Walking in Wisdom ( By Fenny West)

Walking in Wisdom

Walking in Wisdom is My Currency
Because Christ is made wisdom to me. 
I walk in the light of the Word of God
Which is wisdom to me. 
I have the mind of Christ because the word of God says so. And if God said it, that settles it. My mind is renewed. I am renewed in the spirit of my Mind. I have set my mind on God. His word says, “Thou shalt keep in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on you.” Therefore, I am wise not to lean on my own understanding. In all my ways, I acknowledge God and He directs my path. I always hear Him saying to me, “This is the way, walk in it” and that is what I do. He said, “I will instruct you, guide you and teach you in the way you should go. And so long as I am looking to Him I will not go astray. His Spirit is my Counselor, Guide, Standby, Teacher, Revealer who gives me the advantage. He gives me insider information because He knows the end from the beginning. I am therefore in safe hands. He leads me to my green pastures and to my still waters. 
I have the Spirit of wisdom and revelation through my knowledge of Him and through my knowledge of His exceedingly great and precious promises and this enables me to know those things that are freely given to me. All things are mine. And as Continually expose my spirit to His word, I am empowered to walk in faith and increase in faith to take territories and go from glory to glory and from strength to strength. 
In all circumstances, I do what Jesus would have done. I prioritize the Kingdom of God. I set my affection on things above. Because Christ is my life, my wisdom and my strength. He is my light and my salvation. I walk in love at all times because God is love and I am in God and God is in me. I always see through the eyes of God because I am dead to myself and alive unto Him. His mind and wisdom and counsel Prevails in all I do. I do not speak out of turn, but speak the wisdom of God always. I do not act in haste neither do I procrastinate. I keep in step with the Holy Spirit as I pray without Ceasing and pray according to the perfect will of God. I do not miss a bit. Even a turning that seems wrong at the time is used for my good and for my advancement and progress. 
I operate in the wisdom that is heavenly-peaceful, loving, just, true, honest, godly, of good report, admirable, virtuous, and God-glorifying. 
The wisdom I have is laced with understanding, discretion, insight and does not depend on what is seen in the natural. I see with the eyes of Faith. I see unseen realities. Because I see through the eyes of God. 

Ephesians 1:17
“That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:”

Ephesians 1:18
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,”

“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power,”

1 Corinthians 1:30
“But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption

The Holy Spirit is Here

white dove 3 white dove 2 j0236249………..Okay. I’m not religious, but I have questions about the practice of speaking in tongues (Two pastors claimed the ‘ability’ and made quite a show of it during sermons.

What is it exactly? What (if any) purpose does it serve?
When, and where, did this form of speaking originate?
Is there any legitimacy to this practice?

Please, someone–educate me.

 

Speaking in tongues is an evidence of receiving a gift power from Jesus which He promises His followers( disciples) before He ascended after His resurrection. This power comes from the Holy Spirit, Who is the third Person in the God head. (Acts1:8, Acts2:1-4, John16:7-11)

Without the power of the Holy Spirit, believers will be very weak and will be defeated in their Christian living. This is why the Holy Spirit is essential for those who have believed.( Rom8:1-2,11)

There are Christians who are unaware of the power of the Holy Spirit as it was in those days. Such Christian will be weak in their walk with the Lord; their knowledge of the Scriptures will also be shallow because they Holy Spirit is the teacher Who illuminates God’s Word (Acts19:1-6).

On the Day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came upon the Believers for the first time, there were unbelievers who heard the believers speak in tongue after receiving the baptism of the Holy Spirit, as they spoke in languages they had not learnt and they marvelled. Some were however sceptical and thought they were drunk and Peter had to address their scepticism with powerful sermon that led to the salvation of about 3000.

Peter, who was hitherto timid, previously in hiding, and the man who had denied Jesus three times, became fiery, bold and empowered by the Holy Spirit.( Acst2:12-41)

What are the benefits of the Holy Spirit? I will give you just a few:

 

1. He gives you power over sin ( Romans8:1-2)

2. He speaks to the believer and addresses their circumstances, giving them divine direction(Acts16:6-7)

3. He brings about healing, revival ( Romans8:11)

4. He is the Comforter and will comfort you in your distress if He lives inside of you(2Cor1:3-4,Ac 28:10,23,24)

5. He will show you things to come- revelation ( John16:13,Ac9:10-17)

6. He prays for you according to the perfect will of God ( Rom8:26)

7. He gives us assurance that we are children of God and that heaven is our home when we die.(Ro8:16)

8. He our Standby and Helper when we need help or when we need the power of God to kick in in our difficulties ( John16:7)

9. He will convict us of sin and bring us to the place of repentance( John16:7-11)

10. He brings about the miraculous (Acts8:1-6,Ac5:15-16)

11. He brings about order in our life where there is chaos (Gen1:1-2)

12. He makes the word of God come alive and relevant to us in the present day.( John16:14)

13. When you speak in tongues you are speaking mysteries- praising God, which can trigger breakthroughs in your life, like Paul and Silas( 1Co14:1-2, Acts16)

14.When you speak in tongues you are building up yourself; pepping up your spiritual immune system, like topping up your  credit on your mobile phone or electricity if you use a meter.( 1Cor14:3,Jude20)

I hope this has been helpful
