I apologize for the air conditioning coming through during the recording of the devotional. The importance is, the message was still audible. ;-) Enjoy today's devotional along with today's scriptures on Wisdom. God bless you all.
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
How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! ~Proverbs 16:16
A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish son is the heaviness of his mother. ~Proverbs 10:1
Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times, and the strength of salvation; the fear of the Lord is His treasure. ~Isaiah, 33:6
Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers, and blessed is he who trusts in the Lord. The wise in heart are called discerning, and pleasant words promote instruction. ~Proverbs 16:20-21
Who is wise? Let him give heed to these things, and consider the loving kindness of the Lord.
For the report of your obedience has reached to all; therefore I am rejoicing over you, but I want you to be wise in what is good and innocent in what is evil. ~Romans 16:19
Those who are wise shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness like the stars forever and ever. ~Daniel 12:3
Let those who are wise understand these things. Let those who are discerning listen carefully. The paths of the Lord are true and right, and righteous people live by walking in them. But sinners stumble and fall along the way. ~Hosea 14:9
Love wisdom like a sister; make insight a beloved member of your family. ~Proverbs 7:4
The teaching of the wise is a fountain of life, to turn aside from the snares of death. Good understanding produces favor, but the way of the treacherous is hard. ~ Proverbs 13:14-15
"Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; love her, she will keep you. Wisdom is the principal thing, therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; she will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; a crown of glory she will deliver to you. Here, my son, and receive my sayings, and the years of your life will be man. I have taught you in the way of wisdom; I have led you in right paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hindered, and when you run, you will not stumble. Take firm hold of instruction, do not let go; keep her, for she is your life." ~Proverbs 4:5-13
"Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on a rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock."
"I, wisdom, dwell together with prudence; I possess knowledge and discretion."
He who keeps his command will experience nothing harmful; and a wise man's heart discerns both time and judgment. ~Ecclesiastes 8:5
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which non of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. ~1 Corinthians 2:6-8
Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish....But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then preachable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
