BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Ezekiel 28 – 29; 2 Corinthians 12 – 13
Isaiah 11:2 mentions the seven spirits of the Lord: the spirit of the Lord, wisdom, understanding, counsel, might, knowledge and the fear of the Lord. When the seven spirits of Lord is operating in your life, excellence will manifest in all you do.
The Spirit of the Lord upon you gives you the anointing to do the works and will of the Lord at all times. The spirit of wisdom is a must if you want to rule as a sheep in the midst of wolves. David behaved himself wisely and he could not be overcome by King Saul. The Bible commands us to get wisdom (Proverbs 4.7).
The spirit of understanding will aid you to rightly interpret information. Life is a mystery and Jesus taught us a lot of things through parables. If you lack understanding, you would not be able to use the divine information given to you. The spirit of counsel gives you direction and helps you make the right choice. Proverbs 11:14 says, “Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety.”
The spirit of might is the divine strength to keep on in the midst of distress and persecutions. Ephesians 3:16 affirms, “That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man…”
The Spirit of knowledge is important for the believer because ignorance is a killer. What you know will save you from a world of troubles. For example, when you know your enemy, you will know how to behave around him but if you do not know, he will give you poison to eat and you will eat it and land in the grave.
The spirit fear of the Lord delivers you from sin. The fear of the Lord empowers you to put God first in all things. You would want to confirm and be very sure you are not offending God before taking any step. Daniel was the perfect example of a man with an excellent spirit. The gods of Babylon called him a god because his operations were beyond them. The same was on Jesus Christ. Pray these seven spirits into your life. You will beat the best and be the best.
