Greetings to you in Jesus Name and welcome to this brand new month. Being the 3rd month of the year, we expect (amongst other things), to experience the Power of Resurrection like never before this month. .
Our series this month is on Divine Wisdom, with emphasis on what it takes to access the wisdom of God. This first week, I will like us to begin with the foundation of all wisdom: The Fear of God.
Psalm 111:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom:…” KJV
Joseph was a man that operated in Divine wisdom in Egypt. He was placed in Authority because the wisdom found in him was unique and greater than all the kind found in all the wise men in Egypt but the foundation of the kind of wisdom he manifested is the Fear of God. .
Genesis 39:9 and Genesis 42:18 showcases Joseph was as a man who feared God. He refused to commit sin, even in the secret – without minding the consequences of his choice. His standard for not doing wrong was not based on the presence or absence of people, neither was it on the knowledge or ignorance of people concerning the event; It was based on reverential and godly fear.
God in turn, endowed him with Divine wisdom, using him as an example to us all on how the fear of the Lord is the basic qualifier for the wisdom of God.
It is my prayer that the wisdom of God will distinguish you and place you at the top. Once again, welcome to the month of March 2017.
God BLESS you.
