Job 28:12, "But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?"
We often go about our daily lives trying to figure out why people don't use common sense and we attempt to get an understanding of how they come up with the foolishness they present to us. Wisdom is a gift from God, however understanding is given freely to those who are willing to seek it. The Bible tells us in all things to get an understanding. Lack of understanding causes a heap of drama that can easily be avoided by us being persistent in seeking God's Counsel. We often focus on the Gossip of others instead of focusing on the Gospel of Christ. Wisdom and understanding are weapons of mass destruction for those who attain them. God is pleased when we ask Him for things we NEED instead of what we WANT. God moves swiftly when we seek Him concerning gifts that will enlarge His Kingdom and our Territory. Also, God gives His wisdom freely. You can study any person in the Bible who asked God for wisdom and the pattern you will soon discover is that He granted them wisdom instantly. King Solomon could have asked for anything when He received the favor of God over his life, but out of wisdom Solomon knew he would need something to carry Him in the long-term. Wisdom will sustain the favor of God in your life. Because Solomon sought God for wisdom and knowledge, there was never a man before him nor after him as wise as he was nor wealthy. If you ever want to know how a successful person remains so, I assure you that wisdom was their compass. Always remember,wisdom is the answer key to understanding. Be blessed and encouraged!
