In this post, we will be looking at some bible verses about wisdom that will enlighten your mind and spirit. Wisdom is an important part of our everyday lives. We need wisdom to do the right things at the right time. We need it to ascertain what is right and what is wrong. In fact, it is this kind of wisdom that will lead us on the right path and bring us to a truly successful life.
So if you are seeking wisdom, the bible tells us how to go about it.
If any of you needs wisdom, you should ask God for it. He is generous and enjoys giving to all people, so he will give you wisdom. – James 1:5
Therefore, if we ever lack wisdom, you simply ask God for it and He will give it to you, for He is a good God who gives good gifts to all His children. Of all the gifts of God, wisdom is at the top of the list of the most important ones. Wisdom is the key principle thing that guides us in all our doings in life.
So as Christians, we should seek wisdom first, for it is more valuable than money, fame, status, or fortune. Without the wisdom to help us use them wisely, all these things will not only cause us to be corrupted but may end up ruining our lives. When used with wisdom, they will blossom into great blessings not just for us, but for others around us.
Remember, God gave King Solomon an open cheque to ask for anything he wanted but Solomon only asked for two things, Wisdom & Knowledge. As a result, God gave him everything else in addition to wisdom and knowledge – 2 Chronicles 1: 10-12.
Let us meditate on God’s words, for they contain the seeds of supernatural wisdom that will be planted in our hearts and that will spring forth whenever we need them. We will then know the right thing to do so that God can use us to accomplish great things.
This list of Bible Verses about Wisdom is meant to help you realize the importance of wisdom in our lives, as well as how God’s Word and Spirit are both there to guide us in everything that we do always.
