Embracing God’s Wisdom: The Path to Spiritual Revival and Overcoming Life

Ex 36:2  And Moses called Bezaleel and Aholiab, and every wise hearted man, in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, even every one whose heart stirred him up to come unto the work to do it:

Perhaps this is one of the best “snapshots” of what revival really looks like!  It is an amazing thing to watch the Lord put wisdom in someone, and to see their heart stir them up to do the work of God!  Notice the sequential order of events; first the wisdom, then the stirring up!  No wonder God said, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge...(Hos 4:6)”   Without God’s wisdom, insight, and perspective, we would have no reason to “stir up the gift of God” which is in us (see 2 Tim 1:6)!  First, because we wouldn’t know where to start; and second, even if we did, we’d lose heart very quickly after attempting to live this life from an earthly point of view!  However, when God imparts unto us a Heavenly wisdom which gives us a Heavenly point of view, then all of the sudden we view life from God’s perspective, and as a result learn to live the life of an over comer!  When this happens, you will change your vocabulary from “I can’t” to “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me (see Php 4:13)!”  From “It’s impossible” to “With God, ALL things are possible (see Matt 19:26)!”  From “I’m just a bearer of bad luck” to “No good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly (see Psa 84:11)!”  You see, God knows the end from the beginning (Isa 46:10), so when we would have thought it to be over, God saw the breakthrough just around the bend!  When we would have fainted, He helped us to strengthened our hands for this good work (Neh 2:18)!  When we were too sick to stand, He sent his word, and healed us, and delivered us from our destructions (see Psa 107:20)!  The fact is, when it’s the Lord imparting the wisdom, then it’s also the Lord stirring us up to serve Him with a revived heart, with a sure word, and with fresh revelation!
