Yesterday, I explained briefly to you the concept of wisdom. Today, I want to proceed as I show you different types of wisdom.
1. The wisdom of God. (1Cor. 1:18-31; 2:1-8)
This is the wisdom of the Ancient of days. The wisdom with which He creates and administers all things both in heaven, on earth and under the earth. All things are under Him. Jesus Christ is the personification of this wisdom. Every genuine wisdom that you see men display today is a product of that wisdom. The wisdom of God is unsearchable and the enemy does not understand it.
It is foolishness before men and the devil and that is why the enemy and man do not understand it often times. Every instruction that God gives issues out from this wisdom. God has ordained this wisdom to bring glory into our lives only that we must accept it, admire it and live by it.
2. The wisdom of the devil (Gen. 3:1-5).
The devil is wise but his wisdom is a corrupted wisdom. Anyone who follows it will end up in destruction. This wisdom from the devil is evil and it’s always against God’s purpose and plan. It usually looks attractive to men but ultimately it will lead them to destruction. By it men devise and work out evil things. Every wisdom sought and obtained outside of Jesus Christ and the Bible is of the devil.
3. The wisdom of man.
You have the natural wisdom of man that is taught and acquired in schools and other learning processes. After the fall of man, there is still a residual effect of God’s wisdom on man. By it men make and invent things. However, you have another side of man’s wisdom and that is cunning craftiness. It is the wisdom of man consequent upon his fall. Craftiness is a satanic wisdom and a product of man’s fall. It has its root in deception and it is of the devil. This wisdom is also called the wisdom of this world. Don’t forget however that this world will perish and everything in it.
PRAYER: Lord, as a child of God, I open up myself to a flow of your wisdom from today in Jesus’ name. Amen.
