Today is going to be good day because Jesus is in the house. 

We are going to have energy of 18 years old!

When you encounter the grace of God, your lives are transformed. 

Hesed wisdom. Lord i need lots and lots of hesed wisdom! 

Every single of the year is marked with what the Lord wants to speak and do in our lives. Expectant of the Lord’s move in our lives. 

Proverbs 10:20

The tongue of the righteous is choice silver;

The heart of the wicked is worth little.

The tongue of the righteous is weighty

The fool’s heart worth little

What comes out if u r a fool, worth little 

Proverbs 10:21

The lips of the righteous feed many,

But fools die for lack of wisdom.

The righteous are wise and shine

Proverbs 3:13

Happy is the man who finds wisdom,

And the man who gains understanding;

The Lord wants us to grow in wisdom because He wants us to be happy! 

He wants us happy! 

Wisdom will bring us long life! Long life and health makes us happy

Wisdom bring wealth, honour, pleasant, shalom peace. We are going to be a happy church! We are going to be happy people. 

When we walk in hesed wisdom, wealth, honor, peace, pleasant, shalom peace are ours. 

Psalms 107:43

Whoever is wise will observe these things,

And they will understand the lovingkindness of the Lord.

Knowledge and understanding 

Wisdom is from the Lord

Lovingkindness is hesed. 

Whoever is wise n has wisdom will understand the Lord’s hesed. 

There is wisdom in grace. The grace of wisdom. Wisdom and grace 

When we are wise we will know the heart and lovingkindness of our Lord. 

Observe these things. What are these things?

We will be happy because we will know the lovingkindness of our God. 

If you are going through a trial, a problem, it will not be forever. His hesed will be forever. 

Psalms 107:1-3

Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good!

For His mercy endures forever.

Let the redeemed of the Lord say so,

Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the enemy,

And gathered out of the lands,

From the east and from the west,

From the north and from the south.

The Lord bought them back out of bondage into His promised land. 

This Psalm started with giving thanks. 

You will walk out of here with thanksgiving in your heart in your mind and in your lips. 

Psalms 107:4-5

They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;

They found no city to dwell in.

Hungry and thirsty,

Their soul fainted in them.

Psalms 107:10-12

Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,

Bound in affliction and irons—

Because they rebelled against the words of God,

And despised the counsel of the Most High,

Therefore He brought down their heart with labor;

They fell down, and there was none to help.

Psalms 107:17-18

Fools, because of their transgression,

And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.

Their soul abhorred all manner of food,

And they drew near to the gates of death.

Psalms 107:23-27

Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business on great waters,

They see the works of the Lord,

And His wonders in the deep.

For He commands and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

They mount up to the heavens,

They go down again to the depths;

Their soul melts because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,

And are at their wits’ end.

4 types of people

  1. Lost their ways
  2. Lost their freedom
  3. Lost their health 
  4. Lost their hope

The Lord showed us 4 group of people who had suffered lost. 

  1. Those who lost their ways what did they do? They cried out to the Lord 
  2. They cried out to the Lord, He brought them out of their distresses
  3. They cried out to the Lord, He saved them in their distress
  4. He delivered them. 

In the year of hesed wisdom, the people cried out to the Lord. He delivered them out of all their troubles. 

In this year of hesed wisdom all we need to do is to cry out to the Lord. 

Even a new born can cry. 

In the year of hesed wisdom, it is crying out to the Lord and to know when you cry out, He not only hears, He delivers! 

He delivered them out of all their distresses. 

Is there any distress? One of the manifestation of hesed wisom is to cry out to the Lord. 

Even a baby can cry. 

All of us babes, can just cry out. 

It does not take a smart or intelligent person to cry out. Any baby any babes can cry out. 

When we cry out, we experience His delivering power. 

Such a simple revelation today that in the year of hesed wisdom, cry out like a babe. 

We can all cry out. 

Mature christians can cry out, one day old christians can also cry out. 

This year if you are waiting for your miracle, all you need to do, cry out. 

As you cry out, you see how the Lord deliver in mighty way. 

