Wisdom And Length Of Days

July 8, 2011

According to the scripture happiness comes from wisdom and the only good wisdom is that of the Lord.  The scripture said that length of days is in one hand and riches and honor.  Solomon only got one, but why if He had wisdom?

In 1 Kings the Lord told Solomon, “…if you walk in My ways, to keep My statues and My commandments…then I will lengthen your days.”  Notice anything different?  Because Solomon was under the old covenant the only way to be fully blessed was to perfectly keep the law which was impossible.  So because he could not, his days were not lengthened, which is in wisdom’s right hand.

However, the great news is that today, because we are under the new covenant of grace, Jesus is at the Father’s right hand and He is our wisdom.  And when we have Jesus, we can be blessed with the two hands of wisdom because of His finished work on the cross.  This means that riches and honor, as well as length of days, belong to us!  What an awesome God we serve!

If you pursue Jesus, you will experience wisdom in every area of your life.  You cannot try to earn, deserve or study to acquire God’s wisdom.  It comes by His unmerited favor.  His wisdom will give you good success and to succeed in whatever you do.  Whatever your crisis today depend on the Lord for His wisdom.  There are no “real problems”, only “idea problems.”  Trust that the Lord will bless you with the wisdom from heaven to cause everything that you touch to prosper.

Happy is the man who finds wisdom, and the man who gains understanding…Length of days is in her right hand, in her left hand riches and honor.   —   Proverbs 3:13-16

Because of Jesus’ finished work on the cross, riches and honor, as well as length of days, belong to us!
