Thank you for returning this afternoon. Let us continue.
What is wisdom According to the Bible? This is so very important. After all, and I cannot say this enough, to wit: if there is anything 'needful' at this time in the history of 'man', AND, GOING FORWARD, it is - BIBLICAL WISDOM'. Where are YOU, Adam, Eve? The time is - NOW or NEVER. I believe that with all of my 'heart'. Amen. Amen.
Wisdom Defined In the Biblical sense, wisdom is the "ability to judge correctly and to follow the best course of action, based on knowledge and understanding" (Lockyer p. 1103). Wisdom means understanding the consequences of our actions and words before we act or speak. Wisdom means having the knowledge and understanding to recognize the right course of action and having the will and courage to follow it.
TALK ABOUT - 'THE COURAGE OF ONE'S 'BIBLICAL CONVICTIONS'!
We further learn that 'Wisdom' is, in fact, a divine gift that is granted by God whenever any believer asks. This is the clear teaching of James: audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
James 1:5 (ESV): 'If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him'.
Yet, sadly, how many ask? How many pray? Solomon asked for wisdom and it is this prayer that unlocked the riches of the world. We read in 1 Kings 3:8-13 (ESV):audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
'8 And your servant is in the midst of your people whom you have chosen, a great people, too many to be numbered or counted for multitude. 9 Give your servant therefore an understanding mind to govern your people, that I may discern between good and evil, for who is able to govern this your great people?” 10 It pleased the Lord that Solomon had asked this. 11 And God said to him, “Because you have asked this, and have not asked for yourself long life or riches or the life of your enemies, but have asked for yourself understanding to discern what is right, 12 behold, I now do according to your word. Behold, I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before you and none like you shall arise after you. 13 I give you also what you have not asked, both riches and honor.'
God is not partial. What He has done for others, He will do for each of us. [Romans 2:9-16]
audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html [See also Deuteronomy 33:27; Hebrews 13:8]
Proverbs 1:7 (ESV) tells us, audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.”
The biblical definition of wisdom is the fear of the Lord as that’s where it begins and God is the source. The earthly wisdom is really no wisdom at all because “the wisdom of this world is folly with God” (1 Corinthians 3:19). Therefore: audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
In this is the answer to the second part of the question: "how does one acquire wisdom?" In a 'nutshell', 'through humility' before the Living God.
The biblical answer is found in all of the Scriptures that we have cited and many more. We can survey all of the pool of biblical insights about wisdom and siphon the precious nectar of truth about how to get wisdom:
1. Recognize that true wisdom is something that we need. Like grace, wisdom is something God offers and which we must receive. It is a gift.
2. In 'contrition' and 'humility', repent of your claim on wisdom. Turn to God. By faith, believe in God and in his only begotten Son Jesus Christ. Ask him for wisdom.
3. Receive the 'anointing' of wisdom even as Joshua received wisdom after Moses laid his hand upon him. Recognize that wisdom is a spiritual act. It has very little to do with cognitive development or education. It has everything to do with the anointing of God to see what is right and what is wrong, to know what to do and when to do it. You and I both know that wisdom does not come along with a sheepskin of a diploma or certification. Cry out to God, and he will answer you and anoint you with wisdom.
For, as it is written, James 1:17 'Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.'
4. Use wisdom for the glory of God and for the good of others. If wisdom is not exercised then wisdom ceases to be. However, the very nature of wisdom instructs your heart to use your insights, your discernment, your discretion, your vision to fulfill God's will and to demonstrate how to love your neighbor.
On our next post, on March 21, 2020, we will find out that 'wisdom' is a 'bountiful blessing'. Thank you for returning. Amen. Amen.
