How to acquire wisdom
You can ask, but you will need to execute faith and obedience to get it.
- Believe it
- Obey it
= Do it.
James 1:5-7 5 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. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.
Romans 10:17 So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Hebrews 4:2 For unto us was the gospel preached, as well as unto them: but the word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it.
James 2:17 Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone.
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Proverbs 2:6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
Psalm 111:10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endureth for ever.
