Proverbs 24:3,4 is one of my life scriptures. It really speaks to me every time I read it. And why am I saying that is because I read it this past weekend and as I was reading it I believe God spoke to me and showed me the importance of wisdom. As I was reading my bible this passage of scripture really jumped out at me again. Wisdom is the key to life and this chapter shows us just that. I am going to give you 4 reasons why you should ask for wisdom.
1 – Proverbs 24:3 says; Through skillful and godly wisdom is a house (a life, a home, a family) built, and by understanding it is established [on a sound and good foundation],
And by knowledge shall its chambers [of every area] be filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
The first reason we need to ask for wisdom is because by wisdom we build a life, a home and a family. You cannot do it otherwise. I cannot stress enough how important this verse is. Your life will make sense when you have godly wisdom. You cannot rely on your own strength because you will fail. Having all the money is not the answer. It is by SKILLFUL and GODLY wisdom that you build your life.
2 – Proverbs 24:5 says;
A wise man is strong and is better than a strong man, and a man of knowledge increases and strengthens his power.
If you had to make a choice between being physically strong and being wise the bible says being wise is better. A wise man is better than a physically strong man and on top of that he keeps on getting stronger. If you are wise then you are strong and getting stronger.
3 – When we are making important choices what do we do? Do we just decide on the way without praying and seeking advice? Do we rely on ourselves to make choices? A wise person will do what Proverbs 24:6 says,
For by wise counsel you can wage your war, and in an abundance of counselors there is victory and safety.
You can only wage war when you have wisdom. Your chances of winning are extremely high when you have wisdom. Wisdom is seeking the Lord for answers in prayer and asking for advise from men and women of God that you trust! When you do that you can be assured victory in the war that you are waging!!
4 – My son, eat honey, because it is good, and the drippings of the honeycomb are sweet to your taste.
So shall you know skillful and godly Wisdom to be thus to your life; if you find it, then shall there be a future and a reward, and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off. Proverbs 24;13
What a graphic description of what wisdom is supposed to be in your life! The word says if you find wisdom then shall there be a future and a reward for you and your hope and expectation shall not be cut off.
Wisdom is the key to life. We need wisdom if we are to succeed in life. Since I got this revelation I have been asking God for wisdom. God will give wisdom to those who ask. Young boy/girl, please understand the importance of wisdom in your life. You may not know what you want to do with your life but ask God for wisdom. Desire wisdom above money and other worldly things. You will do great things when you have wisdom.
For the rest of us, my desire is that you see how important wisdom is. One of the ways of getting wisdom is by reading and meditating on the word of God. Actually it is the main way. Get hungry for the word. That is wisdom!
