“And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the LORD is his treasure” (Isaiah 33:6).

We are in a season of shaking all over the world and all over the places. Businesses are shaking, the health sector is not left behind and even the political sphere. The truth of the matter is this, you cannot prevent the shaking but you can prevent yourself from being shaken, you can tap into the intelligence of God in staying afloat when and where others are drowning; you can soar while others are sinking. This is the plan and purpose of God for you this season.

God has packaged your stability, safety and success in the operation of His wisdom; the wisdom of God is a stabilizer for life and destiny. This is why one of the provisions of God that is very critical this season is the provision of wisdom. While others are troubled and confused, the wisdom of God will grant you peace and direction. When others are cast down, the wisdom of God will show you the way to stay on top. When others are being locked down with little or no progress, the wisdom of God will bring you out winning and shinning. This season, learn to prioritize the wisdom of God. If the scripture says that “wisdom is the principal thing…”, then it means that you cannot survive or succeed if you don’t pay attention to wisdom.

One of the laws of wisdom is the law of priority; wisdom flows easily in the direction of those who prioritise it (Proverbs 2:4, 8:17). The way you seek after wisdom and how you prioritise it is a reflection of your understanding of how life works. Men of destiny prioritise wisdom but fools despise knowledge (Proverbs 1:7). Fools prioritise physical and tangible things above intangible things like wisdom. The wisdom of God is not necessarily the same as human smartness. Human smartness is based on the ability to make moves or take steps based on the physical, what you can see or hear, while divine wisdom is a function of tapping into the intelligence of God; taking steps alongside what God is showing or saying.

Most times, the wisdom of God will not make sense to the human brain but it must make faith in your heart. This is why someone would want to despise the wisdom of God in dipping seven times in a river to be healed of leprosy (2 Kings 5:9-12). It is why someone would see no sense in filling water pots with water when what we are looking for is new wine (John 2:6-8). The wisdom of God, as against the smartness of men, is why people would have to match seven times round a high wall to make it fall flat or crumble (Joshua 6:1-20). It is why someone may see no hope in five loaves of bread and two fishes in feeding thousands of people (John 6:9). It is the very reason why someone would disdain a prophetic word given a nation that there would be an economic turn around within a space of twenty four hours (2 Kings 7:1-2).

The key is this, it becomes divine wisdom when it is at the instance of God. This is why we must heed the words of the mother of Jesus that, “…whatever he tells you to do, do it” (John 2:5). This is wisdom. It is hearing God and acting along that line. It is taking Holy Spirit led steps even when it looks foolish to human senses. This must be your decision this season, “whatever He (God) tells you to do, do it.” Be it in business, marriage, career, ministry and what have you. Know that God has a wisdom way for every tight situation in and around your life. You need to be swift to hear and to act. God has promised that, “…your ear will hear a word from behind you saying, ‘this is the way, walk in it’.” (Isaiah 30:21). May you receive the instruction of wisdom today, and may you experience stability, safety and success this season in Jesus name!

It’s a blessed day for you!

Go and win with Jesus!
