Speak Wisdom Always

“ Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit, which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual ” (1 Corinthians 2:12-13).

Notice that our theme Scripture says, “Which things also we speak”; then reading further, it clarifies what those things are – wisdom! We speak wisdom. 1 Corinthians 2:6-8 makes it even clearer; it says, “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. ”

Speaking wisdom is speaking the Word. It discomfits the adversary; they cannot get in on it! For example, the Word says you are a partaker of the divine nature (2 Peter 1:4); that is the wisdom of God. Therefore, when you, on the basis of that Scripture, declare, “I am an associate of the God-kind, a partaker of His grace, glory and expression of His righteousness”, you are speaking wisdom.

When you declare, “All things are mine,” you are speaking wisdom. When you say, “I have the life of God in me; I live in agelessness, ‘wantlessness’, deathlessness and fearlessness”, you are speaking wisdom.

Declare what the Word says concerning you, irrespective of the situation. Affirm your righteousness, health, dominion and oneness with the Lord with boldness. Speak wisdom always and your life will glorify God.

CONFESSION
The wisdom of God is in my heart and in my mouth today. God’s Word is as fire shut up in my bones; and as I speak, I dissolve doubts. I am prevailing and reigning in life by grace through righteousness, and the glory of God is seen and expressed through me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

1 Corinthians 2:6-8 (KJV) “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory; Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.”

Hebrews 13:5-6 (KJV) “Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee. So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.”

Ever-Expanding Ministry

For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you. But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you; Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you…(Romans 15:22-24).

I’m so inspired by Paul and his visionary posture towards the ministry of the Gospel. Think about what we just read in our theme verse: He was explaining to the church in Rome the reason he hadn’t come to see them. He said, “ I’ve been busy evangelizing other areas, but now I’m through; I don’t have any more places remaining where I haven’t preached Christ. So, now I can come to you on my way to Spain .”

When you study the life of Paul, and the other apostles of the Lord in the Book of Acts, you find an ever-expanding ministry. In Acts chapter 2, the previously frightened disciples suddenly became bold after they received the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. Peter preached his first message and three thousand souls were saved: “ Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls ” (Acts 2:41).

In the 3rd chapter , into the beginning of the 4th chapter , we read how Peter healed a paralyzed man who begged for alms at the gate of the temple called Beautiful. As a result, the people ran together and crowded around them. There, Peter used the opportunity to preach, and this time, five thousand souls were saved: “ Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand ” (Acts 4:4).

In Acts 4:31 , we read that after the apostles had prayed and were all filled with the Holy Ghost, “…they spake the word of God with boldness.” Again, the result was that a multitude of people believe (Acts 4:32). The apostles were preaching the Gospel and working miracles. Acts 5:12 tells us, “ And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon’s porch .” Then it says in the 14th verse , “ And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women). ”

Observe the progression. The first time, three thousand souls believed at once. The next time, the number of those who believed was about five thousand (women and the children not counted). Then, a multitude! It didn’t end there, in Acts 5:14, Luke calls those who had believed “multitudes!” That’s
ever-expanding ministry.

PRAYER
Dear Father, I thank you for the ever-expanding Church in spite of the futile efforts of wicked and unreasonable men. I pray for the Church around the world today, that there’s unity, stability and growth, as we attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Acts 2:41-47 AMPC
41 Therefore those who accepted and welcomed his message were baptized, and there were added that day about 3,000 souls.

42 And they steadfastly persevered, devoting themselves constantly to the instruction and fellowship of the apostles, to the breaking of bread [including the Lord’s Supper] and prayers.

43 And a sense of awe (reverential fear) came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were performed through the apostles (the special messengers).

44 And all who believed (who adhered to and trusted in and relied on Jesus Christ) were united and [together] they had everything in common;

45 And they sold their possessions (both their landed property and their movable goods) and distributed the price among all, according as any had need.

46 And day after day they regularly assembled in the temple with united purpose, and in their homes they broke bread [including the Lord’s Supper]. They partook of their food with gladness and simplicity and generous hearts,

47 Constantly praising God and being in favor and goodwill with all the people; and the Lord kept adding [to their number] daily those who were being saved [from spiritual death].

