When the Lord Jesus lived on earth, His disciples were with Him throughout His ministry. Yet the power that He had was lacking in them. But after His ascension, when the disciples were praying together one day, they were filled with the power of the Holy Spirit in such an immeasurable measure that the whole place shook (Acts Chapter 2).
After this incident, the disciples began to preach the Word of God boldly (Acts 4:13). The Lord Jesus gave them such great wisdom that those who saw them wondered, “They are uneducated and untrained men. How come they have such wisdom in them?” Since He filled them with His power, they proclaimed the Word of God boldly. Similarly, He will grant you special wisdom.
Since God the Father was with the Lord Jesus, He increased in wisdom (Luke 2:52). As seen in John 16:13, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. Bible reading is necessary for us to receive wisdom and live as blessed people (James 1:25). The Bible verses act like a mirror that reveals our inner man. The Lord will point out our shortcomings through the Scriptures. As we keenly observe them and set ourselves right, we shall be blessed.
We should not stop with our daily prayer. We should also read the Bible every day. The Lord has specific blessings for us in the Bible portions that we read. So when we read at least a chapter everyday and then pray, He will grant us abundant blessings. He will help us to complete that day successfully.
Dearly beloved, from today, you will see blessings increasing in your life when you thus read the Bible and pray. The Lord is doing this in my life as well as in our family. Though we may have to travel by bus, train or plane, we never fail to pray both in the morning and at night. We begin and end our day with family prayer. That’s why the Lord has blessed both the Jesus Calls ministry and our family life with good things.
“In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams” (Acts 2:17). God promises to fill everyone with His Holy Spirit. The anointing of the Holy Spirit will empower you with the wisdom to be a living testimony for God. You will not only be blessed but also be a blessing to others.
Loving Lord Jesus,
I pray for divine wisdom. Please fill me with the Holy Spirit and guide me into the truth of Your Word. Empower me with the wisdom to be a living testimony for You. Bless me and make me a blessing to others.
In Your matchless name I pray,
