Prophetic Words of Wisdom

Any word spoken over you that is NOT in alignment with the assignment of heaven is POWERLESS!


Hey friends,

I am so excited about Day 26! First and foremost, I want to say that this week will be A-mazing! This week is called Holy Week, and for good reason. We are approaching the day we commemorate the Resurrection! Speaking of, I heard an awesome message on Sunday. Allow me to share a snippet with you.

Christianity has been largely focused on the wrong side of Christ. Focusing on the pain, because we are looking for pain to make sense.

There is so much truth in this snippet. I know for me, I’ve always quoted that one part of the text which states “because Christ suffered you will also suffer”. However, we must remember that although Christ suffered, he didn’t remain in the phase of suffering. He resurrected! He made it through the suffering in order to save and give us hope. When Jesus resurrected, he displayed to the world that WE (The Church) STILL carry the throne of dominion!Partnering with our savior gives you access to the same dominion. Yes, you carry POWER!

*I got the Power…* (inserts happy dance)

Allow me to jump right to today’s scripture.

“An undeserved curse will be powerless to harm you. It may flutter over you like a bird, but it will find no place to land.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭26:2‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Yes, you read that correctly. Powerless! Any word spoken over you that is NOT in alignment with the assignment of heaven is POWERLESS! Today, walk with authority. Walk with boldness fully confident in this: He that began a good work in you will carry it on to completion (Philippians 1:6)!

Have a great day my friends!

Wisdom Seeking: Day 25

Happy Sunday! I love Sunday’s because it’s a day we spend worshipping, resting and fellowshipping… Because of this, I am making today’s post quick and to the point!

The topic: Integrity

Proverbs provides us with sooooooo much wisdom but this is by far is one gem that is often overlooked in the “church” community. When someone confides in you, do you reveal it to others? If the answer is yes, repent and ask God to be The Lord of your lips! We’ve all been there but we don’t have to all stay there…

If someone brings you a bone please believe they are also carrying the bone you gave to another person as well..

Don’t carry the bone! Even if you’re attempting to justify your stance in an argument.

“Don’t reveal another person’s secret just to prove a point in an argument, or you could be accused of being a gossip and gain a reputation for being one who betrays the confidence of a friend.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭25:9-10‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Wisdom Seeking Day 24

What is wisdom?


For clarity purposes, wisdom is identified as having experience, knowledge, and good judgement! We are guided by and directed by “good choices” and “bad choices”. Both determines the outcome of situations. If you are constantly making bad choices, ask God to give you wisdom. It’s no easy task, there are some who think they are operating in Wisdom, but are not operating in Godly Wisdom but Worldly Wisdom. Huge difference! Worldly Wisdom leads to worldly acceptance and approval whereas Godly Wisdom leads to righteousness that comes with heavenly favor.

There are times when we see someone operating with worldly wisdom and as Christians or followers of Christ, we think that it’s a “good” thing. Every good thing isn’t a God thing. So be mindful of that fact.

Today’s scripture provides clarity on the above:

“Don’t envy the wealth of the wicked or crave their company. For they’re obsessed with causing trouble and their conversations are corrupt. Wise people are builders— they build families, businesses, communities. And through intelligence and insight their enterprises are established and endure. Because of their skilled leadership the hearts of people are filled with the treasures of wisdom and the pleasures of spiritual wealth. Wisdom can make anyone into a mighty warrior, and revelation-knowledge increases strength.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭24:1-5‬ ‭TPT‬‬

It is very important to ask for clarity and insight regarding the text. I’ve learned to dive deeper, navigating away from “what I think” and taking the words in each scripture and really focusing on what the word(s) mean. Scripture tells us that our thoughts are not like God’s thoughts and our ways are not like his ways. Because of this, how we “think” can often deceive us. I encourage you, ask God for knowledge, wisdom AND understanding so that you can rightly divide the word of truth.

Scripture references:

Isaiah 55:8-9; 2 Timothy 2:15

Have a great day, On Purpose!

