Hosea 13:12-13(NIV): The guilt of Ephraim is stored up, his sins are kept on record. Pains as of a woman in childbirth come to him, but he is a child without wisdom; when the time arrives, he doesn’t have the sense to come out of the womb.
Oftentimes, lack of wisdom is the fundamental cause of the problems many people face in life.
When you examine some people’s lives, they are making a beeline for failure because every step they are taking is characterised by an utter lack of wisdom.
Unfortunately, many Christians who are blind to this truth spend a big part of their lives ‘treating symptoms’ instead of addressing the cause.
Take the example of Ephraim in our theme scripture. The Bible says that when the time arrived, he did not have the sense to come out of the womb.
So, some see Ephraim’s delays in life and call them poverty but God sees a lack of wisdom.
Some see Ephraim’s affliction and disease and call it a demonic affliction but when God weighs all factors concerned, He sees Ephraim’s lack of wisdom.
Wisdom is the principal thing (Proverbs 4:7).
If you ever find yourself stuck in life, fighting old battles with new words and labouring under the burden of frustrated potential, seek wisdom. It will always pave the way for your breakthrough.

GOLDEN NUGGET: If you ever find yourself stuck in life, fighting old battles with new words and labouring under the burden of frustrated potential, seek wisdom. It will always pave the way for your breakthrough.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I function under the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You. I pray, give, fast, serve and relate in wisdom as the foundation on which I build my life, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
