Wise Wisdom

At times, we stay up all night with our mind whirling with issues that need a wise solution (Ecclesiastes 2:23). Solomon, the wisest man in the world, realized that following the world’s wisdom is like following the wind (Ecclesiastes 1:17). He pursued God’s wisdom instead. God’s wisdom is the opposite of the world’s wisdom, and it often takes faith to walk in it.

The Apostle Paul tells us that the rationale of this world is futile. He advises us, when directed by God’s Spirit, to dare to be unwise in certain temporal matters. This way we may truly become wise in eternal matters (1 Corinthians 3:18-20). Heavenly wisdom is not tainted by the world. It is pure, serene, tender, steadfast, sincere, sensible and full of mercy and the fruit of God’s Spirit (James 3:17).

So many people miss the opportunity in their life to come to Christ, because they are so dependent on the wisdom of the world, that they miss the simplicity of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 2:21). Jesus Christ became the wisdom of God for us (1 Corinthians 2:24, 30). An intimate, personal relationship with the Son of God gives us wisdom of which unbelievers have no concept.

Mankind throughout the ages spent countless generations attempting to figure out the meaning and origin of life. All along, the answers to mankind’s most perplexing issues are already described and answered in God’s Word. God reveals His deep wisdom to anyone who seeks Him with all of his or her heart (1 Corinthians 2:10; Jeremiah 29:13)

Prayer:
Father God, Your wisdom instructs us to consider more than what meets the human eye. You want us to read between the lines, to think outside of the box and to envision Your reality instead of what we see in human terms. What we can see is merely temporal and earthly, tied to this finite world. That which is discerned only by Your Holy Spirit is eternal and lasting (2 Corinthians 4:18).

Thought for the Day:
God gives us His wisdom through natural events (Romans 1:19,20), the miracle of His Son (Luke 10:22; Galatians 1:16), His written Word and personal revelation, which He only gives to authentic Christians.

  1. Amen. I pray that others would examine the simple truths in Scripture and receive the gift of eternal life. There is nothing greater than knowing the King Jesus Christ. Keep spreading His Word to the ends of the Earth!
