How Do We Operate As Kings (Week 2)

Message by : Bishop C Holla

1 Peter 2 vs 9.

4. Kings have visions.

Without vision, people perish. As a king, have a vision. You should be able to see the future. Where do you want to be in 5 years? A king will see things other people don’t see. Plan and set goals to achieve that vision.

5. Kings have wisdom. 2 Chronicles 1 vs 7-10

In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee.
And Solomon said unto God, Thou hast shewed great mercy unto David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead.
Now, O Lord God, let thy promise unto David my father be established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.
10 Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?
  • Solomon understood that managing people is tough. Moses, the meekest man on earth failed to enter Canaan because of the people he was managing.

Proverbs 4 vs 5-9

Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.
She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.
Proverbs 8 vs 1,4
Doth not wisdom cry? and understanding put forth her voice?
Unto you, O men, I call; and my voice is to the sons of man.
  • Wisdom is different from intelligence.
  • Wisdom, knowledge and understanding are used interchangeably but they are different.
  • Wisdom is how you use the knowledge that you have.
  • You get knowledge by observing or studying.
  • Wisdom is determined by the decisions you make.
  • Wisdom is needed when you come at a crossroads and you need to know what to do in a situation.
  • Wisdom is the principal thing. Wisdom can’t be stolen, silver and gold can be replaced if you’re wise.
  • You don’t pray for knowledge, you learn and study. But you pray for wisdom.
  • Wisdom sees far, it doesn’t wait for a crisis.
  • Wisdom asks the question, “if this fails, what next?”
  • Moses had a problem, Moses was doing everything alone. Wisdom was choosing 70 men to help him judge.
