WISDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want…He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake (Psalm 23:1,3)
Did you know that wisdom and righteousness are intertwined? The wisdom (Greek: “phronesis”) that I’m talking about is practical wisdom. It’s the outworking of the righteousness of God in your life. When we talk about the righteousness of God, we’re talking about practical wisdom at work, the expression of “phronesis.”
We’re children of righteousness, and you can’t walk in righteousness and fail in wisdom (“phronesis”). The underlined portion of our theme verse says, “…he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness….” Walking in the paths of righteousness is “phronesis.” It means you don’t go anywhere by chance. You don’t meet anybody by chance; in your path, there’re no accidents. Everything is prearranged by God.
In studying the relationship between wisdom and righteousness in Proverbs 8:12-18, Wisdom says, “I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.”
With wisdom leading you in the paths of righteousness, you could never be poor. So, every day, declare, “Wisdom is at work in me today! No chance occurrences in my life. Predestination is at work in me.” Your life was planned by God to be on the path of wisdom and righteousness. Praise God!
Wisdom is at work in me today, and I’m set on a preordained path of righteousness! Predestination is at work in me. I don’t go anywhere by chance. I don’t meet anybody by chance; in my path of life, there’s no death. My life has a purpose with God. Amen._
Proverbs 8:12-21 I wisdom dwell with prudence, and find out knowledge of witty inventions. 13 The fear of the Lord is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate. 14 Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength. 15 By me kings reign, and princes decree justice. 16 By me princes rule, and nobles, even all the judges of the earth. 17 I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. 18 Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. 19 My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. 20 I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: 21 That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.
1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:

My life has been beautified by the only true and wise God. I am not of this world! I belong to God’s Kingdom. I am victorious over sin, sickness, disease, and poverty. I reign supreme all the time because I am in union with God. I am more than a conqueror in this life. I walk daily in the consciousness of my divinity in Christ. I refuse to allow sickness or disease to damage my body! I live a happy, joyful, and fruitful life. I am in constant health every day. I’m one with God! I have the indestructible life of God in me; hence, I am shielded from evil.
I cannot be a victim of sickness, disease, or mishaps. I am born of God; therefore, I walk in divine health every day, all year round. I declare that my life is beautiful and it cannot be destroyed by any form of infirmity. I do not get sick! I am fully fortified with the whole armour of God. No evil can come near me. I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. My faith prevails over all the enemy’s fiery darts of sickness, disease, and wickedness. I am full of life and I live the transcendent life in Christ that is far above sickness, disease, infirmity, and death.
I am not ordinary, because I am born of God. Thus, I function always with supernatural strength and abilities! My mind is stayed on the Lord and my trust is in my heavenly Father, He keeps me in perfect peace with health, strength, and vitality. I am impregnable to sickness, disease, and death. I live the glorious life every day and it is evident for all to See. As a partaker of the divine nature; my body is sustained by a force that the ordinary man cannot perceive. My health, strength, and wealth are assured in the mighty Name of Jesus. Amen.
