Scripture: Proverbs 8:12-21
Proverbs 8:12-21 says “I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And find out knowledge and discretion. The fear of the Lord is to hate evil; Pride and arrogance and the evil way And the perverse mouth I hate. Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom; I am understanding, I have strength. By me kings reign, And rulers decree justice. By me princes rule, and nobles, All the judges of the earth. I love those who love me, And those who seek me diligently will find me. Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, And my revenue than choice silver. I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of judgment (mish-pawt), That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.” It is obvious that wisdom is the beginning of God leading us into the fulfilling of His purpose. As we pray in the Spirit and His wisdom comes forth there is an application that we find in verses 20-21. It says, “I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice/mish-pawt, That I may cause those who love me to inherit wealth, That I may fill their treasuries.” Mish-pawt is the Hebrew word for a judge/shaw-fat. Praying in the Spirit brings us the wisdom of God and the wisdom of God leads us in the paths of judgment and the paths of God’s judgment when manifested through the believer cause us to inherit wealth and cause our treasuries to be filled for God’s purposes. This is not wealth so that somebody can live a better lifestyle. We are talking about abundant supply for the eternal purposes of God. We need God’s purposes to be funded and God’s wisdom brings that about. Praying in tongues is a path to the manifestation of that wisdom. Therefore praying in tongues is also a path to the fulfillment of God’s Word. This should be of heightened interest to those who are called as Kingdom treasurers. These saints carry a special anointing to spoil. If you are called to that arena, then it is time to start using your prayer language!
