WISDOM STANDS YOU OUT


WISDOM STANDS YOU OUT
s a t u r d a y 9
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore 
get wisdom: and with all thy getting get 
understanding. Exalt her, and she shall 
promote thee: she shall bring thee to 
honour, when thou dost embrace her 
(Proverbs 4:7-8).
There’s a wisdom from God that’s revealed to 
us to live by. Jesus functioned in it, and as a 
result,  He  completely  baffled  and  dazzled  those  in 
His day. He had a different mindset. His words and 
teachings were different; in most cases, they were in 
complete antithesis to the Law, and to natural human 
thinking. 
According to the Law, for example, the soul that 
sins shall die (Ezekiel 18:20), but Jesus manifested the 
love,  mercies  and  grace  of  God:   “For  the  law  was 
given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus 
Christ” (John 1:17). Moses taught “An eye for an eye; 
life  for  life”;  but  Jesus  came  to  reveal  to  us  the  life 
and nature of God; the way God thinks—the way that 
wins—the love-way. 
Man had been raised in the natural world to be 
vengeful, to be insulting and injurious. But Jesus taught 
that we should love our enemies, pray for, and bless 
our detractors and persecutors: “…Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate 
you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, 
and persecute you”  (Matthew 5:44). 
That’s  strange  to  the  natural  man.  Loving  your 
enemies isn’t what you’d naturally like to do. But Jesus 
came with Kingdom principles: a new way to live. He 
spoke love, and demonstrated love. Those that heard 
Him heard Love’s voice. Those He encountered felt 
Love’s  embrace.  Even  the  officers  that  were  sent  to 
arrest Him on a certain occasion, after listening to His 
teachings, submitted, “…No man ever spoke like this 
man!” (John 7:46 NKJV). 
Jesus functioned with the wisdom of the just; that’s 
what you need in your life; that’s what stands you out 
and makes you a wonder to your world. 
PRAYER
Dear  Father,  you’ve  granted  me  wisdom  and 
understanding, to know and walk in your perfect will. 
My life is the expression of divine wisdom. Wisdom 
is heard in my words and seen in my actions today, 
in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
