King Solomon’s wisdom was unparalleled during his reign over Israel. He wrote about a lot of things, based on the revelations and inspirations that were given to him from God. He wrote about the things that pertains to life and the creations of God. He was an astute student and teacher of the world of nature; which really points to the wealth of his wisdom during his reign over Israel.
God had promised Solomon wisdom when he was told:

“behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you.”
I Kings 3:12 NKJV

Most of the writings in scriptures about the environment came from him. And many of those writings are still giving insights today, to scientists about our world of nature. Many of King Solomon’s writings about these creatures, gives us an understanding into the wisdom and wonders of God in creating them.
The God of faith gave words to men in writing about these things, for our understanding and insight into the knowledge of His wonders in creation. He did this so as to help us in building up our faith for anything in our world. The same words of faith with which He created all things, are available for whosoever will believe to speak and act like Him here on earth. We were created in the image of God, so that we can be the administrators of all the things that He created on His behalf. Your faith in God is the most powerful force in the universe. You can create things around your world with your faith. This is what sets you up above all of God’s creations. Your faith therefore becomes your servant in bringing into manifestation, what you say and believe with your heart.
In one of his numerous writings king Solomon wrote:

There are four things which are little on the earth, but they are exceedingly wise: The ants are a people not strong, yet they lay up their food in the summer; The conies are but a feeble folk, yet they make their houses in the rocks; The locusts have no king, yet they go forth all of them by bands; The lizard you can seize with your hands, yet it is in kings’ palaces.”
Proverbs 30:24-28 AMPC

These creatures in their weaknesses as described by Solomon can do amazing things, even though they do lack the ability to possess and act by faith like us in this world. They just do what they were naturally created to do by God, in their own natural world. And as they do so, God takes care of them. Your faith works for you in that manner also, as you begin to act and confess what is believed with the heart (from where faith originates). God begins to take care of the rest for you. You don’t need to do more than needed, because just like these creatures your faith works in the spiritual realm as it’s normal place of operation.
We can identify the strength of these creatures in the very things that made them so fragile and weak, by God’s given abilities in each one of them. Solomon called their weaknesses “exceedingly wise”. In other words weakness is wisdom; because when we acknowledge that we are weak like these creatures, then God can be strong for us. He begins to work on your behalf, as you release your faith to serve you. In this manner your faith will start resting on the promises of God in your particular situation, until you see things that are believed manifesting (Isaiah 26:3). You can have peace and rest in faith.
Our acknowledgement of our weaknesses before God, gives Him the opportunity to reveal and manifest His strength in us. Are you struggling in your own strength and abilities today? God can do “exceedingly wise” things in your life to make you strong. You can say that you are strong, because your strength really comes from Him, as you release your faith to rest in His strength.
Paul said:

“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”
1 Corinthians 1:27-30 NIV

