The Lord Gives Wisdom

April 20, 2010 at 1:10 pm | Posted in Wisdom | Leave a comment

Proverbs 2 “The LORD gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”  I often forget this; I live life as though wisdom could be attained by my own efforts.  Certainly the text says, “if you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasure,” but it first says, “If you cry for discernment and lift your voice for understanding ….”  All my efforts are nothing if I don’t cry out to God realizing true wisdom only comes from him.  The promises for those who do that are amazing: He holds victory for them; he guards, protects and shields their way; he saves them from wicked men; he saves them from adulterous and seductive women.  Those are the promises I want to live.  The key is working hard to seek wisdom coupled with crying to God because only he gives it.  God grant me that kind of wisdom.
