How To Get Wisdom
How To Get Wisdom
Wisdom is something you can never get enough of.
Proverbs explains how wisdom can turn your whole LIFE around like it’s a kind of golden elixir that gives you special abilities.
Sounds like something we would all want, right?
P.S. I have started a series on my YouTube channel called ‘Testimonies of Titans’ that YOU can take part in HERE
1. What is wisdom?
Google defines wisdom as ‘the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment’.
This is true… But you don’t need to be at any ability or level to receive wisdom from God! That’s the beauty of it.
If you are not Dumbledore, you probably haven’t spent hundreds of years reading books, gathering experience, knowledge, and developing good judgment.
I define wisdom as ‘the ability to MAXIMIZE any situation to produce the best possible outcome in God’s eyes.’
2. How do we get wisdom?
There is a simple answer to this question and it tells us in the Bible.
James 1:5-6 says:
‘If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.’
Ask God for wisdom and you will get it. If you pray, ask God for wisdom every time you do.
BUT your faith should be in God alone. You must trust God and don’t doubt, believe in your heart that you will receive it!
Discipline also plays a vital role. All the wisdom in the world is pointless without the discipline to ACT.
Knowing what to do is one thing. But what’s the point, if you don’t do the thing?
Proverbs 1:2 says:
‘Their purpose is to teach people wisdom and discipline,’
3. What happens when you get wisdom?
Our soul makes up our personality, our thoughts, memories, ideas, emotions, and knowledge. Everything that makes us unique! But if we ask God for wisdom to also be included in that list, it changes everything!
Wisdom teaches us not to rely on the things we can’t rely on. Our emotions. Our thoughts. Because they often don’t make any sense anyway.
In the situations where we don’t trust ourselves, we can ask God for wisdom, so we can make the RIGHT decision.
I have found that when I ask God for wisdom, I just somehow get the ability and knowledge I need to move forward. This may be through important advice or learning from past mistakes.
Proverbs and Ecclesiastes are full of verses which talk about the benefits of wisdom:
Ecclesiastes 7:12 says:
‘Wisdom and money can get you almost anything, but only wisdom can save your life.’
Wisdom will protect you every day of your life!
It stops you from making massive mistakes and will SKYROCKET you in fulfilling your destiny and God’s purpose for your life!
‘How much better it is to get wisdom than gold! And to get understanding is to be chosen above silver.’
Faith in God comes from hearing truth about God, like by reading this article.
