Wisdom Comes From God
Wisdom Comes From God
By Wayne McDonald

Proverbs 14:8 The wisdom [Godly wisdom, which is comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God] of the prudent is to understand his way, but the folly of [self-confident] fools is to deceive. Wisdom is the ability to use knowledge.

You can have all the knowledge in the world but if you don’t have wisdom it will do you know good. I know people that are very educated but have no wisdom and it appears like they are stuck in life. Wisdom comes from God He gives us the ability to take knowledge and apply it and make it work.

I am always looking for different investments. I study and do my homework and get out my calculator. I get knowledge in that era and then I ask the Lord for wisdom to carry it out. Over the years I have made a lot of money by asking God for wisdom before I made a move.

James 1:5 If any of you is deficient in wisdom, let him ask of the giving God [who gives] to everyone liberally and ungrudgingly, with out reproaching or faultfinding, and it will be given him. There is a wealthy man in the state of TX that has a reputation that every thing he touches turns to gold.

He moves very slowly but he makes the right disisions when he moves. He gets the wisdom of God first. If you have a business plan before you go any further lay it out before the Lord and ask Him for wisdom. God wants you to succeed in all that you do so take the time to ask for wisdom.
