The Wisdom Of God
Stephen Heleman

Each week we will start our study of who God is by saying this prayer, "God, I want to see you as you are, the real God." 

The Depth of God's Wisdom

Oh, the depth of the riches and WISDOM and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! Romans 11:33

The root word of wisdom means 'the ability to see and know'. We cannot comprehend that God can see and know everything that is, everything that could be, and everything that will be. Because we make decisions based on things we see and know, we all struggle to make good decisions at times. It can be frustrating, but in James 1:5-8, God gives us another option. 

God's perfect wisdom is available to you if you...

  • Ask In humility. Asking means that we admit we don't have the answers. God made it simple for us to seek His wisdom when He gave us the Bible. Strive to fill your life with God's wisdom by filling yourself with His word.
  • Ask in reverence. God loves us and wants the best for us, but He is not a toy. We cannot pick and choose which parts of God's word we listen to. 
  • Ask in faith. God is wise and His will is perfect, even when we don't understand it. Stand firmly on the foundation of God's word and you will not fail.  

You Can Live In Wisdom

15 Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the best use of the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5:15-17

The days we live in can be confusing and difficult. We can either be foolish and ignore the wisdom of God, or we can live in wisdom by aligning ourselves with His will. 

Are you looking for His wisdom first?
Are you aligning your life to His will?
Are you fully committed to what He wants for you?

Fully trusting God is living a life of wisdom.
