So what is Wisdom?
Solomon’s Prayer for Wisdom:
"Give your servant a discerning heart to govern your people and to distinguish between right and wrong" 1 Kings 3:9
By age 20 or so, Solomon was named king of Israel. In a dream God told Solomon to ask for anything he wanted. Solomon asked for wisdom so that as the king he would make right decisions for the people. God was extremely pleased with Solomon's request and granted his wish. God also blessed him with unbelievable wealth and honor when he didn't even ask for those things.
It's not enough to just have earthly intellect. The bible says, "For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom" 1 Corinthians 1:25. So true. Gods way is the best way even when it seems foolish.
Let's pray and ask God for Wisdom!
Heavenly Father I ask for a discerning heart so I can make wise choices in my life. Give me understanding of your Holy Word so that your influence will affect every decision I make. Surround me with people who are full of your wisdom to strengthen and encourage me in this area. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer, in Jesus' name. Amen!!