“The lowly things” of the earth are these creatures, which God has chosen to nullify every man’s made or techniques for success in this world. God uses their ways of life to teach us to have faith in Him. According to Paul their weaknesses and their lowliness has become the wisdom of God in us – “that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption.”
For these creatures mentioned above their fragilities and weaknesses are in the strength and wisdom of God. The fragilities and weaknesses of these creatures, makes a wise person by the standard of this world, to look like a fool before God. God is the source of all wisdom, and He gives it only to those who are living in obedience to His word. You can’t be living and operating on the standard of this world (as a Christian), and expect the wisdom of God to flow through you. God’s wisdom is never based on the world’s standard in your life as His child.
Solomon could see the wisdom of God in the activities of these creatures. The ability to possess faith was never given to them when God created them, because they were never created with a spirit in them, as we humans do have. The ability to have a spirit would have enabled them to hear God, just as we can hear Him also. These creatures don’t even know God. They only exist for us to have dominion over them. They were created for us, and that’s why God never gave them a spirit when He created them.
The wisdom of God is fascinating in this, because any ability in these other lowly creations of His’ to possess a spirit like mankind, would have been disastrous to all of His creations. It would have set them up into a competition with the human race for dominion on earth. But God has set us up with dominion and authority over everything that He has created (Genesis 1:26-30). That’s what has made us superior to all of  creatures. And you can’t operate by faith, if you can’t see yourself in that position of dominion and authority, over everything that God has created. They were all created to serve you, just as your faith was given to serve you too. There is no struggle if you are living by faith in God. You just rest in Him, because you know that He cares for you, much more than He cares for these lowly creatures who have no faith for anything.
God created everything in the heavens and on earth in an orderly way. Man was created in the image of God (Genesis 1:26) for dominion and authority on earth. But it is fascinating to note that these creatures as referred to by Solomon, were created by God with the ability to get whatever they needed in life even without faith, so as to survive and live within their own environments. The moment they leave their natural habitations, they are exposed to the dangers of extinction. They do however have “exceedingly wise” successes in applying what God has given them, to maintain and exercise a limited supremacy, within their own natural habitations over other creatures like them.
King Solomon was able to study these creatures within their own natural world. Scriptures made us to realize that King Solomon had an exotic taste for animals during his reign over Israel. He was the first human to run a zoo on earth. The scripture says:

“For the king had merchant ships at sea with the fleet of Hiram. Once every three years the merchant ships came bringing gold, silver, ivory, apes, and monkeys.”
I Kings 10:22 NKJV

He had a unique interest for animal collections. An interest which was unparalleled during his time.

Your faith is your key into your future

As the children of God we have been given faith, through the entrance of God’s word into our hearts (Romans 10:10&17). We are able to do exploits and have dominion without limits here on earth, through the use of our faith. As spiritual beings we can’t have a lasting success in this world, without the exercise of our faith in God’s word. The word of God is a seed of faith that is planted into our hearts as the soil. It grows its roots into the soil of the heart, until the results are revealed by God. Faith is what God has given us, in order for us to be able to do exploits and exercise dominion in the world; just as He gave each one of these creatures the “exceedingly wise” abilities to live in their own natural world also. The world of faith for a person of faith who lives by it, is in the realm of the spirit from where God, who is a Spirit rules and reigns over all the earth.
King Solomon’s parallel analogies of these “exceedingly wise” creatures showcases the truth for us, that as believers in Christ we do not really have an excuse for not using our faith in God to get anything done here on earth. For with our faith in God nothing is impossible for us to achieve (Mark 9:23). For as long as we are prepared to live by faith before the Lord, we are able to do exploits for His Kingdom here on earth.
The achievements of these four feeble and fragile creatures is something that, we as Christians can learn many things from. If these creatures can do “exceedingly wise” things without possessing faith, nothing can hinder us as the people of faith from achieving greater things here on earth, than these “exceedingly wise” things. We do have the ability of God in us, to create exceedingly wiser things with our words, and do several things with the God’s kind of faith, which these creatures can’t do.
The ants are able to gather their food in the summer time, even though they’re not physically as strong as we are. The conies are able to make a home in the rock for themselves; even though they are much more fragile, than the rock in which they made a home for themselves. The locusts do not have leadership skills, yet they can advance in unison together, as they search for green vegetation. The lizard is able to scale through all the security checkpoints, to get into a king’s palace, even though it knew that it could easily be captured with the bare hands.
All these creatures are able to do great things in caring for themselves, without having to rely on any external help, and without the ability in them to have faith for anything. The moment you realize that your faith is your servant, is the point from where God begins to move the impossible for you into your future, as you rest in Him.

