SCRIPTURE: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.” – Psalms 111:10.
Today, we are going to look at the signs of wisdom and how to obtain God’s wisdom. Every believer needs to know both.
The signs that a person has wisdom are as follows: (1) The ability to hold one’s tongue -Proverbs 29:11. (2) The ability to make good decisions – Isaiah 30:21 (3) The ability to impact wisdom to others -1 Kings 4:34. (4) The ability to lean on God in trials – Proverbs 3:5-6. (5) Ability to fight one’s and others’ battles – Psalm 46:10.
Having established the significance, signs and benefits of God’s wisdom, it is very important to learn how to obtain it from God.
First, to obtain wisdom from God, you should admit that you lack it and ask for it from God. In James 1:5, the Bible says, “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not, and it shall be given him.” Second, you should ask faithfully. James 1:6 says, “But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” Without faith, it is impossible to please God. Requests presented to God in faith will be granted because God honours faith. Third, to obtain wisdom from God, you must be a God-fearing person. Psalm 111:10 says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.” Fourth, you should be humble. The Psalmist affirms that the Lord lifts the humble and casts the wicked to the ground (Psalm 147:6). The word of God also says that God gives wisdom to the humble. Fifth, you should be prudent (Proverbs 8:12). Sixth, you should be peaceful and considerate (James 3:17). Seventh, you should know the word of God and live by it (2 Timothy 3:15). Eighth, you should know your Lord better (Colossians 2:2-3). Nineth, you should preach and practise God’s word (Colossians 3:16). Tenth, you should do your best to get wisdom.
Beloved, God’s wisdom can make one wise man more powerful than ten rulers in a city (Ecclesiastes 7:19). It also preserves the life of its possessor (Ecclesiastes 7:12).
- Father, give me the faith to obtain Your wisdom, in the name of Jesus.
- My Father, give me the humility to obtain and retain Your wisdom, in the name of Jesus.
- Powers that want to turn my wisdom to foolishness, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, give me the wisdom to become a solution provider in my generation, in the name of Jesus.
- As wisdom made Solomon and Daniel great, Father, let Your wisdom make me great, in the name of Jesus.
- Father, let Your wisdom strengthen and empower me, in the name of Jesus.
- O God, by Your mercy, let Your wisdom preserve and elongate my life, in the name of Jesus.
