Building Blocks: Add Wisdom

1. Wisdom according to the dictionary is “the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting”. Knowledge is “information gained through experience, reasoning, or acquaintance”.
2. You can have knowledge without wisdom, but you cannot have wisdom without knowledge. It has been said, “Knowledge is knowing how to use a gun; wisdom is knowing when to use it and when to keep it holstered.”
3. Biblical wisdom comes from a knowledge of God, receiving Christ, applying the Word of God, and knowing how to use it in daily life!
“The wisdom of God tells us that God will bring about the best possible results, by the best possible means, for the most possible people, for the longest possible time." - Charles Ryrie
3. God knows all about our past, present, and future!
4. Because He knows all things, nothing comes to our lives by accident or is a surprise to God! God's wisdom in your life means that whatever you are experiencing, whatever your circumstances, it comes as that is the only way His will can be accomplished in your life. If there were a kinder, faster, or more expedient way…He would do it! What you are in…is exactly what you need! God will use all that comes into our lives to accomplish His will.
C. So, upgrade to God's wisdom...
“To believe actively that our Heavenly Father constantly spreads around us providential circumstances that work for our present good and our everlasting well-being brings to the soul a veritable benediction. Most of us go through life praying a little, planning a little, jockeying for position, hoping but never being quite certain of anything, and always secretly afraid that we will miss the way. This is a tragic waste of truth and never gives rest to the heart…There is a better way. It is to repudiate our own wisdom and take instead the infinite wisdom of God… God has charged Himself with full responsibility for our eternal happiness and stands ready to take over the management of our lives the moment we turn in faith to Him."
- A.W. Tozer, The Knowledge of the Holy
1. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.
2. Knowing, loving, and fearing God all work together. (Fearing to see joy, hope, refuge in any other place, but God. Fear in trusting anything else, but God.)
3. Humility is directly linked to wisdom. Humility is teachable, open to change, growth, counsel, reason, truth, and ready to be corrected.
4. Wisdom hears and puts it into practice.
5. Wisdom comes by mature judgment.
1. Begin by first desiring wisdom.
2. Wisdom is found by knowing the Word of God.
3. Wisdom requires that we ask for it.
4. Wisdom is strengthened by realizing that life is short and wisdom is eternal.
5. Wisdom is achieved through Jesus!
