Give me Wisdom by Abioye Joshua

Proverbs 2:6 KJV: For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

What a Faithful God! May His name be praised forever. Amen

2 Chronicles 1:7,10 KJV: In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee.
[10] GIVE ME NOW WISDOM and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?

If God should ask us the kind of question He asked Solomon in the Holy Scriptures and say “Son/Daughter! Ask what I should give thee(you)”. Am very sure of the responses God will get (money, promotions, scholarships etc). Well, they are good but permit me to say this ” there is something greater than these things, there is something special that encompasses all these we are asking for” and that was what the man called Solomon asked for.

Solomon said Give me wisdom what a reasonable being, He knew if he has wisdom, he has all things. Why could Solomon be asking for wisdom when other things were on ground???
If there is anything to acquire while on earth, BELIEVE ME, it is WISDOM
Proverbs 4:7 KJV: WISDOM IS THE PRINCIPAL THING; therefore get WISDOM and with all thy getting get understanding.

Note: Not just a thing but a PRINCIPAL(PRIMARY, MOST IMPORTANT, CHIEF, MAIN) thing.

NOT SECONDARY but PRIMARY which means it is meant to be acquired first before all things.
NOT IMPORTANT but MOST IMPORTANT which means admist thousands of things, Wisdom is number 1.
CHIEF not SERVANT which means Head of all things

But it is quite unfortunate that while praying we are neglecting to ask for the Principal thing! Nothing can be compared with Wisdom!
Proverbs 8:11 KJV: For wisdom is better than rubies; AND ALL(not some) THE THINGS THAT MAY BE DESIRED ARE NOT TO BE COMPARED TO IT.

Give me Wisdom by Abioye Joshua

Wisdom has a high rank to the extent that ALL WHAT GOD CREATED WAS DONE WITH WISDOM
Proverbs 3:19 KJV: The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

The Holy Bible says
Proverbs 16:16 KJV: How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver!

Wisdom is the Principal thing Anything that it cost will you and I to get WISDOM, we must do it!

Briefly, let me highlight why WISDOM IS CONSIDERED TO BE THE PRINCIPAL(MOST IMPORTANT, CHIEF AND PRIMARY) THING

  1. God Himself is Wisdom and He experimented it with All He created.
  2. Wisdom controls all things, others things are servants to Wisdom.
  3. To be rich, you need wisdom, after being rich, to remain being rich, it takes wisdom
  4. Kings and Queens bow to Wisdom, The world respects Wisdom. This could be traced to Solomon! Wisdom earns respect and Honour! The words of the wise are gracious and has a positive impact.
  5. To be Happy, you need Wisdom. Proverbs 3:13 KJV: Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
  6. Husbands and Wives!!! You need Wisdom. For you to build your house, Wisdom is needed! Proverbs 24:3 KJV: Through wisdom is an house builded; and by understanding it is established:
    All what you are seeking is not what will make your marriage last. Believe me Sir/Ma! Wisdom is what you need!
    • Wives – The Bible says “A wise woman builds her home” Instead of fighting unnecessarily with your husband, why can’t you cry to God, the owner and giver of Wisdom to give you Wisdom so as for you to know how to build your house.
    • Husbands – It is good to seek money but there is something greater than money, it is Wisdom, not all time you will have money, you might even have money but what if there is no peace in the Home??? You need Wisdom to control and lead your Family in the way of God
  7. Students–Wisdom is needed SERIOUSLY
    In answering question
    Luke 2:46-47 KJV: And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions. [47] And all that heard him were astonished at his understanding and answers.
    This was Jesus being a student(People were astonished at His Understanding and answers). See the display of Wisdom!!! Students we need Wisdom
    • In making decisions
    • To know who to move with
    • Not to go astray from the Plan and Purpose is God of one’s life
  8. TEACHERS/LECTURERS: Sir/Ma!!! Believe me, what you need is Wisdom.
    • To teach
    • To explain
    • To answer questions: The difference is always in Wisdom. You will see someone, despite being brilliant, He or she doesn’t know how to teach!
    • To overcome temptations from Students… Wisdom is needed
  9. PREACHERS: Wisdom is needed:
    • To preach the Gospel
    • To interpret the scripture
    • To teach
    • To answer questions – See the display of Jesus’ wisdom in answering questions from Pharisees and Sadducees
    • To unravel mysteries
      The wisdom of God will reveal the word of God to you. It will open your spiritual eye to see the mystery in that passage.
      Why will you be preaching and people will always be sleeping? Something is missing! Jesus’ teachings was full of wisdom to the extent that people were always eager to hear Him. Why do people hiss whenever we are about to preach? If your teaching is full of wisdom, they will be eager to hear from you! We need Wisdom
  10. Wisdom is needed to know when to speak and when to be silent…. Jesus as an example! Was wondering why could Jesus be silent in some places e.g before King Herod etc. Jesus was/is teaching us that there are places you need not to talk, there are places you need to be silent hence you cause yourself disaster! Not everything you see or know you speak out! You need wisdom! Some people are already a victim of this!
  11. To wins souls for God – Wisdom is needed.
    Proverbs 11:30 KJV: The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.
  12. To make Heaven! To meet the Bridegroom which is Jesus when He returns, You need Wisdom! You need to be wise not just a VIRGIN but A WISE VIRGIN that is always prepared for His coming

