Apostle Grace Lubega
Exodus 1:9-10 (KJV); And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: Come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land.
The Bible, in our theme scripture, reveals to us that the children of Israel were more in number and mightier than the Egyptians.
How come then, that despite their strength and numbers, they were belittled into slavery by the Egyptians? It is because the Egyptians chose to deal with them wisely. This proves to us the power of wisdom.
The increase, multiplication, and expansion upon your life may fail to benefit you if you lack wisdom. You may increase and still fall under the control of a wiser man.
That is why the Bible says in Proverbs 16:16 that it is better to acquire wisdom than gold. You can have all the money, all the influence, and all the strength you desire, but wisdom is the fundamental principle that maintains our lot.
The power of wisdom is in the fact that it preserves the blessing of God upon your life and also preserves you in that blessing.

PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. I thank You for the wisdom from above that is at work in me. I am preserved in the places of increase because I walk in the way of the wise and prudent, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
