ESTABLISHMENT

For several weeks, I have shared with you on the importance of recognizing the various voices in your life. Today, I would like to speak to you on a different subject. This is establishment. “But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you” (1 Peter 5:10). To be established means to make someone stable. You must understand that from this verse, suffering is not forever, it is just for a while. You must become stable and established in God financially, spiritually, and in your relationships. “And Samuel grew, and the Lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground. And all Israel from Dan even to Beersheba knew that Samuel was established to be a prophet of the Lord. And the Lord appeared again in Shiloh: for the Lord revealed himself to Samuel in Shiloh by the word of the Lord.” (1 Samuel 3:19-21). Samuel was established to be a prophet. You can also become established in whatever you are doing. God is going to establish you. If you look at the life of David, “And Hiram king of Tyre sent messengers to David, and cedar trees, and carpenters, and masons: and they built David an house. And David perceived that the Lord had established him king over Israel, and that he had exalted his kingdom for his people Israel’s sake” (2 Samuel 5:11-12). God established David as a king. God wants to make you established in whatever you are doing. Whether it is to be a prophet, king, or a Christian, you must be stable and established. To be established is the will of God but it will come after you have suffered a while.

And when thy days be fulfilled, and thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will set up thy seed after thee, which shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish his kingdom.” (2 Samuel 7:12). In the Bible, we see that God established the seed of David now how much more you? There is nothing more stable than the universe and we can see it in the Bible. “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods. (Psalms 24:1-2). God has created a stable universe and He is looking to also make you and I stable. We need stability in our lives. You cannot be a strong Christian, a member of a church, or in a relationship if you are not stable and established. God wants to bless you and stabilize you. In order for God to do this for you, He has to give you understanding. Understanding stabilizes a person “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not”. (Jeremiah 5:21). God does not want his people to lack understanding because understanding stabilizes you greatly. Understanding is the master key to becoming stable in something. It is only those who lack a deep understanding that become unstable. Receive the grace for understanding! Receive the grace for establishment from today!

HEARING THE VOICE OF GOD

I am sharing with you in this season about hearing the voice of God. One of the main things that helps us hear the voice of God is to eliminate other voices. Eliminating other voices is a master key to hearing the voice of God. That is why 1 Corinthians 14:10 says, there are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Sometimes to hear the voice of God, you have to tune down or take away some other voices. That is true of every voice. If we are in a room together and everyone starts talking, you may not hear me. One of the keys is to know and recognize the voices that exist and silence them. You will realize that as you quieten them down, you will start to hear the voice you need to hear.

Many kinds of voices confront us daily. Some of these voices include the voice of God, the voice of the mind, which is constantly influencing you, and the voice of the flesh which is also constantly speaking. To do well, you need to quieten certain dangerous voices. “Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea. And they thirsted not when he led them through the deserts: he caused the waters to flow out of the rock for them: he clave the rock also, and the waters gushed out” (Isaiah 48:17-18). God is the one who actually teaches you to do well. It is not the devil, circumstances, the billionaires or philosophers of this world that teach you this. God is the one who leads you where you should go in this life. How will you be led and how will you prosper if you cannot hear the voice of God? Every other voice will lead you astray. That is why you must trust Him to lead you. When you follow the voice of God, He will cause miracles to happen in your life and make the impossible possible in your life. These are the great advantages of drowning out other voices. From today, choose to listen to God’s voice. Allow him to lead you and you will receive unending peace and righteousness. God is working wonders in your life today because you have yielded to His voice and not any other.

THE VOICE OF GOD

Today, I want to share with you about something higher that is going to change your life. That is the voice of God.

Now 1 Corinthians 14:10 tells us that, There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Now this means that all the voices are significant. When something is significant, it means, it is important to you and that is why it is being mentioned. That is why elections ae even talked about so that the average person in town takes them seriously because who you vote for can and does always personally affect you. When 1 Corinthians 14:10 tells us that none of these voices are without significance, it means that all voices will and do have an effect on you whether you think so or not.

