“Hear; for I will speak of excellent things; and the opening of my lips shall be right things.” Proverbs 8:6
In these times, more than ever before, we need the ever-present wisdom and counsel of the Holy Spirit! We need to know how to answer those who oppose us, those who mandate that our decisions conform to theirs, and governments who have recently ordained themselves as the religious hierarchy of America. In the context of the times we’re living in, Jesus, standing in the office of prophet, looked ahead to our day and saw how we would be treated for expressing our faith in Christ and not in the new world order. In Luke 21:14-15, Jesus said, “Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer. For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.”
It says in the great Apostolic prayer of Ephesians 1:17-23, that we need to ask God for the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus. It’s not knowledge alone that has the power to carry us through these coming days. Neither is Wisdom alone enough. It’s the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus that empowers us to stand in difficult situations. It’s revelation knowledge that gives us spiritual stamina to stand when the rest of the so-called believing world caves in. In order to stand in Christ, walk in Christ and receive from God through Christ, we need to have Him revealed to us, and it’s the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus that reveals the simplicity and power that is vested in the risen Christ! That’s the same power that was vested in each of us when we were born again!
Wisdom’s excellence comes through revealed knowledge from the Holy Spirit! That knowledge is an active knowledge of Jesus, His resurrection, His life in the believer, all working together to produce supernatural confidence that exudes from believers in situations that would make most men shake in their boots! This wisdom cannot be counterfeited, mimicked, or copied. This wisdom is the excellent wisdom from God that is available to all believers! The Ephesian prayer in was given to the Church for a reason, to bring wisdom and revelation that the world cannot resist! It’s the wisdom and knowledge of Christ that has been hidden right out in the open that could never have been accessed if it had not been revealed.
Ask your Father for the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Jesus. Ask Him to reveal Jesus to you! Pray the prayer in Ephesians 1:17-23 as I mentioned earlier.
Jesus longs to reveal Himself to anyone who will ask. He said, “For everyone that asks receives; and he that seeks finds; and to him that knocks it shall be OPENED….
