(Walk In God’s Wisdom And Spiritual Understanding)
TO THE BIBLE Colossians 1:9
“For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding”
Imagine walking in the fulfilment of the above prayer! Your life would be an endless manifestation of the excellence of the Spirit. In every place, and in every situation, you’d know exactly what to do. The Prophet Elisha manifested this kind of supernatural understanding and wisdom back in Bible days. One day, he and some other prophets were at Jordan, and as one of them hewed down a tree, his axe-head pulled off and sank in the river. The axe had been borrowed, and so he cried out to Elisha for help (2 Kings 6:5). In his response, Elisha simply cut off a tree branch and tossed it at the spot where the axe-head fell, and instantly, the axe-head floated up to the surface! How did Elisha know to do that? By the wisdom of God!
A similar thing happened with Isaac: There’d been a severe famine in Canaan, and he was about to leave for another city when God instructed him to remain in Canaan. The Bible records that, in spite of the drought, Isaac dug wells and found water. Meanwhile, everyone else did the same and found no water. Also, in that same year, Isaac “…sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous” (Genesis 26:12-13). Why did he prosper exceedingly in a land where everyone else experienced severe hunger, poverty, and deprivation? It was because God gave him supernatural insight as to what to do.
If you study about him in the scriptures, you’ll discover he’s one of those in the Old Testament who, we’re told, often took time to meditate: “And Isaac went out to meditate in the field in the evening…” (Genesis 24:63). Meditating on God’s Word causes you to be filled with the knowledge of God’s will, in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Dear Father, I thank you for granting me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation to know you more and more, with my understanding enlightened for the precision and accuracy of the Spirit at all times, in the Name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
