Wisdom Of The Righteous.
And he will go on before the Lord, in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the parents to their children and the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous–to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”
I want you to mark the expression in our opening verse above – “The wisdom of the righteous.” The verse says we’re to turn the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom of the righteous, which means the righteous have a certain kind of wisdom.
Now, what kind of wisdom does the righteous have? The Greek word from which “Wisdom” here is derived from “Phronesis”; it means a mind-set; a fixed mental attitude or a disposition that predetermine a person’s responses to situations, and his interpretations of those situations. Such mental attitude influences your actions under a given situation. It’s a programming of your mind to reason, respond, interpret situations and behave in a certain way, usually, the most excellent way!
Jesus had this mind-set. Recall a certain occasion when He went up the mountain to pray, and when He was through, His disciples had sailed out into the sea, and all the boats were gone, being late at night. He didn’t panic. He didn’t start praying “Oh God, please help me now.” No. he just stepped out on the water and walked on it as though it were dry ground. He didn’t think of sinking, because He had a fixed mental attitude! To Him, there was no difference between the sea and dry ground; nothing was going to stop Him from getting to the other side of the shore. He had a mind-set that had no sense of fear or impossibilities.
God expects us, His children, to function with the mind-set of the righteous, which can only be gotten through the Word of God. The Word of God helps you form the right mind-set; the mind-set of a victor; the mind-set of one who’s more than a conqueror; the mind-set of success.
Dear Heavenly Father! Your Word has enriched me with the right mind-set. The mind-set of the righteous, such that my response to circumstances and situations are from the standpoint of victory! Thank You for Your wisdom that’s at work in me to function with the dominion of the Spirit, in Jesus Christ name, Amen!
Thank You Jesus.
