more on God's wisdom

There are many reasons for not letting it go.  First, my life verse aligns with it (James 1:5 says we can ask and receive wisdom from God).  Without the wisdom God alone can give we will be in much trouble similar to someone drowning as there is no one to help and no help in sight.

It is God’s wisdom that holds us tight when everything else slips away.  When our thinking comes to an end, God’s wisdom is endless, useful and the reality that God is in control.

James 3:17  NLT
But the wisdom from above is first of all pure. It is also peace loving, gentle at all times, and willing to yield to others. It is full of mercy and the fruit of good deeds. It shows no favoritism and is always sincere.

Take a few minutes today to take in God’s facts on wisdom!

Exodus 31:3  NLT
I have filled him with the Spirit of God, giving him great wisdom, ability, and expertise in all kinds of crafts.

Wisdom goes far beyond knowledge.  It also about the walk, the talk and the actions of our lives.  Skill is to be tied to God.

1 Corinthians 1:24  NLT
But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God.

Christ is the older of and the essence of all wisdom.

Ephesians 1:17  NLT
asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God.

Again, ask God for wisdom.  Enough said.

James 3:15  NLT
For jealousy and selfishness are not God’s kind of wisdom. Such things are earthly, unspiritual, and demonic.

The opposite of God’s wisdom is opposed to God.

Psalm 90:12  NLT
Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom.

Psalm 111:10  NLT
Fear of the Lord is the foundation of true wisdom. All who obey his commandments will grow in wisdom. Praise him forever!

Proverbs 2:6  NLT
For the Lord grants wisdom! From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 8:11  NLT
For wisdom is far more valuable than rubies. Nothing you desire can compare with it.

Titus 2:12  NLT
And we are instructed to turn from godless living and sinful pleasures. We should live in this evil world with wisdom, righteousness, and devotion to God,

Live it.
