I command every evil attached to any area of my life blocking my joy and testimonies come out NOW IN JESUS MIGHTY NAME.

Be a prophet to 2 persons -

--- I decree and declare every invisible hand, chain and rope holding me from my blessings shall be cut off in Jesus mighty name.

I prophesy and declare in the name of Jesus Christ the blessings of God that make Rich without Sorrow comes to me now.

A good wife gets the husbands attention when she loves and demonstrates she is for him alone. If you show your love and commitment to Jesus Christ as His bride ( the church) he will shower more love on us.

ISA 60:1-22  and Matt 22:8-9

Wisdom for success ---

Isaiah 11:2. And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD;

Mark 6:2-3. And when the sabbath day was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were astonished, saying, From whence hath this man these things? and what wisdom is this which is given unto him, that even such mighty works are wrought by his hands?  Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James, and Joses, and of Juda, and Simon? and are not his sisters here with us? And they were offended at him.

Wisdom in you separates you from your peers.

Some of us have plans to succeed but don't know HOW to succeed.

To be successful requires a change of position and transformation.

Knowing what to do and the ability to do it at the appropriate time to succeed you need wisdom.

When Jesus was preaching to the multitudes and they were tired and hungry. Jesus had compassion on them and rather than send them away the bible said he himself knew what to do. That is wisdom.

Insight, foresight and hindsight - these are the enablements of wisdom.

Proverbs 4:5-9. Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth. 6. Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee. 7. Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 8. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. 9. She shall give to thine head an ornament of grace: a crown of glory shall she deliver to thee. 

Proverbs 4:7-8 Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding. 8. Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her. 

What is wisdom?

Then if a believer says he has wisdom will he not then fear God? And If you fear God then will you rob God of what belongs to him? - one of the few times that God cursed his own children was when they forgot his fear and robbed him - then tell me who can remove the curse and how can that person succeed? Malachi 3:9. Ye are cursed with a curse: for ye have robbed me, even this whole nation.

2 Chronicles 1:10-12. Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great? 11. And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king: 12. Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been   thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

What wisdom is this-----mark 6:2-3

ISA 11 - the seven spirits of God
