Seeking Wisdom from God: Biblical Counsel and Knowledge for Life

As believers in the Judeo-Christian faith, we understand that wisdom is an essential aspect of our spiritual journey. Seeking and finding wisdom from YHWH is a critical aspect of our relationship with God. It is through wisdom that we gain understanding, knowledge, and guidance to navigate the complexities of life.

The Bible is replete with numerous verses that speak about seeking wisdom from God. Proverbs 2:6 reminds us that, "For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding." In James 1:5, we are encouraged to ask God for wisdom, and He will give it to us generously, without finding fault.

Seeking wise counsel is also an essential component of obtaining wisdom. In Proverbs 12:15, we read that, "The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man listens to advice." Seeking wise counsel helps us to gain perspectives beyond our own limited understanding and to make better decisions.

The Bible is clear that we are not to rely on our own understanding. In Proverbs 3:5-6, we are instructed to, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight."

We are also encouraged to seek knowledge and understanding from the Word of God. Proverbs 8:10-11 says, "Choose my instruction instead of silver, knowledge rather than choice gold, for wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire can compare with her."

When we seek God for wisdom, He promises to give it to us without finding fault. In James 1:5, we read, "If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you." This promise reminds us that we can approach God with confidence, knowing that He desires to give us wisdom to navigate the complexities of life.

One way to deepen our understanding of God's Word is through a chronological Bible study. Such a study enables us to gain insights into the historical context of Scripture and the unfolding of God's plan throughout history. It is an excellent way to grow in our knowledge of God and His ways.

As we seek wisdom from God and engage in Bible study, we are encouraged to give back to others in need. Colel Chabad is a charity that helps the impoverished in Israel. Supporting their work is a tangible way to show God's love to those in need.

In conclusion, seeking and finding wisdom from YHWH is essential for our spiritual growth and relationship with God. As we seek wise counsel, knowledge, and understanding from His Word, we can trust that He will give us wisdom without finding fault. Let us approach God with confidence, knowing that He desires to give us the wisdom we need to navigate the complexities of life. And as we grow in wisdom, let us give back to others in need, showing God's love to those around us. Consider supporting Colel Chabad as a way to give back to those in need while deepening your understanding of God's Word through a chronological Bible study.
