Seeds of Destiny 21st August 2021 Devotional Message
Wisdom is critical to the fulfilment of life and destiny. People reign when wisdom is in place. Wisdom is the secret of stardom.
On the other hand, the absence of wisdom is a major reason for failure in life.
Now, why is wisdom necessary?
1. The absence of wisdom leads to the wastage of both time and life.
The absence of wisdom leads to the wastage of both time and life, in this world and in the world to come. There are many people today whose lives are being wasted because of the absence of wisdom.
Psalms 90:12 says,
So teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
When you know how to utilize your time well, you live well. Where wisdom is not in place, time becomes a waste-able commodity. When wisdom is not in place, life is wasted.
So, to walk in the way of wisdom is to avoid the tragedy of a wasted life.
2. Wisdom guarantees ruler-ship and command on earth.
For anybody to rule over the forces of iniquity, adversity, poverty and the enemy on earth, wisdom is needed. Wisdom is the guarantee of ruler-ship and command on earth.
Proverbs 8:15 says,
By me kings reign, and princes decree justice.
This is the Voice of wisdom. The difference between being an overcomer and being an “undergoer” is wisdom. There are those who overcome, and there are those who undergo. There are those who are in charge, and there are those who are under control. The difference between these two categories of people is wisdom.
Make up your mind therefore, to pursue and live by wisdom.
Remember This: To walk in the way of wisdom is to avoid the tragedy of wasted life.
1. Make up your mind to pursue wisdom by all means.
2. Avoid the way of foolishness.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the fresh impartation of the Spirit of Wisdom. Deliver me from the life of foolishness, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: It is a great deal of wisdom to rely on God. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Jeremiah 46-48
REFLECTION: Wisdom is a person. And that person is Jesus Christ. Nearness to Him is access to wisdom. Distance from Him is distance from wisdom. How close are you to Him?
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Receive the fresh Baptism of the Spirit of wisdom in Jesus’ Name.