Worrying is the enemy of God’s wisdom in you

And as a child of God you don’t need to be “exceedingly wise” to be able to make it in life. All you need is your faith in God. The exercise of your faith is essential for you to be obedient to the word of God. Faith is our act of being obedient to God, by saying exactly what He says, and by doing exactly what He does. In other words you can’t be obedient to God, if you don’t have faith in Him and in His word to you.
You can’t have faith based on your intellectual knowledge about it either. Intellectual faith is foolishness before God. It is like mentally ascending to everything that your intellect tells you, that you can have faith for. It is limited in its’ ability in you, because it puts you in a “straight jacket”. But biblical faith is not intellectual. Biblical faith is spiritual. Intellectual knowledge about faith has hindered many from being able to do exploits in the Kingdom of God. God who is a Spirit rules the earth by His Spirit. You need biblical faith to receive anything from God, and not intellectualism.
Jesus once challenged us to use our faith in God to get anything that we want in this world. Jesus did it in the same manner just as King Solomon did; when He said:

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life? “And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you—you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
Matthew 6:25-34 NIV

The unbelievers worry so much about many things in life, because they don’t have faith for the very things, that they are worried about. Jesus mentioned how King Solomon was always dressed beautifully in caring for himself. But can the ability of a man to care for himself, measure up to the care of God for him? Men do worry a lot about the care that they do often give to themselves. But in reality God never created us to worry about anything; but He does expects us to use our faith in Him, to receive whatsoever our hearts desires from Him. You can always put all of your worries on Jesus.
The scripture says:

“casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.”
I Peter 5:7 NKJV

If Jesus cares for you, then you have no need of worrying about anything. Jesus uses the analogy of the created things, just as King Solomon used them also; in illustrating to us that our faith will always work for us, when we put worrying out of our lives. There is absolutely nothing that worrying about anything can do for anybody. But your faith that is active can get you anything in this world. King Solomon was able to learn through the exercise of his faith not to worry in life. The wisdom of God started flowing into his life, as he activated his faith to stop worrying about things.
Worrying will block the flow of God’s wisdom into your life, as you make attempts to exercise your faith in God. Worrying will cause you to doubt the wisdom of God for your life. Wherever worrying exists doubt is being empowered, until what is “greatly feared” (Job 3:25) will begin to come into manifestation. Fear will then overrun faith, until the devil uses it to steal, kill and destroy lives (John 10:10).
There was no worrying in the life of these creatures as described by both Jesus and Solomon. That’s how these creatures did “exceedingly wise” things. They just do not worry about anything, because they never have the ability in them to worry about nothing.
People who do worry can’t grow in faith. And since they are not growing in faith, they can’t walk in love and in the wisdom of God. It takes faith to walk with God. Just as faith is essential for anyone to walk in God’s Love and wisdom also.
As a father, I have personally learnt to put worrying out of my ability to raise and counsel my children. The less I worry about them, the more the Lord gives me the grace to love them, and the wisdom to counsel them whenever they need it. Worrying about your children will destroy your ability to trust them, even when they do make mistakes. Let the devil have his worrying, and you can just have faith in God as you rest in Him. That’s how the love of God and His wisdom will begin to flow through your life, to guide you in giving them the right counsels to follow in this life.
I have often been amazed also to see young ladies, who often do suffer for nothing. They are suffering because, they have allowed worrying about who to marry in life, to hinder their ability to rest in God by faith. This stops their ability to get into the wealth of God’s wisdom within them for their life partners. Many of them are wise; but they have allowed worrying to stop the blessing of marriage into their lives. Worrying always blocks the wisdom of God in them, and it opens the door for insecurity into their lives. And as insecurity begins to breed on fear, their hope of ever getting married disappears. And when hope is lost, they’ll start to loose everything that they were believing God for; because they can’t have patience when hope is lost. It’s impossible because hope is the anchor of their faith, for whosoever they are believing God for in holy matrimony. And if you do not have hope, as the anchor of your faith for a future partner, then you can’t rest in God by faith. When they can’t rest by faith in God, the flesh then takes over as they begin to yield to the desires of their flesh in marriage.
It is quite interesting to note also that Jesus made reference, in the scriptures texts above to the wisdom of King Solomon. King Solomon was rarely worried about wisdom; because he had learnt to draw inspiration from these “exceedingly wise” things that he wrote about. He was able to get wisdom by studying these creatures, which never worried about anything at all, but were still successful in what they do within their natural environments.
You see God sees you wiser and pleasing, if you are living by your faith in Him. A fool will worry about everything in life, instead of stepping into the arena of faith, which is the supernatural realm where God is.
There is absolutely nothing you can ever be able to achieve in life by worrying. All of these creatures of God are never worried about anything. Have you ever seen any of these creatures of God worrying about anything? No! They just do the natural things for them to do, in order to get whatever is essential for them. The “exceedingly wise” thing is that, they don’t even have faith for anything but are still successful in what they are doing.

