Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:6-8.
The wisdom of God is not for all and not in all. Wisdom is personalized and a person and ordained for our glory. Jesus is the wisdom and power of God. The chosen, elect, called are recipients of the hidden wisdom and power of God. The wisdom and power of God are keys to distinction in life. The best should lead the rest; God’s wisdom terminates worldly wisdom. The chosen, called and elect are seen in every generation. They are saviours, solution providers, and pacesetters, first among the best. Joseph was distinguished because Egypt recognized the wisdom of God in him. Egypt was preserved by the wisdom of God at work in Joseph. Oh that my nation will find its own Joseph’s and not Balak. Every generation that ignores or disdains the wisdom of God is doomed. Corruption elevates foolishness over the wisdom of God. Such nations pay dearly for foolishness. When the wisdom and power of God comes, that of the world is subdued. Until the elect with this wisdom is found, the destiny of men and nations are bound.
Do not assume wisdom, it is hidden in a mystery and revealed to the chosen. It is given freely, and obtained by the revelation of the word of God. The wisdom of God is in levels, your faithfulness determines influence. The wisdom for distinction is revealed to you now. Be the answer and solution provider to every age old question around you. Interprete dreams, give visions, offer direction, lead the way. Become the Joseph of your family, neighbourhood, community and nation.
“And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, I have dreamed a dream, and there is none that can interpret it:and I have heard say of thee, that thou canst understand a dream to interpret it. And Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me:God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.”Genesis 41:15-16.
