ROR – Divine Wisdom Versus Intelligence – Wednesday, May 6th 2020 By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD. DSc. DD.


Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory (1 Corinthians 2:6-7).

There’s a difference between intelligence and wisdom. There’re lots of people who are living by intelligence, and despite their “intelligence,” life defeats them. Intelligence is part of our animal characteristics. Humans are only given the highest intelligence, but when you’re born again, you’re translated from human intelligence to divine wisdom.

Wisdom is what gives you divine interpretations; it gives you insight into reality. For example, in Luke 8:51-56, a child was sick, and the father invited Jesus. But before Jesus arrived, the child died. So, they informed Him that the child had died, but He went anyway. The Bible says, “The house was filled with people weeping and wailing….”
Jesus said to them, “… Stop the weeping! She isn’t dead; she is only asleep” (Luke 8:52 NLT). That was wisdom talking. But they thought He was insane, because according to their “intelligence” (biological understanding), the little girl was dead; her heart had stopped.

But life is spiritual, and Jesus understood this. He was wisdom personified. Wisdom knew that the child was sleeping. All He said was, “Little girl, get up”; and the Bible says the girl came to life! This is what God is bringing you into: a perfection of His wisdom in you that brings you into alignment with His thoughts and ways of doing things. Then you see as God sees; you understand from His perspective.

The only way you can see how God sees is by using the spectacles of His Word. Suddenly, your thinking process will be elevated; your mindset will be renewed. Even your perception of yourself and your interpretation of life’s circumstances would all change, because of the ministry of divine wisdom in your life.


Christ is made unto me wisdom! I live victoriously, taking advantage of God’s Word and His grace available to me. I have light, understanding and excellent wisdom. I walk in victory in my job, business, family, finances and everything about my life. Amen.

Extract From Rhapsody Of Realities Daily Devotional


Divine life has been imparted into my spirit through Jesus Christ. That life in me destroys, paralyzes, and renders ineffective the works of the devil and his attempts on my health, family, finances, and business. I’m alive to God, to His wisdom, righteousness, love, and grace; His Spirit is at work in me even now, causing me to know and have deeper and fuller insight into mysteries and secrets of the Kingdom. The eyes of my understanding are enlightened to the realities and truth of the Gospel, in Jesus Name. Amen.

#TalkingSession (What you say is what you get)


Thanks be unto God, who has qualified me to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the Kingdom of light.

The Lord has made my life easy, glorious, and exciting; He’s taken charge of my family, health, finances, and all my affairs. Therefore, I live in absolute rest, peace, and joy today, and always.

I declare that in whatever situation that I am, I am independent of external forces. I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency. I have every favour and earthly blessings in abundance, and I am always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient, possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation.

I know who I am. I have come to the understanding that I am one in whom Christ dwells, and Christ is my everything. I am complete in Christ; I am full; I’ve arrived; I have it all. Hallelujah!

I achieve the extraordinary, heaping success upon success. I have the ability to deliver excellence in every task or assignment that’s committed to me, and the power to do the unimaginable, the unthinkable, and the impossible because Christ lives in me.

I walk in the light of God’s blessings and abundance for me in Christ. I live by the Word; I refuse to allow circumstances of life dictate my response to God’s Word. I am absolutely independent of circumstances, such that no matter what happens, I am always on top.

I am an oasis of love in a troubled world. No matter the trouble around me, I am unruffled; I only make progress and move forward, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Hallelujah!

• Keep saying it, publish it everywhere; noise it abroad! In Christ, we’ve got something to shout about. Let’s flood the airwaves, internet, and print media with the reality of Christ.
