The word “excellence” means to be superior.
What does it take to excel in marriage, school, as a Christian or financially? King Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth. How did he do that?
“So king Solomon exceeded all the kings of the earth for riches and for wisdom. And all the earth sought to Solomon, to hear His wisdom, which God had put in his heart.” -1 Kings 10:23-24
If you are going to excel in any field, one of the things that you will need is wisdom. This particular wisdom is not the wisdom of men of this world or that of the princes of this world. By this, I mean “common sense” or wisdom acquired through secular or formal education. These have their place, but this is not the wisdom we are talking about. We are talking about wisdom from God.
There are two things I want you to notice about the wisdom of God.
First, it is produced by the heart, not the mind.
Secondly, God has to put it on your heart. Do you have something on your heart? You may be pregnant with the wisdom of God.
Learn to listen to your heart because “heart wisdom” leads to excellence!
