Scripture tells us that God’s wisdom cries out to mankind every day. The instruction of this wisdom is to fear the Lord and to walk in humility. Jesus modeled both of these qualities as Son of Man. The effect of this wisdom is in stark contrast to the unsanctified wisdom of this world’s systems.
Once again, we see the wisdom that we speak of being found exclusively in the person of Jesus Christ. So, it is wise to walk as Jesus walked. Jesus put this truth plainly when He said, “Follow Me.” Although it is unquestionably wise to follow Jesus, and Jesus is the Word made flesh, it is unwise for us to walk after our flesh. Instead, wisdom dictates that we walk in the Spirit, as Jesus did.
May each of us be filled afresh today with “the Spirit of wisdom” in following Jesus. May each of us realize that walking in obedience to God is our wisdom and understanding. Lord Jesus, “teach us to number our days, that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.” Yes, “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.” Only a fool would despise God’s holy wisdom.
Are you lacking wisdom today? Call upon the Lord and He will give it to you. A wise person is a happy person. “Happy are the people whose God is the Lord!”
