DAY 19 TUESDAY: MARCH 2019

GENUINE WISDOM IS FROM GOD!

For I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist (Luke 21:15).

Genuine wisdom can only come from God. The wisdom of man no matter how sound and reasonable is foolishness unto God. Genuine wisdom comes from above with godly characteristics; while worldly wisdom comes from beneath with devilish characteristics (James 3:15-17). The Bible says in the opening text that I will give you a mouth and wisdom which all your adversaries will not be able to contradict or resist. Of course, the source and giver of genuine wisdom is God, the Omniscient who is the Creator of heaven and earth.

Many a time, even among some so called Christians, we make reference to the adage, “The words of our elders! Are the words of wisdom!” This adage, no matter how good and reasonable it may sound, it goes contrary to God’s Word. That is why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 3:19, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, ‘He catches the wise in their own craftiness.” The wisdom of the wisest man on earth without Jesus Christ is indeed foolishness unto God because genuine wisdom is embedded in Christ.

Genuine wisdom can never be gotten by experience or age because it is a gift from God. You can never compare the wisdom of Jesus Christ to that of Methuselah, the oldest man on earth who lived for 969 years old (Genesis 5:27). That is the reason why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 1:30, “But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who become for us wisdom from God- and righteousness and sanctification and redemption.” Indeed, the Wise Men in the Bible when Jesus Christ was born became wise when they sought after the baby Jesus in the Manger.

Daily Tip: The wisdom of God is found in the Person of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who is the Author, Finisher, Alpha, Omega and Omniscient of life. Shalom!

Golden Text: And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the Synagogue. And many hearing Him were astonished, saying, “Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! (Mark 6:2).
