It doesn’t seem to matter where I turn – the Wisdom of God has been a key phrase so far in 2016. I am learning so much about God’s wisdom – and it is taking me deeper in my walk with Him. I am learning about God on a new level – and it has been intimate.
Before 2016 even began, I decided I wanted to start offering a Scripture Writing Challenge. I just wanted to encourage women to read and write out one verse a day. My plan was to send deovionals with it – and as those of you who signed up know very well – my email server hasn’t liked that! *No fear, I am changing it up a bit in February!* Nonetheless, the topic God placed on my heart for this challenge for January was – the Wisdom of God. I coupled this with a memory verse challenge for Kids in the Word – and bam – the Wisdom of God was my focus for January.
Then, Good Morning Girls (where I am on leadership and and also where I get my scripture for my daily devotions) started for the next session. In the book of Job. I saw men who claimed to be the friends of Job, and seemed to claim to know a lot about God- but they spoke foolishly. They didn’t really know God. They knew what they wanted – but not truly all about His character. Again and again, I was reminded of the Wisdom of God.
Fast-forward and that brings about the Fervent book Club. I thought I was just going to be focusing on getting my prayer life on track. Wrong. Prayer goes hand in hand with the Word of God- the place the Wisdom of God is found. We were challenged to dig into the Word and find verses to pray with our prayers. Wisdom again played a part.
So this month, I have been working on Memorizing Proverbs 2:1-9. It hasn’t been easy – and I don’t have it yet. I issued it as a part of the Writing Challenge. I am not sure if any of you have taken me up on it – but I think I will be working on this passage for some time to come.
Part of memorizing this passage about wisdom has had me read this passage. Over and over again.
Wisdom comes as a gift from God, or it can be sought after. We need to seek it. We have to want it. It takes effort. It is a constant process of growing.
My challenge to you today is to never stop seeking Wisdom. Never think you know it all. Even if you have read the Bible cover to cover- there is no way to know it all. We can study it our whole life, and never come close to all the wisdom God wants to share with us there.
Seek Wisdom – and you will find it.
