Wisdom Where Do We Get It

Where do we get our wisdom and knowledge from, is it from the world or from God and His Word? We can have all the degrees we want but without the Word of God our view will be the same as the worlds view and teachings which are not in alignment with the Word of God and if we are a child of God we should want His teachings and wisdom so we can deal with the things of this world. The reason the world and God are so opposite is because of man. Anytime man or (woman) is responsible to answer, to respond, to discern or to teach and does it without seeking the Lord 1st for understanding is always giving his or her interpretation or point of view but if we are the creation and God is the Creator how can we then say that what the Creator has said in His word is wrong and our knowledge and understanding is better or more intelligent than the Creator’s spoken word. We need to be very careful that we are allowing the Holy Spirit to impart God’s wisdom into us and that can only be done when we stay in His Word and through His teachings. Proverbs is called the Book of Wisdom in the Bible and in Proverbs 3:5-6 it says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Also Proverbs 9:10-12 says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For by Me your days will be multiplied, And years of life will be added to you. If you are wise, you are wise for yourself, And if you scoff, you will bear it alone.” So let us not get caught up with the ways of the world but let us be caught up with the Word and be filled so that we will have the wisdom, knowledge and understanding that God originally intended through His Son Jesus Christ Who was the Word in the flesh Who came down from His heavenly throne to show us the Way!!! God Bless and stay in the Word and be filled.
