When we experience the power of God’s wisdom, we not only begin to depend upon it to guide us, but it also enables us to show others how to find it. We begin to understand the truth and reality of this timeless Proverb: “How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver!” (Prov.16:16) You see, God’s wisdom does much more than make us wise; His wisdom conforms our character. “But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere.” (James 3:17) It is impossible to open up our heart to the wisdom of God and NOT be changed. His wisdom impresses His character upon our lives. The evidence of God’s wisdom in our lives is manifested in “the meekness of wisdom” not–the pride of our own knowledge. “Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic.” (James 3:13-15) All my years of pursuing the world’s wisdom resulted in attaining less wisdom than a single grain of sand when compared to the vast ocean-beds of God’s wisdom! And—I was fueled by the same selfish ambition that had driven me my entire life. I didn’t understand that I couldn’t possess God’s wisdom without changing my heart. You see, the evidence of God’s wisdom in our lives is found more in what we do than what we say. Pureness, gentleness, mercy and sincerity are taught through the sermon of our life as a result of the “meekness of wisdom” which we attain from God. If wisdom has not changed our lives, then it’s time to consider whether God has touched our heart. When He touches us, we are never the same again!
