The Importance of God's Wisdom

Godly wisdom is one of the most important components of godliness. It is not only a gift from God but also an essential part of your spiritual growth. The life of wisdom is a life that is spent pursuing truth and learning as much as possible about God and His plans for us.


Godly wisdom brings peace and understanding to our lives, allowing us to make decisions and choices with confidence and clarity. It helps us live with grace, compassion, forgiveness, patience, humility, and love toward others.


The more we encounter God’s Word, the more we become like Him by growing in His likeness (2 Timothy 3:16). But how can this be accomplished? How do we grow in our knowledge of God’s Word?


What does it take to gain godly wisdom so that we can understand His will for our lives? Reading God’s word is the answer to gaining godly wisdom that will help us live meaningful and purposeful lives that are full of joy and happiness.


Godly wisdom is a gift from God. It is the ability to think and make decisions using the mind, the heart, and the will in harmony with one another. The Bible says that God gives us wisdom to protect us from our own foolishness Ecclesiastes 7:24). For us to be able to use godly wisdom, we must be able to discern what is good and what is bad, wise and unwise, true and false which comes from the knowledge of the scriptures.


We must also develop a set of values that are consistent with these scriptural truths. Only then can we apply these principles in our daily lives so that we can live according to God’s standards. If you lack godly wisdom and understanding, you will be led astray by the folly of your own heart and the corrupt wisdom of this world. You must understand that acquiring knowledge is not enough as it means nothing if you can’t make sense of it. (Proverbs 16:22,23) tells us that prudence is the fountain of life but folly or foolishness brings punishment to fools and this is what will happen to you if you lack godly wisdom to help you live prudently and wisely.


Godly wisdom also allows us as believers to see through deception and recognize lies when they are told to us or by others. It helps us avoid making decisions based on emotions rather than reason or experience. When we make decisions based on our emotions instead of our intellect, it usually results in negative outcomes for others and ourselves around us. Godly wisdom is a precious commodity. It is the fruit of the Holy Spirit and a gift from God. It is an ability to discern what is right, what is wrong, and how to do things properly.


Also, biblical wisdom helps us make good decisions in our lives and it protects us from making poor ones. It helps us see clearly the things that matter most so that we can focus on those things and ignore things that distract us. Godly wisdom also helps us make wise choices concerning our lives so that we don’t end up making life choices we end up regretting in the end through our foolish decisions.


Godly wisdom is one of the most important components of godliness. It is not only a gift from God but also an essential part of your spiritual growth. The life of wisdom is a life that is spent pursuing truth and learning as much as possible about God and His plans for us.
