Isaiah 11:1- the spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him, The spirit of wisdom and understanding.  I will stop there and move to Verse 3- And He will delight in the fear of the Lord. And he will not judge by what His eyes see.

I’m gonna stop there. From the above verses, I will be looking at The Spirit of Wisdom. The Bible is talking about Jesus the wisdom of God.

The Spirit of Wisdom

The definition of wisdom biblically is a divine gift from God. It’s not acquired in college and it does not come with a diploma. It is a gift for any believer who desires it.

According to James 1:5: If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach and it will be given him.

How many of us have ever prayed for God’s wisdom when you ask God for something special or a need. Do you ever pray for wisdom? When God asked Solomon what do you want me to do for you, He responded I want wisdom to direct your people that you have put in my care. Proverbs 2:6 It’s God that gives wisdom, from His mouth comes forth knowledge and discernment. This means wisdom is not from google, not from YouTube, cannot be found in any search engine. Even the devil knows the importance of wisdom and that’s why he will do anything against us so as not to see the need for wisdom or to seek after it.

Proverbs 4:7- Wisdom is the principal thing, it’s the main thing, the chief thing, therefore get wisdom and with all thy getting get understanding.

Wisdom is not Common Sense

Living a life of fulfillment does not depend on common sense. A life of victory does not depend on your common sense With common sense you can differentiate white from black, but it takes wisdom to know the difference between white and holiness. Wisdom says holiness in not synonymous to white. 

Let’s go back to our text- Isaiah 11, when the spirit of the Lord rest upon Him. He shall not judge after the sight of his eyes.

  • He cannot be deceived by eye service.
  • He shall not judge by appearance
  • He shall not make conclusions by what He sees

This means He shall judge by things unseen. If as an heir of the kingdom all you see is from your two physical eyes, then you are in trouble. Things unseen may rule your marriage, affect your home, destroy your business, ruin your relationships, take hold of your destiny. These two eyes are for physical activities. Imagine life without eyes, then imagine life without wisdom.

There is No Limit, No Boundaries

And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the spirit of wisdom. There is a spiritual vision, spiritual insight, spiritual eyes that is needed to rule and have dominion in life. Without wisdom, living a fulfilled life is impossible, making it to heaven is impossible. Because the Bible says -The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. Proverbs 9:10.

There is a distance in which the physical eye can reach. Study shows about 3 miles standing on a flat surface. But for the spiritual eyes, there is no limit and no boundaries. I have come to remind you that the unseen controls the seen.

The physical is subject to the spiritual. What can you see? What you see controls your action, it propels you to do what you do. Your sight is your vision.

Your spiritual eyes, your relationship with God.

Your spiritual eyes are connected to your relationship with God. What’s your relationship with God like. The wisdom for living is from His mouth. How often do you study the word? Every verse in the Bible was written for us 2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness,

Sharpen your spiritual eyes. This is the time to Seek God more than ever. Life is gonna be better than this. Joy will come in the morning. If only you can see!

Stay spiritually awake, Be awake your success depends on it. “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. Ephesians 6:12.” Wake up from your slumber beloved!

Things that are seen are temporal, things unseen are eternal. When things are wrong in the physical. It was finished already in the spiritual. There is a world unseen in which by grace we are qualified to see.


Nothing is Irreversible in the Spirit

Spend time with God, your prayer should not be less than 30 minutes. How can your destiny survive in this world with 10 minutes prayer. How do you get prepared for the second coming of the lord when you do not have a personal relationship with Him.

I remember anytime I have to be out unexpectedly, I do a short prayer and I will purposely not eat. You may call it fasting. It’s just my own personal discipline to remind me that I have not meet with God, I have not come to Him to hear from Him, and that my day cannot start without my devotion. So I won’t eat until I get back to have my devotion, then I have this peace to go ahead with any other activity.

Develop your spiritual life. There is no situation that is irreversible in the spirit. Let your spirit come alive, no more lukewarmness. If you want to be hot. Be hot, if you want to be cold, be cold. Revelation 3:16 God said “So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth”. It’s time to arise!

Be Spirit Hot                      

When you lack zeal in his service you are lukewarm. When you lack zeal for the things of the Lord you are lukewarm. It says I know your deed, you are neither cold nor hot. How I wish you were one or the other. But because you are lukewarm neither hot nor cold, I am about to vomit you out of my mouth. There’s still hope if you can turn and be who God wants you to be in His service.

Open your eyes brethren, see the wealthy, the poor, those working full time, those working part-time, those that weren’t working. Did we not see that none could go to the grave with money, savings or their debt.

If what you are running after, that you cannot spend time with God, come to church to serve God. If that thing you are running after is physical, it won’t endure the test of time. Whatever it is, Wisdom is speaking: I am the principal thing. Wisdom is speaking : buy of me. And One thing about wisdom is the more you seek God, the more He opens your eyes to see.

Do yourself a favor by being a spiritual eye to your destiny. Do yourself a favor as a mother, be a spiritual eye to your children. Whatever happens in the physical is been concluded in the spiritual. Get whatever you need to get back and get  back on track. Spirituality is not by impactation, it has to be acquired.

  1. We need more people in our world to have wisdom. If that was the case, the world would be a better place. As you taught, wisdom is a gift given by God. I often wonder they God decided to withhold wisdom from so many people. 

    One way to acquire wisdom is to ask God for it. And if asked, I am sure that God will provide it. It is the key to happiness and much of the good things in this world. 

    Lots of food for thought here.


  2. Very True Edwin, Wisdom is the key to happiness and much of the good things in this world. Thanks for your comment.

  4. For me, this was an article sent by God.  Believe it or not, after more than 45 years in ministry, this is my second day of full retirement.  I have been thinking about what to do with my time and how to serve the Lord outside of a formal setting.  your article reminded me that I need to look further than just my experience and, as you put it, my common sense to discern what God is calling me to do now.  I deeply appreciated your paragraph on maintaining zeal.  Zeal must be in my life despite the lack of the formal structure which I left behind.  You have reminded me to seek wisdom from above and be zealous in all I do for the Lord.

    • First, I congratulate you after 45 years in ministry, it’s time to enjoy your retirement.  It’s the beginning of another phase. I’m truly touched my your comment and I trust God to lead you to what’s next. Greater things!
