The worst thing I can do is pretend to be wise. It grieves the Holy Spirit.
Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
Wisdom given by the word of man is not able to make effective change in the hearts of other men. Wisdom from above is unrelinquishing. It will not let go of us.
Your faith is what keeps you informed. Wisdom of the heart is a priceless gift from God.
‘Wear your heart on your sleeve’ is an expression of the world.
The wisdom from God is to guard your heart.
Proverbs 4:23 Watch over your heart with all diligence, For from it flow the springs of life.
The wisdom of man would advise you to gain wisdom from other men.
The wisdom of God advises to seek first the Kingdom, and all other things will be added to you.
Wisdom will elevate a person’s moral standards. A standard of morals is required to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
Ephesians 5:5 For of this you can be sure: No immoral, impure or greedy person–such a person is an idolater–has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.
The wisdom of man will advise you to ‘wash your hands’ before entering the ministry.
The wisdom of God allows you to wash your heart first.
Your appreciation of the discipline of God will bring forth more wisdom.
Proverbs 12:1 Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but whoever hates correction is stupid.
The wisdom of God is a wellspring of promise.
It will keep you as you make yourself available to receive.
You will find rest in the midst of trembling.
Proverbs 28:26 Those who trust in themselves are fools, but those who walk in wisdom are kept safe.
Wisdom from God places honor before a person’s name.
The Person of God wants to restore your precious name.
A good name is better than precious oil.
Allow Him to impress wisdom from above into your heart by presenting it clean before Him.
These words from my heart were given by power of the Holy Spirit. I’m not the giver of wisdom. My Father is. His name is Jehovah.
John 14:6 Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me…”
Proverbs chapter 8 is one of my favorite chapters in the bible. I love, love, love it! In it, the spirit of wisdom describes itself.
12 “I, Wisdom, live together with good judgment.
I know where to discover knowledge and discernment.
13 All who fear the Lord will hate evil.
Therefore, I hate pride and arrogance,
corruption and perverse speech.
14 Common sense and success belong to me.
Insight and strength are mine.
15 Because of me, kings reign,
and rulers make just decrees.
16 Rulers lead with my help,
and nobles make righteous judgments.
17 “I love all who love me.
Those who search will surely find me.
18 I have riches and honor,
as well as enduring wealth and justice.
19 My gifts are better than gold, even the purest gold,
my wages better than sterling silver!
20 I walk in righteousness,
in paths of justice.
21 Those who love me inherit wealth.
I will fill their treasuries.
22 “The Lord formed me from the beginning,
before he created anything else.
23 I was appointed in ages past,
at the very first, before the earth began.
24 I was born before the oceans were created,
before the springs bubbled forth their waters.
25 Before the mountains were formed,
before the hills, I was born—
26 before he had made the earth and fields
and the first handfuls of soil.
27 I was there when he established the heavens,
when he drew the horizon on the oceans.
28 I was there when he set the clouds above,
when he established springs deep in the earth.
29 I was there when he set the limits of the seas,
so they would not spread beyond their boundaries.
And when he marked off the earth’s foundations,
30 I was the architect at his side.
I was his constant delight,
rejoicing always in his presence.
31 And how happy I was with the world he created;
how I rejoiced with the human family!
