Proverbs 4:7 King James Version (KJV)): “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore, get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.”
Dictionary: Wisdom – ˈwɪzdəm/ noun – the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgement; the quality of being wise.
“listen to his words of wisdom”
In the New American Standard Bible, it is written in Proverbs 4: 6-8
“Do not forsake her, and she will guard you; Love her, and she will watch over you.
The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom; And with all your acquiring,
Prize her, and she will exalt you; She will honor you if you embrace her.”
Now when we back track to verse 1: “Hear, O sons, the instruction of a father, And give attention that you may gain understanding.”
We all desire these qualities, Wisdom, knowledge and understanding. How then can one understand if they do not pay attention to the father’s instruction?
We should use discernment when we are confronted with a matter, this discernment comes through the knowledge attained over the years since we have the collective information and awareness thereof. Wisdom is the application of knowledge.
We know that knowledge is power! There is no time for the power outage, stay connected to the source of all power, which to the believer and follower of Christ is prayer!
There are certain relationships, decisions made without Wisdom from God. When we consult God then we are using Wisdom, although there are those persons who think that they have it all together and that they know it all, and do not need to consult God about anything, all these are still limiting.
Simple trust and hearty obedience!
Psalm 25: 1 In you, LORD my God, I put my trust.
Say it out loud each day! – Here I am God, I am Yours, and I follow Your direction and Wisdom today!
