The Spirit of Wisdom By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Theme: Purpose

Topic: The Spirit of Wisdom

Scripture Reading:
Luke 4:1-19

Main Text:
Isaiah 11:2
2  And 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 of the fear of the LORD;

Wisdom is the application of knowledge and understanding to obtain results. It is the practical application of knowledge and understanding. With wisdom, we formulate strategies to win. Wisdom produces skilfulness in people. The anointing gives us skill to produce excellence. It is strange when people claim to be anointed but are very disorganised and unproductive. Others speak without discretion and claim to be under the anointing. Foolish talk has nothing to do with the anointing. A speaker must know how to address his or her audience. There are acceptable standards for public speaking. We cannot break the rules under the pretext of being under the anointing (Ecclesiastes 10:1-2).

We must be wise in mind, word and action. Understanding is the coordination of knowledge whereas wisdom is the application of coordinated knowledge. We cannot apply knowledge we don’t understand. Understanding however, is vain until we apply it to solve problems and demonstrate God’s power. Jesus Christ increased in wisdom and stature (Luke 2:49-52). Jesus Christ operated in wisdom during His earthly ministry and this enabled Him to avoid conflict when it was necessary to do so. It is common for the anointing to face opposition and persecution. Wisdom enables us to avoid unnecessary battles or sustain injuries God did not sanction in our lives.

A typical example of the Spirit of wisdom operating in Jesus Christ’s life was the action He took when the Pharisees tried to entangle Him with the issue of paying tax to Caesar. He applied wisdom and told the audience to give to Caesar what was Caesar’s and to God what was God’s (Matthew 22:15-22). Jesus Christ was not afraid of Caesar but He did not come to the earth to argue about matters of taxation. He came to seek and save the lost. Our Saviour did not allow Himself to be diverted. He knew His assignment. Wisdom stays on course and chooses its battles wisely.

1. Pray and ask God for special wisdom in your area of life.
2. Pray also that the wisdom God gives you will be seen and bring you blessings.

Acts 13:22
22 And when he had removed him, he raised up unto them David to be their king; to whom also he gave testimony, and said, I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart, which shall fulfil all my will.From yesterday's devotional, we know that Without  purpose, life  is meaningless  and  unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed  and  anointed, and that God definitely created you for a purpose. God  anoints  you for a purpose.  Purpose  is  the  reason for the anointing.  Without purpose the anointing is either  wasted or abused. It is needful to also note that God  anoints people for a  purpose.You are  anointed to serve God  and touch people’s lives.  A powerful anointing  produces supernatural  results in others. God  anointed King David,  a  man after His…

Main Text:Genesis 1:28And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth,  and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of  the sea, and over the fowl  of the air, and over every living thing that moveth  upon the earth.The Oxford dictionary  defines “purpose” as the reason for which something is done or created or for which something exists. Without purpose, life  is meaningless and unfulfilling. It is important for you to discover the purpose for which you were created,  blessed and anointed.  Purpose is not the prerogative of  a privileged few in the world – everybody should know his or her purpose in life.God created you for a purpose. He created  Adam and Eve and gave them the divine mandate to rule the universe and make the earth productive (Genesis 1:28). The  earth has great potential but it takes human beings to …

The Seven Spirits of God By Rev Eastwood Anaba

Topic: The Seven Spirits of God
Scripture Reading:
Isaiah 11:1-2; Luke 4:1-19
Main Text:
Revelation 4:5
5 And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.
In  Isaiah  11:1-2, the  prophet Isaiah describes the seven-fold nature of the Spirit of the LORD who would rest on the Messiah. The Holy Ghost rests upon you with His perfect nature to subdue your human nature. His seven-fold nature overwrites your human inadequacies. His nature is superior to your human nature. He is what and who you are not. He does what you cannot do and gives what you cannot give.
In the book of  Revelation, John referred to the seven Spirits of God (Revelation 4:5). There is only one Holy Ghost so the term seven Spirits of God refers to the seven-fold character of the Holy Ghost. There is one Spirit with a seven-fold characterisation. Isaiah 11…
