Ephesians 3:10-11 (KJV) To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God, According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord
Henry observed that his marriage was falling apart. He had made very many foolish and selfish decisions that made him contemptible to his inlaws and his wife. The damage now seemed irreparable and divorce seemed inevitable. Unknown to him, his marriage was under the manipulation of demonic principalities in his family. They had concluded on the desolation of his marriage from the day he got married. He would later discover this through the confession of a relative who was delivered from sorcery and witchcraft.
But after accepting the Lord Jesus and allowing the word of God rule his life, because of this, he started walking in such wisdom that his marriage that was falling apart became very strong and happy again. This dimension of wisdom confounded the principalities that had concluded their plans to destroy his marriage and life. The demonic principalities in his village had concluded that his marriage was going to be destroyed, but after becoming a disciple of Christ, through obedience to the word of God, Henry walked in the wisdom that confounded the principalities and powers, and his marriage was saved.
Even though the devil and his principalities have been around for a very long time, and they have been exposed to see firsthand the power and the wisdom of God, there are dimensions of God’s wisdom that will only be revealed to them through the church–this is an awesome privilege for us believers.
If you are a member of the body of Christ, you are to walk in God’s great wisdom because one of our mandates as Christ’s church is the Revelation of the wisdom of God. Jesus sent us as sheep among wolves and expects us to survive and dominate because we are to walk in superior wisdom. He says we should be as wise as serpents and as gentle as doves (see Matthew 10:6). Serpents are so wise that despite the fact that they have no limbs, they are able to continue to survive in the wild because they understand the power of their tongue and are very purposeful in all their movements. Children of God should be the wisest people walking the face of the earth.
Go into today remembering to ask God for wisdom concerning every situation that may seek to trouble your heart. As a child of God through faith in Christ, God will give you His wisdom if you would only ask in faith(see James 1:5)
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for making me an advertiser of your wisdom. From today, please help me depend on you and walk in greater measures of your wisdom and power, In Jesus’ name. Amen. Amen.
