Topic: Uncommon Wisdom Is Supernatural
Scripture: 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. James 1:5 (AMPC)
Surprisingly, many sophisticated and intelligent people lack wisdom and common sense. Wisdom and common sense are closely linked; Wisdom discerns truth in a situation, while common sense provides good judgment regarding what to do about the truth. Wisdom is supernatural—it isn’t taught by men; it is a gift from God.
It is amazing how many people seem to think that common sense is incompatible with being “spiritual.” Spiritual people don’t float around all day on clouds of glory, seeing angels and hearing disembodied voices.
You live in a real-world with real issues and need real answers. You do the seeking, and He does the speaking, but He is the Spirit of Wisdom and will not tell you to do things that are unwise.
If you need real answers in your life, wisdom is yours for the asking.
Prayer Starter: Father, thank You for imparting supernatural wisdom on me as one of Your children. Thank You for giving me real answers, amen.
