TOPIC: THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN WISDOM AND FAVOUR
Scripture :Proverbs 8: 35. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! It is a good thing to desire wisdom because it has a relationship with favour. Today, we shall be looking at the relationship between wisdom and favour.
From our opening scripture, Wisdom speaking said :
Proverbs 8: 35. For whoso findeth me findeth life, and shall obtain favour of the LORD;
We can see from the scripture above that if you can find wisdom, then you have obtained favour.
That is, favour is a child of Wisdom, if Wisdom is the father, then one of the offsprings is favour.
How does wisdom birth favour?
1. By helping us manage the gifts of men(Prov.8:35);
There are those who chase away their destiny helpers without knowing because of lack of wisdom. When you have wisdom, you know how to manage profitable relationships. The Bible said:
Proverbs 18: 24. A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly: and there is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother.
There are some young ladies who have lost their God ordained husband due to lack of character. Just as established previously, every favour you will ever need in life is in men.
If you can discern and learn to manage the gifts of men in your life you will never lack favour.
2. By helping us to live long life:
Proverbs 3: 2. For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4. So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
If you have wisdom you will not do things that will harm you or destroy your life!
It is lack of wisdom that makes men abuse their life! It is lack of wisdom that makes men eat things that will destroy them. E. g a man takes a packet of cigarettes and there it is written ‘smokers are liable to die young ‘ yet he is still smoking ignoring the warning on the packet.
A young lady was warned don’t get involved in prostitution, she refuse until her womb was removed and she got infected with HIV!
What the Holy Ghost is saying is don’t destroy your life because of lack of wisdom. If you have life then you are bound to have favour in a matter of time because favour goes with life!
Beloved, you must be alive before men can show you favour!
No dead person can receive favour because favour is for the living! Don’t kill yourself before your time! Embrace wisdom and favour will come looking for you.
3. By pulling people and resources towards you:
Genesis 39: 6. And he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand; and he knew not ought he had, save the bread which he did eat. And Joseph was a goodly person, and well favoured.
As soon as Joseph arrived Potiphars’s house, with the wisdom of God upon his life, he was liked by everybody! Hence people, and resources were drawn towards him.
Infact, if God wants to favour you, one of the ways He does it is to bless you with wisdom! Especially the wisdom of speech making and creativity! It will amaze you at the number of person that will suddenly like you and are ready to favour you as soon as you are blessed with wisdom!
Beloved, if you are not being favoured right now, it is possible wisdom is lacking in your life. Rather than throwing tantrums at everybody whom you feel don’t like you, go for wisdom and the story will change. Your wisdom bank determines the level of favour you enjoy.
In conclusion, to live a life without favour is costly, therefore, embrace the secret God has unveiled to us by embracing wisdom!
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real, if you miss heaven you can never miss hell! So make up your mind for Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today,
– Lord, I receive grace to pursue favour by falling in love with wisdom in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy the wisdom that births the favour of God be released upon you from today in the name of Jesus.
– Yoke of disfavour is broken right now in Jesus name.

God bless you.