The lifestyle of faith breaks the curse

A lifestyle of faith is what is expected of the born again child of God. It is the expectation of God for your life. But it is also supernatural for a believer in Christ to live by his faith in God.
Apostle Paul said:

“Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.””
Galatians 3:11 NIV

These creatures that were mentioned above do live under the law. And there are people who will prefer to live under the law of sin and death, like these creatures on earth today. And that’s why the curse of the law is evident on them. But glory be to Jesus that we had been redeemed from the curse of the law.
As Paul continued:

“Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”), that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Galatians 3:13-14 NKJV

You see “the promise of the Spirit”, that destroys the curse of the law comes by living according to the Spirit of faith. Human beings are created by God to live by faith into the abundance of His blessing. That’s how Abraham became blessed and rich. And that’s how every satanic curses can be turned around into a blessing. But you can’t live by faith to turn the curses into the blessing, if you are worrying and thinking about the curses. That’s exactly what the enemy wants you to focus on. But you can stop the curse circle by beginning to speak the blessing into your life. That’s how the seeds of the blessing are planted into your life. And as those seeds become rooted in your heart, expect your faith to work in manifesting the blessing. God’s ability to take care of you, will ensure that you experience the blessing; as your faith rests in Him to position you for the blessing.
We were never created like these lower creatures of God. It is wonderful to have faith in God for everything in this world. You just don’t have to worry about anything, but just to trust God daily for everything, and rest in Him. Living by faith is what gives us the peace of God, that is garrisoned over our soul in keeping us away from worrying (Philippians 4:7).
As the scriptures says above; “the righteous shall live by his faith” in God. There is absolutely nothing that’s impossible for you to do, if you are doing it by your faith in God (Mark 9:23). The moment you begin to understand that, it is by releasing your faith in God to work for you, that you can do what you thought you could not do before. That’s when God begins to step into everything that concerns you.
Faith is what opens the windows of the blessing of the Lord into your life. You’ve got to see or perceive the blessing of God by faith, for you to be able to receive it. It’s invisible, but your faith can be released to help you into seeing the invisible. The good things of God comes to those who are walking by faith before God.
You can grow up spiritually, as you begin to make use of your measure of faith, which God has given you (Romans 12:3). If you have faith and you are not using it, you will be suffering with a spiritual deficit of the blessing of God in your life.
The ants, the conies, the locusts and the lizard all have great lessons to teach us all. They are teaching us to start living in our own spiritual place of habitation in Christ by the Spirit of faith. That’s how you can ever get God involved, on those situations that you are worried about today.
As King Solomon said again:

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.”
Proverbs 3:5-8 NKJV

When you are walking in the wisdom of this world, your access into the wisdom of God is blocked out. Satan will guarantee that for you. But the wisdom of God to walk in divine health, (as an example) comes by faith to you. The goodness and blessing of the Lord for divine health, comes through your ability to live by faith before God. There is so much more in life that is waiting for you, as you live by faith.
Why not start today and begin to enjoy the blessing, instead of trying to endure it. Begin today by putting worrying out of your life. Release your faith through your spoken words to start working for you. These are the “exceedingly wise” things that can turn curses into the blessing over your life. God wants His blessing to flow through you in changing your world. You are God’s catalyst for the change. You are “exceedingly wise” as you begin to obey God today. Stop enduring the blessing and start enjoying it, as you begin to let your faith work for you. You’re blessed!
