Ye Are the Lights
God’s wisdom should be applied to everything we do. Without the wisdom of God, you cannot see all aspects of a problem. You operate in gaps when you don’t operate in wisdom.
Wisdom will not only tell you what to say, but tell you how to say it. You could forfeit better solutions and answers if you are only using natural wisdom to solve problems and make decisions. This could result in the enemy keeping back part of your inheritance.
Today, we need the wisdom of God on how to raise our children. How many parents are at their wits end as to what to do in raising their teenager, or younger kids for that matter? We are living in a time when the world is drifting further away from the wisdom of God, and we are seeing the results of unwise living with increased poverty, diseases, divorces, broken families, and the creation of ungodly laws.
Jesus said, “As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:5). He took personal responsibility for the darkness in the earth. He went on to say in another Gospel “Ye are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:14), speaking to his disciples and us. Christianity was never meant to be dictated but to be demonstrated.
