WHAT IS WISDOM? – Part 4 – Bishop David O. Oyedepo

Tips From God’s Wisdom Manual
When you begin to pray for others, with the same intensity that you pray for yourself, you won't have any prayer points again - that’s God’s wisdom.

'And God turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends, and God gave twice as much as he had before to him'.

God was turning the captivity of Job, whilst Job was praying for his friends - He was praying for those in need and, God was meeting his needs.

What Is Wisdom? - Part 4

This month, God’s going to bring all your needs to an end, because, the wisdom of God, will spark off a new beginning in your life.

Everyone, that concentrates on their needs, they continue to live in need,  but, when you know how to free yourself, it won’t take time, to walk out of it in triumph.

The end has come to every struggle in your life. The Bible makes it clear, it is the practice of scriptures, that makes wise. Wisdom  is all about putting God’s Word to work in your life, and when that is in place, He said,

‘Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock’.

Forget about the future, He is in control of the future, storms and winds notwithstanding, His building will never fall. When you are operating on the truth, your future is secured, can I hear your loudest amen?

You cannot be effective in your prayer life, if all you pray for, is about your life.
You are likely to become a victim of depression, if all you do is pray for your self.

I read in my Bible that, it is more blessing to give than to receive. It's time to become liberal in your spiritual life, become liberal in your spiritual life, so you don’t die a slave.

I know how many people that I am privileged to pray for per day, 
‘O Jesus, heal this woman, O Jesus, set this person free’ 
As I am doing that, I am freeing myself.

The reason your prayer life is dry is, it is selfish, it is self-centered, it's all about you, your wife, your children, everybody can go to hell. That is why life is getting tougher and rougher by the day.
It is more blessing to give than to receive’

Job prayed for himself for years, nothing happened. Then the light came and, he switched over, praying for others who were in need. And in the course of praying for others, God turned his own captivity.

Somebody is coming into colourful liberty by this wisdom!

When the problems of others becomes your true concern spiritually, God has given you the ‘key’, to live in liberty the remaining days of your life.

When the problems of others becomes your genuine concern  spiritually, you are holding the master-key to your own colourful liberty in the journey of life.

‘And the Lord turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends’.

Prayer-life will become most adventurous and fulfilling, when you become liberal in your prayer-life.

‘O God, heal my child, O God, heal my daughter, O God, bless my family, bless my husband, bless me only’ - that’s why it has been so lonely with you.

You can spread out and watch how Heaven do it.
‘Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, who has built his house on the rock’.

How many are going to begin to build on the rock? - That is the guarantee for a colourful future.
Building on the rock, guarantees a colourful tomorrow. If you are building on the truth, your tomorrow is sure. Building on the Word, guarantees tomorrow.

Another wisdom key to your own prosperity, is found in Psalm 102:13-15,
‘ Thou O Lord will arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come. For thy servants take pleasure in her stones, and favour the dust thereof. So the heathen shall fear the name of the Lord, and all the kings of the earth thy glory.’

When you take pleasure in the things concerning the kingdom, you secure God’s favour. Can I hear your Amen?  When you are emotionally committed to whatever has to do with God’s kingdom,  you secure divine favour, without having to pray for it.

‘For the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come.’ – It was favour, that terminated the bondage of Israel’s in Egypt. God’s favour will terminate any bondage in any man’s life.

And how do you secure it? By taking pleasure in kingdom matters, by taking pleasure, it is your delight to be involved … it it is your commitment, it is your joy to be committed. When that becomes your way of life, favour begins to trail you around.

Haven’t you heard?  ‘The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.’

In this year of harvest, every good word that God has spoken in your direction, shall not be lacking in your life.

Before the close of the first half of this year, you are a living testimony of harvest. I said, before half of this year is over, everybody can see you as divine harvest, personified. Nobody will ask where you belong, they will see it on you, visibly written on your life ..
‘They that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.’
