Revelation of Wisdom


I entered prayer that morning to ask God for

Wisdom * Discernment * Revelation


***

I laid sprawled face down on a golden ocean floor. Understanding there was something to see under me, I pushed aside the sand, revealing a door with no handle or keyhole. Amazed, I saw the golden floor expand, and it covered the whole earth. I wondered what I should do. I had no way of opening the door.

“What is this and what is behind the door?” I asked.

“The golden covering is My wisdom. No, it’s not a door that you open — a location that you go into. Wisdom goes into you, and you consume it. It is not a destination; it is an indwelling gift.”

I understood this was another invitation to die to self. I wish I could say I readily went for it, but I recognized there would be a cost. If I consumed His wisdom, there would be a loss of my own. How silly to hesitate considering the glorious reward and at such little cost.

I said "yes" as I rolled over and laid face up on the sand and then the golden floor became like a giant sheet that wrapped itself around me. It poured into my mouth, eyes, and ears. I felt a moment of panic and then peace.

***

I wish I could say that whenever God takes me to these crossroads where I need to decide to submit and die to self I did it quickly and easily. There have been times this was true, but most times there is an inner struggle.


Considering the following beautiful scripture, how could I be fearful? Yet I was.


“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” (James 3:17, ESV)

Of course, when we come to the other side of our yes, we reap the benefits of obedience. Which are always greater than what we anticipate.

Yet being human, it’s hard to let go of control.

If you are struggling with letting go and saying yes to God, know you aren’t alone. Often to say yes we need to let go of the lies that have attached to us along the journey of our lives.

We can't be filled with our wisdom and His wisdom. One must prevail. Let there be a revelation of His wisdom in your life.

How good are you at releasing the human wisdom that has been forcefully taught to you through both schooling and life experiences? Do you find it hard to even determine if you have a mind-set that is out of alignment with God’s word? I know I do. It takes time and reflection, but most of all, a humble heart willing to let go of control and embrace His truth.


“Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and decisions and how unfathomable and untraceable are His ways!” (Rom. 11:33, AMP)


The truth of Romans 11:33 leaves me in awe and is such a stark contrast against our own human knowledge.

I’m glad I said yes to consuming His wisdom and letting go of my own. I know this will take time, humility and may be painful, yet I also know it’s worth it.


Prayer for you and me: Thank You, God, that You are so patient and faithful to us. Even as we fight the very thing we asked for. Help us say yes to Your amazing grace, even when we are uncertain and fearful. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
