Wisdom

Description

The journey of wisdom begins when we lay our lives humbly at the feet of the Lord and worship Him with abandon.

"She is wise and discerning, always looking out for the well-being of her players" (Proverbs 31:18).

We've already seen that the excellent coach is trustworthy, good, joyful, service-minded and a good steward, but this verse takes her personal excellence to a whole different level. She is wise and discerning! And in her wisdom, she works tirelessly for the good of those in her care. 

Having wisdom means one has an understanding of what is true, right, lasting or judicious. According to the Bible, all of the facets of wisdom get there beginnings in the Lord. 

In fact, Proverbs 8 tells us that wisdom was one of God's first works, and wisdom existed even before the world was created. Therefore, wisdom is God-inspired and god-sustained. And because wisdom flows from God, it must be an eternal attribute of God. So how can we get this God-wisdom? 

Proverbs 1:7 (NASB) says, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction." 

The journey of wisdom begins when we lay our lives humbly at the feet of the Lord and worship Him in awe, reverence, abandon, and with fear and trembling! The journey continues as we learn to stay there at His feet daily... worshipping and soaking in more of Him. 

Prayer

Lord, You are my source of wisdom. Let me remain humble, bowing at Your feet. Renew my mind and transform me from the inside out with what is true, right and lasting.  Let Your wisdom wash over me and saturate my soul with heart-knowledge of You.
