“Get” (literally: “own it”), wisdom and understanding! They go together. If we don’t “own it,” our feelings and circumstances will “own” (control) us! Wisdom is the knowledge of God’s word; understanding is assessing the situation based upon God’s sovereign authority! Where do we start?
- (Proverbs 9:10) “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.”
- (Proverbs 4:5-9) Get wisdom! Get understanding! Do not forget, nor turn away from the words of my mouth. Do not forsake her, and she will preserve you; Love her, and she will keep you.Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom. And in all your getting, get understanding. Exalt her, and she will promote you; She will bring you honor, when you embrace her. She will place on your head an ornament of grace; A crown of glory she will deliver to you.”
