“After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!”

Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth.

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:28-30 NKJV


The glorious God has given us another day to be alive and serve our generation according to His will. Day unto Day He has been showing us mercies, giving us a word in season on this platform.

With less than 60 days to another year, according to the Gregorian calendar that we are following, we owe God a lot of thanks for all He have been doing in our lives. Yesterday we began a journey of faith with the Cry of the Holy Spirit on practical wisdom.

One of the major manifestations of God in our lives that will help us live blissful lives on earth is in the area of wisdom. The seven spirits of the LORD are all about the wisdom and fear of the LORD. A lot about our earthly lives depends on the state of or the wisdom quality that resides in our minds.

The necessity of practical wisdom to daily living, cannot be over emphasized. If the quality of your wisdom is low, you will definitely be leading a very backward life. What is in your head is what put you beneath or ahead in life. That is why the LORD has chosen the next 30 days (from yesterday) to talk to us about what is in our heads (our minds).

For many of us, practical wisdom has been the missing ingredient. We lead tasteless and inglorious lives because we lack this important ingredient. God wants that to change because we do not glorify Him in any way being frustrated because of foolishness.

The best way to lead a frustrated Christians life is to be serious with God but lack practical wisdom.

I studied the lives of few people I pastor who are going through certain had times that I thought were demonic attacks, and discovered that lack of practical wisdom is the reason for the states of their lives. Not that am better but I know a few things in life that Sometimes I wish I can give them my head to use in making decisions. But that is not possible.

The only thing we can do is to teach, train, father or mentor them, but even all that seems not to be working with some, because wisdom is for the wise at heart.


Which means, one must have a measure of intelligence or wisdom for teachings, trainings, fathering, or mentoring to be of help to them. If they do not have, they will either twist things that would improved their lives to their destruction, or hear and see them but not be able to us them to improve their earthly lives.

I have often discovered that most Christians cannot keep jobs or turn the financial tides of their lives around, not because of any demonic forces, but because they lack the ingredient of progress called practical wisdom.

Friend, God designed life to be piloted on the wheels of practical wisdom. With God on their side, it is those who are practically wise that will progressively succeed in life. That is why every effective prayer for progress in life always ends at the gate of practical wisdom.

In my bid to offer practical help to some, there are Christians I have found unemployable. They lack the practical wisdom to be employed. They cannot bring anything meaningful to the table if you employ them, yet they are serious minded Christians.

Now, if someone is that unemployable, no matter how prayerful or serious they are with God, they will remain in lack and poverty. There is a kingdom principle that says “he that do not work should not eat.” That is why It is an irony to expect daily bread from the God who tied the feeding of mankind to their work while you are not employable.

Sadly, instead of working on things that make them unemployable, many spiritually minded Christians think that prayer can give them food. A prayer that will put food on your table may work just for a moment. You must look for what to do with your hands after that.

God did not tie our feeding to prayer without work. An old mantra that guided our fathers in the 1960s reads “work and pray.” If you add that to what Jesus said over 2000 years ago, it will be “watch, work, and Pray.” Anyone who think he will live otherwise and still experience economic freedom is not being wise.

I think, instead of asking the LORD for provisions, we should begin to seek Him for practical wisdom. The lives of people who spend their prayer time focusing on gaining practical wisdom usually improve and progress faster than those who spend the same time seeking the LORD for other forms of interventions.


“After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!”

Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth.

So when Jesus had received the sour wine, He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit. John 19:28-30 NKJV

This scripture is one major scripture that every believer need to anchor their faith upon. There are prophetic truths in it that need to be fully uncovered but we cannot do it on this platform. The part we can uncover is hidden in what Jesus knew and what He said. The Bible says “Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled,

What are the things that were accomplished? All of our redemption and restoration was accomplished. Jesus, knew that and said, “it is finished.

Those last words of Christ mean so much. Only eternity can fully unveil what they mean. They accomplished great things for us both in Heaven and on earth. In Heaven, they cleared the way to the lost glory to return, on earth they made shameful living, unnecessary hardships, stagnation in life, backwardness and all that came by reason of sin, no longer legal in our lives.

Meaning if we find them in our lives, God did not permit them.

God will never permit what His cross canceled in our lives. And whatever God will not permit, we have the dominion to erase from our lives. One way we make use of that dominion is through practical wisdom. The Bible says;

“Through wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; By knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.” Proverbs 24:3-4 NKJV


Prayers, if effective and in God’s will, has a way of unlocking what we need from the Spirit realm, but for the results to get to the material world, we need practical wisdom. Wisdom will collect in the natural realm what prayer has unlocked in the Spirit’s realm. It will build in the natural realm what travailing prayers has finished in the Spirit’s realm. I hope you understand us.

Practical wisdom is the only way we can assembly on earth what God has finished concerning our lives in the Spirit’s realm. If you miss anything in this 30-day journey of faith, do not miss that.

Whatever we need from the LORD that aligns with His will for our lives, the Cross says it has been accomplished in Heaven, and finished. Meaning, We can have it on earth. It only depends on the quality of what lies in our minds.

Yesterday, we saw the relationship between practical wisdom and the release of miracles in the story of Lazarus. If that relationship does not exist in your quest for divine intervention in any area of life, you will never see things that God has settled in heaven concerning you come into manifestation in your life on earth.

Understand that, filling our minds with practical wisdom will make it easier to assembly in our lives what God has already finished concerning us in Heaven. Leaving it empty of practical wisdom will keep our lives barren and backward despite what God may have finished concerning us in Heaven.

I believe the message of today have been passed. We must all begin to seek the LORD for practical wisdom. At the course of this journey we will discover sources of practical wisdom. But as we bring this to a close, it is important to note that there is nothing that GOD has finished in Heaven that can be assembled in our lives if we lack practical wisdom.

When Moses saw the Tabernacle on the mountain of God’s glory, he saw somethings that was already finished in the Spirit’s realm. The next was to have it in the natural realm. But for that to happen, God had to appoint for him, not prayers warriors, But men who where filled with practical wisdom. That further tells us the importance of practical wisdom to our lives.

What is finished in the Spirit’s realm will remain absent in our natural lives if there is no practical wisdom in our minds. You must understand that as a child of God. We pick up from here tomorrow.


Then the LORD spoke to Moses, saying: “See, I have called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah.

And I have filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship, to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze, in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of workmanship.

“And I, indeed I, have appointed with him Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan; and I have put wisdom in the hearts of all the gifted artisans, that they may make all that I have commanded you: Exodus 31:1-6 NKJV
