Fear of the Lord

Wisdom STARTS when we willingly surrender our earthly pursuits, and desires, and seek heavenly things above all other things. Wisdom STARTS when we give God respect, and honor him, in all if our dealings, and put down all that dishonors, and displeases him.

Many seek for wisdom, but is it easily attainable?

Wisdomability to apply knowledge, experience, understanding or common sense and insight.

Solomon the wisest man to ever live sought God for wisdom. Ability to apply knowledge, experience, or common sense, to a situation or circumstance. Ability to divide right from wrong, and desipher truth from error. Reading and studying God’s word opens up that understanding and knowledge. When we trust God, and what his word says, rather than what our opinion is, we show God that we trust him. Fear of God is developed in our hearts, which in turn grows wisdom. Heavenly wisdom, not just any wisdom! A wisdom that is beyond human understanding and comprehension.

James talks about wisdom, and the difference of it.

Two types of wisdom

There are two types of wisdom in this world;  

  • earthly wisdom that is operated by pride, and 
  • heavenly wisdom that is gained through honest living, and humility.

Earthly wisdom is gained by experience, knowledge or education. This wisdom according to James is bitter envy, and is full of selfish ambition. Such wisdom does not come from heaven, but is earthly, unspiritual, and demonic. 

For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
James 3: 13-16

Reverence and respect to higher authority is the START of heavenly wisdom.

The second type is the wisdom of heaven, that is operated by humility, and honor and is gained through honest living. This type of wisdom is illustrated in the lives of those who live according to the precepts of God’s Holy Word; by living a good lives, acceptable, and pleasing to GOD.

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. 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 12:1-2

Wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-lovingconsideratesubmissivefull of mercy and good fruitimpartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

To gain wisdom one must first seek for the fear of the Lord, and for understanding. Solomon in the book of Proverbs reveals this great mystery, and we better pay attention.
