1 Cor 12:8

INTRODUCTION: Ecc 9:13-18, Prov 4:7. The word of wisdom is a supernatural revelation by the Spirit of God concerning the divine purpose in the mind and will of God. God has all knowledge and wisdom, the bible says that God is wisdom (1 Cor 1:24, Rom 11:33, Dan 2:22) God knows everything, but He never reveals to anybody everything He knows. He just gives them a word of what He knows.

  1. DEFINITION OF WISDOM
    Wisdom is ability of applying knowledge rightly Ecc10:10 ‘wisdom directs”. Just as wisdom is knowledge applied, so the spiritual gift of the word of wisdom is the supernatural ability to apply knowledge already possessed. It is God showing the How, Why, When, Where, and What of a matter. It is supernatural solution of a problem.
  2. BIBLE EXAMPLES
    1 Kings 3:16-28. Solomon faced with a pr
    oblem. Two harlots claimed the live baby after one had been smothered to death during the night. It seems that, like a flash, the Spirit showed Solomon to call for a sword. He commanded to divide the live baby between the two women. The Woman who cried for the baby’s life was the mother. If Solomon possessed this kind of wisdom naturally, why does he ask for wisdom (2 Chron 1:7-12).
  3. PHAROAH’S PROPHETIC DREAM AND JOSEPHS INTERPRETATION
    Gen 41:1-44. God revealed what shall take place in Egypt, but Pharaoh did not understand it, God gave Joseph a word of knowledge and wisdom to tackle the situation.
  4. JESUS OVERCAME HEROD POLITICAL PARTY AND PHARISEES
    Mt 22:15-22. Jesus manifested the word of wisdom in answering His enemies. Apostle Paul did the same thing because “wisdom directs,” Acts 23:6-9. The Apostles overcame their internal dissension through the word of wisdom, Acts 6:1-5. This gift was very profitable in the conference at Jerusalem,
    Acts 15:1-22.
  5. REMEMBER THE PROMISE AND WORDS OF GOD
    Lk 21:12-15, Lk 12:11-12, Mt 16:16-20. In the mischievous traits of the enemy, God promised to give us words of wisdom to overcome them.
  6. THE WORD OF WISDOM AND WORD OF KNOLEDGE OFTEN OPERATE TOGETHER
    Acts 9:10-16, Acts 8:26-29. They are classified as revelation gifts. “The gifts that see.” The word of wisdom is application of divine knowledge.
  7. YOU NEED THIS GIFT – WORD OF WISDOM
    You can handle people just as God would. You can run your career and business just as God would. You can settle matters just as God would, you can overcome every circumstance just as God would, “Oh, the depth of the riches, both the wisdom of God and the knowledge of God. How unsearchable are His judgements, and his ways past finding out” (Rom 11:33). Ask God for wisdom, James 1:5. It is an insult to God that believers in Christ filled their lives with earthly, James 3:15 insinuations and conscience and wild guesses. In every field of business, you need the wisdom of God.
