NKJV, James 3:13 – “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”.

CEV, James 3:13 – “Are any of you wise or sensible? Then show it by living right and by being humble and wise in everything you do”.

(NKJV) Proverbs 16:16-17 “How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather to be chosen than silver! v17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

(CEV) Proverbs 16:16-17 “It’s much better to be wise and sensible than to be rich. v17 God’s people avoid evil ways, and they protect themselves by watching where they go.

Is it not interesting in our day and age that almost everybody considers himself/herself to be wise? When you follow the media closely, you get to hear several people proposing solutions to national challenges and expecting their views to be considered as the ultimate wisdom needed. Many of us are wise in our own eyes.

It is better to acquire wisdom than gold. Looking at how gold is very valuable to us, one would wonder, “Is wisdom really that precious?”. Wisdom influences one’s thought process, attitude, choice of relationships, places to be or not to be and the times and seasons to act.

However, our Heavenly Father wants us to know that wisdom is not just in talking but more so, in our good conducts and gentility. In other words, show me a man of Godly fear and good conduct, and I will show you a man of wisdom. Wisdom can be defined as the inherent ability to know, understand, and do what is best under every given situation of life. Some have also defined wisdom as the right application of knowledge to obtain the best of results, but personally, I would define wisdom as having the insight, foresight, and the attitude to do what is best, at the best time and place, with the right people.

From all the definitions stated above, it is evident that knowledge and understanding precede wisdom. That means that, the kind of knowledge and understanding of the issues you have, determines the kind or the level of wisdom you live by. Secondly, we realize that one’s wisdom is seen not just in words but in his actions and works.

Wisdom = plain ‘common sense’ – It is exercised in the choices we make – Making  wise choices brings peace in our life, Wisdom Makes us successful in our life, work, relationships, stable  in our finances, etc. Wisdom is good for direction…it will show you what to say/do at the right time etc.  God Will Give you enough Wisdom (by His Grace (Favour), that even the wise will call you wise. ‘Seek wisdom’ for your daily  decision making. Wisdom & peace are like twins, when you walk in wisdom you will  get peace – if you don’t have peace then you know you are not walking in wisdom.

We need to run after Jesus because He is “The Power of God and The Wisdom of God”. The more we know Christ and Christ Crucified, the more we will have the Power and Wisdom of God. Jesus is The Wisdom of God Incarnated in Flesh – when you look at Jesus you see the Wisdom of God, so you do not have to wonder what the Wisdom of God is. Always let us use the Wisdom from Above so that we turn up to be who God Wants to be. All you have to do is to look at Jesus. Jesus’ Life is a Manifestation of The Wisdom of God. The Source of our Wisdom is God. Use your Faith to find God’s Wisdom Which is in His WORD. Wisdom Gives you safety even in the midst of fire, famine, war, etc.

wisdom ought to be directing for life. That is why after a careful study of life, Solomon made a profound statement that, “Wisdom is the principal thing: therefore get wisdom.” (Proverbs 4:7). As it stands now, the quest for money has become the principal reason for which we do most of the things we do. Money is good and a necessity of life. However, it must not be the most valuable treasure our hearts yearn for. Live your life with Godly Wisdom now, so that you do not end up with regrets later in your life.

Apostle James explained that those  who are wise and understanding among us are those who show it with good works, done in gentleness that wisdom brings. Your lifestyle reveals your wisdom. It is better to be a man of few words but good deeds than to be loud but vain and profitless to society.

Choose your words carefully – there’s power in what we say, so let’s pray for some Wisdom with our mouth. Get the Wisdom of God before you start saying something bad & put yourself in trouble. Whatever position you have at work never use the wisdom of man, but always operate in the Wisdom of God. If we keep asking God for Miracles & we keep getting one we will always need them, but if we ask for wisdom God will Help us out of the problem & we will keep out of trouble by not doing that wrong thing again. Whenever you get a problem do not run to people, go to God first for His Wisdom Put The Wisdom of God to work on everything in life.

Wisdom makes a man rich without adding sorrow to it, but the aggressive search for wealth often leads many into snares without they realising them. Show me a wiseman, and I can guarantee that he will not end up in poverty, but the folly of a rich man makes others take advantage of him. When God blesses a person with Wisdom, that person will always know exactly what to do to make the best out of all life’s circumstances. I want to challenge you today; make Wisdom a priority in life. The first act of Godly Wisdom is to fear the LORD and obey His Commands for your life. The reason is simple: it is Wisdom to entrust your life to the One Who Knows and Sees it all, and is Loving and Powerful enough to bring the best out of you. Wisdom is better than gold, understanding, more desirable than silver and money.

Stop taking advice from ungodly people – worldly Wisdom is controlled the devil so it is good-worldly wisdom is foolish. God Wants  us to have enough Godly Wisdom to know when to speak, what say, and when to stop. Godly Wisdom is one of the  most  Important & the most Precious thing that you can obtain. Don’t put your Faith in  the wisdom of man. If we follow the Wisdom of God then people in the world will see our God, but they cannot see our God if we are like them. Be real, honest, and use Godly Wisdom with other people. Continue to grow in your Faith in God and live in The Wisdom of His Word. Believe God for a Great Change in your life.

I want to inspire us all today. Are we truly wise and understanding? Let us take a second look at our decisions and conducts as we attempt to answer the question above. Let us live in gentleness and good conduct for that is the true expression of wisdom.


Heavenly Father, please grant me the Divine gift of wisdom to know and do what is best at all times in all circumstances of life. Lead me LORD in Your Wisdom and Bless me, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
