Years ago I heard Dr. Roger Andrus say: “Wisdom is getting to know things from God’s point of view.” An excellent statement!

In the Book of Wisdom, Proverbs, the “Wise man” places statement after statement indicative of the wisdom that originates from the heart of God.

2:1 “My son, if you will receive my words and treasure my commandments within you,

2:2 make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding;

2:3 for if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding;

2:4 if you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures;

2:5 then you will discern the fear of the Lord and discover the knowledge of God.

2:6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

2:7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,

2:8 Guarding the paths of justice, and He preserves the way of His godly ones.

2:9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice and equity and every good course.

2:10 For wisdom will enter your heart and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul;”

There is more to follow. More of what we need and I trust, desire. There is no substitute for the wisdom that comes from God. It is food for our thinking and guidance for our direction. God alone can give us wisdom. His WORD is “a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path.” (Psalm 119:105)
