In him, we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding (Ephesians 1:7-8 NIV)
This is so beautiful! I wish God’s people will be wisdom-conscious in addition to being grace-conscious. The same way that He has lavished His grace on you, in superabundance, so has He abounded towards you in all wisdom and prudence.
Just as grace is of the Spirit, and can be multiplied in your life through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord (2 Peter 1:2), so is the wisdom of the Spirit. In addition, you grow in wisdom through the Word. God’s Word has the divine ability to impart wisdom to your spirit: “And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise…” (2 Timothy 3:15).
If you’re born again, Christ has been made unto you wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:30). Divine wisdom is a product of your recreated human spirit that you must be conscious of, just as you’re conscious of the grace of God that brought you salvation. Acknowledge that you have the wisdom of God functioning in you! The Bible says, “That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus” (Philemon 1:6).
When you acknowledge wisdom, wisdom will promote you; as a force, it’ll control and propel you to say and do the right things. Wisdom causes you to be in the center of God’s will for your life, gloriously fulfilling your divine purpose in Him. It’ll change everything about you. You’ll have divine insight into mysteries and secrets, and be able to deal wisely in the affairs of life, knowing the right steps to take in everything you do.
Excitingly, wisdom is already in your spirit! All you need do is recognize it; confess the Word and walk in it! As you do, wisdom will exalt, promote, and bring exceeding beauty and excellence into your life.
