Proverbs 1: 1-6
Solomon was the wisest man who ever lived. His wisdom was a special gift from God, bestowed on him at his request. But knowledge alone was not enough….. it had to go along with knowing God and obedience to Him.
So we see that Solomon’s great desire was to pass onto his sons the wisdom that God had given to him. But the wisdom that he had would do no-one any good unless they were willing to receive it, to know it, and to perceive it…. in other words, take it and use it!
God’s wisdom gives prudence to the simple….. do you feel as though you don’t have enough brains to understand God’s truths? Have you ever asked Him to give you the wisdom you lack? James says that we don't have because we don’t ask! (James 1:5-6; 4: 2b). These things don’t just fall into our laps with no effort on our part….. there is no such thing as instant spirituality!
Salvation is instant, but God’s WISDOM only comes with a conscious effort on our part…. asking and seeking, and then obeying and doing it. The first steps in being wise are to listen and seek to increase one’s knowledge in the things of God….The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom! (Proverbs 9:10)
Take one step towards your God, He will take more than you’ve trod , Read His Word, obey its way, And walk in it from day to day.
If you don’t use it, you’ll lose it!!!
