WHY NOT SEEK FOR DIVINE WISDOM❓
Memory Verse :
Knowledge and wisdom appear similar but they really are not. Knowledge means having information and understanding about a subject. This is acquired by self-study or at school. However, wisdom is the ability to make sensible decisions or Judgement through spiritual insight, hindsight or foresight; and it is acquired through the help of the Holy spirit.
In the Old Testament, Good gave wisdom to Solomon. It does not mean that Solomon knew everything in the world. Whenever Solomon had a problem, he would have wisdom to solve the problem. For instance, One day, two prostitutes came to King Solomon seeking justice. They live in the same house. One of them had a baby three days after the other ones baby was born. One of them, however, killed her baby by mistake. She exchanged the dead baby with the other woman’s baby and pretended to be innocent. Both were claiming the living baby, they went to King Solomon for a real mother of the living baby (1 Kings 3:16-28). King Solomon solved this problem with wisdom, though he did not have scientific knowledge such as the DNA test of today.
This New Year 2020, more than anything else, we need wisdom for daily living. It should top the list of our prayer requests. “For wisdom is better than rubies. And all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her”. And since the Lord is generous and has promised to give wisdom to those who ask of it (James 1:5), it behooves us to come to the Lord today with a heart in search for wisdom. Dr. D.W. Kenyon said that Christian countries in Europe have produced a great number of inventions and discoveries and have become rich because their people believed in Jesus and acquired wisdom. Since Jesus is the wisdom of God, growing in intimacy with Him is a sure access route to wisdom for daily victory.
CONTROLLING THOUGHTS :
Wisdom is the rightful application of knowledge and understanding, wisdom is attained through an intimate relationship with Jesus.
Lord, grant me knowledge, understanding, and wisdom, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
BIBLE READING FOR THE YEAR :
