But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory – 1 Corinthians 2:7

Notice that our opening verse doesn’t say, “we talk about the wisdom of God,” but that “…we speak the wisdom of God….” Have you ever spoken wisdom? Do you know what it is to speak wisdom? The wisdom of God is creative wisdom; that’s the wisdom that made this world: “He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion,” (Jeremiah 10:12).

Just like Him, we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory. The wisdom of God is spoken in esoteric language; it’s not a language for everybody! It’s a closed communication, revealed only to the “initiated.” Only those who’re spiritually mature understand when we speak the wisdom of God: “Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought” (1 Corinthians 2:6).

For instance, when you say, “I have the life of God in me”; you’re speaking the wisdom of God. When you say, “I’m full of wisdom, glory and strength; I’m walking in victory, righteousness and grace”; that’s speaking the wisdom of God. Someone might say to you, “How dare you speak so highly of yourself; aren’t you being boastful?” No, you’re not! You’re speaking the wisdom of God.

The Word of God is the wisdom of God. Those who think we’re braggadocios when we speak the Word, and boldly declare who we are in Christ—our rights, privileges, inheritance, and abilities in Him—don’t understand the esoteric nature of our communication. 1 Corinthians 2:14 says, “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”

Confession  

I walk in the light, as He is in the light. I walk in glory, strength, victory, and righteousness today. My life is the manifestation of the wisdom and grace of God! I’m what God says I am.
