James 3:17-18: But the wisdom that comes from Heaven

But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.

James 3:17-18 NIV

Godly wisdom is vastly different than the wisdom of this world.  God’s wisdom is based upon who He is and His kingdom.  The wisdom of the this world is based upon the lies and deceptions of Satan.  Humanity in their pride and arrogance believe they can truly solve their own problems and are in no need of a savior.  But many who continue down this path without humbling themselves before Jesus will face and eternity separated from Him.

For us to grow and operate in the wisdom of God requires that we abide in Him daily and spend time daily in prayer and the study of God’s word.  The more time we spend in the Lord’s presence the more we simply grow in His wisdom.  He constantly draws us near through the Holy Spirit and as we draw near we are simply transformed.  Everything we need is found in Jesus and every answer is found in Jesus Christ.  May we abide and prepare our hearts daily for His soon return.
