Proverbs 2:6-8 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.
We understand that wisdom is the merging of life experience and truth. When merged, wisdom comes forward to make sense of future experiences and truth. Wisdom is given from this process by God himself. For His people wisdom becomes the guide for making decisions and having good relationships. Only God gives divine wisdom. It is not created by you and I.
Once wisdom is given to us by God, He protects it for our use throughout our life time. His wisdom becomes a shield to protect us from the world and the foolishness that passes in the world as wisdom. God gives and God nurtures the wisdom planted within us.
We can take comfort in our lives in knowing that what God gives to us He also maintains. As His children his desire is for our nurture and growth. His wisdom is present for us to utilize in our day to day activities at home, work or play. Having His wisdom enables us to live in these circles with integrity of heart. We can live with a measure of peace and joy in knowing that God is overseeing, providing and protecting us by His wisdom within us. That is good news for the believer.
