The Quest for God’s Wisdom

“But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him” (James 1:5).

It is only when we realize that our human wisdom is foolishness in pleasing God, bringing men to Christ, maturing men and women in the faith, living right, and building the church that we come and bow, desperately seeking the wisdom that comes from God alone. Only then will we truly listen to what He says and gladly and obediently obey, regardless the immediate impact or what is the latest fashion in doing church.

God looks to those who follow His Word. “For My hand made all these things, Thus all these things came into being,” declares the Lord. “But to this one I will look, To him who is humble and contrite of spirit, and who trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66:2).

We are not to be searching for novelty, new ideas, what the lost deem righteous, or a reinfusion of the divine into the old, but knowledge of our Lord Jesus as revealed in the Scripture. “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory, both now and to the day of eternity. Amen(2 Peter 3:18).
