Proverbs 2:6


6 For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 8 Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones. 9 Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course.






Proverbs 2:6




James 1:5, God gives wisdom. All we have to do is ask for it. Solomon answered God in prayer and asked for wisdom, not earthly things. We probably all start out with long lists of things we would like to have in this life, not realizing that things are provided liberally from God. Even unbelievers receive sustenance in this world. They have air to breath, water to drink, jobs to provide an income and so forth. And it all comes from God none the less.

The source of all knowledge and wisdom comes from God. All scripture is God breathed. The Holy Spirit provides communication of the scripture to the writers of scripture, and to the hearers of scripture.

God provides His Word for our instruction, our edification, our satisfaction, our protection. He is a shield impenetrable and strong and will freely protect us from all outward attacks. God makes it very clear that He and only He is the source of knowledge and truth. He reveals to those who are positive, and He reveals in His discretion. He did not reveal the source of atomic power in centuries past but only in the last few decades. Remember that God decides when each person will be born into this world. Thus he controls the discovery of technology by those whom He allows to enter into this world at their appointed time. Man does not discover knowledge on their own.

There are two types of knowledge, worldly and spiritual. The spiritual is of course the most important and around which everything else revolves. Worldly knowledge in the sciences, medicines, arts, engineering, space exploration and more, is merely a discovery of that which God created in eternity past. Learning about the components of creation will not secure ones eternal life. It might make us a little more comfortable, might give us a few more conveniences in life, but it will not solve the problem of the soul, of the sin nature within us. Only Gods spiritual knowledge can do that. And only God is the source of that information.

God stores up sound wisdom. He provides a reservoir of truth for our spiritual feasting pleasure. The scriptures have been available in some form in every generation since Adam. As you learn and grow up spiritually, you become a store house of Gods wisdom from within your own soul. The information is available to you for your own recall and application to life. Through the power of His Spirit, which is the power of our blessing and protection from within the sphere of His fellowship, comes the blessing, prosperity, protection, as well as challenges in life. Challenges which prepare you rather than beat you. Look to difficulties as learning opportunities. As a time when you can glorify God by means of your faith application of the doctrine you know, as you let God solve the problem.

From within His power sphere we have Gods protection and preservation in times of trouble. We will not escape trouble in this world, because this world is filled with problems, but by Gods grace and your spiritual growth, you will sail through the storms with ease.

You wil have a clear understanding of life. You will have discernment with respect to right and wrong, but more than that, you will be able to clearly see the negative course that the propaganda of this world presents. In the newspapers, television, radio, movies, magazines, books, schools, workplace, there is a never ending barrage of worldly viewpoint. Advertising constantly pumps at your vanity, your lusts and desires, tempting you with this thing or that. With doctrine you learn to distinguish between these appeals to your vanity or peer pressures.

With doctrine you will be able to steer a Godly course, a course of Gods righteousness, a course protected by Gods justice. No one gets away with anything. Though many try to have their own way and even appear to be successful in getting away with everything, we have already seen from the last proverb, that they are only digging a deeper pit for themselves. God protects the believer, the positive believer who is advancing to maturity and continually in fellowship, within the power and might fortress of Gods presence.

And equity. God levels out the playing field for us all. In this world we have many inequities. Some have silver spoons, others not. Some have high IQ’s, others not. Some have talent and others not. The entertainment field, the sports field are classic examples of people with special talents, but they make up a very small fraction of a percentage of the world population. The rest of us 99.99% end up buying their products and paying for their success. Many people live in difficult environments, difficult neighborhoods. Many of us have medical handicaps. This world is filled with inequities with one winner and many losers. But God gives us all a fair chance. Your attitude is all that is required of you. There is no spiritual IQ set aside for the few. But spiritual growth is available to all persons without exception. Spiritual growth is based on Gods Spirit communication to your human spirit and has nothing to do with our academic means of learning. God does all the work, we have but to sit back and benefit from it.





These studies are a part of the massive daily study web site at DailyBibeStudy.Org, and are written, so that you can come to Christ if you have not done so already, and therefore not be lost forever.

And if you have already believed in Christ, then these studies are written so you can learn and understand and grow in your spiritual life, so that you can come to the full knowledge of Christ, so that you can fulfill your meaning and purpose in life as God intended for you, and so you can qualify for a phenomenal eternal reward which you will have forever.

To ignore this opportunity to pursue a daily study means you will be incomplete, unfulfilled and you will lose out, big time.

The Daily Bible Study is online, making it possible as never before in all of human history, to advance in ones relationship with God, through Christ, and to complete yourself beyond your imagination.

But each person has to decide to make that commitment. No one else can study for you. You have to do that yourself.

Keep in the Word, Isa. 41:10.