Psalms 107:4-5

They wandered in the wilderness in a desolate way;

They found no city to dwell in.

Hungry and thirsty,

Their soul fainted in them.

If you feel that you are lost and hungry, all you need to do is to cry out. 

Psalms 107:10-12

Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,

Bound in affliction and irons—

Because they rebelled against the words of God,

And despised the counsel of the Most High,

Therefore He brought down their heart with labor;

They fell down, and there was none to help.

All you need to do is to cry out. 

Psalms 107:17-18

Fools, because of their transgression,

And because of their iniquities, were afflicted.

Their soul abhorred all manner of food,

And they drew near to the gates of death.

Whatever you are going through, cry out. 

Psalms 107:23-27

Those who go down to the sea in ships,

Who do business on great waters,

They see the works of the Lord,

And His wonders in the deep.

For He commands and raises the stormy wind,

Which lifts up the waves of the sea.

They mount up to the heavens,

They go down again to the depths;

Their soul melts because of trouble.

They reel to and fro, and stagger like a drunken man,

And are at their wits’ end.

In the midst of your business, if there is trouble, cry out! 

In the year of hesed wisdom, one of the highest wisdom is just to cry out and know that the Lord hears you!

Testimony –

A brother shared that it was his folly. He went into a relationship out of his marriage. He had a sickness in the midst of the relationship 

When he had been unfaithful to his wife, he contracted sickness. The third party left him. He went back to his wife. His wife prayed with him. The Lord healed him. When he had lost his health and his relationship with his wife, he cried out to the Lord. The Lord heard him. They are now happily back together. 

It took him crying out in the moment of folly and despair. The Lord was gracious to him. The Lord restored his health his marriage his financial. Simply because he cried out to the Lord. 

You can cry out to the Lord everyday. You do not need to go through trial to do so. 

Hesed wisdom is to cry out knowing His lovingkindness endures forever. 

Testimony –

One of the GRC church who had brought someone (neighbour) who had lost their child 5 days after birth. They came to church. Pastor prayed for them for restoration. 

Now they have received the child 14 months later. They received this miracle child. Giving glory to God!

Whatever you are going through today, it does not take much for Him to move. 

It is about how good He is and how sure His salvation is. 

Many of us here will experience our breakthroughs. In the year of hesed wisdom, whoever is wise, has wisdom, will observe these things. 

Christ has been made unto us first wisdom from God! Christ is our wisdom! Whatever we are going through today, understanding come on us in a fresh way. Fresh revelation of His lovingkindness. His unmerited favour! The grace of God! 

We will understand the grace of God. Wisdom is understanding the grace of God. The grace of God is the highest wisdom of God. 

Mercy triumph over judgement. 

It is the highest form of wisdom. It is the grace of God. 

What are we observing, taking in today?

We are partaking receiving the grace of our God. 

Today whatever you are going through when you see Jesus who is grace Himself, that is the highest wisdom from God. 

Whatever we are going through today, we see Christ, grace Himself, wisdom comes in! Super abounding grace will come in. 

Whatever you need today, wisdom Himself is speaking to you. 

Wisdom is telling you

If you are going through something in your business, return to grace. Return to grace again. The grace of God. Mercy the highest wisdom of God. 

1 Chronicles 4:9-10

Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.

The Lord promises us long lives, riches, honor, pleasure and peace. 

If you feel your life has been marked by sorrow, see what Jabez did. Jabez cried out to the Lord! 

The Lord granted his request. 

Today, whatever we are going through today, lets cry out like Jabez! Today cry out to the Lord. Return to grace! Cry out to grace Himself! All we need to do today is to cry out. 

Babies if they can do nothing, there is one thing they can do, cry out. 

Jabez cried out. 

Every single one in Psalms 107, they cried out. Problems of their own making and not of their own making, they cried out. 

Today one of the hesed wisdom of God is to simply cry out. 

What we have heard today is a God who is good. Today we can simply cry out. I want you to see a good God. A God who would answer when you cry. Daddy God answers when we cry. 

See a good God.
