Jesus is Wisdom

Proverbs 4:7-9 says that:

“The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire wisdom;
And with all your acquiring, get understanding.
Prize her, and she will exalt you;
She will honor you if you embrace her.
She will place on your head a garland of grace;
She will present you with a crown of beauty.”

Jesus is wisdom, so if you replace “wisdom” with “Jesus” this is how it reads:

“The beginning of wisdom is: Acquire Jesus;
And with all your acquiring, get understanding.
Prize Jesus, and He will exalt you;
Jesus will honor you if you embrace Him.
He will place on your head a garland of grace;
He will present you with a crown of beauty.”

Jesus is Wisdom. Jesus is the answer. Proverbs 8:12-36 is another picture of Jesus. Jesus is the personification of Wisdom. In Jesus is power and counsel. By Jesus kings reign. all who seek Jesus will find Him. His fruit is better than gold. He was with God from the beginning. He was the Master Workman of creation. He delights in the sons of man. He blesses those who listens to Him, and He is life.

One day when I was in the throes of extreme pain due to nerve damage, I questioned God on this. I said, “If Jesus is the answer, then what do I do when He is not enough?” The answer is to go deeper in with Jesus. Think about it for a minute. Jesus took all of the disciples to the Garden of Gethsemene. Then He took Peter, James, and John in with Him a little deeper, then He went deeper still by Himself as He pleaded with God. I went deeper in with Jesus, praying, reading, praising, and being in God’s presence during that time of forced bed rest and pain. Jesus was enough! Jesus is wisdom – all the wisdom that i needed. My faith grew, my understanding grew, my love for Jesus grew!

Proverbs says that wisdom starts by getting wisdom. Jesus is Wisdom. Get Jesus, but then hold on and get more and more and more of Him. He will comfort, correct, challenge, and love you through anything this life can throw at you.

He has been enough through anger, depression, pain, surgeries, moves, loneliness, failures, successes, changes of all kinds, and He has brought great joy!

Hint for the Day: Teach your children that Jesus is as real as you are. They can talk to Him, walk with Him, complain to Him, and sing to Him. He hears! He cares! He answers prayers!
