Wisdom. The definition of wisdom is “having experience, knowledge, and good judgment.” I don’t know about you, but that sounds like a characteristic I would love to have. Proverbs 9:10 explains that “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” The verse has given us what I would like to call a road map on how to achieve wisdom.
The verse states that we are to first, fear the Lord. To me, fearing the Lord means obeying His commands and knowing that His word is true. His word discusses the results of disobedience. Romans 5:19 states ” For as by the one man’s disobedience the many were made sinners, so by the one man’s obedience the many will be made righteous.” Secondly, the verse mentions that “the knowledge of the Holy One is insight.” When I hear this portion, I automatically think of the relationship we have with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is here to guide us through life and help us avoid situations that are not good for us through discernment/insight. John16: 13 states “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what He hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come..” Today, I encourage to seek spiritual wisdom which leads to knowledge about all things. Obey the Lord’s commands and ask the Holy Spirit for guidance and you will notice your wisdom meter increase.
God, thank you for today. You have blessed me with so many opportunities to be in your presence. Lord, I pray that while I am in your presence I will gain wisdom. I chose to obey your commands and receive discernment from the Holy Spirit that will guide me towards the application of the wisdom I receive. Lord, I want to take this time to listen to you … (takes some time to listen to his plans)
Peace, Love, Joy, and Abundant Blessings,
