Biblical wisdom is a tool for life. The word of God says that no worldly desire could ever compare to the value of biblical wisdom, which is different from "worldly" wisdom or life experience. When we allow the Holy Spirit in his omniscience, to lead, guide, teach, and instruct us through life--we have a most precious gift.
Biblical wisdom enables us to make sound decisions. It brings confidence, knowledge, understanding, discretion that is not germane to the culture and influence of the world. It is divine, supernatural, and goes beyond human logic and reasoning.
It takes humility to gain biblical wisdom, as we must own that we do not know everything and that we need help to walk through life successfully! If you desire biblical wisdom--ask for it! God's word tells that if we lack wisdom, we are to ask for it. When we ask, God gives it liberally (James 1:5)!
Our pastor has encouraged our congregation to read a chapter of Proverbs and a chapter of The Psalms daily. In so doing, wisdom is obtained and we are thereby equipped with a tool for life.
Father, in Jesus' name, I pray for wisdom. I thank you for this tool for life; a tool for living that is more valuable than even the most precious jewel. I pray for the guidance, teaching, and instruction of the Holy Spirit. I pray that you would make me wise in every area of my life. Amen.
