Proverbs 3:4 “So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.”
Based on commands regarding wisdom, it is obvious that faithfully clinging to God’s wisdom will bring us favour in His eyes. Yet, God’s promises regarding wisdom go far beyond this. In fact, faithfully clinging to Godly wisdom will bring us favour in the eyes of man. It is through this favour that we can deflect glory to the Lord.
Because of the distinctness of their testimonies, based largely on Godly wisdom, Daniel and Joseph found great favour in the eyes of worldly rulers. These men refused to become part of their ungodly cultures in order to reach them. Indeed, their strong stance for the Lord combined with an amazing level of insight possible only through provision from God Himself, caused them to change their lands without compromise. Indeed, compromise would have undermined the powerfully distinctive understanding that brought them favour to begin with.
As followers of the Lord in our ungodly land, we need to cling to distinctive Godly wisdom in order to impact our nation. Clinging to anything else, as we have errantly done in the past, will further undermine our ability to impact America for the Lord. PLEASE PRAY THAT AMERICAN CHRISTIANS, CLINGING TO GODLY WISDOM, WOULD FIND GREAT FAVOUR IN OUR LAND. Godly wisdom greatly impacted Egypt and Babylon through favour found by faithful followers. If we trust in it now, then according to God’s promises it can do the same in America today.
