Wisdom and Understanding
By Rusty Wilson
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
In our relationship with God, it’s important for us to receive His wisdom and understanding of His Word, which comes from the revelation of our Teacher, the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit has been sent to us to teach us as we study God’s Word and give us clear understanding of His Word.
If we ever feel like we need wisdom to make a right decision on something we’re really not sure about, James 1:5 says, If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. As we see in this scripture, all we have to do is ask the Father in faith and He gives us wisdom liberally (bountifully; freely; largely; with munificence).
It’s important to desire and receive the wisdom and knowledge of God from His Word and we have them available to us all the time, we’ve just have to attend to His Word and incline our ear to His sayings (Proverbs 4:20) and we can receive every time we open up and study His Word.
Let’s be encouraged to keep our focus on God’s Word.
