Wisdom and Knowledge


"Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. For the LORD grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding." - Proverbs 2:2-3, 6

What a difference wisdom and understanding can make. How many times have you moved forward with a task, new job, or relationship, and found only disaster because you did not seek God for insight? Solomon knew about the value of God's wisdom more than any man that ever lived. He was asked by God to request anything that he wanted and what did he ask for? Money? A long life? Fame? No, he asked for wisdom. He knew that with wisdom everything else in life would fall into place.

Solomon then asks us to do the same. He writes, "Seek wisdom and understanding". And where should we seek? Solomon writes, "The Lord grants wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding."

Let us be wise, by seeking His wisdom, knowledge and understanding. They are gifts, given freed by the Lord. Let us seek them today.

Father, I cannot make it without Your guidance. Give me the wisdom, knowledge and understanding that I so desperately need. Amen.
