How To Be Filled With Wisdom – There’s Only One Way

March 22

“…that you may be filled
with the knowledge of his will
in all wisdom and spiritual understanding…”
Colossians 1:9

How is one filled with the knowledge of God’s will? How is one filled with wisdom and understanding?

If ever you come across a believer who IS filled with the knowledge of God’s will, who IS filled with wisdom and understanding, know that he has sought after it. It doesn’t come naturally.

“But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God,
for they are foolishness to him, nor can he know them,
because they are spiritually discerned.”
1 Corinthians 2:14

The natural person is not ABLE to receive the things of the Spirit of God. He cannot, because the things of God are spiritually discerned. Until a person is born again he is not ABLE to receive the truths of God.

So why then, do you go to counselors who have not God’s Spirit nor his wisdom? The greatest counselor on earth will steer you wrong because only God can give the correct guidance for you life. He alone understands you to the core. He alone holds the issues of your life. He created you, he chained together your unique DNA. Chase after a man or woman who you think can guide you if you must, but know that the guidance will only be the opinions of a man. Go to a different counselor and you’ll likely get a different answer.

Finding wisdom requires the born-again person to spend time pursuing it. Think of the effort you put into those things that are most important to you. You don’t tire of it, you relentlessly go after it. If you desire wisdom you must seek after it relentlessly by spending TIME with God, and by immersing yourself in his Word daily. There is no other way.
