Wisdom For The Day Devotional 9 April 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – You Need Wisdom
TOPIC: You Need Wisdom (TREM Devotional 9 April 2022)
“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” James 1:5 (NIV)
It is no news that we are living in very precarious times. There are challenges everywhere you turn. This is why you need the wisdom of God. From the moment you wake up till the moment you fall asleep, you need the wisdom of God. I am sure you are wondering what I mean. You see, you cannot afford to leave your house without seeking the wisdom of God because the roads are not safe. The only place of safety is in Jesus Christ. The awesome thing is that God has promised to give us this wisdom when we ask.
If we must walk in the reality of God’s promises, then we need the wisdom of God. On a daily basis, take out time to ask God for wisdom concerning every area of your life. Don’t just rush out through the door daily and say it doesn’t matter. Don’t sign that business deal without asking for the wisdom of God. If we learned anything from previous and current happenings, it is that man does not have the answer. The best of man is still man. It is only God that knows the end from the beginning, and therefore it is vitally important that we seek wisdom from Him.
The book of Proverbs 4:7 tells us that: “Wisdom is the principal thing”. And so, we must pursue it with every fiber of our being.
Wisdom will make you to be a sought after.
Wisdom will cause you to stand before kings and not mean men.
Wisdom will open doors for you.
Wisdom will make you the preferred person.
Make up your mind to go after wisdom. It was the wisdom of God that enabled Joseph to interpret Pharaoh’s dream. It was wisdom that led to his promotion to the position of Prime Minister. It was the wisdom of God that also enabled Daniel to interpret the king’s dream.
Child of God, pay the price, spend time in the presence of God and go after wisdom.
Proverbs 8:1-21; Daniel 2:24-49

I delight myself in the Lord and He gives me the desires of my heart. There is no lack, for my God supplies all of my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (PS 37:4, Philippians 4:19)
The Lord has made me a blessing; I am blessed going out and blessed coming in. He will cause the shower to come down in its season. There shall be showers of blessing. The trees of my field will yield their fruit and the earth shall yield her increase. And I shall be safe in the land. I shall lay-up gold as dust and as the stones of the brook. Yea, the Almighty shall be my defense and I shall have plenty of silver (Deuteronomy 28:6, Levi 26:4, Job 22:24-25)
Every day, and in every way, I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavor.
I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
