Memorize: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraifeth not; and it shall be given him. James 1:5
Read: Daniel 1:18-20
18 Now at the end of the days that the king had said he should bring them in, then the prince of the eunuchs brought them in before Nebuchadnezzar.
19 And the king communed with them; and among them all was found none like Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah: therefore stood they before the king.
20 And in all matters of wisdom and understanding, that the king enquired of them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and astrologers that were in all his realm.
Bible in one year: 1st Chronicles 25:27, Ezekiel 33:21-29


1. Wisdom is the quality of discerning what is true, what is ethically right, and what should be done in different situations.
2. Wisdom is fundamentally practical in nature.
3. Although God alone possesses wisdom in the absolute sense, as benevolent God, He is willing to give His wisdom to all those who seek it in humble reverence (James 1:5). We see the wisdom of God manifested in the work of creation and in the provision of redemption from sin through Jesus Christ.
4. Divine wisdom refers to the abilities given by God in every area of life including recognising and applying the provision of salvation through Christ Jesus, craftsmanship, knowledge and insight for right decisions in life, and several others.
5. Divine wisdom cannot be received by those who put their confidence in worldly wisdom, which is based on human cleverness and insight without God’s revelation.
6. God considers this human kind of wisdom to be foolishness. It may produce temporary success in life, but this will come to nothing in the long run. 1st Corinthians 3:19-20 says, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.”
7. Worldly wisdom builds pride and false hope in people, so much so that it makes them arrogate success to themselves to the exclusion of the Almighty God (Proverbs 26:12, Isaiah 47:10). In Isaiah 29:14, God has declared that worldly wisdom shall perish.
8. Wisdom has its roots in knowledge.
9. Wisdom is the ability to correctly make use of acquired knowledge.
10. Divine wisdom leads to proper conduct because it is built on the fear of God (Job 28:28).
11. One of the dimensions that the Holy Spirit operates in is wisdom (Isaiah 11:2).
12. Those who desire to possess divine wisdom will therefore need to cultivate an intimate relationship with Him (Proverbs 1:20-26).
13. The Holy Spirit can fill a man’s heart with divine wisdom through the diligent study of God’s word (Psalms 19:7).
14. He can also give divine wisdom through revelation. This revelation can come in the place of observing how others live their lives, or through the study of nature.
15. Wisdom may also be received as a result of practical experiences of life and from parental guidance.
16. Divine wisdom can only be received by those who are willing to give up all reliance on their own human insight and understanding.
17. As you seek for divine wisdom by one or a combination of ways mentioned here, God will answer you and fill you up with His divine wisdom in Jesus’ Name.



As rightly defined by Pastor E.A ADEBOYE in today’s devotional “Wisdom has its roots in knowledge. Wisdom is the ability to correctly make use of acquired knowledge” . However, divine wisdom is greatly beyond human wisdom and the only source of acquisition of such wisdom is from the Almighty God. Also if we genuinely engage with the person of the Holy Spirit, having divine revelation will not be a challenge to us. Believers can’t accomplish much without divine wisdom as the Bible says Ecclesiastes 10:10 “Wisdom is profitable to direct. Hence, being able to consistently inquire and acquire from God is greatly profitable for decision making. God bless Pastor E.A Adeboye for blessing us with the word of God daily in Jesus name.
