BE DELIBERATE: FIRM UP YOUR DEFENSES – MONEY, WISDOM AND THE ALMIGHTY!!!
For wisdom is a defence, and money is a defence: but the excellency of knowledge is, that wisdom giveth life to them that have it. Ecc.7:12
Yea, the Almighty shall be thy defence, and thou shalt have plenty of silver. Job. 22:25.
Our opening scripture points us to three types of defense. 1. Money 2. Wisdom and 3. The Almighty.
It’s amazing how this three supreme powers for making meaningful possible in their spheres. Money to the Body, Wisdom to the Soul and The Almighty to the Spirit.
Before we strip the conversation bare, let us first appreciate the usage of the word defence. What does the Bible refer to here as defence.
Generic synonyms for the word Defence include – Protection, Rebuttal, Armament, Barricade, Vindication.
This could mean that money, wisdom and or The Almighty can be to us a protection, rebuttal, armament, barricade and vindication.
The mere discussion of having a defence is because you are protecting yourself from attacks. Yes, our finances can be under attack. Our health can be under attack. Our spiritual life, marriage, family can be under attack. If we do not have the appropriate defence, we would be unduly exposed.
Money must take care of the things money can take care of. But money can’t defend every area of your life. Wisdom delivers and like it says, even gives life to them that have it. Receive life in Jesus name. Amen!
The third is The Almighty. He is a defence. He is Spirit. And He defends us in all three realms. Spirit, Soul and Body.
If you have only money and wisdom, they will only serve to their abilities. You will need The Almighty to also be your defence where and when you cannot defend yourself.
It is my prayer that all three will be active in your life in Jesus name.
Be blessed and Please Remain God’s Pride! Amen!