The greatest voice is the voice of God which you must believe and listen to. I am the Lord thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it. But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me. So I gave them up unto their own hearts’ lust: and they walked in their own counsels. Oh that my people had hearkened unto me, and Israel had walked in my ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the Lord should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured forever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee” (Psalms 81:10-16). Now why did God not do all these things that He spoke about for the Israelites? Verse 11 holds the answer to this question, “But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me”. Listening and obeying the voice of God is key to your advancement in life. When you listen to God, He will give you the finest of wheat with honey! If you are saying you do not know how or where to hear the voice of God, which will lead you to the greatest prosperity and success of your life, you need to look at Luke 10:16. It says, “He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me (Luke 10:16)”. When you listen to a disciple of Jesus speaking, you are hearing God himself speak. The other thing you can see when it comes to a minister who is speaking the word of God is despisement. The two main responses we have to God’s word is to listen or to set it aside. I have been despised many times. When you preach and somebody sets it aside, you realize they do not value it. To despise is to cast off, set aside and disesteem. In other words, to lower and neutralize. What people do not realize is that when you set aside God’s word, you have belittled it to the words of a man. All you have to do is despise the servant of God and you have despised Jesus and God. It is a chain reaction. There is no station or network that is directly tuned to God’s voice from heave. You will have to deal with people to hear the voice of God. Receive the grace to recognize and know the voice of God in this year of good things.

VOICES

Today, I want to share with you about voices, especially the most important voice of all which is the voice of God. This teaching can also be found in my book “The Art of Hearing”.

“For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty. For he received from God the Father honour and glory, when there came such a voice to him from the excellent glory, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And this voice which came from heaven we heard, when we were with him in the holy mount. We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: (1 Peter 1:16-19).”

The voice of God is a very important subject because that is where all blessings begin. No matter who speaks, there is a prophesy that is surer which is the word of God. The word of God is not respected by Christians. Unless you use special clichés or phrases, people do not think that you are wise when you speak in accordance with the word of God. However, all these wise sayings are in the Bible but phrased in a different way. The Bible is advertising itself saying that we have a more sure word of prophecy. So, whatever you think will happen, the Bible is clearly predicting that it will come to pass. It says, “whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place” (1 Peter 1:19). When you take heed, it is like a man in a dark place who sees a light shining to show him how to maneuver. If you have ever been in a dark place where you can hurt yourself, you will be grateful for light. That is what the word of God is. The word of God is greater than anything I can ever say or any prophecy I can ever give. You need to be careful of being impressed with the prophecies you receive more than the word of God. The word of God will happen so correctly and exact that it is almost unbelievable. I want to encourage you to stay with the Bible. Believe and be impressed by God’s wisdom. Nobody is wiser above God himself.

All we need is the voice of God to guide us but there are many kinds of voices in this world. “There are, it may be, so many kinds of voices in the world, and none of them is without signification” (1 Corinthians 14:10). Every voice has an effect. If you joke with it, you will find yourself in grave danger. What are these voices?

  1. The voice of God
  2. The voice of your flesh. This is your emotions. Your flesh will resist any form of hardship you attempt to put it through.
  3. The voice of your mind. This is logic and reasoning. You cannot just follow reasoning
  4. The voice of the devil. You must know when the devil is speaking no matter who he is speaking through. Jesus was so in tune with the many types of voices that when Satan spoke through His main disciple Peter, He was able to recognize it. No matter how close people are to you, when you hear certain phrases, you must recognize and rebuke it.
  5. The voice of a prophet. “And by a prophet the Lord brought Israel out of Egypt, and by a prophet was he preserved” (Hosea 12:13).
  6. The voice of the Bible. The Bible has the voice of God’s words
  7. The voice of your friends. Friends are with you more than your pastor, parents or anybody else. So, they have greater influence on you. If you have the wrong kind of friend, you are doomed
  8. The voice of your parents. Those who fail to listen to the voice of their parents start to descend like an elevator in free fall. Your parents may not be the best according to your standards but I would advice you to listen to them.
  9. The voice of your spirit which is the inner man.
  10. The voice of your spouse. This is another strong voice that can influence you. You can sometimes find yourself in a bad situation because you listened to this voice.
  11. The voice of circumstances.
  12. The voice of your own will.

From today, receive grace to recognize the voice of God in your life!

THE KNOWLEDGE OF HIS WILL

I want to share with you on the very important topic of the knowledge of the will of God. For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the [k]knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding (Colossians 1:9 NASB).

