The spirit of wisdom refers to the operations of the spirit of God in wisdom; manifesting himself in revelation.
Main Text: Ephesians 1:17-20
Watchword: The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, The Spirit of wisdom and understanding, The Spirit of counsel and might, The Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the Lord. (Isaiah 11:2) NKJV
The Spirit of wisdom brings us revelation in the exact knowledge of God. When the Spirit of wisdom has His way in our lives, it will bring us a revelation that gives us insight into mysteries and secrets. He brings us light that will flood our path and illumine our minds to have such extraordinary amplitude of comprehension. He will also bring us counsel and direction, such that life ceases to be mysterious to us.
The more we know Jesus and have a revelation of His unmerited favor in our lives, the more we will have the spirit of wisdom. It is one thing to have the Holy Spirit inside of us, but it is another thing to let the Holy Spirit inside us flow as the spirit of wisdom and revelation. Wisdom is the Holy Spirit applied to our situation and helping us to penetrate divine truth that prepares us to judge all things according to that truth.
Only God can give us a receptive attitude to His truth. (2 Peter 1:3). The spirit of wisdom and revelation is not some mysterious blessing given to a special few, and it is not just the ability to speak as a prophet. Rather, it is the work of the Holy Spirit to help us as people of God to understand the things of God more fully and completely. Wisdom gives us insight into God while revelation unveils the truth about Him. Still, the more we study the Bible, the better we will know God.
Confession: Heavenly Father, thank You that we have been saved by grace through faith in You. Help us to understand the great grace and power that has already been given to us as your body.
Prayer: Oh Lord, I ask for the spirit of wisdom and revelation that I may look at my life wisely and know You more.
