God gives wisdom, understanding and knowledge through His Word. We must seek His direction in everything that we do. By praying, we can ask God to enlighten us and open our spiritual understanding, to give us this prized possession. It is readily available. It is accessible. We can get it. We can grasp the wisdom that God gives. God speaks wisdom and knowledge. Once God speaks, it is our responsibility to hear.
Proverbs 2: 1-6 “(1) My son if thou wilt receive my word, and hide my commandments with thee; (2) So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; (3) Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; (4) If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hidden treasure; (5) Then shalt thou understand the fear of the Lord, and find the knowledge of God. (6) For the Lord giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”
Wisdom brings blessings. Accepting, listening to, and embracing wisdom also brings benefits. When you make your ear attentive to wisdom, when you hear God’s knowledge and apply it in your heart, it affects your life. Wisdom affects your choices and decisions. The results a believer can obtain from using wisdom depends on the level of that individuals fear of the Lord. Real wisdom is the fear of God. We must accept God’s words and keep His commandments turning our ears toward wisdom, and applying the concepts willingly to our hearts.
