Matthew 25:1-2(AMP) Then the kingdom of heaven shall be likened to ten virgins who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish (thoughtless, without forethought) and five were wise (sensible, intelligent, and prudent).
It is sad to see that not many people have wisdom and it is sadder that not many seek and desire wisdom. It is not good that the soul be without knowledge. (Prov 19:2). One of the worst things that can happen to any man is to be without wisdom. The Bible encourages us to seek wisdom. “Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom” (Prov 18:1 KJV).
Wisdom is gotten through a strong and consistent desire for it. It is not just given to anybody, but to those who sincerely want it. When we seek, we shall find. (See Prov 2:3-5). The next step to getting wisdom is by separating oneself to study and meditate on God’s word and on the issues of life in the light of God’s word on a regular basis.
So many believers suffer; so many can’t get hold of the blessings God has blessed them with because they lack wisdom. From our text, even a believer can go to hell just because of the lack of wisdom to do what is right. The Spirit of God is the source of wisdom. But this wisdom will not be released upon us if we don’t desire and seek it. The more we desire and seek wisdom from God’s word and in prayers, the more wisdom the Spirit of God releases to us.
Go into today with the desire to get wisdom. Ask of God, for He giveth liberally to any who lack wisdom. (See James 1:5)
Prayer: Father, I ask that You release upon me the spirit of wisdom, so that I may operate daily in Your wisdom. Amen.
