We need Supernatural Wisdom

Since last four weeks I have been impressed in my Spirit by His Holy Spirit about Supernatual Wisdom. I was reading in Job 28 where Father God before creating the worlds into being forms wisdom (a framework of His love and His principles) and then He hides it and with it starts creating the worlds and everthing in it with the Son.

You wonder why He has to hide it?

Wisdom is personified as a woman who helps Him in the first creation acts and a thing that His children need to pursue. It is interesting that there is earthly wisdom, earthly knowledge and skills that we pursue and is profitable but at the same time there is this supernatural wisdom that is hidden by Him and is only found by searching the deep things of God. Proverbs 25:2 says

                   "It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings"

When we read the book of Proverbs the writer Solomon had access to this supernatual wisdom, he was gifted with it and found the hidden thinsg but didn't necessarily heed its warnings or walk completely in the path. So graudally over his lifetime he got seeking merely earthly wisdom and so in despair Ecclesiastes 12:8  quotes:

                      "Meaningless! Meaningless!" says the Teacher. "Everything is meaningless!"

Solomon in his pursuit has realized earthly wisdom, earthly pleasures has gotten his eyes off from the supernatural wisdom he talks about in proverbs. In short the fear of the Lord ceased and all his pursuits of supernatural wisdom (though he had access stopped) but his earthly pursuits for knowledge, pleasures and works left him remarking "Meaningless!"

This is a good lesson for all of us who has the helper His Holy Spirit to continue asking Him for discernment between earthly wisdom and knowledge to that of supernatural wisdom and knowledge. The latter has greater benefits as it taps into the heart, mind and resources of God; and leads to fulfillment in the present and builds the Spirit man.

When the apostles needed the help of some good men to shepherd the exploding new church, they chose men "full of the Spirit and wisdom" (Acts 6:3). The two go together; we need them both. We need to walk by the inspiration of the Spirit, and we need wisdom in to - to do that walk.. Wisdom and Revelation, thus become a norm in living supernaturally. As I thought about this I began asking the Lord what does this look like and He showed me the verse "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom" and I retorted, "Lord I do fear you and live in the Holy Fear of your awesome name and awesome ways". The Lord said "Yes but it is much more, it is wrapped in the intimacy of love".  I knew then revelation happened in the Spirit, what was hidden in the Spirit was revealed in some form of deep understanding that I can't put in words here.

The only way I can explain here is "Seek Him, Seek His Intimate Love" and its the way to be in position, and alignment to access the Supernatural wisdom that He hides but gives freely to the one who He deeply loves.

2012 and 22 days late

Wow its 2012 and I am 22 days late in posting something here. By the way "Happy New Year" and I am so glad to start the beginning of a new year with keeping foremost in my mind the overwhelming goodness and grace of God the Father, Yeshua and His Holy Spirit. May this reality be increasing and mulitplying every day of my life and yours as we grow wrapped in His love.
I have taken on a new leadership role and its time to string the bow, tune the fork and be reminded that apart from the supernatual wisdom of God there is no way to manage, lead or do anything. The time of "being" last year has embedded in me deeply the ideas of being rooted in the vine that Jesus talks about in John chapter 15. He is the vine apart from Him we can't produce fruit, or be fruitful that has substance for eternity.

I am learning and enjoying, tasting and renewing because of Jesus, because of His Life and because of His Blood.

Blessings & Shalom,
