Above all else, I want wisdom

Genesis 47:13-31

Joseph possessed wisdom like no one else during his lifetime. All you have to do is read Genesis 47:13-31 to get a vivid picture of that. He saved an entire nation of people from starvation and suffering. And at the same time, increased Pharaoh's strength and position as the country's leader, as well as preserving the country of Egypt as a major force in the world. Impressive.

Proverbs 2:6 tells us that "The Lord gives wisdom." Joseph didn't have the luxury of a Bible to hear from God. We do. So how can we use this incredible resource to gain wisdom? Tami W.

P.S. If you're looking for some good instruction on wisdom, take a look at Proverbs 2:1-10.

God promises to give us wisdom, if we ask for it. It is up to us to ask, and then use it. If we want to know what wisdom is, as you said, Tami, we have God's word to research / study.

Study! Pray! Study And Pray!!! We have to meditate on His Word day and night and engrave It IN our hearts! Like Solomon (1 Kings 4:28-29) and James (James 1:5), we just need to ask God and trust Him to give it to us.

As it reads in Proverbs 2:10 NKJV, ''When wisdom enters your heart, And knowledge is pleasant to your soul'';for me, God's wisdom is ever ever so slowly seeping into my heart and the knowledge I am soaking in is so very pleasant to my soul. I received Jesus Christ as my Savior almost 3 years ago now and it's only been recent months that suddenly my eyes are wide open when reading His Word and I find myself nodding my head up and down and saying silently to Him, ''I see, I see''. This source should be used to relay the Good News where and whenever possible. (I did say that I see, I did not say that I understand always)

I like Kanj comments about "I see it, but not really understanding" and Janice comments about "God promises to give us wisdom, if we ask for it. It is up to us to ask, and then use it..". I am one of those people who just assume that, if you ask, you should recieve, NOW. But it doesn't work so easly. For the Lord's reason, I am one of the many who have to wait and be greatful that he love me enought to know what I need. Oh,I have just now realize that waiting is a form of wisdom. So I guess I need to pray for patience and more understanding.