Wisdom Seeking: Day 23

A little discipline never hurt anyone…


Discipline is something that today’s society has drifted away from. We’ve adapted to a culture of freedom and choices, not really holding ANYONE accountable for their actions. Although I do believe there are creative ways to discipline, it is a healthy practice to enforce change.

Discipline is defined as the following:

  • A regimen that improves an outcome
  • Punishment
  • Branch of Instruction or learning

According to the text, discipline is recommended. In fact, the scripture states:

“Don’t withhold appropriate discipline from your child. Go ahead and punish him when he needs it. Don’t worry—it won’t kill him! A good spanking could be the very thing that teaches him a lifelong lesson!”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭23:13-14‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Discipline teaches us lifelong lessons….

Wisdom Seeking: Day 22

Did you read yesterday’s post? Omg, so enlightening…

I am still soaking in the wisdom from our lovely guest post written by Jasmine Duff. It was soooo good!


Today, grab a journal and really allow the words to penetrate in your heart. Here’s my favorite from Day 22:

“Laying your life down in tender surrender before the Lord will bring life, prosperity, and honor as your reward.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭22:4‬ ‭TPT‬‬

Isn’t that just amazing? Laying your life down, surrendering leads to life and prosperity while bringing honor to you as your reward. It’s amazing how simple yet direct the word of God is. We often look for breakthroughs around the four corners of the earth, never realizing every answer can be found in two places:

  • In The Word (Bible)
  • At The Feet of Jesus

I have learned so much during this proverbial study! It is always a great idea to go back and review wisdom, every season of your lives.

After reading Day 22, really dive into the whole notion of surrender. Surrender means to cease resistance, to abandon oneself, give up or hand over. When you surrender your life to God, you are no longer fighting righteousness. You are voluntarily giving up you, what you want or desire and handing your life over! In return, you’re obtaining LIFE! So we strive for life our way when God is saying there is so much more I can provide for you… Jesus! I am reminded of a song “I am not my own, to you I belong…I give myself, I give myself to you…”.

“Finding Your Way to Wisdom

Today’s post is one filled with so much wisdom and insight from the book of Proverbs, written by: Jasmine Duff

Jasmine Duff is a writer, speaker, and author at season26.com. She is a Birmingham, Alabama native with a heart for spreading the gospel and uplifting her community. Say hi on Instagram!

The word wisdom is often associated with grey hairs, troubles, and a collection of faith-filled experiences.

There’s a reason young people aren’t often counted among the wise.

They’re too unfocused and impatient.

Ready to get out and tackle the world with little regard to life’s instruction manual.

Wisdom is born through humility and endurance.

It comes to those who earnestly seek it by deciding to put God first.

The book of Proverbs is dedicated to wisdom. It describes her as a woman crying aloud in the streets, warning the foolish and complacent about the dangers of their ways. My favorite verse reads, “Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.”

Thinking of wisdom as a person reminds me that Christianity is all about building relationships. We are called to be the light of the world and show people Christ’s love through our actions. Wisdom bridges the gap between what you do and why. It’s the glue that holds your faith together when the rationales of life try to break you.

Wisdom is like the cool breeze of a summer storm; washing away your well-built veil of ignorance to expose a truth only God provides. Wisdom comes in and makes you feel exposed. The goal is to establish a new mindset so It demands your discipline and pushes you towards patience until you begin to see the benefits of living a life lead by God.

Finding wisdom can be pretty intimidating, but the Lord urges you to find understanding no matter what it costs. You may lose friendships, loved ones, situationships, jobs, and a few nights out on your road to wisdom. But do not be discouraged, those things were just apart of the baggage blocking your pace to peace and prosperity.

Here are three things you’ll need to sacrifice as you find your way to wisdom:

Your Pride– You cannot solve a problem until you first admit you have one.

Beyonce may take pride in big egos but God does not.

