There are things we ought to be content with. The Apostle Paul says “I have learned the secret of contentment”, and he was talking about money and possessions. But there are things I ought not to be content with, I ought to want more, much more, more and more, tons more, consumed with the insatiable desire for more, driven by the desire for more. There are five things that I want more of, that I plead to God for, that I work very hard for more of, and that I agonize over. The first is wisdom, I want so much more wisdom than I presently have. Wisdom is knowing what to say and do in every situation God sovereignly places me in,
Understanding will watch over you,Wisdom is being able to solve the problems of life successfully both for myself and for others. Wisdom is being able to think like God.
God promises to give wisdom to those who want it, really want it, and seek it like a billion dollars is at stake.
Proverbs 2:2-11 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, incline your heart to understanding; for if you cry for discernment, lift your voice for understanding; if you seek her as silver and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will discern righteousness and justice and equity and every good course. For wisdom will enter your heart and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; discretion will guard you, understanding will watch over you,
Those who are consumed with more and more wisdom read a lot, they listen to good teachers, they seek counsel from many different sources, they write what they learn so as not to forget, and they never resist being corrected. God asked King Solomon what he wanted more than anything else, he responded with “wisdom”, and God was pleased with this desire and granted it to Him. In 2018 I am committed to seeking wisdom like gold, and asking God for more and more wisdom every single day.
