Wisdom is a God given gift, but He only gives it to those who earnestly seek it. God offered Solomon anything he wanted, but all Solomon wanted was wisdom. Why is that? Because Solomon knew he had a great job to do. Instead of trying to figure it out on his own, he needed God to give him the wisdom for how to do it. How many people now and days would have asked for the same thing? The roles have changed quite a bit. Most people ask God for what they want and not what they need. Then again, some people don’t ask because they think they already know everything. No matter how old or young you are, you must always have a teachable spirit.
In the book of Deuteronomy Moses said that a reputation for wisdom comes by obeying God’s word. You gain wisdom through a constant process of growing. Growing closer to God. Studying his word. Spending time in prayer. When you are on the pathway to wisdom, you discover that true wisdom is God’s and that you cannot create it by your own efforts. You cannot solve your problems with the same thinking you used when you created them. True wisdom goes beyond amassing knowledge; it is applying knowledge in a life changing way. Wisdom is the quality of being wise. It is both the ability to discern what is best and the strength of character to act upon that knowledge. You should not ask God to do for you what He wants to do through you. Instead you should ask God to give you the wisdom to know what to do and the courage to follow through on it. Seek wisdom today and watch how quickly your life changes!
“Getting wisdom is the wisest thing you can do! And whatever else you do, develop good judgment. If you prize wisdom, she will make you great. Embrace her, and she will honor you.” Proverbs 4:7-8 NLT
“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.” James 1:5 NIV
