Prayer for the Divine Wisdom
Bible Reading: James 3:13-18
“13 Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
14 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
18 And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.” James 3:13-18
Prayer for the divine wisdom is our focus and is one of the vital need for every Christian to succeed in their endeavour. Wisdom is a principal thing and everyone should admire to seek and find it all the times.
Divine is wisdom is also called the wisdom of God as well as spiritual wisdom. It is the wisdom in God, given by God, rooted in God and release for the children of God through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Shellie Warren once said: “Wisdom, especially spiritual wisdom, is not just about knowing what’s good for you, but applying that knowledge into your everyday life. When you do that, this is when you know that you are truly wise.”
According to James 3:13-18, the following are the characteristics of divine wisdom:
- Considerate. Wise people believe in the analogy of others first in their doing.
- Humility. Humility is the attitude of wise people. They don’t constantly boast, brag or demonstrate prideful behaviour.
- Peace-loving. Another powerful characteristic of wise people is peace-making. They don’t cause trouble or division, but always after a peaceful environment.
- Unbiassed. No favouritism in the attitude of the wise people. Their actions are fair and just.
- Merciful. People that are embedded with the wisdom of God are people that demonstrate concern, forgiveness, and kindness to others.
- Gentle. Gentlest is the standard of wise people, they respect others and take care of the poor anyone around them.
- Sincere. Sincerity is an anchor of wise people because they protect their integrity, very honest and genuine in their doing. They don’t allow dishonesty, insincere, or untrue attitudes in their endeavours.
- Good deeds. The upright and moral life is the desire of the wise people.
Anyone who desires to possess divine wisdom is expecting the above attitudes in his or her life. Mind you, all the above are among the fruits of the Spirit expecting us to bear. Galatians 5:22-23.
“…God’s wisdom, however, is shown to be true by its results.” Matthew 11:19 Goodnews version