Colossians 1:9 tells us that we need to be filled with the knowledge of His will. Many people come into this world and are advised by their parents to study hard in in school. We are encouraged to know many things but very few people teach and emphasize the importance of knowing the will of God. Knowing the will of God is more important than what you learn in school. It must be, because God is greater than anything in this world. If you carefully analyze, you notice that going to school does not change who you are. That is why you will see a doctor, educated in some countries, eating and surrounded by flies. Knowing what God has made is greater than what man has made. When man has made you a pharmacist, it is far less than God making you a sanguineous person. You cannot change that by going to school. It is important for us to discover the reason why God has allowed us to be alive. When I became 50 years old, I was particularly grateful to God because I felt He had allowed me to see 50 years, had preserved me and still had a reason for me to be alive. There must be something more to my life than eating meat. Whether you do one thing or another, everyone eats meat. It cannot be that the reason for you to be alive is just to exist and be like an animal. There must be a purpose! That is why Paul says that “since the day we heard of it [that you have been saved], we have not ceased to pray for you and ask that you be filled with the knowledge of His will.”

If you do not know the purpose of His will, you become useless. There once was a man who worked for a billionaire. This man went to the billionaire’s yatch and saw another man sitting down on his own personal yatch. In his many inquiries, he found out that the man had been diagnosed with cancer and did not know what to do. He was just waiting to die. When you are told you are going to die, what do you do? When you are not conscious of death, you have little things in front of you that keep you moving. When we come to the world, we are given little “rabbits” to chase. We are given the education rabbit, beloved rabbit, marriage rabbit and many things to occupy our times. However, when you analyze it, you realize that you are really going nowhere.

You are a failure when you are not in the will of God. Why is this? Know ye that the Lord he is God: it is he that hath made us, and not we ourselves; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture” (Psalm 100:3). The one who has created an invention knows what it is purposed for. God has made each of us for something and we can never say we know better. One day in Mozambique, somebody had a fish farm. In that farm were many fish that came to the top of the water. I asked the people that were with me if they could catch one of the fish. Somebody caught one and put the fish where we were. The fish was struggling as though it was in an intensive care unit because it had been taken out of the place it was destined to be. When the fish was put back in its rightful place, it surged and swam with such ease. That is how you are when you are in the will of God. You are like a magician swimming with ease in the waters. When you are taken out of His will and made to do something you were not created to do, that is when confusion arises. It is so important to know the will of God because it is not so obvious to know what to do. Thank God for the knowledge of school, cooking and much more but desire to know above all those things the will of God for your life. 2018 is your year of knowing the will of God that will lead you into good things!

SPIRITUAL POWER THAT RELEASES FINANCIAL WEALTH – TITHING

Today, I would like to continue sharing with you on the spiritual powers that release financial prosperity. I want you to try hard to listen and believe what I am saying to you. It is easy to hear a pastor speak and think that what he or she is saying cannot happen. I want you to know that what your pastor says can happen in your life. Believe in God’s supernatural help in your life.

“My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer. Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee for ever (Psalms 45:1-2).

One of the keys to prosperity is right here in this verse which says that grace is poured into thy lips; it is not only about being beautiful but also how you speak. That is why a lot of beautiful girls do not have beloveds because grace must be poured out into their lips. Relating with someone is not about being beautiful but also how you speak. Your lips must be filled with grace. You must know how to speak.

And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things” (Psalms 45:4). There are three reasons why you are going to ride prosperously, because of truth. Truth is very important. You must love truth. You will ride prosperously because of meekness and righteousness as well. All organizations fail to ride prosperously when they begin to lose meekness. Try to always do what is right with all your heart.

One of the important spiritual powers that brings about prosperity is tithing. And it shall be, when thou art come in unto the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee for an inheritance, and possessest it, and dwellest therein; That thou shalt take of the first of all the fruit of the earth, which thou shalt bring of thy land that the Lord thy God giveth thee, and shalt put it in a basket, and shalt go unto the place which the Lord thy God shall choose to place his name there. And thou shalt go unto the priest that shall be in those days, and say unto him, I profess this day unto the Lord thy God, that I am come unto the country which the Lord sware unto our fathers for to give us. And the priest shall take the basket out of thine hand, and set it down before the altar of the Lord thy God (Deuteronomy 26:1-4). Tithing becomes more important when you go higher. It is easy to remember God when you are down. It is when He increases you that you should remember, that is when your remembrance of Him affects anything. God should always be the first. Many people do not remember God when they have a steady income. If you do not pay tithe as a poor man, you will never pay your tithes as a rich man. Your tithe is part of your worship to God. Begin to pay your tithe, if you do not, and you will begin to see your life prospering beyond your wildest imagination.

