I don't think anyone can have too much wisdom. Godly wisdom that is. I think the more Godly wisdom one seeks and obtains the more one realizes how little we know, how insignificant we are in the big picture, how gracious our God is that He cares about every hair on our heads....
And I love Proverbs. I never fail to find some new morsel of much needed wisdom when reading through it. I have heard it said that there are 31 chapters of Proverbs, one for each day of the month. And I think this is an awesome plan for myself to start this year in my quest for seeking wisdom. However, there is so much more wisdom in the pages of the bible and to find it is my goal this year. To seek it out and get to know it better and have it be a part of my being.
In James 1 vs 5 it says: If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [Who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, without reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him.
It goes on further to say in vs 6: Only it must be in faith that he asks with no wavering (no hesitating, no doubting). For the one who wavers (hesitates, doubts) is like the billowing surge out at sea that is blown hither and thither and tossed by the wind.
I believe from these verses that God wants me to seek out His wisdom and in doing so, if I seek in faith, He will give liberally and willingly.
Yes, I want to be wise. It would certainly help in my day to day life because I definitely could do with a BIG dose of wisdom most days. There have been those older women in my life over the years who have exuded that grace and wisdom and quiet confidence that comes from spending lots of time with God, and who have gotten through the good times and the bad, with God. And I have always thought that I would like to be like that one day. I want to be a woman that other women look to for wisdom and grace and acceptance, and love, and guidance in their life walk.
