This blog entry is another in a series featuring a daily dose of “words to the wise,” poetically expressed from the Book of Proverbs.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been reading about and reflecting upon wisdom as revealed in the Book of Proverbs. Often I begin my day with such a period of meditation and reflection, which often results in a poetic expression that I incorporate into a blog entry for that day. In a number of the poems posted over the past two weeks there have been references, not just to “wisdom” per se, but to the “spirit of wisdom” which is a specific aspect of the “seven spirits of God,” spoken of in Isaiah 11:2 and elsewhere in the Bible.  Apostle Eric L. Warren’s most enlightening book The Seven Spirits of God: Learning to Walk in the Dominion and Authority of Christ provides an in-depth discussion of this vitally important and relevant concept.

One of the seven spirits mentioned in Isaiah 11:2 is the Spirit of Wisdom which has been mentioned in this series on wisdom.

The poem posted on Day 11 of the “Words of Wisdom” series examined “My True Identity,” a fundamental part of which relates to looking at myself spiritually in a new way, as I apply my heart unto wisdom, using the “Seven Spirits of God” in this manner:

The Seven Spirits of God: This Seven-fold Template

And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him,

the spirit of wisdom and understanding,

the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge

and of the fear of the LORD;

Isaiah 11:2

 

As my teacher, clearly show me how I relate

To the Seven Spirits of God revealed in Your Word,

As I place my life against this seven-fold template:

From dark chaos I call forth the Spirit of the Lord;

With creative insight from the Spirit of Wisdom

And the Spirit of Knowledge I am eager to learn

Of the unfolding fullness of the coming Kingdom;

Impart understanding that I might also discern,

As You enlighten my eyes and teach my hands to fight,

To win in spiritual warfare of the highest degree,

To be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might,

To walk in dominion, knowing Christ’s authority,

As the Spirit of Counsel offers advice, gives consent;

To know the fear of the Lord is ever to revere

And finish my course, my God-given assignment:

To abide in God’s awesome presence in meekness and fear.

Isaiah_11-2

    This prophecy has been fulfilled in Jesus Christ. Now Yahweh wishes that each of his sons and daughters lead a life within this Spirit of Wisdom, Knowledge, and fear of the Lord!

      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. Indeed, you are correct in that the Father desires that His sons and daughters experience the fullness of Christ in us, the hope of glory. Amen!

      God bless,
