WISDOM

Let no one deceive himself. If anyone among you seems to be wise in this age, let him become a fool that he may become wise. For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, “He catches the wise in their own craftiness”; and again, “The Lord knows the thoughts of the wise, that they are futile.”(1 Corinthians 3:18‭-‬20).

LISTEN  :

“He sets on high those who are lowly, And those who mourn are lifted to safety. He frustrates the devices of the crafty, So that their hands cannot carry out their plans. He catches the wise in their own craftiness, And the counsel of the cunning comes quickly upon them. They meet with darkness in the daytime, And grope at noontime as in the night. But He saves the needy from the sword, From the mouth of the mighty, And from their hand. So the poor have hope, And injustice shuts her mouth. “Behold, happy is the man whom God corrects; Therefore do not despise the chastening of the Almighty. For He bruises, but He binds up; He wounds, but His hands make whole. He shall deliver you in six troubles, Yes, in seven no evil shall touch you. In famine He shall redeem you from death, And in war from the power of the sword. You shall be hidden from the scourge of the tongue, And you shall not be afraid of destruction when it comes. You shall laugh at destruction and famine, And you shall not be afraid of the beasts of the earth”.{Job 5:11‭-‬22}.

“For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel, not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of no effect. For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.” Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men. For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are  called.  But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God—and righteousness and sanctification and redemption— that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord .”(I Corinthians 1:17‭-‬31).

NOTE:

♧ “Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding”.(Proverbs 4:7).

♧”If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he  is  a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways”.(James 1:5‭-‬8).

♧”Now give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this great people of Yours?”(2 Chronicles 1:10).

●♧”Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are  done in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter envy and self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace”.[James 3:13‭-‬18].

PRINCIPLES of WISDOM

Proverbs 4:7 says,
“Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all of your getting get understanding”.
+Worry is a substitute for faith and prayer. Therefore trust in the Lord with all your heart and walk by faith, not by sight.
+What we appreciate increases in value, and what we depreciate decreases in value. Where love is given value is also given.
+ If we don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. Proverb 18:21 Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him..

+If we are not willing to change our behaviors when it’s necessary, then we are not ready for growth and maturation in spirit and in truth.
Hebrews 5:12 For when for the time you ought to be teachers, you have need that one teach you again…
+Problems will expose your fruit and character, and let the people around you know who you really are.
Matthew 12:33
Either make the tree good, and its fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and its fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by its fruit.
Luke 6:45
A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth that which is good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth that which is evil: for of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!

GODLY WISDOM

God gives us wisdom; out of His mouth cometh knowledge, and understanding, how we apply it to our life, or use it for His good or our own selfish ambitions is our choice.I would rather be a fool for God,than be wise for the devil; These three God-given attributes(wisdom, knowledge, & understanding) can take you places where the devil can’t, and they can  give you peace that surpasses all understanding, supernatural strength that only comes from God;like David killing goliath. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, but fools despise wisdom and instruction (Proverbs 1:7). The wise are known for their understanding, prudence, and discernment; knowledge is easy to him, that understandeth, and he that hath knowledge sparest words.

Understanding is a fountain of life to those who have it. A wise person sets his goals on heavenly gains, because Godly wisdom is from above, and is pure, peaceable, gentle and easy to be entreated; it’s also full of mercy, good fruits, its without partiality and without hypocrisy (James 3:17). However we speak wisdom among them that are perfect; yet not the wisdom of this age…but we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the ages unto our glory ( 1 Corinthians 2:6-7). Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom, and with all thy getting get understanding(Proverbs 4:5-7). Wisdom will  allow you to make good, sound judgment, it will protect and guide you.

People who reject the word of God, reject the wisdom that they would have gotten from the word (Jeremiah 8:9), however they would prefer to pay the  psychologist & behavioral analysis, who do not have God’s word in them, to fill you with the devil’s junk &  medication which makes them worse. The Bible says, as Christians we should be of the same mind one toward another, mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate, be not wise in your own opinion (Romans 12:16). The Holy scriptures is able to make us wise unto salvation (2 Timothy 3:15). We must never forget, that the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men (1 Corinthians 1:25) Godly wisdom tells you God’s thoughts are not like ours, neither are His ways so you don’t do anything without consulting God (Isaiah 55 :8-9). The Bible says, If  anyone lacks wisdom, let him ask God who gives it freely (James 1:5).

I bring all this to your attention to let you know that, when Jesus returns there will be no excuse, and you have made a choice to go to hell, rather than accept God’s gift of His only begotten Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17). But you can change all that. Just go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, then follow the instructions, it will be the best decision you ever make.

All praise, glory, honor, and thanks to God, our Eternal King, the invisible and only wise God, who uses me as a vessel to get His message out to His people, may His peace, grace, and mercies be yours now and forever. In Jesus Name, amen.
