Wisdom is precious and valuable: Keys to Wisdom

Posted: June 9, 2014 in The Word of God, Meditation

How much better to get wisdom than gold, to get insight rather than silver! (Pro 16:16)

Whatever we do, whatever we work, whether in our leadership responsibilities, whether as a team, whether in business, whether in our daily works, whatever responsibilities we might be having, whatever we face in life, whatever situations and circumstances come before us, if we do not forsake wisdom, wisdom will protect us.

Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you. (Pro 4:6)

Abraham Lincoln said, “I have been driven many times upon my knees by the overwhelming conviction that I had no where else to go. My own wisdom and that of all about me seemed insufficient for that day.”

Therefore 2 MAIN KEYS to be filled with wisdom are:-

1. A deep desire to do the will of God: The person who has a deep desire to do the will of God is filled with wisdom. Do it God’s Way, “Your will be done”, that’s wisdom.

2. Meditation: (The word of God consist of all the characters and natures of God, meditating on the characters and natures of God, THAT WILL PROVIDE US MORE WISDOM, The Goodness of God, His Mercy, His love, His fatherhood, His greatness, His marvelous deeds, what He has done for us, and on his laws and on his words), Continually putting our thoughts on the laws of the Lord/ on the word of God. The person who continually meditate, who continually put his thoughts on the law of the Lord is filled with wisdom.

The Apostle Paul puts it this way – “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then YOU WILL BE ABLE to test and approve WHAT GOD’S WILL IS–his good, pleasing and perfect will”. (Romans 12:2)

And wisdom help us to decide – How should I take a step? How should I do this? How should I handle this? How should I handle this responsibilities? How should I face this situation?

What God’s will is – (Rom 12:2)
1. His Good will
2. His Pleasing will
3. His Perfect will

And Meditation can be done any time, we can always think about God, about His laws, about His words, continually putting our thoughts on the things of God. While we work, while we have conversations with our customers, while we have conversation with friends, while we drive, while making plans, while discussing things, in a quiet place, while walking in the street, and any time of our days we can always put our thoughts on the word of God.

One of the main KEY God gave Joshua to handle his leadership responsibilities of leading the Israelites is “To be careful to obey all the laws, to think and put his thoughts on the laws of the Lord day and night”.

Joshua 1:7-8

Be careful to obey all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right or to the left, so that you may have success wherever you go (in every areas).

“This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.

Wisdom is practical, it is revelational as well as practical, therefore it required taking step of obedient. The person who meditate on the law of the Lord is filled with wisdom.
