The Right Kind Of Wisdom

Exchanging Worldly Wisdom For Godly Wisdom

Ephesians 5:15-16 "Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil."

James1:5 "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you."

James 3:17 "But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere."

Proverbs 6:17 "How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!"

Proverbs 19:8 "The one who gets wisdom loves life; the one who cherishes understanding will soon prosper."

Matthew 7:24 "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock."

" “I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and power, you have made known to me what we asked of you, you have made known to us the dream of the king.” " Daniel 2:23

More Precious than Gold

Wisdom is precious

It can come from above

From the Lord to you

That is given in love

Wisdom is given

To both the old and the young

But when you lack wisdom

Best too, hold your tongue

What often happens

When one thinks their wise

Wise beyond reasoning

But there down fault

Is pride

Most people get stubborn

When they are not humble

And the wisdom they may have

Can cause them to stumble

If you get confused

Or are under stress

Praying can give you wisdom

So your stress becomes less

Remember you will never

Be as wise as God

Remember his ways are higher

And so is his thoughts

It is beneficial to be wise

To study and read

To truly be wise

It's God's word you will need

Follow the wisdom

Listen and obey

Let this wisdom be precious

Let it show you the way

If you use it correctly

Each and every day

Make sure you apply it

Or it may slip slowly away

There are not too many things in the world that many would perceive as something more precious than material items, or money. At least that is how it seems in this day in age. It seems as if everything revolves around money. Money is what gets you what you need, and what you want, so finding something out there that actually is better than the idea of having more money,

is hard to find.

If you are a believer though, so many great things happen to you when you follow God and his Holy word. It's as if doors just open up everywhere in your life, and suddenly you see things so differently than the way you had before. It's like you were blind before and now suddenly you can see. But the things that you realize when you obey God and simply Believe in him, seem petty and even dumb to those who do not believe.

As a strong believer I can name many things that are more precious than money. Such as Love, Faith, Instruction, Heaven, Following God, ext. One particular thing that stands out though is wisdom. In life wisdom often comes with old age. The older you get the wiser you become, at least in the aspect of life itself. But what about the wisdom that comes from God. I believe this kind of wisdom is different than just the normal worldly kind of wisdom. Both are beneficial to obtain but only one is truly special and worth putting in your effort to know.

So what exactly is the wisdom that comes from knowing and obeying God. Well if you do not know, I suggest you pray and ask God for yourself or simply open up your bible and start reading what God has to say. The bible is a huge composition of books, filled with so much knowledge and history, and examples. To gain Godly wisdom, the bible is an essential tool and asset to have.

The Word of God gives you access to a whole new life, a whole new way of thinking, it can align your ways with God's ways, and your thoughts with God's thoughts. Although, you will never be all knowing as God is... But even that is explained in his word.

Following God and staying on his path for you constantly takes prayer and studying. Wisdom does not ordinarily happen overnight, most of the time it takes time and concentration. Often it is learning from your past or the mistakes you made before. Wisdom is truly precious though, because when it comes from God, it gives you peace, it Armors you to fight off temptations against the enemy, and most importantly, it instructs you how to truly live a life worth living that is acceptable and pleasing to God.

"A closing thought, When you are of the world, all you need is worldly wisdom to get through your life on earth...But it takes Godly Wisdom to find the way to Heaven, to access eternal life through Christ."

Prayer For Today

Dear Heavenly Father,

I thank you today for the gift of wisdom. I thank you that you have sent us your Word, the bible, to teach me and instruct me on how to live a life that gives you glory and honor and is pleasing in your sight. Sometimes I may not fully understand it all, but I know that is where my faith in you comes in. You are an awesome God, you teach me how to love others, you teach me the true meaning of life, and everything I will ever need to know comes from following you and your instructions. I pray you will open my eyes even more to understanding all about who you are and your future plans for me. I also pray you open other's eyes, such as unbelievers, so that they may also find their way to you, through your Godly wisdom.

In Jesus Christ Name I Pray, Amen
