Would you like to be granted wisdom like Solomon? Solomon was keenly aware that true wisdom began with his relationship with the Lord. It meant surrendering to the fact that God is a better executive over his life than he was. Solomon knew he had to let God Reign to be successful. Also, he had to train his ears to hear the Father. Yes, he had to find the mute button to his mind’s voice too! But the biggest take away we can learn from Solomon is his declaration that wisdom comes from the Lord.
For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. Proverbs 2:6
So how can you obtain it? The bible tells us that it is ours for the asking. Wisdom bids us to come and seek it in Proverbs 1:20-33.
Ask for it, seek it, value it, hear it, and apply it.
We need a willing heart and a spirit of receptiveness to its teachings. As we search for it, wisdom requires us to be engaged and found in the presence of God. Our time has to be spent hearing and meditating on God’s Word as well as diligently praying for God’s wisdom to be given to us. Most of all, we must treasure it and be willing to apply it to daily living.
WOW! That is quite the list but, be encouraged my friend. The benefits are numerous and sweet!!
In Proverbs 2, wisdom promises some of the following:
- Knowledge of the Lord
- God’s protection and guidance
- The Lord’s discernment and understanding
- Deliverance from evil
- Ability to walk out a righteous life
What is holding you back from adorning your life with wisdom? It is simply a choice. Be wise and heed to God’s ways or join folly and do life your own way.
Read Proverbs Chapters 1-3 and make a choice. As for me, I choose wisdom because I want a long and peaceful life, favor in the sight of the Lord, successful ventures, good health, prosperity, a fruitful life, and to follow God’s will.
I pray you want the same adornments.
