1 Corinthians 2:7-8 (KJV) But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
Apostle Paul reminded the Corinthian Church that he did not come to them preaching the wisdom of men; he came with the power of God. He also told them that the wisdom he preaches is superior to the wisdom of this world. It is the wisdom of God.
Wisdom is the proper application of knowledge that helps a person achieve his given goals (see Pro 24:3).
The greater the goal, the higher and greater the degree of wisdom required. For instance, generally, you would need more wisdom to be president of a country than to be class rep of your class.
The destination for every Christian is much higher than what the world can imagine. We can see this because we are born again (see John 3:3). We walk in the superior wisdom that the unbeliever cannot understand. This wisdom helps us get to our destination.
Our goal as children of God is the kingdom of God. Not just that we hope to physically be in the kingdom someday, but we are to bring the reality of the kingdom into this present world.
Go into today knowing that the wisdom God gives you is superior to that of the world. The world is focused on getting treasure that can be destroyed. We are gathering treasures that cannot be destroyed; that has relevance is all realms of existence, including this present world.
Prayer: Ask God to help you walk more in His wisdom.
—Abraham Damilola Arigi
