Growing In Wisdom – Part 1
Scripture Reference: “For God gives wisdom and knowledge and joy to a man who is good in His sight; but to the sinner, He gives the work of gathering and collecting, that he may give to him who is good before God. – Ecclesiastes 2:26
There are practical steps you can take from now on and will help you grow in wisdom. The first thing is to have a test for wisdom. The first thing is to HAVE A THIRST FOR WISDOM. You must have a deep hunger for it. The scripture says, “Those who hunger and taste for righteousness will be filled.” It takes an empty vessel to enjoy divine feelings. Sometimes we need to pray for hunger. Without hunger, there would not be any pursuit.
And the second thing is to ASK GOD. We have been admonished in scriptures to ask for wisdom. Let your hunger lead you to ask God for His wisdom. “Ask, and it shall be given to you. Seek, and you shall find. Knock and the door shall be open to you. “Ask today. Don’t confuse education with wisdom. Don’t think that age equals wisdom. No sir/ma! You can be a professor and live in foolishness. You can also be growing old and not growing up. You must acknowledge that you need God’s wisdom before asking can make meaning.
Daily digest: Wisdom is not attained by years, but by ability.
Prayer: Your Word says that if we ask for the wisdom You will give it freely and without limit (James 1:5). I understand that even in my wisest moment, it is nothing compared to Your most foolish thought (1 Corinthians 1:25, Proverbs 3:7). My perspective has only gone as far as I could see. Jesus, You open my eyes to see from Your perspective.
