If anyone needs wisdom, ask the Lord to give it to you, for all wisdom comes from our Heavenly Father.
Wisdom, especially spiritual wisdom, is not just about knowing what’s good for you, but it’s about applying that knowledge to your everyday life circumstances.
The Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. (Pro 2:6 CEB)
17 I ask the glorious Father and God of our Lord Jesus Christ to give you his Spirit. The Spirit will make you wise and let you understand what it means to know God. 18 My prayer is that light will flood your hearts and you will understand the hope given to you when God chose you. Then you will discover the glorious blessings that will be yours together with all God’s people. (Eph 1:17-18 CEV, emphasis added)
If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (Jas 1:5 ESV)
We increase wisdom by walking with God. As we revere and respect God, live in awe of His presence and power, make our choices based upon His Word, and love Him with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, His wisdom grows and matures within us. Reading the Bible regularly and memorizing Scripture passages plants wisdom in our hearts and nurtures it.
And of course, if we need God’s guidance or direction in a specific circumstance, all we need to do is pray and ask Him for His wisdom, and He will hear and answer us.
