Some decisions require wisdom and don’t really need a prophetic word. When we think about decisions and how we make decisions, some of what we call disasters could have been avoided with some good old fashion wisdom.
Wisdom is the combination of knowledge, understanding and application/action.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6
Too often I have found (and maybe you can relate) that people (including me) don’t think things through thoroughly. And, had we thought things through, we would have made better decisions. Unfortunately, in many of our charismatic circles, people are running with prophetic words and not applying wisdom.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Proverbs.4:7
Sometimes we don’t need to look for a prophetic word but what we need is to seek out wisdom.
Have you ever seen a dog chase its own tail? That is sort of what it looks like when we go chasing after a prophetic word.
If I give someone advice and godly counsel-wisdom that is not a prophetic word, yet that doesn’t make the counsel or wisdom less valuable than prophecy. If you were going to be hit by a car and I yell “Move”. This is a word of direction based on wisdom. If you stay where you are; you are going to be hit and probably die.
Wisdom is not afraid to ask hard questions. Hard questions need real answers in change is what you are looking for.
What are you doing that is sabotaging your success?
Which spiritual doors are allowing demonic activity in your life?
What should you do to expose and remove the stumbling blocks in your way?
“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. Matthew 7:6-8
I can tell you honestly that there have been times that I have made a shipwreck of my life because I didn’t apply wisdom to the prophetic words I received. If you’ll be honest, I’m sure you can testify to that as well.
It’s my heart’s desire as I believe that it is also the Lord’s desire that the words and wisdom that I share propel you and lead you closer to prophetic destiny. For this reason, The Prophetic Center exists. I encourage you to take full advantage of our services and trainings. Your future deserves the very best that wisdom, good counsel and prophecy has to offer.
