, to make us better and much more productive Christians.

As believers in Christ we need both the word of wisdom and the gift of the word of wisdom, so as to be able to walk in victory against the enemy.

They both are like a double edge sword, with which we are able to penetrate the darkness of this world. We must always be zealous for them both and use them, if we want to be effective Christians in this world.



Have you ever tried to ask God for wisdom in your everyday decisions? Or will you rather base those decisions, on your everyday feeling of a heavily opinionated world?

We live in a world that is dynamic and fast paced. Sixty percent of our everyday thoughts are not really factual or truthful. Most of those thoughts never actually comes into fruition.

That means we need to be renewing our minds with the promises of God to us, as believers in Christ Jesus at all times. It also means that it is the devil who is always trying to penetrate and manipulate our daily thought patterns, to suit his own designs and strategies against us.

The Devil has lots of projects that he is daily carrying out against you as a child of God. You can never defeat him without the word of God and the Holy Spirit, working in the wisdom of God through your activated faith to manifest the victory.

If we are not seeking God for His insights and His wisdom into the issues that we confront daily, we are probably not making wise decisions in life.

That means we need to be approaching our daily Bible readings with an open mind. It may be that the wisdom for the day to you is tied up inside one word or phrase in the scriptures. Do not let wisdom miss you. Do not read the Bible with an old religious book mindset. It is the word of God to you now. It has God’s life and breath in it:

“For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [making it active, operative, energizing, and effective]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword, penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [the immortal] spirit, and of joints and marrow [of the deepest parts of our nature], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart.”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭4:12‬ ‭AMPC‬‬

Do not take your daily Bible readings lightly from now on. God speaks to you directly during that moment. He alone understands everything that is going on in our lives better than we do. He alone can fix those complications of life which keeps bothering you. Without Him, His word and His wisdom on our side, there is no way we will ever be able to make it.



Solomon once declared:

“Does not wisdom call out? Does not understanding raise her voice? At the highest point along the way, where the paths meet, she takes her stand;”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭8:1-2‬ ‭NIV‬‬

The wisdom of God is always available to us in the midst of all those decision making processes of our lives. That is “the highest point along the way, where the paths meet”; which Solomon is describing in this scripture text.

This is a direct reference to the climax of the issues of our lives, during which we do know without any doubt, that only the wisdom of God will see us through. It is the moment when we often have to take a definitive decision that affects our lives. It is the moment that the wisdom of God comes out in us, and takes a stand with us over our heart desires in the midst of those difficulties. It is that moment when God whispers into our hearts, directing us to follow His pathway of righteousness.

In the midst of the storms of life, at the moment when we get into the deepest parts of the valley in our lives. At the very darkest moments of our lives, when we know that we have no where to turn to again, the wisdom of God is always ready and available to us.

But the problem with many at this moment, is that they will often rush into making decisions based on their preconceived thoughts about the situation, or based on all the things that the enemy is pulling off into their lives and around them at that moment.

And by the time the storm is over, their eyes finally becomes open to the truth, that indeed they had rushed into making a rash and negative decision. Another good thing about the wisdom of God after we’d missed it, is that God’s wisdom will always lead us into correcting the mistakes that we had made. Unfortunately, not many people are wise enough to follow wisdom at this moment. The pride of life often blocks their pathway into the blessing of God.



David experienced this crisis management climax moment, while on the run from King Saul (1 Samuel 30). He had allied himself with the Philistines, with the believe that they would shelter him from Saul. But one day, war broke out between Saul and the lords or rulers of the Philistines.

David had to show that he had his allegiance to them, rather than to his former master (Saul). He left his wives, children and properties behind at Ziklag, and decided to join in battle with the Philistines.

But they were afraid of him, and thought that he would betray them in battle, and get reconciled back with the man who was after his life. So he was asked to go back to Ziklag.

On getting back to Ziklag David and his men found out that they had lost everything that they had ever worked for in life. And the men with David started blaming him for the bad decision.

In fact they were thinking of killing him. The Bible says:

“Now David was greatly distressed, for the people spoke of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and his daughters. But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God.”

‭‭I Samuel‬ ‭30:6‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

While the men were all blaming David, and were planning to stone him to death; David realized that he had been caught in between the rocks in a hard place. Instead of passing the blame on the Philistines, David choose to encourage himself in the Lord.

As he did this the wisdom of God came to him in consulting with God, rather than with the men around him. It was then that the word of God came to him, to go after those who had raided his town. The Lord told him that he would recover everything back.

We need to learn from David here. He strengthened himself in the promises of God to him in the midst of the crisis. He never sat the crying and weeping crowd around him down, so as to discuss the next plan of action. There was no point in talking with a bunch of fault finding men. David realized that he needed God to be on his side.

Wisdom spoke to him to seek God at that very moment of strengthening himself in the Lord. The crowd was of no use at that moment of crisis. He needed God to help him manage the situation. And the wisdom of God led him to fight back at the enemy.

Do not be a whiner in your moment of crisis. Be a fighter together with God on your side. Seek God at that moment of crisis in life; and not what friends, colleagues or the world seems to be suggesting for you.

Remember that every situation is never the same; and God’s solution to every problem in life is never the same also. He created all of us differently, and only Him knows the best for our lives. We need His wisdom to bring our change into manifestation.

David pursued the Amalekites, and he did recovered more than all that he had lost back in that single battle.

When we are making the decision to pursue after the wisdom of God in every complications of life, God will help us and deliver us. Till next week remain wise:

“The tongue of the wise utters knowledge rightly, but the mouth of the [self-confident] fool pours out folly.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭15:2‬ ‭AMPC‬‬
