True Wisdom

“For the Lord gives wisdom, and from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Proverbs 2:6).

“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God” (1 Corinthians 1:18).

True wisdom comes from God. Plain and simple. People can try all they want to find it elsewhere, but it cannot be found anywhere else or in anyone else. The Lord alone gives wisdom.

So where can we find this wisdom? Both of these passages are talking about the message found in the Bible. If you look to the Bible you will find the very Word of God. There you will find the answers to the deep questions of life, meaning, salvation and eternity.

But don’t expect everyone to accept the wisdom of God. Indeed the world sees the message of salvation as foolishness. It is the Spirit of God who draws a person and reveals the Lord, the King of glory, and the message of the gospel. “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him, and I will raise him up at the last day” (John 6:44).

    bout 3 years ago I dropped into a black hole – four months of absolute terror. I wanted to end my life, but somehow [Holy Spirit], I reached out to a friend who took me to hospital. I had three visits [hospital] in four months – I actually thought I was in hell. I imagine I was going through some sort of metamorphosis [mental, physical & spiritual]. I had been seeing a therapist [1994] on a regular basis, up until this point in time. I actually thought I would be locked away – but the hospital staffs were very supportive [I had no control over my process]. I was released from hospital 16th September 1994, but my fear, pain & shame had only subsided a little. I remember this particular morning waking up [home] & my process would start up again [fear, pain, & shame]. No one could help me, not even my therapist [I was terrified]. I asked Jesus Christ to have mercy on me & forgive me my sins. Slowly, all my fear has dissipated & I believe Jesus delivered me from my “psychological prison.” I am a practicing Catholic & the Holy Spirit is my friend & strength; every day since then has been a joy & blessing. I deserve to go to hell for the life I have led, but Jesus through His sacrifice on the cross, delivered me from my inequities. John 3: 8, John 15: 26, are verses I can relate to, organically. He’s a real person who is with me all the time. I have so much joy & peace in my life, today, after a childhood spent in orphanages [England & Australia]. God LOVES me so much. Fear, pain, & shame, are no longer my constant companions. I just wanted to share my experience with you [Luke 8: 16 – 17].

    Peace Be With You
