Proverbs 2:6-7
For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly. [KJV]

'Wisdom is the principal thing'. These are the words of King Solomon in Proverb 4:7. His own story is one of the best confirmation of this truth.

When Solomon became king of Israel at a very tender age, he went to God in worship. And then God gave him the opportunity to make a request in prayer. Solomon asked for wisdom and in addition to wisdom, God gave to Solomon wealth, riches, honor, power. (See 2 Chro 1:6-12). His story proves that indeed, wisdom is the principal thing.

The book of Proverbs which King Solomon wrote showed how readily God wants to give wisdom to any man who would ask.  Proverbs 1:20 says 'Wisdom crieth without; she uttereth her voice in the streets'. If it is in the streets, it must be available for all. There is a general kind of wisdom available for all men. Most unbelievers even do well here than even children of God. (See Luke 16:8).

However, there is a higher wisdom for the believer in Christ. Our main text today distinguishes the kind of wisdom God gives to the righteous from the one available for all men. It is called 'Sound Wisdom'. James tells us it is ours for the asking. And he went on to show us how to ask right. (See James 1:5-8). This is the advantage of the believer in Christ. We have unparalleled access to wisdom because Christ is the very wisdom of God.

With wisdom, life becomes a regular miracle. With wisdom, a man can hardly be stranded. With wisdom; stress, sweat and tears are greatly minimized. Life is indeed good for the wise.

Go to God in prayer this morning and ask Him for wisdom. Amen.
