Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Beloved, your Father in heaven by His wisdom had done all things and they were beautiful. You were created by His infinite  and manifold wisdom. See what the scriptures says.

Psalms 104:24 O Lord, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.

Psalms 136:5. To him that by wisdom made the heavens: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Proverbs 3:19. The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.

Jeremiah 10:12. 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 51:15. He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heaven by his understanding.

By the time  God, ended the creation of all things, He certified them Himself and concluded, they were good.

Genesis 1:31 And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Beloved, God wants you to follow His pattern in all things you do, taking advantage of His wisdom.  You will be able to do all things, with ease and seamlessly , should you apply His wisdom. However, humanity inside and outside the church of all ages, determinedly set aside God’s wisdom and apply their own carnal, sensual and devilish wisdom in all things.
This is what made them to meet with brick wall and avoidable failures. You shall not fail in Jesus name, so , do away with  carnal or sensual wisdom in all that you do henceforth.  See what the Bible says.

Proverbs 3:7. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil.

Proverbs 26:12: Seest thou a man wise in his own conceit? there is more hope of a fool than of him.

Isaiah 5:21: Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!

Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

No marvel, the Bible says wisdom is the principal thing you should get from God.

Proverbs 4:5-9 Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee.

Beloved, how them do you acquire God’s or godly wisdom? It is very simple. The entire word of God in the Bible are His wisdom.

Deuteronomy 4:5-6. Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it. Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

Whenever you want to do anything and everything in life, ask yourself the simple question. What does the Bible has to say, with what I want to do. When you humbly and wholeheartedly apply yourself to what, the Bible says in all situations, then you are bond to make your way prosperous and have good and desirable success. This shall be your portion in Jesus name.

Joshua 1:8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.

Deuteronomy 8:2-3. And thou shalt remember all the way which the Lord thy God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. And he humbled thee, and suffered thee to hunger, and fed thee with manna, which thou knewest not, neither did thy fathers know; that he might make thee know that man doth not live by bread only, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of the Lord doth man live.

Deuteronomy 5:29: O that there were such an heart in them, that they would fear me, and keep all my commandments always, that it might be well with them, and with their children for ever!

So henceforth in all your doings always seek the Lord, seek His ways in all things.

Psalms 34:10  The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing.

Jeremiah 33:3. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.

Isaiah 48:17-18. Thus saith the Lord, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the Lord thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go.O that thou hadst hearkened to my commandments! then had thy peace been as a river, and thy righteousness as the waves of the sea:

As long as you seek His ways, you shall experience seamless and glorious success and avoid, falling into snare of the devil.

2 Chronicles 26:5. And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.

Matthew 6:33. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

See what applying your heart to what the Bible says will do for you?  You shall have the mind of God. You shall not be puffed up seeking vain glory that drag humanity to perdition and then you shall not fall into snare or wiles and ploys  of satan. May the good Lord help you to apply your heart unto wisdom, till you meet Christ in Jesus name.

Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

2 Timothy 3:15-17. And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.

Dearly beloved, Jesus our Lord at the end of His earthly ministry recorded unprecedented success. He never at once fell into the snare of the devil. See what He said and what the blessed Holy Spirit says.

John 14:30. Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me.

Hebrews 4:15. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

You might wonder what enabled Him to accomplish all of these seamlessly? He simply submitted Himself to the godly counsel of His Father in heaven.

John 5:30. I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

He committed Himself wholeheartedly to live by God’s unfailing eternal and infallible written words.

Matthew 4:4. But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

By doing this, He left a precept and worthy example for believers of all ages and you to follow, to experience same dimensions of success. This shall be your portion in Jesus name.

1 Peter 2:21. For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:

So when next you about to do anything and everything in your life, till Christ comes, ask yourself this simple questions.  What does the Bible says about what I want to do or what will Jesus had done, if He were to be in this situation, I find myself now?  See the response of the blessed Holy Spirit, to this simple question.

Matthew 7:24-25. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.

Luke 6:47-48. Whosoever cometh to me, and heareth my sayings, and doeth them, I will shew you to whom he is like:  He is like a man which built an house, and digged deep, and laid the foundation on a rock: and when the flood arose, the stream beat vehemently upon that house, and could not shake it: for it was founded upon a rock.

Doing this is what qualifies you to be among the brethren of Jesus.

