True wisdom is the gift of God. You can’t operate wisdom without reasoning, or engaging your senses. Where wisdom and reasoning exist, there also exists wealth. Engage the wisdom of God by
maintaining a “there is a way out” attitude, praying
“revelation-expectant” prayers and laying hold of the resources and
materials that will lead to wisdom showing up to give you the answers
you need.


  1. God’s wisdom is the principle thing (Proverbs 3:13-16; James 3:15).
    1. There are three kinds of wisdom: heavenly wisdom, earthly wisdom and demonic wisdom.

    2. True wisdom is the gift of God.
      1. Heavenly wisdom is made available to you when you speak in other tongues (1 Corinthians 2:6-8).

      2. The wisdom that is from above is superior to any other kind of wisdom.

    3. The God of wisdom will shed unique light and wisdom on your path.

  2. Wealth is found where wisdom dwells.
    1. God is still giving His people knowledge and skill, just as He did to Daniel. He has provided a way for you to tap into riches and wealth
      (Daniel 1:17).

    2. All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge can be found in Christ.
      1. Wisdom dwells in Jesus and Jesus dwells in you; therefore, wealth is inside of you, waiting to come out.

      2. You are a treasure of wisdom and knowledge. You have productive wisdom inside of you.

  3. Reasoning makes you rich (Proverbs 24:3-4).
    1. The creative abilities within you will only come to light when you adequately exercise your senses.

    2. The degree of mental action you engage in determines how far you excel in life.

    3. Wisdom will not operate without reasoning.

    4. You must be a thinker, because God is a thinker.

    5. It takes facts and the application of truth to those facts to bring forth positive results.
      1. Christians often try to deny the existence of the physical realm.

      2. There are natural things that must be dealt with through supernatural means.

  4. There are three ways to exercise your senses.
    1. Take time.
      1. Time is the greatest asset in the school of creativity.

      2. Daniel took time in order to get the necessary revelation to bring before the king. He prayed a “revelation-expectant prayer” (Daniel 2:16-20).
        1. Revelation-expectant prayers are “prayers that communicate in expectant faith with God; opening up to receive directions from on High.”

        2. When you ask God a question, expect to hear from Him.

        3. God will teach you how to profit and lead you in the way you should go (Isaiah 48:17).

      3. It is better to be slow and sure than to be fast and fail.

      4. Don’t rush into things—sit down, think and count the cost.

      5. Be discreet in your affairs; use wisdom to avoid error and select the best course of action (Psalm 112:5; Joshua 1:8, AMP).

    2. Seek information.
      1. Decisions based on quality information will always lead to distinction.

      2. Get the facts related to your situation.

      3. Locate resources and materials that will enhance your decisions, such as books and tapes.

      4. Daniel needed information in order to make quality decisions (Daniel 9:2).

    3. Mediate.
      1. Meditation is “processing acquired information to make quality decisions.”

      2. Every success is tied to meditation.

      3. Man is first a thinker, then a worker (Psalm 1:2-3).

      4. Engage wisdom by maintaining a “there is a way out” attitude, praying “revelation-expectant” prayers and laying hold of the materials that
        will release light in your situation.

  5. Sin corrupts your mentality (Proverbs 13:20; Job: 32:8).
    1. Don’t practice something that will stop enlightenment from coming.
