Proverbs 2:6 says, “Wisdom covers and seeks to quench all troubles.” Proverbs 2:8 says, “She drives out evil things from her midst and huo hovers on highest.”
Wisdom is about being in control of our own lives. Being in control of our own lives will give us the peace that we seek. John 16:33 says, “I have told you all this so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation and trials but take heart because I have overcome the world.” Jesus became a human being to know what we are going through. He knew troubles that no one else could experience.
When we think of wisdom, we think of riches and money. Certainly wisdom has its rewards; rewards like money and good health. But our main rewards comes from having gained or achieving worldly wisdom, and no earthly treasure is even close to what the Lord has to offer in the future.
Ecclesiastes 8: 17-19disciple worries to avoid cakes of fool’s gold because he knows just whom it will benefit. A fool shows his annoyance at once, but a wise man withholds his anger; he will not offending in words of tongue or turning a cheek.
The greatest individual satisfaction in life does not come from increasing our financial collection or material things. Heaven’s greatest satisfaction in life is the satisfaction of the soul which comes from knowing the Lord.
We should gain world wisdom mostly for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. The wisdom of this world is shallow and will not last. Worldly wisdom is like sand; it will soon barren and become coarse, coarse like tar. No matter how much we sow in the wrong direction, we can never reap much harvest. There is so much preaching about wisdom in the word of God but there is very little wisdom in it. There is no sense of urgency or urgency about the need for Wisdom.
The devil and his kingdom have the intention of defeating the human race. He strategy is to deceive us into exchanging the only spiritual treasure of eternal life for a temporal treasure that will pass away. He conned Adam and Eve into eating the fruit of knowledge of good and evil. With the tree in the garden, he has still planted the seed of death with a spray foam machine.
Today we are surrounded by temptations and stumbling blocks that lead us into making immature judgments about each other. In James 3:15-18 it says, “For if anyone’s walk is haughty, he will be exalted in the Lord; but the world by wisdom knew not the road, but the foolish walked on it, and fell afterwards.” On the whole there is too much tempting in the world. The way to be an overcomer is to walk in the spirit.
The fruit of the spirit in the life of the believer is the joy of the Lord, peace that passes understanding, endurance, and so on. The gains of obedience are worth more than the gains from worldly wisdom.
So do not put your knowledge and earthly wisdom into practice in your daily life. Leave the things of God and His word alone and focus on obedience and faithfulness. The result you want to see will happen.