Matthew 12:50: For whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother.

Luke 8:21: And he answered and said unto them, My mother and my brethren are these which hear the word of God, and do it.

It is by doing this, that your wellbeing and wellness on this side of heaven and eternity can be guaranteed.

Luke 11:27-28. ¶And it came to pass, as he spake these things, a certain woman of the company lifted up her voice, and said unto him, Blessed is the womb that bare thee, and the paps which thou hast sucked. But he said, Yea rather, blessed arethey that hear the word of God, and keep it.

Matthew 7:21-23. Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.

However, it is very very unfortunate that majority of the so called believers of today, drop the wisdom of God and choose their carnal and sensual wisdom in doing things. No marvel, they easily fall a prey into the snare and wiles of the devil and lost Christian virtues.
They are not humble or lowly like Jesus. They pursue vain glory and are wise in their own conceits.
Dearly beloved, for believers of all ages and you in particular to avoid this  shameful and degrading situation. See what the blessed Holy Spirit says and apply your heart to doing them.

Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

Philippians 2:3-5. Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

1 Corinthians 3:18: Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise.

James 3:13-17. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

1 Corinthians 1:20-24. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom: But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness; But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

1 Corinthians 2:6-8. 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: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

1 Corinthians 3:19. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.

Dearly beloved, do not be wise in your own conceit. Apply your heart to doing what the scriptures says at all times in taking every decision. Then you shall discover that, the same way our Lord did not fall into temptations and had unprecedented record of success, so you to shall experience here and hereafter in Jesus name.
Remember, by  redemption  you have joined the company of the wise, so continue to behave wisely.  The good Lord shall help you in Jesus name.

Proverbs 19:20. Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

Matthew 7:24-27. Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

THE  PATHWAY TO GODLY WISDOM FOR. BELIEVERS OF ALL AGES, ESPECIALLY  YOU, ACCORDING TO ROMANS CHAPTER TWELVE VERSE SIXTEEN
Friend, glory to God you are a wise person who have chosen to behave wisely.

Proverbs 9:12. If thou be wise, thou shalt be wise for thyself: but if thou scornest, thou alone shalt bear it.

It is your being wise that made you to be among the companies of the few believers  who know the reality of this perilous time. The end time is here and the rapture is dawning.

Proverbs 13:20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise:but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.

Remember the global church of Christ falls into two categories. The wise and the foolish virgins. Where do you belong to? You need not be presumptuous, but sincerely examine yourself based on the reality of the  scriptures of truth.

2 Corinthians 13:5 Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?

See  what the scriptures says.

Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits.

If you do not have the mind of Christ. If you are pursuing vain glory and high things at all cost. If you are not meek and lowly like Christ.  If you are living by earthly, sensual and devilish wisdom of this world. Then certainly, such a person is among the foolish virgins. Check up yourself.
Are you really preparing for the rapture and eternity with God, that can come your way, before the end of today?  Are you really biblically born again ? Is your name in the book of life? Are you living with eternity in view? Do you do all things from the point of what the scriptures says? Have you done your restitutions like Zacchaeus?
If the trumpet sound now, will you go with the redeemed? God forbid, should you die now, just like more than one hundred and fifty thousand people shall die today alone, will you go to heaven or  drop into eternal flames?  Are you part of the glorious church or the graceless church?
Be very sincere to answer all these questions discreetly.  It is when you have yes, yes , as answer that, you fall among the wise virgins that shall be part of the rapture or live eternally with God. I earnestly pray for you that, this shall be your portion. However, the buck stops with you.
You hold the key to your eternal wellness and wellbeing. This is why you should join the companies of the wise virgins now, tomorrow might be too late.

Matthew 25:1-13. Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And five of them were wise, and five were foolish. They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them: But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps. While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept. And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out. But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves. And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut. Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Deuteronomy 32:29 O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!

Colossians 3:1-4. If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

Friend, ask yourself, if you gain the world that you are tirelessly pursuing and give little thought to eternity, what shall happen to your undying eternal soul, twenty, forty or hundred years from today. Please be wise and consider your latter end. Don’t be wise in your own conceit.

Proverbs 19:20. Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.

Matthew 16:26. For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?

Romans 12:16. Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits

May the Lord help you to be wise unto salvation in Jesus name.
