“Who is as the wise man? And who knoweth the interpretation of a thing a man’s wisdom maketh his face to shine, and the boldness of his face shall be changed” Eccl. 8:1 (KJV)
Whoever observes the kings command will experience no harm , and a wise man’s mind will know both when and what to do. For every purpose and matter has its right time and judgment, although the misery and wickedness of man lies heavily upon him(who rebels against the king). For he does not know what is to be , for who can tell him how and when it will be?” a wise man’s heart discern both time and judgment” Eccl. 8:5-7
There are three important components of Wisdom seen from these scriptures and, one can lead to another
- . An ability to judge, to discern and to interpret a thing. an event , a mystery or secret.
When a man can understand what is around him, he is a potential victor already, he is able to give interpretations to life and the circumstances of life . The reason why people get defeated in life is because they can’t understand what is happening around them and are confused.
When you can stand out of things and see things for yourself the way they ought to be seen , you are at the vantage point. That is what we should seek to be doing as believers; we shouldn’t just be behave like mere men that don’t have the Spirit of God in them
- An ability to know the right time for a thing or purpose.
When Joseph interpreted the dream to Pharaoh, he said” now that you have seen it twice , it is an established thing that its going to happen” in order words , don’t put it into the future.
1 Chronicles 12: 32”…men of Issachar… know what Israel ought to do…”
What would the life of a person be who is able to know the time for everything in his life? Can we have such a man? Yes we can. As a believer you cannot afford to use chronological age to determine things for yourself because you are not a man of chronological age you are a man of times and seasons. Even though the physical circumstance around you may not be telling you it’s the time for a thing you need to work with the Spirit of God to know the season for a thing in your life; when you don’t know, you are going to miss that season , and will have to work harder to get back into it.
- An ability to know the right thing to do at the right time.
“If any of you lack wisdom let him ask..” this is something we must do so that we don’t miss what God wants to do; to do the thing God wants one to do at the right time of a season becomes a critical thing to determine whether when that season is over, your level doesn’t drop. This is because seasons can change, no one season lasts forever, it comes and goes , it’s a cycle.
1 Cor. 2: 6”…we have the wisdom that is not of this world…”, You can have the wisdom for this season that will cause you to maximize what God has for you, you can operate in these things; by the Spirit of God you have it. , don’t just do what you were doing before, don’t just assume you know what to do; don’t judge what you can do by the physical, judge it by the Spirit of God and ask him Lord what would you have me do?
