MEMORISE: Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. – Proverbs 4:7

READ: Deuteronomy 34:9 (KJV)

9 And Joshua the son of Nun was full of the spirit of wisdom; for Moses had laid his hands upon him: and the children of Israel hearkened unto him, and did as the Lord commanded Moses.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Samuel 12-14

Open Heaven 26 March 2022 MESSAGE:

Today, we shall continue to examine the subject of dominion. This time we are looking at dominion through divine wisdom which is the correct application of divine knowledge. Our memory verse describes wisdom as the principal thing (Proverbs 4:7). Why is wisdom so important and correlated with dominion? The Bible says, “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” (Ecclesiastes 7:12). The Bible further says “Wisdom strengtheneth the wise more than ten mighty men which are in the city” (Ecclesiastes 7:19). Furthermore, the Bible says:

“A wise servant shall have rule over a son that causeth shame, and shall have part of the inheritance among the brethren” – Proverbs 17:2

One secret of the choice of Joshua as Moses’ successor is wisdom, according to our text for today. How did he acquire this wisdom that gave him dominion? The same text reveals that Joshua’s predecessor (Moses) laid his hands upon him. In other words, there was a transfer of anointing for wisdom, from Moses to Joshua. There is a lesson here: Joshua served his master wholeheartedly and he got what even the elders of Israel could not get – wisdom, which earned him dominion as the children of Israel obeyed him.

Joshua 1:1 establishes the truth that Joshua indeed served Moses. The problem with modern day followers is that they are not ready to serve wholeheartedly. Unfortunately, scholars and motivational speakers overemphasize principles of leadership only to leave the principle of followership behind. The truth of the matter is that you cannot be a good leader without first being a good follower. Joshua was a good follower, servant and diligent apprentice in the school of leadership; hence, he had dominion.

Beloved, if you want to have dominion, you must be full of divine wisdom. This is why the Bible says wisdom is the principal thing. This is possible through a daily study of the Bible. As you study the word of God, the Holy Spirit will reveal wondrous things unto you (Psalm 119:10).
