Wisdom: A Gift From God
Good day, my friends! I am so glad you are with me so we can consider the words that God has deposited in me for this time in our lives. The word that resonated in my heart and spirit is Wisdom. We hear that word often yet let us dive deeper in what that word truly refers to.
As I looked the definition of it, it states, “the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense and insight. Wow! When I read this, it took me back. Several elements are necessary to have in place to have in combination to produce the outcome of a wise decision.
So how we think, and act is the product of the knowledge and experience attained, and grasp of the matter at hand. When it comes to common sense, someone said, “it is not as common as it should be.” Good sense and sound judgment in practical manners are necessary to produce a positive outcome. In addition, insight is necessary to view the whole picture rather than a sliver of it.
I further found out a deeper definition of wisdom. It is associated with attributes such as unbiased judgment, compassion, experiential self-knowledge, self-transcendence and non-attachment, and virtues such as ethics and benevolence. It is a gift that gives us the capability to make the right choice or decision.
How can you find wisdom in a world filled with so much bombardment of information coming from every direction? With so many contradictory data, who can you turn to and trust? The answer is found in the book that have, is, and will be relevant regardless of time and history.
Wisdom is a treasure that those that search for it wholeheartedly will find it. It is internal desire that begins internally. Where do you start? By asking for it. The bible says in James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.”
Path to wisdom starts with the fear of God which means the reverence, honor, and respect to him. When you honor and respect God, you will do what He asks you to do because you trust His wisdom. He is the one who will give it to you. Wisdom is a virtue that isn’t innate but can only be acquired through experience. As you are experience life, He will guide you to make the right choices.
This is the compass that will direct you to wisdom in your journey. You will see, hear, and sense that you are heading in the right direction. He is your guide to discover the precious treasure. “Trust the Lord with all your heart, and lean not onto your own understanding: In all your ways acknowledge Him. And He will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Decisions and choices must be made in our lives that can lead us to worsen or improve our situation. Seek God first in counsel and meditate and listen to what He says. He will also direct you to wise men and women that will also speak into your life. Reading, observing, and practicing the word of God will bring us life, peace and joy.
Since this is such a deep topic, we will continue to talk about it next week. Let me know if this have encouraged your life. Please share with others that would like to be part of this community. I would love to hear from you and finding how we can pray for you!
Peace, Love, and Joy!
