The Power of Spiritual Wisdom


One does not teeter on the fence of decision-making when they are called to transcend barriers. Their focus should not be swayed by the external forces compelling them to choose. Instead, serenity and the readiness to respond will manifest when their attention is devoted to the Word.

Exposition on the book of Ephesians


I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

Ephesians 4:1


  • Understand your calling, and paths will emerge for you to heed and pursue it. Act in a manner that honors your vocation. Remember, it wasn’t by your will power that you entered this calling; you were summoned to serve the Lord.

ALL THINGS


The greatness of God is beyond everything and definitely whatsoever you are going through.


Let us look at John chapter 1 verse three. (John 1:3) For an insight to the phrase “all things.”

Who are you? Do you truly know yourself? You know your name, but it was given to you by someone else, not of your own choosing. So, who are you really? You have your own thoughts, but can you control them? Are you truly in control?

Pause and look at the time on your wristwatch or device. Do you see the time? Say it out loud. Then, consider your surroundings, whether you’re at home or somewhere else. Look at the time again and pause.

Can you confidently say that you control what will happen around you an hour from now? So, are you really in control as you think you are?

Being aware of the time doesn’t mean you control your destiny. If you’re not in the driver’s seat of life, do you even know where you’re headed? Even now, you can’t hold a perfect thought to ponder this question.…

If we confess our sins, the Lord is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

1 John 1:9


The concept of sin often extends beyond actions to encompass thoughts and attitudes toward others. It’s important to remember that self-examination is a daily process. As we draw closer to the Light of the Lord, we may become more aware of our imperfections. This doesn’t necessarily mean we are becoming more sinful, but rather that our understanding of right and wrong is becoming clearer. This heightened awareness can guide us towards personal growth and spiritual development. It’s a journey of continuous learning and accountability.


But if we confess our sins to God, he will keep his promise and do what is right: he will forgive us our sins and purify us from all our wrongdoing.

Does the three "Woes" from Isaiah chapter 5 a call against the world or the believer?


Isaiah 5:20-22


The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.

Psalms 119:130

In the verse above, the term “the entrance” signifies an “opening”. For the rest of this year, make it a habit to open your Bible every morning to kickstart your day. Before you delve into reading, take a moment to pray for guidance on where to begin.

The phrase “gives light” embodies the concept of dawn, symbolizing the start of a glorious day.

As we unveil His messages to us through Bible reading, may our day be filled with the enlightenment of understanding and glory. With the innocence of a child, let us allow the Lord to guide us, rather than allowing the unresolved issues of life to impose upon us a state of discomfort and worry.

Open the Word and receive your blessing.

Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving.

Colossians 4:2


Often, our prayers may seem like complaints to the Lord. However, let's not forget to express our gratitude, not only through our actions and words but also in our prayers. For it is in thankfulness that we truly acknowledge His grace and mercy.

As a believer, you are not under a curse.

In the absence of a curse, blessings should be present. However, two factors can delay your blessings as a believer.


Firstly, your actions can cause a delay if they are misguided.


Secondly, if you are aware of others engaging in wrongful actions and fail to warn them, this can also lead to a delay in your blessings.

“Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.”

Proverbs 4:26


That is to say, do the right thing and do it constantly and let it be the established path you walk on.

Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe: and I will have respect unto thy statutes continually.

Psalms 119:117


In our own ways, we shall go as we please, but become weary if we are not supported by the Lord, continually.

THE TWO PROMISES


“No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 54:17


Herein, we have the two promises. One, of a physical protection that no weapon formed against you will prosper. Observe the terminology used. "No weapon that is formed" against you. Meaning there will be obstacles in your path. Even though you are a believer. However, although these things be formed against you. It shall not harm you. This is the promise of the Lord, but with a condition. Of which we shall careful observe in the conclusion of this exposition.

Insight


Genesis 6:11

The earth also was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence.

Reflect from childhood to now as an adult.

What were those things that were dear to you and those that are dear to you now?

As a child your new toy captures your attention before you fall asleep and in awaken, it is the first thing you seek to look upon and take in your presence.


In relation to this, today’s verse is from Psalms 119:15, we draw the same idea from this passage.

Today, we turn our focus to the 119th Psalm, a passage that many of you may already know. Yet, the unique inspiration and creativity embedded in its composition and presentation often go unnoticed. This exposition aims to shed light on these aspects, enriching our understanding and appreciation of this remarkable Psalm. Let's delve deeper into its profound layers of meaning together.

For an example:

David used the Hebrew Alphabets to layout and introduce the stanza. In the 119th Chapter of Psalms, he started off with the word "ALEPH" This is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet, which is ascribed to God.

In this Psalms, Aleph is used to represent God, the creator and sustainer of all things. It is also used to represent the psalmist's devotion to God and his desire to follow God's law. Consequently, when we are drawn to the Lord, as our Creator He is our…

Insight to your body through your mood and actions.


He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me. Psalms 55:18

Many were your problems, although a few might still be with you. But this day, in the quiet of your heart, try to reflect on where you once were. Your emotions, your struggles, and conflicts. Reflect on those things you have overcome.

And let it be of gladness to you.

Understand this, the Scripture said your body is a temple. This implies more than we realize, as a temple. There are duties and functions that ought to be carried out, and there are those that are responsible for the accomplishing of those things. Likewise, within you, your body which is a temple; there are over 37 trillion cells, and more are being produced at any given time. These cells…

WISDOM FROM THE PROVERBS


Prepare thy work without, and make it fit for thyself in the field; and afterwards build thine house. Proverbs 24:27


In other words, focus on the little things that you rightly do, though difficult at times, but your business should reflect consistency, which will ultimately lead to an establishment. May your question, if need be, Lord what is my business? Bless it, Father that I may find rest therein.

Concerning this verse, Swaggart once said, “Take care first to attend to the business, and the business will ’build the house.’”
