The second kind of wisdom is found in verses 17-18 ofrepparttar above scriptures-this is true wisdom and it is by this that any fighter can face, fight, and win in any battle of life. Therefore ‘wise counsel’ is actually counsel based on true wisdom. And it is this brand of wisdom that is ‘lost’ torepparttar 148218 hearts of human beings.

Job 28(KJV) verse 12 "But where shall wisdom be found? and where isrepparttar 148219 place of understanding?"

This all-important question has to be corrected answered for anyone to truly experience real victory in this world!

Job 28(KJV) verse 23 "God understandethrepparttar 148220 way thereof, and he knowethrepparttar 148221 place thereof."

This statement of truth is what bringsrepparttar 148222 turning point inrepparttar 148223 making of true champions! But how can this be relevant to us today?!

Job 28(KJV) verse 28 "And unto man he said, Behold,repparttar 148224 fear ofrepparttar 148225 LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding."

Fromrepparttar 148226 above scripture, we learn from God Himselfrepparttar 148227 fear ofrepparttar 148228 LORD is wisdom!

This reverential fear is possessed only by those who have a personal covenant relationship with God. Anyone can enter into this relationship by humbly coming to Jesus Christ (Matt 11:28); repenting from one’s sins (Acts 2:38); and receiving Him (John 1: 12-13) as personal Lord and Saviour. It is only in Christ that this brand of wisdom is ‘found’!

How does any covenant child of God access wise counsel?

This is done regularly byrepparttar 148229 indwelling Spirit of God who teaches God’s people fromrepparttar 148230 scriptures directly or indirectly through lives and words of others (written or spoken).

Membership: Each of them belonged to one ofrepparttar two and a half tribes of Israel. No Christian should fight his battles alone. One needs to be a member of a church, fellowship, or ministry at a local level to be supported by others, and to support others too. Similarly, any Christian group can ‘network’ with one or more other groups to be onrepparttar 148217 cutting edge inrepparttar 148218 Lord’s battles. Maturity: None of them was born a man. Spiritual growth is vital to berepparttar 148219 Christian to become strong inrepparttar 148220 Lord for battle. Trials, other Christians, and basic disciplines like prayer, fasting, and bible study are vital tools in this regard. Skill: The Christian should know what his weapons really are and how to use them, grounded inrepparttar 148221 Word and yielded torepparttar 148222 Holy Spirit. Opposition: Discernment is needed to knowrepparttar 148223 real adversary and courage is important in facingrepparttar 148224 foe Strategy: Byrepparttar 148225 prayer of faith, any Christian will humbly turnrepparttar 148226 mighty hand of God to enforcerepparttar 148227 victory of Christ on Calvary on his behalf. Territory: ‘Possessingrepparttar 148228 land’ goes beyond enjoying being blessed inrepparttar 148229 Lord. It also involves being a blessing forrepparttar 148230 Lord in saving lost souls fromrepparttar 148231 wicked one in a dying world around us-God’s kingdom is advanced andrepparttar 148232 Lord takes allrepparttar 148233 credit! 2 Corinthians 2(KJV) verse 14 "Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifestrepparttar 148234 savour of his knowledge by us in every place."