The longer you waste time trying to solve your own problems, the longer you miss out on the blessing of God’s favor. You are humble because you know God is in control so every single thing that happens to you WILL work out in your favor. You are humble because you’ve studied scripture and found verses/promises that combat your deepest fears. So the next time insecurity starts to make you feel impatient and you feel the need to make a plan to regain control, remember that God doesn’t need any help. He doesn’t tend to change your situation until he first sees a change in you.

Your Perspective- Proverbs 16:20 reads, “God blesses those who obey him; happy is the man who puts his trust in the Lord.” Life with Christ can often seem like a buzzkill. You have to give up some of your favorite habits, make new friends, and start going to church more. Change may seem dull at first you can’t expect new blessings to come from an old mindset. God isn’t concerned about making his commandments fit your lifestyle. He doesn’t offer a “Favor only” or half off weekend plan for obedience. You must condition your mind to seek out things that are pleasing to the Holy Spirit. The more you associate yourself with Christ the more you’ll begin to crave new things. But if you only look at it through the lense of what you’re missing you’ll never realize the true beauty of all you stand to gain.

Your plans- Remember, young people, tend to lack wisdom due to impatience. Proverbs teaches us that wisdom dwells with prudence, which means to govern yourself using reason and caution. Caution requires thought and patience, which means you may have to hold off on some of your ideas to see what God has in mind. It’s not that God’s plans are drastically different from yours, after all, you are his child and made in his image, he just typically has a different route to get you there. And if his plans to happen to be the complete opposite of what you’ve been praying for, trust that those desires weren’t good for you well being and God plans have even greater things in store. The key here is to develop a spirit of prudence. God doesn’t deliver blessings as fast as Amazon because he packs more quality into his products. He wants to make sure you can handle what you’re asking for because he’s already gone before you and knows what the challenges look like. A wise spirit trusts that God has not forsaken them and holds on during the tests that come with following the straight and narrow path. Sacrifice your plans to God and watch him blow your mind.

God isn’t going to beg you to develop a spirit of wisdom. It won’t happen easily and it’s probably going to take a long time. But God considers grey hair a crown of splendor, earned by those who chose to live righteously and made it a priority to seek wisdom. Learn from the elders before you and take refuge in the arms of God as your grey stands begin to sprout. God will never leave or forsake you, but you can only stand firmly by learning the wisdom of his words.

Wisdom Seeking: Day 20

Today, allow me to share with you all a response from one of my amazing twitter followers! I asked a question, what is your favorite Proverb and what does it mean to you?

Here’s the response:

Proverbs 2:6 – For Jehovah gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Wisdom is Christ Himself given to us by God through our experiences. We go through different experiences in life that we may not understand. For example, you may question why you didn’t get a specific job, what is your purpose, or why a certain person was placed in your life. The only person who knows the answer to these questions and all questions that you may ask is God. He desires to have a relationship with you for you to get to know Him better.

God has a way of speaking to us with His still, soft voice that we can only hear when we spend time with Him. Wisdom is like a lightbulb going on in your head at any given moment. God gives it freely to us as long as we ask for it. Open your being to His speaking and let Him make home in your heart. Only He knows your future and understands you better then you know yourself.  – Trisha Giscombe

That was so enlightening! Thank you Trisha for taking the time to respond. You’re awesome!

Have you read Day 20 yet? Omg! So eye opening…

“Gossips reveal secrets; don’t associate with those who talk too much.”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭20:19‬ ‭CEB‬‬

Have you ever interacted with a gossip? I have and I was totally ill equipped to handle everything that came with it. The proverbial wisdom in verse 19 states clear as day: Don’t associate with a gossip! I try really really hard to refrain from what is classified as gossip. While I haven’t always been mature in this capacity, I am now stronger and will reject any conversation that flows in the direction of gossip!

What about you? Are you attentive to “gossip”? Or do you reject it? Take a moral inventory of your life and your relationships. Rid yourself of any form of gossip. Even “innocent” gossip can lead to the ruins of another. Don’t participate in it.

Have a great day!
