THE SPIRIT OF WISDOM
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him… (Ephesians 1:17)
“I want to know how God created this world… I want to know His thoughts; the rest are details.” – Albert Einstein
On October 14, 1947, Captain Charles E. “Chuck” Yeager became the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound. With this historic flight, Yeager ushered in the beginning of America’s launch into outer space and NASA’s modern space shuttle program.
Breaking the sound barrier also broke the fear of the unknown. Yeager later described his supersonic flight as “A poke through jell-o,” “Sipping lemonade on the front porch,” and “A perfectly paved speedway.” The real barrier was not in the sky; it was in man’s lack of knowledge regarding supersonic flight.
Christians often face challenges and barriers in doing God’s will. Even the most difficult barriers can be broken, and believers can go to places in God they have never been. The Apostle Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 1 contains the necessary ingredients for every Christian to breakthrough any barriers they face. Paul called this necessary ingredient the “spirit of wisdom and revelation.”
Confession: I have the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ!
