Wisdom Will Lead

For the past couple days the Lord has been speaking to me about wisdom. He has been sharing with me how wisdom is about to be put on display for a generation to see. The Bible has the blueprint for ever move God has ever done and will do. We do not need to try and figure it, be the first to name it, or even be the leading voice in it. When Lonnie Frisbee was preaching on the beaches of California he did not know what a legacy he would leave, he was preaching out of his love for God and love for people. Moves of God are powerful, palatable and unexplainable at the time.

We live in what I call a recycled generation. There is recycled fashion trends, recycled ministry models, recycled church plants all just like what we’ve seen before but nothing new, nothing fresh. Yes it feels new to the ones who didn’t already live through it, but I believe our God is still Creator and has a creative idea for this generation. Something that will mark us with a legacy like Smith Wigglesworth has or Ruth Heflin carries. This is why I see wisdom leading the way in this move of God. We have a generation that has seen and heard the charlottes of ministry in their polished performances, but no power; their tricky offering speeches but little generosity; their poor members but rich leaders. Trust me they have observed more than most realize and they want something real, a real God and real relationships with real answers to real questions.

Wisdom is not flashy; wisdom is not professional; wisdom cannot be bought; wisdom comes from God alone. Proverbs 1 says wisdom is “Written down so we’ll know how to live well and right, to understand what life means and where it’s going; A manual for living, for learning what’s right and just and fair; To teach the inexperienced the ropes and give our young people a grasp on reality.” This generation has a ton of information but no wisdom, but God is about to put wisdom on display so a generation can be discipled. How do I know? Because they are already taking the first step. “Start with GOD—the first step in learning is bowing down to GOD;” (Proverbs 1:7). 19 college campuses and growing in what? Worship, bowing down to God.
