“He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.”
Daniel 2:22 NIV
Yesterday I went into our kitchen to warm something up in our microwave. When the time was up and the microwave bell rung that “it was finished” I looked and the clock on it said 2:22. As I saw this it hit my spirit as significant. Although I see triple numbers often I don’t always sense it is the Spirit prompting me to seek Him further regarding it.
As I sought out the significance of this 222 further I discovered that the English word for wisdom appears in Bible verses 222 times. As I read those words I heard the Spirit say,
“The wisdom that many need to breakthrough the opposition that stands before them and move forward into their promised victory is on its way.”
Our wisdom is God’s wisdom and His wisdom both confuses the world and the enemy who rules in the earthly realm. As we receive the wisdom from above it will unlock the way to victory, success and advance both you and His Kingdom forward.
“Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:4 NLT
Though we live in this world, we are not of this world. There is a wisdom that is from God that gives you what you need to overcome the world. The Book of Proverbs encourages us to find wisdom, wear wisdom and hold onto wisdom.
“Don’t turn your back on wisdom, for she will protect you. Love her, and she will guard you. Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment.”
Proverbs 4:6-7 NLT
As God’s children we seek FIRST His Kingdom (knowing that everything else that we need will be added to us). The wisdom that rules His Kingdom will come upon you. We also pray for His Kingdom to come and His will to be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Praying this is a part of seeking first His Kingdom as we yield our will to His wisdom and will.
Those in the world, who do not know God, use their wisdom to build only an earthly kingdom (wealth, houses and power) but when they leave this Earth their wisdom will prove to be absolute foolishness, for their kingdom will be left behind. But for the people of God they will inherit a Kingdom that is eternal. Even earthly wealth will be given to those who seek first the Kingdom of God.
“God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him. But if a sinner becomes wealthy, God takes the wealth away and gives it to those who please him…”
Ecclesiastes 2:26 NLT
The key to receiving wisdom is to seek first His Kingdom. Help will come to you in the form of wisdom and it will give you more than a momentary breakthrough but it will release the blueprints of Heaven needed for His will to be made manifest in your life on this Earth just as it is in Heaven.
I will leave you with a verse from Colossians 2:2-3 (interesting that it is from 2:2),
“My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
Kingdom wisdom says that as we give it will be given back to us. Prayerfully consider giving a financial gift to our ministry today. We have three ministry trips that need to be funded coming up. I will be sending out an invitation to join us on one of those trips very soon.
