What is wisdom? The quality of having experience in a thing. The quality of being wise.
The four different types of wisdom;
⁃ Earthy kind of wisdom. Some call it common sense
⁃ Sensual or intellectual kind of wisdom.
⁃ Demonic kind of wisdom. Familiar spirit, witchcraft.
⁃ Wisdom from above.
Wisdom from above sets you apart from every other person. This wisdom makes you stand out. It gives you insight to things. Life is not about your age but your discovery. Your fear is as a result of your ignorance. A lot of things you are scared of, if you have more insight to it, you would no longer fear it. Just like light that never fears darkness. As children of God we should be over every challenges of life; & for that to happen, you need wisdom.
How to access the wisdom from above;
⁃ Tireless study of God's word. Search the word of God!
⁃ Joy and rejoicing. If you are not joyful, the holly spirit will not dwell in you. For the devil to oppress you, you have to be depressed. Refuse to be depressed!
To keep the flow of wisdom, you must continually acknowledge God as the source. Every child of God we carry great potential. Every child of God is ordained us as kings and queens to reign on the earth.
How to retain the access of the wisdom from above;
⁃ You must be spiritual. Don't take the things of God so casually. Christianity and church is not a social gathering.
⁃ You must be prayerful. Don't pray absent-minded prayers.
⁃ You must be sensitive. Be sensitive to the things and voice of God.
⁃ You must be a kingdom advancer & lover of God. To see destiny fulfilled, you must be steadfast and consistent with your walk with God.
⁃ God have mercy on me. Everywhere I have fallen short of your glory, Lord have mercy.
⁃ God, release upon me the spirit of wisdom that I will be able to discern, to make the right decisions.
⁃ God, rekindle my prayer life.
⁃ Lord, give me the spirit to be sensitive in the spirit to your voice and your dictate.
