WISDOM FROM ABOVE
“Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts,
And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.”
The Bible is very clear about wisdom from God.
1. WISDOM IS FOUND THROUGH A DESIRE FOR TRUTH
God has put within every person and inner desire to find truth.
Even the most wicked of people have an inner desire for truth.
Jesus is that truth – thus wisdom begins with the acknowledgement of Jesus Christ as God’s son and our saviour.
People who leave the paths of truth, humility and justice – are always people who reject Christ and rebel against His commandments.
When this happens wisdom flees and folly reigns.
2. WISDOM COMES FROM ABOVE
Wisdom does not come from the machinations of the human mind. That is called reason. Wisdom comes from God – and is the revelation of His plan and purpose for your life.
Beware the self pronounced worldly wise person – who has piles of dust to support their claim.
True wisdom always looks at the eternal outcomes – as an essential component – of any venture in life.
3. WISDOM IS MADE KNOWN THROUGH YOUR SPIRIT
Real wisdom is a gut feeling.
An inner intuitiveness.
Godly wisdom always rests in the spirit of a godly person.
Godly people take time in God’s presence to let the thoughts of the “all wise God” settle within them.
It is only then that our renewed mind can begin to strategise as to how and when to bring God’s plan to fruition.
You can tell a person who carries the wisdom of God.
They have three star qualities.
FAITH – wisdom acts in faith
HOPE – wisdom hopes for the best
LOVE – wisdom loves above all else.
