November 17, 2020 Spirit Meat Devotional : Topic – WISDOM FOR RECEIVING YOUR MANIFESTATIONS (1) – James 1:4-5
Whenever we get to the point of receiving from the Lord, we must allow the wisdom of the Holy Spirit to help us out. The Holy Spirit is our helper, and He is always willing to assist us through.
Most times, what you are dealing with is different from what another person is dealing with. The test of faith is individualistic. You might not be in control of what life or the devil is going to bring up, but you have the right and the power to determine your outcome. The devil has no power to force an outcome on you, you can solely determine that. This is where the Holy Spirit wants to lead you; and with Him, you can be sure of a positive outcome.
James was dealing with the test of faith, and suddenly, in verse 5, he started talking about wisdom. This is because you will need the wisdom of God to receive. For example, you may be a wife, and the Lord tells you to apologize to your husband, and you say, “Never! My mother never did such, and it is not going to start with me.” You know, the devil will never lead you to do something that will bring peace and harmony to your home; this is the Holy Spirit bringing you to the place of receiving.
The greatest need of human beings is wisdom. This enables you to handle the details of life, put things together, and work the knowledge that is available to your advantage. This is where the Holy Spirit steps in to help us.
PRAYER: I receive the wisdom of God to handle the current challenges in my life. Amen!