Give me Wisdom by Abioye Joshua

Wisdom is the PRINCIPAL thing! I have not seen anything you need without Wisdom Then Why are we neglecting asking for the principal thing???

With all these mentioned above, believe Wisdom is what asking God for.

THEN, HOW CAN I GET WISDOM???
With all these have mentioned, am sure you would have been praying “Lord! Give me Wisdom”
Proverbs 2:6 KJV: For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
The Lord is the Giver of Wisdom!
Job 12:12-13 KJV: With the ancient is wisdom; and in length of days understanding. [13] With him(God) is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.
God is the owner of Wisdom and He is saying:
James 1:5 KJV: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. If you lack, Ask(there is a place of asking, it is meant to be asked for)!

Matthew 7:7 KJV: ASK, and it shall be GIVEN you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be open you:
This is the promise of God! You need wisdom! Ask! You must ask first before you will be given! That’s the heavenly principle. Solomon asked! He received! You need Wisdom?? Ask!!!!!

But!!! Before you ask, Here is the clause attached to it so that your asking won’t be in vain

Matthew 7:6 KJV: Give not that which is HOLY unto the DOGS, neither cast ye your PEARL before SWINE, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.

Wisdom is Holy(Anything that comes from the Father is Holy because God is Holy and EVERYTHING ABOUT HIM IS HOLY)

Here is the Problem:
Give not that which is Holy(Wisdom) unto the dogs and cast not your pearls unto the swine

What a strange thing!!!
God is saying “Even if I will give out Wisdom, not to DOGS NOR SWINE(PIGS). My gifts are not for them”

Before you start praying for WISDOM, Will you permit me to ask you, ARE YOU NOT A DOG OR SWINE(PIG)???

  • Dogs are known for their promiscuity
  • Dogs are known for going back to their vomits Aren’t you a dog? Aren’t you going back to old life? What you said you had laid down at the feet of Jesus, aren’t you going back to take it back??? Dogs???? If you are a Dog! Wisdom is not meant for you! First resolve it first God!
  • PIGS are known for their dirtiness. No matter how they have been washed, they get themselves dirty/polluted back!….. Aren’t you a Pig??? God is Holy and Pure, He has nothing to do with filthiness!!

Check yourself, Ask yourself! “Am I worthy to receive this Holy thing from God?? Am I not a Dog? Am I not a Pig??
And still, God is saying “If you lack wisdom, ASK” God is saying “I wish to give you but not unto Dogs or Pigs, this gift is Holy, This wisdom is Holy”
Same goes to all Spiritual gifts
Amend your ways!!!! I, the Lord give WISDOM
Come Unto Me!!! Repent of your Sins! Your years of struggling is enough, what you need is my Wisdom!
You can’t get Wisdom except you be my own! Come!!! I have Holy things to give out, numerous they are! Come!

Remember!!!
Wisdom is the PRINCIPAL thing, therefore get WISDOMGive me Wisdom oh Lord, I need your Wisdom

The Lord bless you! Keep you! And Make His Face Shine Upon You!
Happy Last Sunday of the Month of May!