Romans 15:18-24 NIV
18 I will not venture to speak of anything except what Christ has accomplished through me in leading the Gentiles to obey God by what I have said and done –
19 by the power of signs and wonders, through the power of the Spirit of God. So from Jerusalem all the way round to Illyricum, I have fully proclaimed the gospel of Christ. 20 It has always been my ambition to preach the gospel where Christ was not known, so that I would not be building on someone else’s foundation.
21 Rather, as it is written:

‘Those who were not told about him will see,
and those who have not heard will understand.’

22 This is why I have often been hindered from coming to you.

23 But now that there is no more place for me to work in these regions, and since I have been longing for many years to visit you,
24 I plan to do so when I go to Spain. I hope to see you while passing through and that you will assist me on my journey there, after I have enjoyed your company for a while.

He preordained your paths

For we are God’s [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [taking paths which He prepared ahead of time], that we should walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live] (Ephesians 2:10 AMPC).

As a Christian, God prepared your path, the path in life that you should follow. Predestination is at work in you. Take a moment to think about what we read in our opening verse; it’s so sublime: we were recreated in Christ Jesus, for good works which God planned beforehand for us, taking paths which He
prearranged.

This simply means that your life is set on a course. You’re not an accident. There’re those who are on a path that’s different from the path that God prearranged for them. They live in the wrong house, in the wrong city, they went to the wrong school, they have the wrong friends. Some are in the wrong job or business; they have the wrong associates and are in the wrong associations in life. They’re not aware that God has a special path prepared for them; so, they’re toiling and struggling through life.

Everyone has a definite path that he’s supposed to follow, and if you don’t know, you’d think life is just according to impulses. For example, perhaps after your graduation from the university, you opted to do a second degree; the question is, why?

Maybe it’s because your parents said so; maybe you just liked the idea of acquiring a second degree, or maybe you saw your friends going for it and you decided to get on the bandwagon. But did you ever ask God whether or not that was consistent with His plan and purpose for your life?

Most people never bother to find out God’s plan for their lives let alone see to it that they fulfil it. But that’s the greatest thing in your life- discovering God’s purpose and fulfilling it. Be wise and know that you need to talk to God about what you should do, the direction you should go, because everything God wants you to achieve in life has been pre-ordained.

If you want the best from God, if you want to live in His perfect will, you’ve got to walk in the path He prearranged for you, and it’s a path of righteousness, great glory, greatness and unending victories. Glory to God!

CONFESSION
Predestination is at work in me. My life has a purpose with God, for He leads me by His Spirit in the paths that He prearranged for me. Everything I’ll ever require to fulfil all that God has called me to do is available in superabundance. I’m led in the paths of success, victory and unending prosperity, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!

In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will

Workers together with Him

I am the vine; you are the branches. The one who remains in me — and I in him — bears much fruit, because apart from me you can accomplish nothing (John 15:5 NET)

We’re workers together with the Lord (2 Corinthians 6:1). In essence, without Him, you can do nothing, and without you He can’t reach the world because you’re His vessel, His mouthpiece, the one He’s trusted to take His message of salvation to the ends of the earth.

Notice that I didn’t say, “Without you, God will not do anything”; I said, “He cannot.” It’s that strong. When He said, “Without me ye can do nothing,” He meant, cut off from vital union with Him, “apart” or “severed” from Him, you can’t do anything. The other side is just as true. Without you, He can’t do anything that concerns you; He can’t do anything in your life or in your world, because that’ll violate His Word, will and purpose.

In Mark 16:15, Jesus said, “…Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” You’re to go out with all boldness, faith, courage and conviction, knowing that the Lord already did His part. Remember, Jesus gave His life to save the whole world. John 15:13 says, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Your purpose in the earth is to fulfil His dream. It’s to live for Him. Be compelled by the love of the One who gave His life so that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16). Put your faith, your energies and whole life into preaching the Gospel. Nothing should be as important to you as your love for Jesus Christ, which you demonstrate in leading others to salvation.

PRAYER

Dear Father, the light of your glorious Gospel shines ever so brightly today, bringing salvation, life and truth to men, women, boys and girls everywhere, as your children preach the Gospel all around the world. Your righteousness is established in the earth, and in the hearts of men, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

2 Corinthians 5:14-15 For the love of Christ constraineth us; because we thus judge, that if one died for all, then were all dead: 15 And that he died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves, but unto him which died for them, and rose

2 Corinthians 5:18-20 And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. 20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 6:1 We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain.
