Rule and Reign with Wisdom January 8
Food for Thought (meditate on this): Eph. 1:8
I’m one of those strange people that doesn’t mind being called for jury duty. (Although it’s not very convenient with my busy schedule!) I figure we Spirit-filled Christians ought to be applying the wisdom He gave us in the legal system and in every aspect of our lives. We have the advantage of His Spirit guiding us and helping us discern in every situation, but sometimes we shirk our duty. Consequently, we hand over the decision to those who can only go by their natural thought process and may be subject to the whims of the enemy or of their flesh, and contrary to God’s will.
Godly wisdom is the tool that He gave for us to rule and reign in our lives to fulfill the will of God according to His Word. Along with wisdom, God gave us authority as part of His original plan to put us in charge of His creation. It’s wonderful to know that He put all things under our feet. You name it, and we have authority over it; our finances, our health, our thoughts, etc.
What an awesome responsibility we have as believers to rule and reign in this life. Today, let’s take charge of the realms of our authority and seek God’s wisdom so that we reign with Him and His will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
