Who is wise? Let him understand these things. Who is prudent? Let him know them. For the ways of the Lord are right; the righteous walk in them. But transgressors stumble in them. (Hos 14:9)
To be wise, we must seek to understand God’s precepts and ways. Understand means to perceive the intended meaning of His Words and His ways. Another definition states that to understand means to apprehend clearly the character, nature, or subtleties of something.
Therefore, in order to be wise in God’s sight, we will clearly apprehend the character, nature, and subtleties of God’s Words and His ways—and His personality.
If you don’t feel that you’ve arrived just yet at that place, then study passages from the Bible every single day. Meditate upon what you’ve read. Ask the Holy Spirit to enlighten your understanding and to give you wisdom. He will answer your prayers.
He will open the eyes of your understanding and give you revelations into the Word of God and into God’s loving nature. Hallelujah!