SPIRITUAL POWERS THAT RELEASES FINANCIAL WEALTH

Finances are spiritual and spiritually obtained. There is a lot of spirituality between finances and the spiritual world.

But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day (Deuteronomy 8:18). It is clear that God is the giver of wealth. He gives power to get wealth. Everything that God does, the devils tries to do as well. He wants to be God but He will never be God. There are seven master keys to financial wealth that we receive in Deuteronomy 8. Before we get into these master keys, I want you to understand the type of wealth that you are about to receive.

Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years” (Deuteronomy 8:4). What you thought would be old will not get old. A lot of diseases come with the swelling of the foot: liver disease, kidney disease and more. Sometimes, by the time you get to a certain level of prosperity, you are weak and cannot enjoy it. Receive prosperity that you can enjoy even in your old age.

“For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills” (Deuteronomy 8:7). Not every land is good. Receive a good land. When God wanted to bless the Israelites financially, the first thing He promised to them was a good land. Real wealth is not about investments in bonds, stocks and man-made arrangements often based on deceptions you are not privy to. The first sign of wealth is a good land. All my children are landowners! There are places when you build you house, they come with an abundance of problems. You will not have that problem!! Receive a good land.

“Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein” (Deuteronomy 8:12). Receive a goodly house! Your house is not just going to be a house but a goodly house. What is a goodly house? A goodly house has at least two garages!  A goodly house has a nice living room. In a goodly house, your bedroom is nicer than the living room. Your house will neither be too hot or too cold. Your house will have good chairs. Chairs that do not give you backaches. Receive a goodly house! A goodly house is spacious. Not that when others are speaking in one room, another will hear it. A goodly house is a place where you will bring your parents and they will be happy and say “my son or daughter has prospered.” Receive a goodly house! A goodly house is better designed that your parents’ home. It is not a house that is causing you financial stress and brings with it final warnings from the bank. You are going to have a goodly house in Jesus name! Receive the spiritual powers that bring about financial wealth.

MY LONG-AWAITED PROMOTION HAS COME IV

Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end (Deuteronomy 8:16).

God is testing you so that he can promote you. Sometimes you remain in a place longer than expected because you did not pass the tests that came before the promotion. It is important that you take note of the tests and see things as God wants you to see them.

And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no (Deuteronomy 8:2).

One of the things that tests do is that they humble you. You know within yourself that you cannot easily pass that same test if given to you within a short span. There is nobody reading this who is not going to pass the tests given to them and is not going to be greatly promoted. When God blesses and promotes you, you start to follow what is written in Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” As time goes by, you will realize that God has blessed you and given you the power to get wealth. Now wealth is relative. It is sometimes based on what you need. People can earn ten to twenty times more than you do but you with your smaller amount of money can do more than they can. Gradually, you will notice a change in your finances. God expects you to notice these changes financially and give Him thanks. When you do that, you will start to notice that you are climbing higher and higher. When you do not notice such things, you are not thankful. Thankfulness is different from saying thank you. You can say thank you but you are not thankful. Being thankful is always being grateful and appreciative. Today, I want you to make a conscious effort to become a thankful person. Recognize the tests that will come your way on the path to your long-awaited promotion.

“To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding;To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion” (Proverbs 1:2-4).

Discretion is one of the tests you will go through on the path to your long-awaited promotion. Discretion is the ability to take decisions on your own. Sometimes, you are blessed to have good advice but many times, there is nobody to tell you what to do. That is when you are told to use your own discretion. Your discretion is going to come into play all the time in your life and each time you make a decision, it will either cause you rise up or fall down. Receive discretion to pass your tests on the path to your long-awaited promotion.

Blessings!

MY LONG-AWAITED PROMOTION HAS COME III

“To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity; To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge and discretion” (Proverbs 1:2-4).

When it comes to your long-awaited promotion, there are seven things you will be tested on; your wisdom, knowledge, understanding, equity, judgement, your justice and discretion. Discretion speaks of the decisions you take on your own when  no one is around. This one thing is perhaps the most important ability you need to have. Many times, missionaries do not do well because on their own, they cannot take good decisions. However, when they are around, they are given directions and instructions on what to do next.

