๐‘พ๐’Š๐’”๐’…๐’๐’Ž is defined as:

  1. ability to discern inner qualities and relationships
  2. marked by deep understanding, keen discernment, and a capacity for sound judgment

๐‘ฒ๐’๐’๐’˜๐’๐’†๐’…๐’ˆ๐’† is defined as:

  1. the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association
  2. the sum of what is known : the body of truth, information, and principles acquired by humankind

and

๐‘ผ๐’๐’…๐’†๐’“๐’”๐’•๐’‚๐’๐’…๐’Š๐’๐’ˆ is defined as the power to make experience intelligible by applying concepts and categories.

Those who know me can attest that I love the book of Proverbs. Iโ€™ve read the book multiple times and Iโ€™m sure Iโ€™ll read it many more times through out my life. Why? Because the book of Proverbs has wisdom. Not just wisdom as defined above, but ๐‘ซ๐’Š๐’—๐’Š๐’๐’† wisdom. Only those who seek the heart of God will be able to identify His wisdom, and, more importantly, live it.

If we just read Proverbs, or even the Bible, simply as an instruction manual (tell me what I should do and what I shouldnโ€™t do) we will miss the gold of its intent; ๐’“๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’‚๐’ ๐‘ฎ๐’๐’….

Why did I define wisdom, knowledge, and understanding? Because oftentimes, in the Christian circles, I see these 3 words used interchangeably and they are definitely not synonyms. They are each important attributes to have, but above every one of them is Divine wisdom. One that we are encouraged to ask God for (James 1:5).

To live our lives, experiencing the full breathe of the ๐’‘๐’“๐’๐’Ž๐’Š๐’”๐’†๐’” ๐’๐’‡ ๐‘ฑ๐’†๐’”๐’–๐’”, requires we walk in Godโ€™s wisdom, Divine wisdom. Knowing, seeing, feeling things that He does would surely allow us to walk through this life with more ease, fulfilling the promises of Jesus by experiencing an ๐’‚๐’ƒ๐’–๐’๐’…๐’‚๐’๐’• life filled with ๐’‹๐’๐’š, ๐’‘๐’†๐’‚๐’„๐’†, and ๐’๐’๐’—๐’†.

Read the scriptures with new ๐’†๐’š๐’†๐’› and a new ๐’‰๐’†๐’‚๐’“๐’•. One that longs to know who God is – and not simply what He wants us to do. Your relationship with Him will ๐’ˆ๐’“๐’๐’˜ ๐’…๐’†๐’†๐’‘๐’†๐’“ than you ever thought possible, youโ€™ll receive ๐’“๐’†๐’—๐’†๐’๐’‚๐’•๐’Š๐’๐’ that will leave you speechless, and itโ€™ll be easier to ๐’˜๐’‚๐’๐’Œ ๐’•๐’‰๐’Š๐’” ๐’๐’Š๐’‡๐’† out because youโ€™ll be able to see and feel from ๐†๐—ผ๐โ€™๐ฌ ๐ฉ๐ž๐ซ๐ฌ๐ฉ๐ž๐œ๐ญ๐ข๐ฏ๐ž.

โ€œWise people are buildersโ€” they build families, businesses, communities. And through intelligence and insight their enterprises are established and endure.

Because of their skilled leadership the hearts of people are filled with the treasures of wisdom and the pleasures of spiritual wealth.

Wisdom can make anyone into a mighty warrior, and revelation-knowledge increases strength. Wise strategy is necessary to wage war, and with many astute advisers youโ€™ll see the path to victory more clearly. Wisdom is a treasure too lofty for a quarreling foolโ€” heโ€™ll have nothing to say when leaders gather together.โ€
