So many Christians are Spiritually blind, which means that they are unwilling to allow God to remove the debris in their eyes and in their hearts, so they continue being caught up in things that don’t matter. Strongholds rise up in the middle, between us and our destiny because we have been unwilling to be obedient to God. To tear down (demolish) these strongholds (plights, struggles -addictions, guilt, hatred, malice, strife, troubles, grudges, jealousy, coveting, greed) we have to allow God into our hearts and our minds so that we can think and see clear and can decipher between what is Godly versus ungodly; the terms Godly versus ungodly are used because there is a clear distinction between good and evil. Good has a worldly connotation and can mean something outside of right-living, as according to God.
Let’s open our lives (heart & mind) to God’s wisdom. We start by sincerely asking God to impart His wisdom, His knowledge, so that we can go to greater heights and are able to shed old, habitual sins, and change into what He desires of us. We can defeat the devil if we stay in The Wisdom of God.
God’s Wisdom will teach us who to associate with and will even give us insight into our enemies, not so that we can wage war against them, but so we can pray for them and be guided around our enemy’s plots of destruction; they will do us no harm when we stay in His Wisdom.
God’s Wisdom will show us how to act and how to respond; sometimes He may tell us to be still and see His salvation, watching Him work to make everything that meant to harm us, scatter and diminish!
God will untangle anything that has once entangled us when we choose Him! –Letting God show us, ahead of the storm, is much better than doing it on our own and then learning by hindsight. God-Sight is always better!
Isaiah 11:2 NLT | New Living Translation
And the Spirit of the LORD will rest on him–the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.
James 1:5 NLT | New Living Translation
If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.
Jeremiah 3:33 NIV | New International Version
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
Ecclesiastes 2:26 GNT |Good News Translation
God gives wisdom, knowledge, and happiness to those who please him, but he makes sinners work, earning and saving, so that what they get can be given to those who please him. It is all useless. It is like chasing the wind.
