Wisdom, Understanding and Knowledge

Proverbs 22-24; Romans 14

“By wisdom a house is built and through understanding it is established, through knowledge it rooms are filled with rare and beautiful treasures.”

Proverbs 24:3, 4

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. As we submit to God’s will and ways, we position ourselves for God’s building work in our lives and the ministries he calls us to. Understanding comes as we are led and taught by the Spirit. As we apply God’s truth and ways in our lives and relationships, we grow. Knowledge applied is like a treasure that marks our lives and is noticed by all who visit with us or the ministries we lead. For lives or ministries to grow, we require wisdom, understanding and knowledge. We acquire wisdom from God, understanding from the Spirit, and knowledge from God’s Word, the example of others and God’s revelation to us. 

“Lord Jesus, thank you for wisdom, understanding and knowledge. Help me grow in these gifts through the guidance of your Spirit, your Word and others.”
