The most vast source of wisdom in the world is within our grasp. When we are born again and the Holy Spirit dwells within us, we possess the tools of the wisdom of heaven. So, does our life evidence being filled with God’s wisdom? If not, why in the world not? I mean, there’s no question that God’s wisdom is superior to ours; after all, He created everything from nothing and created millions of forms of life–while man has been unable to create even one! Clearly He’s far more intelligent than we are and has ALL the answers to life’s questions. We would certainly maximize the effectiveness of everything we do by listening to His advice–right?! However, hearing God’s wisdom requires being close to Him; and being close to Him requires that we not embrace what crucified Him. Proverbs says: “My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you, making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding; yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints. Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you.” (Proverbs 2:1-11) How remarkable it is that The Creator of the universe offers us His wisdom! However, the degree to which we wish to possess the wisdom of God will be reflected in the degree to which we choose to walk closely to Him. Because He is Holy, He does not walk in sin and disobedience. If we wish to possess wisdom which will guard us, guide us and give us all the pleasant treasures our soul desires, we must seek God like treasure, listen to Him, and obey. It is God alone who is the Giver of His wisdom.