Joseph is a good example of a person who was faced with many of the issues of life that we all face (Genesis 37). The first test Joseph faced was on how to handle the vision.

“And he said unto them, Hear, I pray you, this dream which I have dreamed: For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf. And his brethren said to him, Shalt thou indeed reign over us? or shalt thou indeed have dominion over us? And they hated him yet the more for his dreams, and for his words. And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth” (Genesis 37:6-10)?

You can see that Joseph had respect for his dreams. He must have had a sense of respect for his dreams and deemed them important enough to tell his brethren and father. We all tend to feel like if God appeared to us the way he appeared to the other person, then we will truly serve the Lord properly. Despite the questions he faced when he shared it with his brothers and father. He took his dream seriously!

“And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said, The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son, And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come. Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage. But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:” (Matthew 22:1-5).

When you make light of a dream, a vision or a call, do not expect to become anything. However, when you pass the test of taking the smallest conviction and vision from God in your heart, then you can expect to go to the next level. At the beginning of life, this is where many people part company, one makes light of the vision they receive and another takes it seriously. Nobody can be serious about your calling. You must be serious about your own calling. Nobody can superimpose their seriousness on your attitude of lightness. Do not think that it is people who not have anything to do who take their calling seriously! Do not also think that things are clearer and easier for somebody but not for you. Things are not any easier or clearer for the next person. The difference between you and the next person will be how you handle the vision. Receive grace to take your vision seriously! From today, a door is opening for you taking you higher and higher.

MY LONG-AWAITED PROMOTION HAS COME II

“All the commandments which I command thee this day shall ye observe to do, that ye may live, and multiply, and go in and possess the land which the Lord sware unto your fathers. And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live. Thy raiment waxed not old upon thee, neither did thy foot swell, these forty years. Thou shalt also consider in thine heart, that, as a man chasteneth his son, so the Lord thy God chasteneth thee. Therefore thou shalt keep the commandments of the Lord thy God, to walk in his ways, and to fear him. For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills; A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of oil olive, and honey; A land wherein thou shalt eat bread without scarceness, thou shalt not lack any thing in it; a land whose stones are iron, and out of whose hills thou mayest dig brass. When thou hast eaten and art full, then thou shalt bless the Lord thy God for the good land which he hath given thee. Beware that thou forget not the Lord thy God, in not keeping his commandments, and his judgments, and his statutes, which I command thee this day: Lest when thou hast eaten and art full, and hast built goodly houses, and dwelt therein; And when thy herds and thy flocks multiply, and thy silver and thy gold is multiplied, and all that thou hast is multiplied;Then thine heart be lifted up, and thou forget the Lord thy God, which brought thee forth out of the land of Egypt, from the house of bondage; Who led thee through that great and terrible wilderness, wherein were fiery serpents, and scorpions, and drought, where there was no water; who brought thee forth water out of the rock of flint; Who fed thee in the wilderness with manna, which thy fathers knew not, that he might humble thee, and that he might prove thee, to do thee good at thy latter end;” (Deuteronomy 8:1-16).

You are living! You are possessing the land! You are entering the land God has prepared for you in Jesus name. If you are honest with yourself, you will realize that troubles have a way of humbling you. It makes you cooler and calmer. That is why older people at times appear not to shout as much or be as excited. It is not that they are angry but because they have experienced trials. Now when you get married, you sign up for this journey of humility full of trials. “And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no” (Deuteronomy 8:2). That is why even certain jobs ask for your marital status because it is a sign that you have gone through trials that will bring about humility. At times, people that are not married are prouder than those who are. Even God who searches the heart allows you to go through things to prove you and find out what is in your heart. Everyone says nice things but when you are put through trials, with time, what is in your heart will come out.

One of the tests you will go through will be the test of your wisdom and discretion. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom” (James 3:13). Your wisdom is shown by your good behavior and works, with meekness. When you are wise, you become humble. It is wise to be humble! Wise husbands and wives are humble. Wisdom is your ability to apply knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. In the tests of your wisdom, the type of wisdom you have will be revealed (James 3:15). Your long-awaited promotion will come to pass when you are able to successfully respond to the tests that come your way. Receive wisdom to pass the tests of time. Receive the ability to apply the knowledge you have gained in your tests and you will experience glimpses of your long-awaited promotion.

Blessings!
