Proverbs 1:7 and James 1:5-6
There are two kinds of wisdom; which will you choose?
1. Earthy, sensual, demonic based on envy and selfishness. James 3:15-16
2. First pure, peaceable, gentle willing to yield; full of mercy and good fruits without partiality and without hypocrisy. James 3:17
When we ask GOD for wisdom; we can’t ask selfishly and expect GOD to give us heavenly wisdom. We can’t ask without faith and expect to receive real wisdom. As Solomon wrote in the Proverbs; “the fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge.” GOD knew then and GOD knows now that we need HIS wisdom to get through the trials of life. We learn to stop doubting when we ask GOD for wisdom to handle our problems that are too big for us. GOD is our DAD; HE will not deny us or turn us away. HE sees to it that we have what we need; HE will help us; all we need to do is have faith and ask. Once we ask believe that we have it. GOD is not a man that HE will lie to us; HE has no need to repent; Numbers 23:19. Becoming wise does not happen overnight. It’s hard to become wise when we’re struggling with maturity in a lot of areas of our life but wisdom is a quality GOD has promised in HIS Word to give us. Trust HIM day by day and situation by situation. Watch your wisdom grow.
