Here’s another lesson on walking on the royal, glorious, manifold, wisdom of God’s path. In Luke 21:15, Jesus said, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.” That is a powerful verse.
Then, if you look in Acts 6:10 in the time of the adversary putting pressure on Steven, the 10th verse says: “And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake.”
Now, wisdom was one of the greatest characteristics of Jesus’s Life and His ministry. In Luke 2:40, 52 it gives us an aspect of Jesus’s ministry.
Let me go there a minute because I want to work with you on living the life of wisdom and dealing with things from another perspective and another realm, another power, and another understanding that will stop all the other things.
Notice that in Luke 2:40 it says: “And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him,” or the favor of God was upon him. Then, in the 52nd verse of Luke 2:52, “And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Now, I would propose this to you as you are praying about things and getting direction, maybe to help somebody else, if Jesus needed to be filled with wisdom, you and I need to stay filled with wisdom. So today, i want you to ask God to fill you with wisdom that everything you handle today, you may handle it in the wisdom of God. He will do it if you ask Him. He will fill you with His wisdom.
Jesus’s ministry was based on operating in the wisdom of God. Now, that verse in Luke 21:15, He said, he will give you a mouth and wisdom. Some people just have a mouth, but He said he will give you a mouth and wisdom, and He said that when your mouth is filled with His wisdom, the enemy don’t stand a chance. The enemy can not stop you. The enemy cannot overtake you, so there’s a word of wisdom. There’s a word, right now that can be placed in your mouth or placed in your house or placed in your heart. And one of the things I want to emphasize to you is that this wisdom is needed to flow through your soul, through your inner man, through your heart. In your spirit, you are the wisdom of God, but out of your spirit, it has to go through your soul, to your thinking and to your imagination to show you how to function in the wisdom of God. Jesus said, “For I will give you a mouth and wisdom,” so that’s a mouth with wisdom in it. It’s sort of like Joshua 1:8: this book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth.
