As the beginning of 2018 is right before us, I love to ask God for a word for 2018. 2017 was a year of breakthrough, breakthrough involves breaking and I know many of us experienced that. About a month ago God gave me in a dream 2 words for next year: Wisdom and wealth.
God spoke that as a family, as we have pursued love we are positioned to hear and receive Wisdom. Wisdom doesn’t deny a problem but is the solution to any challenge we face. Wisdom is the answer for our lives, our relationships, our destinies, our communities and our Nations. Wisdom and Power work hand-in-hand to accomplish the work of love. Proverbs 8:6 (TPT) says:
The meaning of my words will release within you revelation for you to reign in life
God is a God of creation, order, sequence and transformation and Wisdom is how He builds. I would encourage you to read this chapter, meditate and hear the voice of Wisdom for your life, your family, your city and Nations.
I love to meditate that no matter how bad something is looking that leader is not on top because wisdom is on top of the mountains of influence (government, church, business etc). Verse 14 tells us that what we need to fulfill his plans are found within his hands:
I hold in my hands living-understanding, courage and strength
I believe God has raised up people to be His voice in all ways in all Nations. The question is: What do you hear wisdom saying? And if you haven’t heard anything, ask God daily for the Spirit of Wisdom and create space in your life to hear Her words. The fruit of Wisdom in your life is wealth and glory. Not a man-made version of pleasuring self with greed and power but a wealth and glory that disciples Nations and raises communities into their fullness.
As we begin a new year, let’s pursue the voice of Wisdom. Verses 34-35 say:
If you wait at wisdom’s doorway, longing to hear a word for every day, joy will break forth within you as you listen for what I’ll say. For the fountain of life pours into you every time that you find me, and this is the secret of growing in the delight and favour of the Lord
