Way To Divine Wisdom

Key Verse

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (James 1:5).

Text — James 1:5-8


Apostle James in our Bible text addressed Christian believers on divine wisdom. He was against the wisdom that was, earthly, sensual, and devilish which produces confusion and every evil work. That was the kind of wisdom that Amnon used to commit immorality with Tamar.  However, the divine wisdom is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful, impartial and without hypocrisy (See James 3:14-17).

The Cambridge English dictionary defines wisdom as, “The ability to use your knowledge and experience to make good decisions and judgement.” Divine wisdom is from God and it is useful in handling life’s issues. The beginning of divine wisdom is to have a life of faith in Christ Jesus through salvation from sin. Then come to God in faith and ask for divine wisdom to succeed in all areas of your life, including education and career, and He will grant your request. You must however study and meditate on the Word of God so that your faith does not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God (1Corinthians 2:5).


Your path to wisdom is God’s Word.


Obey Divine instructions.
