What is the Christian’s wisdom? Does he look to the philosophies of this world? No! To begin with, Jesus Christ is our wisdom. In Jesus Christ “are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3). The first step toward true wisdom is the receiving of Jesus Christ as Saviour.

The Word of God is also our wisdom. “Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations” (Deuteronomy 4:5-6). The Scriptures are able to make us “wise unto salvation” (2 Timothy 3:15).

James 1:5 indicates that we find wisdom through believing prayer “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God.” The Holy Spirit of God is “the Spirit of wisdom and revelation” (Ephesians 1:17) and He directs us in the wisest paths as we trust the Word and pray.

The origin of true spiritual wisdom is God. To get your wis¬dom from any other source is to ask for trouble. There is no need to get the counterfeit wisdom of the world, the wisdom that caters to the flesh and accomplishes the work of the devil. Get your wisdom from God!

A wise man wrote: “The Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding. He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity” (Proverbs 2:6-7, NASB).

Consider: Isaiah 30:21; 1 Corinthians 1:24-31; Colossians 3:16.

Action assignment: Determine to keep in touch with Christ, who is your wisdom. If you lack wisdom in any situation today, “ask of God.”
