The Third Determinant: Wisdom

The Third Determinant: Wisdom

November 29, 2020

Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV  I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the WISE, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

 

Wisdom shows up in the list of determinants as the winner of bread - that is, unless time and chance change the circumstances. Wisdom is the level of skill and judgment in applying the knowledge you have. You can't hide it - when it is lacking, it shows, when it is present it shows in your life!

  • wisdom determines your position and rank in your nation
  • wisdom determines your ability to stay in an elevated position
  • wisdom determines your place in ministry
  • wisdom determines your ability to work  in important places
  • wisdom determines the mighty works that you can accomplish

And it came to pass, when the evil spirit from God was upon Saul, that DAVID TOOK AN HARP, AND PLAYED WITH HIS HAND: SO SAUL WAS REFRESHED, and was well, and the evil spirit departed from him. 1 Samuel 16:23

 

  • decide to be a blessing to others
  • the more others benefit from your help and services
    • the more useful and important you become in society
    • the more popular you become
    • the richer you become
  • be like those who 'addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints' - 1 Cor 16:15-18
  • minister to others by seeking them out diligently to know their welfare - 2 Tim 1:16-18
How To Improve Your Strength

How To Improve Your Strength

November 22, 2020

Ecclesiastes 9:11 KJV  I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the STRONG, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all.

From Ecclesisates 9:11 we gather that the best outcomes are not always realized through speed, strength, wisdom, understanding and skill, but time and chance produces surprising outcomes. This is actually saying that barring the intervention of time and chance, the usual determinants are speed, strength, wisdom, understanding and skill - factors that we can influence.

In this episode, we look at some examples of strong men in the Bible we can learn to follow, and how to improve your strength.

  • Make God your strength - trust in His mercy.
  • Receive counsel from God
  • Strengthen yourself by returning and resting in God
The Art Of Following David Is The Art Of Embracing Menial Jobs

The Art Of Following David Is The Art Of Embracing Menial Jobs

November 18, 2020

And David came to Saul, and stood before him: and he loved him greatly; and he became his ARMOURBEARER.  1 Samuel 16:21

 

There are so many Christians who want to start out on top!  But the only job that begins at the top is grave digging!  If you study the background of many great people, you will discover that they once served at the lowest level in their profession.

 

The best leader is someone who has been a follower for many years.  Because you have done menial jobs, you are more reasonable with your subordinates.  You understand what they are going through and do not give impossible commands.

  • Strength determines the quality of your leadership
  • Strength determines your ability to fight against your enemy
  • Your strength determines whether your enemy will  attack you or not
  • Your strength determines your level of obedience to God
  • Your strength is determined by how much accusation you can withstand

 

The Art Of Following - David - NOT DESPISING SMALL THINGS

The Art Of Following - David - NOT DESPISING SMALL THINGS

Do not be afraid of small beginnings; God will lift you up.  You will benefit from all the experiences you have had in your small beginnings.

It was when David was looking after the few sheep that he had a fight with a bear and a lion.  It is because he was used to fighting impossible situations that he was able to take on Goliath.

The Art Of Following Joshua Is The Art Of Not Being Drawn Into A Culture Of Murmuring And Complaining

The Art Of Following Joshua Is The Art Of Not Being Drawn Into A Culture Of Murmuring And Complaining

November 4, 2020

And the Lord spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, How long shall I bear with this evil congregation, which murmur against me? I have heard the murmurings of the children of Israel, which they murmur against me. Numbers 14:26-27

 

Murmuring and complaining can become the culture of any office, church or group.  The Israelites developed this culture of being dissatisfied, discontent and disenchanted by everything their leader did. They complained about everything until their complaints sounded like madness.

 

Complaining and murmuring is satanic in its very nature.  Demonic things often make no sense when they are analysed.  It does not make sense when people shout and rave for being delivered from slavery. The senseless and unreasonable outbursts of the Israelites revealed the presence of demons amongst them.

  • Miriam developed leprosy because she murmured against Moses.
  • The Israelites developed plagues and diseases when they murmured against the Lord.
