DAY 12: SPIRITUAL GIFTS: WISDOM
Jeff Roper – FMI area missionary to Europe
I gather with my Foursquare family to seek God’s will. Yet, knowing His will is not enough, I must linger in His presence to gain a heart of wisdom to do His will. I know God wants to transform me and the world around me. But I do not know how. I need wisdom. God has made me dependent upon the body of Christ. I need someone to speak words of wisdom to me.
My mind is often agitated with thoughts, imaginations, arguments and fears. I need a word of wisdom spoken into the chaos and confusion of my soul. This utterance reveals a flash of insight from the Holy Spirit, the grace and presence of Jesus Christ. It is a sure word, an authentic utterance from the throne of grace, to ready my mind, strengthen my hands, steady my knees and direct my feet.
Speak, Holy Spirit, through your people.
• As a family, let us contend in prayer to be people who operate in the word of wisdom that liberates and empowers the soul.
• Pray that we humble ourselves to hear the words of wisdom spoken into our lives.
• Pray we speak up when it is the right time.
• Pray we, The Foursquare Church, are marked by the wisdom of God.
