“And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” – Job 28:28
Wisdom is the correct application of knowledge or information that comes through understanding. Knowledge delivers the provision or promise, understanding helps you to see the reality of that provision while wisdom helps you to experience the benefits of the provision. Wisdom is invaluable and indispensable in the life of every believer.
There is the wisdom of man or earthly wisdom and there is wisdom from above; that is the wisdom of God. The true wisdom from God is the one to which I refer here. First, let us dig deep into the Bible to learn about wisdom, its meaning and characteristics. When we truly gain this knowledge, we will value wisdom as we ought, seek it with all our hearts and use it for the betterment of our lives and destinies.
The first thing to know is that the fear of God constitutes wisdom. Being guided by God’s consciousness and reverence births and develops true wisdom in man. Job 28:28 affirms this, “And unto man he said, Behold the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom: and to depart from evil is understanding.” The second thing to know is that experience augments or adds to wisdom. The Bible buttresses this in Job 32:7, “I said, Days should speak, and multitude of years should teach wisdom.” Third, the Bible affirms that wisdom should be the believer’s supreme acquisition. Proverbs 4:7 says, “Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.” Fourth, divine wisdom enables the believer to understand divine truth. In Hosea 14:9, the Bible asks, “Who is wise, and he shall understand these things? Prudent, and he shall know them? For the ways of the LORD are right, and the just shall walk in them: but the transgressors shall fall therein.”
Fifth, wisdom helps the believer to lay an immovable foundation. In Matthew 7:24 Jesus said, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, will liken him unto a wise man which builteth his house on upon a rock.” Beloved, get wisdom; it is the principal thing.
