Proverbs 1:7 - The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Wisdom according to Webster dictionary is knowledge that is gained by having many experiences in life. The natural ability to understand things that most other people cannot understand. Knowledge of what is proper or reasonable : good sense or judgment.
Biblical Wisdom=The fear of the Lord. That is where the source of true wisdom begins.
Many today seek and desire wisdom, but not God's wisdom. They give it their all to obtain the wisdom of the world and puts forth little to no effort in obtaining the wisdom of God.
Oh, the unnecessary pain, trouble, confusion and disappointments and eventual horror that they will be experienced by those who choose to place the wisdom of the world over God's wisdom in their lives.
Earthly wisdom is really no wisdom at all according to God. God calls it "folly".
God' Word declares this concerning the world's wisdom in 1 Corinthians 3:19- For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God’s sight.
True wisdom is found in God alone. If you lack wisdom, ask God.
Do you truly want true wisdom? Well, it starts and ends with the fear of God. Not fear in the sense of emotional distress, danger or terror, but fear (respect), a deep abiding, holy, reverence for God and His Word that is written in His bible.
James 1:5- “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.
The one who fears the Lord will say and know that what is spoken in Isaiah 55:8-9 is the path to true wisdom.
Let's listen to God speak-.For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”declares the Lord. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
God is higher than us and His ways are higher than ours too. Only a fool, one who despises wisdom and instruction will view God as low and self as high.
We can only continue to grow in wisdom as we continue respect, honor and reverence God, study and obey God's Word, pray and follow the leading of His Holy Spirit.
Remember, fools despise wisdom and instructions.
Do you truly want the wisdom of God? Well, my plea to you on today is to seek and ask God for He is waiting to hear from you.
God bless and I love you all.
