The Wisdom You Need

The wisdom you need is found in Christ. He is all the wisdom that you will ever need. When you trusted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you received "the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being opened" (Ephesians 1:17-18).

As you need wisdom in a particular area, ask the Lord. He has wisdom for every issue in your life. His wisdom will direct you in every decision. You will know for sure when He gives you wisdom. His wisdom and peace always work together. When He gives you wisdom, He gives you peace. "But the wisdom from above is pure, then peaceable" (James 3:17).

As you read the Bible, ask the Lord to open your eyes of understanding. He will lead you in the word of truth to give you wisdom and understanding. The Bible is God's word of wisdom to all who believe. God will show you His purpose and plan for your life. "For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them" (Ephesians 2:10).

The light of understanding comes to you through the wisdom of Christ. The Lord gives you understanding to defeat confusion and misunderstanding. Thank the Lord that you have wisdom, because the Lord is your wisdom.
