Y’all don’t make a deal of my title. I’m just making a joke not trying to cause a gender stir. But to be clear The Bible says that Jesus is truth and proverbs refers to wisdom as “she” numerous times.
I have found myself going from one extreme to the other since George Floyd died. I’ve been told to speak out, I’ve been told to be silent, I’ve been told to educate myself, I’ve been told my sources are all wrong. It’s a hot mess out there. Honestly, I have had a very hard time as of late finding peace and joy. So I stepped away. Stepped away from what the world was shouting and stepped away from all of the fingers pointed in a thousand different directions.
I know truth to be absolute. It is not relative. It does not shift or change. Truth is the same yesterday, today and forever. Because truth has a name and his name is Jesus. He gives wisdom freely and abundantly if only you ask. If you seek him you will find him when you seek him with your whole heart. So if you are like me; looking to understand, gain insight and trying to discern what is good and right and fair, if you are trying to make sense of the hot mess that our world is today, you need only look in one place, the right place.
“The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his instructions have good insight.”
Psalms 111:10a CSB
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
Proverbs 2:6 CSB
“Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God — who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly — and it will be given to him.”
James 1:5 CSB
“It is from him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom from God for us — our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption—”
1 Corinthians 1:30 CSB
“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peace-loving, gentle, compliant, full of mercy and good fruits, unwavering, without pretense.”
James 3:17 CSB
“Wisdom is supreme — so get wisdom. And whatever else you get, get understanding.”
Proverbs 4:7 CSB
I think you are beginning to get my point.
His word is life. It’s bread, and water, and breath. It gives wisdom and insight and understanding.
