God is Wise
Throughout Scripture, we learn that God is infinitely wise. • “O Lord, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches” (Ps 104:24). • “The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens” (Prov 3:19). • “Who would not fear thee, O King of the nations? For to thee doth it appertain: forasmuch as among all the wise men of the nations, and in all their kingdoms, there is none like unto thee” (Jer 10:7). • “Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his” (Dan 2:20).
Throughout Scripture, we learn that God is infinitely wise. • “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!” (Rom 11:33). • “To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen” (Rom 16:27). • “The foolishness of God is wiser than men” (1 Cor 1:25).
God knows all things
“Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite” (Ps 147:5). • “If our heart condemn us, God is greater than our heart, and knoweth all things” (1 Jn 3:20).
How does God’s knowledge affect me?
One: God knows everything about me. • “The very hairs of your head are all numbered” (Matt 10:30). • God knows what sins I commit. • “Thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly” (Matt 6:6). • “All things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do” (Heb 4:13). • God knows what I need to pray about. • “Your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matt 6:8). • Two: God knows the future as well as the past. • “Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God” (Acts 2:23). • “God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew” (Rom 11:2).
God knows more than man
God knows things we shall never know. • “The foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1 Cor 1:25). • Some things we shall never know include: • The inner workings of the universe. • The problem of pain & suffering. • When we are in intense pain, we often ask the question, “God, why me?” • Job 38:2-11.
We need to seek God’s wisdom
We are able to seek God’s wisdom through Scripture. • “Whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock” (Matt 7:24). • “From a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus” (2 Tim 3:15). • We must also ask God for wisdom. • “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him” (Js 1:5).
Human wisdom begins by honoring God. • “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Ps 111:10). • Are you honoring & reverencing God? • Are you wise?
