Be #EPICStrong

  Before I knew it, it was the 11th month of 2020. Like many others who planned out their itinerary at the end of 2019, no one anticipated how this year would unfold. Even now I feel as though there is an invisible force determined to destroy humanity’s hope. Clinging to faith was inevitable in the face of a global pandemic and social unrest. It was the catalyst for my hunger for Truth, and not some regurgitated truth from multiple sources, but an actual quest to find answers to ongoing questions. Prophesies and dreams seemed to elude me as I questioned God’s words spoken over me in 2019.

 “Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” ‭‭Jeremiah‬ ‭33:3‬ ‭NLT‬‬

 “It is God’s privilege to conceal things and the [queen’s] king’s privilege to discover them.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭25:2‬ ‭NLT‬‬ (my paraphrase)

 When I inquired of the Lord, my discovery was one of elation and expectation. Elated that the answers that I sought came from a posture of love. Love for a Savior Who made it possible to come to the Father, and a Father Who time and time again came to my rescue because of my poor decisions. I was fully expectant that the Lord would respond to me. As I poured into the Word and referenced it with other passages, there was a recurring theme that kept popping up: Wisdom.

 “Wisdom is a gift from a generous God, and every word he speaks is full of revelation and becomes a fountain of understanding within you.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭2:6‬ ‭TPT‬‬

 “From a wise mind comes wise speech; the words of the wise are persuasive.” ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:23‬ ‭NLT‬‬

 To finish #EPICstrong we need to be wise. If we don’t know how, then we can ask Father God for wisdom for He gives it to us generously (James 1:5). Listen to King Solomon’s response: 

“That night the Lord appeared to Solomon in a dream, and God said, “What do you want? Ask, and I will give it to you!” Solomon replied, “You showed great and faithful love to your servant my father, David, because he was honest and true and faithful to you. And you have continued to show this great and faithful love to him today by giving him a son to sit on his throne. “Now, O Lord my God, you have made me king instead of my father, David, but I am like a little child who doesn’t know his way around. And here I am in the midst of your own chosen people, a nation so great and numerous they cannot be counted! Give me an understanding heart so that I can govern your people well and know the difference between right and wrong. For who by himself is able to govern this great people of yours?” The Lord was pleased that Solomon had asked for wisdom. So God replied, “Because you have asked for wisdom in governing my people with justice and have not asked for a long life or wealth or the death of your enemies— I will give you what you asked for! I will give you a wise and understanding heart such as no one else has had or ever will have! And I will also give you what you did not ask for—riches and fame! No other king in all the world will be compared to you for the rest of your life! And if you follow me and obey my decrees and my commands as your father, David, did, I will give you a long life.”‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭3:5-14‬ ‭NLT‬‬

 We are in unprecedented times, with greater opportunities for greater works. Let’s finish 2020 with wisdom.

 “But the wisdom from above is always pure, filled with peace, considerate and teachable. It is filled with love and never displays prejudice or hypocrisy in any form” ‭‭James (Jacob)‬ ‭3:17‬ ‭TPT‬‬
