Wisdom is essential for life, love and a faithful journey. It is not knowledge. Wisdom is not a competitive striving to be right.
Wisdom is humility. Seeking the truth of God’s goodness and understanding that He is sovereign over all that has ever been created.
Wisdom is a searching for the heart of God.
Searching the heart of God requires proximity. Intention. Slowing down. Getting quiet. Waiting before Him.
Wisdom is available for us, from God, and all we have to do is ask believing He will say yes. With a child’s heart, expectantly we ask for wisdom. And with a mature posture of patience we wait to receive His gift.
Wisdom is found in searching for the heart of God. Searching, not by human ingenuity, but by simply bowing before the source of all wisdom. By asking for God’s help, His way, in His time, and with His words.
Wisdom is a slow brew, and well worth the investment of time, intention, and process.
“If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking. But when you ask him, be sure that your faith is in God alone. Do not waver, for a person with divided loyalty is as unsettled as a wave of the sea that is blown and tossed by the wind.”
James 1:5-6 NLT
