Worldly Wisdom Versus God’s Wisdom

July 3, 2011

My friends you can depend on the Lord’s wisdom to succeed and wisdom from the Lord comes from His grace.  It is not something you can study for or acquire by your own doing, the wisdom of the Lord is not something that the world can have.  There is wisdom in the world but it is flawed because it is all based on what we need to do or change or accomplish to be able to succeed in this world.  Most books, coaches and advice is based on human wisdom which strengthens and builds up only in the flesh.

Wisdom from most books is what we call “self-help” but the reality is we do not need more of “self-help”, we need more of the Lord’s help.  The books and advice that we seek should be that of leaders who are encouraging us to look to Jesus and not ourselves.

As we read in Psalm 1 – blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly.  This means there is counsel in human wisdom but the man who does not walk according to the wisdom of the world is the man who is blessed.  However a few verses later it says that if a man has his delight in Jesus, and he meditates on Jesus day and night, “He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither, and whatever he does shall prosper.”

Make a decision to walk in the counsel of the godly and not in the counsel of the world, and you will see whatever you do prosper.  In Him you will find all the wisdom that pertains to life and the great news is there are plenty of men and women who are established in the truths of the new covenant of grace.

Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly…   —   Psalm 1:1

What we need is not more “self-help.”  What we need is the Lord’s help.
