‘The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city’ (ecc 10:15)
from the above scripture we can observe that labor does not automatically bring profit, in fact the most hard working people don not necessarily become the most wealthy.
Many of us were taught by our parents when we were growing up that, if we are studious and work hard we would succeed. However many of us have studied and even finished from Good Higher institutions but still yet we are a far cry from where we want to be. What can really be the matter? Some lucky ones have tried using their parents and family connections but they are still not yet satisfied with their level of success.
Many of us are even envious of the success that some folks who were not privileged to have the kind of education we had have attained. Some good Christians have fasted, prayed, sowed, given first fruits and so on but the success they crave is yet to be a reality. Thank God for Faith and encouragement from our pastors at least we remain hopeful and expectant that one-day we will come out of this tunnel and enter into our wealthy place.
Mehn! This has been the state for so long, and even the present state of the economy is not helping matters, what other option do we have than to wait, hope and trust God that one day things will change.
If this is your case I have good news for you. Your situation is about to change. However it not just going to be by reason of you reading this but by acting on what you get from here.
From the above scripture it is evident that what makes for success in the city is not labor but WISDOM!
In fact the scripture did not say the labor of the unrighteous/sinner wearies him, no, no, no! Success in the city is not necessarily as a result of righteousness or spirituality if this was so then most Christians should be rich and every unbeliever should be poor. It is the labor of the Foolish,
Foolishness is not an abuse but it is simply an absence of wisdom.
For so long many of us Christians were taught about faith and how that is all we need but this is so not so.
Faith is your access to heavenly resources and it in in this realm we live but when it comes to exploits in the natural realm what is required is Wisdom!
Whether you are a Christian or not what brings success is Wisdom.
the advantage of our faith is that eternally we are saved from the lake of fire, but while we are still here on earth we can still experience heaven.
Wisdom is the only road that leads to success in the city.
No wonder the scripture says Wisdom is the principal thing
Hear, ye children, the instruction of a father,
and attend to know understanding.
For I give you good doctrine,
forsake ye not my law.
For I was my father’s son,
tender and only beloved in the sight of my mother.
He taught me also, and said unto me,
Let thine heart retain my words:
keep my commandments, and live.
Get wisdom, get understanding:
forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee:
love her, and she shall keep thee.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom:
and with all thy getting get understanding
The exploit of Jesus in the city was not by reason of faith but by reason of wisdom.
And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue:and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands? Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him
If Jesus did all he did by reason of getting wisdom, we all also must GET IT!
Yes it is through faith we understand that God framed the world through His words (heb 11:3) but it was with wisdom he created all things.
The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth;
by understanding hath he established the heavens
also see Ps 104:24
The bible says: If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith…
If you surely desire a change ,Pray this prayer with me.
Father God, you are full of wisdom and you are the only wise God, I admit that in the past I have been living life according to my own wisdom, I admit that on my one I can not become great, please grant me your wisdom that I may soar higher than my present circumstance, thank you father for I receive this wisdom from you now in Jesus Name.
If you prayed that from your heart I want to specially congratulate you, as you will begin to see drastic changes in your life.
Your are blessed.
