The Word of Wisdom

This next gift at times will work in conjunction with the word of knowledge. Sometimes all you need is a direct word of knowledge from the Holy Spirit and it will completely solve the problem or dilemma you are dealing with.

However, there will be other times that a word of knowledge will not be quite enough to solve the problem. This is where you will now need a word of wisdom. A word of wisdom will give you the ability to be able to properly apply the knowledge that you may already have on a particular situation.

In our article, “Seeking After the Knowledge of God,” we explain to you the difference between knowledge, understanding, and wisdom. For instance, if someone gives you a car manual that will show you how to rebuild a car engine, that manual will give you all of the actual knowledge you will need to learn how to do it. But all of that knowledge will not do you any good unless you first understand what you are reading.

If you can understand what you are reading, then the next and final step will be to have the actual wisdom to be able to actually rebuild a car engine out in your garage once you try and do it. All of that knowledge from the car manual, and all of that understanding of that knowledge will do you no good in real life if you do not have the wisdom to be able to apply that knowledge to a real life working situation.

This is why we all need words of wisdom from the Holy Spirit in our daily life, so we will know how to handle more complex types of problems or issues that can occur at a moment’s notice in our daily lives.

Here are some specific examples where we could receive words of wisdom direct from the Holy Spirit:

  1. You have just found out that your spouse has been cheating on you. You will now need God’s wisdom on exactly how to handle this crisis.
  2. Your boss has just given you a new tough assignment and you are not sure on how to get the job properly done. You will now need God’s knowledge and wisdom on how to get this new assignment successfully completed.
  3. Your finances have spiraled out of control and you will now need God’s guidance and wisdom on how to keep yourself out of bankruptcy.
  4. You have just been named in an unjust lawsuit and you will now need God’s wisdom on how to properly handle it.

As you can see, there are literally an infinite number of possibilities where you will need God’s wisdom to get you safely though the problem or dilemma you are now having to face.

Again, since our own human intelligence is so imperfect and so limited in its ability to apply real wisdom to handle and solve some of life’s real tough problems, we all need the wisdom of God flowing through our lives on a regular basis so we can handle and overcome many of life’s adversities that can get thrown our way at any time.

    according to James there are 4 Kinds of Wisdom Worldly, Fleshly(Human) Demonic, God’s Wisdom
    atheist themselves are also have deep knowledge and wisdom about science , they are also have understanding how to solve the problem etc..but this categories of wisdom are the line of a worldly or fleshly wisdom,, the wisdom and knowledge of God it talks about spiritual
    it has been revealed through you by the Holy Spirit in you the mysteries of Christ and of God and heaven and whether knowing what is right and what is good for us,
    David said the wisdom is hard to find like a treasures, in “Colossians 2;2-3 My goal is that they will be encouraged and knit together by strong ties of love. I want them to have full confidence because they have complete understanding of “GOD SECRET PLAN”, which is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. “””
    -its not easy to find God’s Wisdom” but instead you need to please him and ask about his wisdom.
    if you have a Wisdom you are wise man, a wise man just as always thinking to do to Observation, Realization and Analogize the environment nor surrounding as to discernment (GOOD AND EVIL) (do and don’t) (what is wrong and what is right way)
    if we are not wise enough we are foolish in the sight of him.

    The Wisdom is to determined what is the most important things to do while you on earth according to Solomon (Ecclesiastes) So I hated life, because the work that is done under the sun was grievous to me. All of it is meaningless,
    All your Hard work, all your dreams, all your successes in life was meaningless, like chasing in the wind. The Wisdom is to teach on how we are satisfied with God

    james 1:5 if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, …….i have an understanding that the verse speaks of the affairs of life, is available to everyone who ask for it. But that is not a supernatural manifestation of the word of wisdom.

    The Word of Wisdom is a revelation concerning the plans and the purposes in the mind of God.The word of wisdom to noah,concerning peril and future judgment on the world through a flood, and he build the ark to save his household (Gen. 6:13-18)
    The Word of Wisdom to Joseph through dreams concerning his future Gen.
    chapters 37-50

    General Wisdom………………………………….deal in the affairs of life
    Word of Wisdom…………………………………. supernatural
