WISDOM FROM HEAVEN
January 20, 2021
The wisdom of heaven always prevails! The Apostle James said, “But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.” James 3:17
This is deep insight, and yet more could be said on the virtues of wisdom. But the key here is that wisdom is from above, more adequately, it is from God almighty, the discerner of hearts, the revealer of things, the omniscient One!
As Pastors, in the pursuit of godly wisdom, we must be willing to confront our own notions, suspicions or biases that we often call discernment or wisdom. In order to establish the better, a wisdom that is: pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. I believe that the downfall of the Wisest man (Solomon) ever was the failure to constantly seek the wisdom of heaven.
The pastoral role will bring you challenges, but never confusion; complications, but never bitter frustrations; set-backs, but never ultimate defeat; delays, but never the fracture of faith; surprises, but never the loss of expectation; disappointments, but never the annulment of hope! Wisdom will navigate you through it all! In every ministerial and personal trial there are breakthroughs where only the wisdom of God can outline the possibilities and manifest what is needed (miracles).
I pray that in 2021 you are inundated with the Wisdom of Heaven. May you move effortlessly and prosperously in everything that you lay your hands to. May you blossom forth in your spiritual person; may your dreams sprout forth with zeal and life; may your ministry burst forth with increase, with an overflow of souls, competent leaders, resources and an unquenchable passion for the Kingdom.
2021 will be a year of increased spiritual engagement. I know that you are ready. The wisdom of heaven will guide you. It will strengthen you. It will establish and bring you into perpetual victories. Seek HIS wisdom, above all.
I love you all dearly. As always, never hesitate to reach out to me if you need anything. I am not a micromanager J So if I don’t hear from you, I take it as “all is well.” Be free and confident to share what you need and/or prayer request. This is our journey together.
I am looking forward to great things this year!
