Our Wednesday night Bible Study at church is studying the attributes of God.  The video study is "Rekindling the Fire" by Mark Kieler.  Last night was part 6 of 18 and the attribute of the Lords was wisdom. 

Here are some of the things that impacted me & the scriptural references for you to look up, if you desire.

Examine where you have been getting your wisdom from.  From scripture we get the truest, purest and greatest wisdom found in Jesus Christ.

What makes wisdom so valuable, is it helps us make the right choices, the right decisions, to choose the best path, and to consistently and successfully select the most beneficial method, approach, solution or venue that is available.

Knowledge can be a good thing, but wisdom is even beyond knowledge because wisdom is the tremendous beneficial God-given skill of being able to take and apply knowledge to real-life situations.

Wisdom ~ a discerning heart to distinguish between right and wrong

1 Kings 3:4-13
1 Kings 4:29-34
1 Kings 1:1-10
1Kings 3:16-18
1Kings 3:12
Luke 11:29-32

Wisdom helps solve life's most difficult problems.  It's the kind of attribute that enables those who it at, or at least those who have access to it, to take complex moral dilemmas, or difficult, critical, apparently unsolvable life decisions and be able to discern not merely safe, effective solution but the safest, most effective, most productive and most godly solutions~ which breeds a kind of love and admiration in our hearts for those who have such wisdom and especially for those who are willing and able to help us by applying their wisdom to our life problems.

Human minds are finite, but Jesus Christ is God and because He is God, His wisdom is infinite, perfect, unlimited.

Jesus Christ knows everything, everything possible, everything actual, all events, all creatures, the past, the present, the future.  He is perfectly and completely aware of every detail in life pertaining to every being that's alive not just on earth but in heaven and in hell.

Daniel 2:22
Psalm 139:6
Psalm 147:5
James 1:17
Colossians 1:16-17
Job 40:6-7, 39:3-38
Matthew 10:29-30
Hebrews 4:13
Psalm 139:1-18
Psalm 139:23-24
Hebrews 4:13
Luke 11:13
Proverbs 15:3
Psalm 90:8
2 Chronicles 16:9
Genesis 16:13
Luke 11:31
Proverbs 1:22-23
Proverbs 4:7-9

Godly, scriptural wisdom will bless you in your life in ways far too profound and numerous to even begin to list.  And it will cause you to do so many things so differently than the conventional wisdom of the world.

Just where have you been getting your wisdom from? 

5 Critical Applications

1. Ask for wisdom James 1:5-7
2. Search for wisdom Proverbs 2:1-6
3. Trust and expect wisdom Philippians 4:6-7
4. Apply wisdom Philippians 4:6-7 & Proverbs 2:6-22
5. Love and appreciate wisdom and its source: Jesus Christ 1 Corinthians 1:30

The love we ought to have for Jesus Christ whose wisdom teaches us how to love one another, how best to live life, how best to raise our children, what blesses God, what is truly good and what is truly evil, ad literally everything there is to know about life, both in this life and in the next.  How utterly lost we would be ~ many are lost without even knowing it ~ apart from wisdom.  May God give you the grace to lean not on your own understanding but to trust in the one and only true wisdom: the wisdom of Jesus Christ.

My take on this lesson ~ turn to the source of all wisdom.  You will only find that through Jesus Christ. 

Thankful for ~

The Lords sharing His wisdom with us ~ through prayer, scriptures, seeking
Godly men who share the attributes of the Lord they have studied
Calmness in the midst of the storms of life
This season of Thanksgiving
