“Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom” (Proverbs 4:7).
Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria
God wants us to know Him better. He wants us to know what to do in every situation. He wants us to have His wisdom so we can live the abundant life He has prepared for us. Wisdom is simply knowing the mind of God about a particular thing. It’s found in the Word of God. Proverbs says that when we reverence and honor the Lord, it opens the door to wisdom in our life. God’s wisdom is not like earthly wisdom. In other words, God’s wisdom won’t always make sense to your natural mind. For instance, the world’s wisdom says in order to increase, keep what you have. God’s wisdom says to give what you have and it shall be given back to you in greater measure. God’s wisdom is supreme. How do you “get” wisdom? First of all, James tells us simply to ask for it. And then open your heart to the Word of God; obey His commands and honor Him. As you are diligent to seek wisdom, you will find it. As you honor the Lord, He will honor you. He’ll pour out His favor on you, and you’ll live in wisdom and blessing all the days of your life.
