‘Wisdom is supreme, therefore get wisdom.’ These were the words of Solomon, a great leader and man of wisdom (Prov. 4). His leadership was undergirded with an ability to see beyond the vale, bringing forth decisions that yielded Godly results for his people.
Wisdom is insightful for a purpose--to make your decisions leading to the Father’s planned results. Wisdom brings with it the ability to understand what is behind the façade of a circumstance.
As leaders, we primarily see and experience life with our five senses. We tend to evaluate and make leadership decisions with those five senses. Oh yes, as Christian leaders we pray, but even our prayer is often focused on what we have seen, heard, smelled, touched, or tasted in a life situation. So our praying becomes laden with those 5 senses.
To have wisdom for a particular situation we must have a view of what’s ‘behind the curtain’ or what God sees from his higher vantage point. Wisdom then gives you insight beyond the 5 senses and discerns the action that will bring forth God’s results.
