"THE VALUE OF WISDOM"
My son, if thou wilt receive my words, and hide my commandments with thee; so that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints. Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. (Prov 2:1-9) My son, forget not my law; but let thine heart keep my commandments: for length of days, and long life, and peace shall they add to thee. Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: so shalt thou find favor and good understanding in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Prov 3:1-6) Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Length of days in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. She is a tree of life to them that lay hold upon her: and happy is everyone that retaineth her. (Prov 3:13-18)
Wisdom is defined here in Prov. 3:14-15 as being more precious, more valuable than silver, fine gold, and rubies. By far it cannot be compared to anything that one may possess. It is a great and most needed gift in the life of a believer and yet, it is the most lacked gift within the church, within the Body of Christ. It is not a gift lacked due to shortage, but is lacked because not many seek for it, not many cry out to the Lord for it, not many chase after it as they do for other things. Many seek for a quick resolution to a problem, but ask not for wisdom from the Lord that may help to alleviate the problem. Oftentimes the answer lies right before you, but without spiritual wisdom, youll keep seeking elsewhere for a solution, and finding none.
If you seek for great wealth and obtain it, what good will it do if you have not wisdom? For wisdom will show you how to not only obtain prosperity, but how to maintain as well and to use it wisely. Wealth in the hands of the unwise will leave him in ruins, for he would not spend that which has been given to him wisely but foolishly, and would be worse off in the end than he was in the beginning. Therefore, before one should ask for wealth, let him ask for wisdom first that when prosperity is obtained, he may utilize it for the Glory of God!
If you seek for success in Ministry and obtain it, what good will it do if you have not wisdom and furthermore an anointing. For wisdom will help you in discerning not only the WORD of God, but the WILL of God. A ministry in the hands of the unwise and carnal is dangerous, for such can very well lead an entire flock of sheep to slaughter. To preach the word of God is a good work and beautiful are the feet of those who preached the Gospel however, it cannot be done successfully without wisdom. For wisdom removes ALL OF SELF, and allows the Holy Spirit to do the work through him/her. Wisdom surrenders ALL to the Lord, and the unwise surrenders a portion and retains the rest. Wisdom waits for confirmation in the spirit before speaking and the unwise speaks before thinking. Wisdom speaks of the TRUTH as given by the Holy Spirit in ALL things, and the unwise speaks that which they believe is desired to be heard for ill profit gain. Wisdom seeks to edify, strengthen and build up the church while the unwise seeks to entertain the church. Wisdom seeks to glorify GOD, and the unwise seeks to be GLORIFIED. Wisdom seeks for the WILL of God, while the unwise seeks for the will of MAN. Therefore, before one should ask for a successful ministry, let him/her ask for wisdom first. That you may KNOW what is the perfect will of God and DO IT!
If you seek for the knowledge of this world and obtain it, what good will it do if you have not spiritual wisdom. For knowledge learned through textbooks is USELESS when you come against spiritual warfare. You cannot successfully fight the wickedness of the enemy with the things youve learned from the world and its system. Your worldly knowledge would be of no threat to him, your degrees would be of no threat to him, your skills would be of no threat to him, ONLY the NAME of JESUS and YOUR FAITH would be a threat to him and such cannot be learned through your worldly schooling. Therefore, seek spiritual wisdom FIRST and obtain TRUE KNOWLEDGE!
The fear of the Lord is the BEGINNING of KNOWLEDGE. Those who reverence the LORD GOD, has sought wisdom, and has RECEIVED IT! May those who have received, CLING to The Value of Wisdom. Hold tight and keep a firm grip, for you have obtain a most PRICELESS GIFT that is greater than all the possessions in the world. For those who lack wisdom, SEEK that you may FIND! For wisdom is not bias, does not have favorites, but is available for ALL who cries out for it; ALL who diligently seeks for it; for it is the Lords desire to give wisdom to ALL who asks for it.
The Value of Wisdomcannot be compared to the things of this world. One who has wisdom, KNOWS The Lord God for again, the BEGINNING of WISDOM is when one REVERENCE THE LORD!
I love you all so very much. Have a blessed week in the Lord and remember: Whatever we do, do ALL for the GLORY of GOD, who ALONE is worthy of the GLORY and the PRAISE!
May the peace of the Lord be with you today and always .Khandielese
