WISDOM, THE PRINCIPAL THING
Proverbs 4 vs
»»7.¶Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom…[KJV]«« ||
ALMOST every building has a foundation, and the strength of the whole building mainly depends on the depth of that foundation. Without a good foundation, the main structure whether great or small will fall flat. Wisdom is an essential ingredient for building a house. Therefore as much as a building needs a solid foundation, everyone needs wisdom as a solid foundation in life. A life built on wisdom is of great value (Mt 7:24).
Wisdom has many facets in terms of definitions. It has been simply defined as “the right application of knowledge”. It can also mean the force in man that enables him to do the right thing, at the right time, at the right place using the right means. In scripture, wisdom is Jesus personified. In Him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col 2:3). It is of reality that everyone born of a woman has got natural wisdom. This kind of wisdom rests or operates on sensual facts likes sight, taste, smell, touch and hearing. It goes according to the direction and dictates of the human senses.
However, there is another kind of wisdom which comes from above (James 3:17). It is the supernatural wisdom of God. It begins with the fear of the Lord or the new birth (Prov 9:10). It does not base on human senses to operate. It brings you to a certain realm of knowing, seeing and doing things in a peculiar way. It is the principal thing; meaning the “first and best” or supreme or of utmost importance in life”. This wisdom makes you operate in a godly way. You do things the way Christ wants you to do them. Walk in this wisdom today and enjoy great results in life. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Dear Father, thank You for blessing me from Your word. I embrace and walk in true wisdom for sweet victories in life. I choose to walk right, think right, talk right by reason of Your wisdom embodied in me. I enjoy all the treasures that wisdom brings: holiness, honour, silver, gold, strength, long life, right decisions in the Name of Jesus Christ. Amen !
Enjoy A Fruitful Monday !
