Woman, Turn To Your Stronghold! 2

Welcome to another time in God’s presence. In the first part of this write-up, I pointed out that women have an arsenal of fool-proof weapons that can help them make a difference wherever they are found. However, most of the time, these weapons are unused because many women do not even recognize them.

In this second part, I would like to focus more on the most important weapon, which is wisdom; why it is so crucial and how to get and operate it.

Why Wisdom?

  1. Even God needed to operate by wisdom: The Lord possessed me in the beginning of His way, before His works of old (Proverbs 8:22). So, we, His children, need to also understand that wisdom is our heritage because we were made after His likeness. If God needed wisdom, so do we.
  2. Wisdom is a covenant creator: It can create anything you need or lack in your home, relationships, job, and business etc. The Lord by wisdom founded the earth… Proverbs 3:19).
  3. Wisdom subdues your enemies: A wise man scaleth the city of the mighty, and casteth down the strength of the confidence thereof (Proverbs 21:22). What strife, harassment and anger cannot produce, wisdom will deliver cheaply into your hands.

How To Operate Wisdom.

You operate wisdom via reasoning or pondering. According to   1Corinthians 2:16, at salvation your mind was upgraded; now you have the mind of Christ to reason at His level!

What situation is confronting you and giving you concern and sleepless nights? What is it that you appear not to have an answer to? What is it that remains a hard nut to crack in your life?

It is time you engaged the wisdom of God in that situation through reasoning, i.e. deep thinking. Rub minds with God and do supernatural analysis of the situation. He said in Isaiah 1:18: Come now let us reason together…

Examine yourself and ask some salient questions about what is frustrating you, e.g. ‘How did it come about? How did you contribute to the situation? How are you handling it? Is your response productive or is it worsening the situation and so on and so forth.

This is the process of engaging divine wisdom; and before long, you will know what to do based on the outcome of your reasoning with God.

How to Get Wisdom.

  1. Seek knowledge.

As I mentioned in Part 1 of this write-up, knowledge is the raw material you need to create wisdom. Go for relevant information in the area where you have a challenge because that is the raw material that God will use to reason with you when you are pondering over the matter. Proverbs 10:14: Wise men lay up knowledge… and Proverb 18:15: The ear of the wise seeketh knowledge…

To get knowledge, you need to be studious in the Word of God as well as in other anointed materials like books, tapes, magazines etc.


  1. Pray and ask God for it.

James 1:5: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not, and it shall be given to him. If you desire the weapon of wisdom to help you on your journey through life, ask God for it, earnestly, in prayer. Note that this should not be a once-and-for-all thing. Keep asking, as the need arises, and watch God decorate your life with His wisdom that will always bail you out of every situation.

Woman, you no longer have any reason to be stranded or helpless. It is time you became more aware of your stronghold and take full advantage of it to the glory of God.

I see you prevailing over every negative circumstance of your life in the name of Jesus. The latest defeat you experienced will be the last forever in the mighty name of Jesus.

Remember, however, that this wisdom comes from God and you can only have access to it if you are one of His. Without a personal relationship with Him through Jesus Christ, you will not be able to receive or operate this wisdom. I would like to invite you now to welcome Him into your life. If you are ready, pray this prayer by faith:  Lord Jesus, I come to you today. Save me from my sin. Make me a new creature. Write my name in the Book of life; thank You Jesus for saving me. Now, I know that I am born again.

Congratulations, for taking this bold step! I see you growing in strength in Jesus name. Amen.
