Introduction to Wisdom Study
In praying about the best way to beging this study, there were times when I found myself debating with the Lord as to whether or not to begin with an in-depth "Word" study in the Hebrew - or to just ask questions of each one of you (and myself) what the word "wisdom" means in our own life. But, He kept leading me back to two specific passages to share with you as an introduction to "Obtaining Wisdom".
We will see, during these next couple of months of study in this series on "Obtaining Wisdom", that we will actually be learning about life changing applications of Biblical Truths.Wisdom, Knowledge, Discernment, Understanding, all flow together. Often times the same root word is translated into these various words.
It is my deepest desire for us to prayerfully consider what God, Himself, has to say about wisdom, and that, during our times of study here together, He will guide us into a clearer understanding of what roll wisdom can have in our lives as we learn to study and apply all that He chooses to share with us through His Word.
"Father, God, it is with fear and trembling that I come before You in putting together this next study series. I ask, Lord, by Your Holy Spirit to prepare our hearts to receive all that You have for us, and that You would open up our eyes to see and our minds to understand the application of Your Word to our day to day lives. Father, You, alone, know my heart, and the hearts of those how are joining in on this study. Show us how to grow in Your wisdom, and how to continue to walk wisely in accordance with Your word, bringing all glory and honor to Your Precious Name. Amen."
In preperation for our journey on the path to obtain wisdom, our homework assignment is to get a fresh notebook. The first thing I would like us to do is to write out what man says "Wisdom" means (use whatever resources you have on hand, dictionaries, reference books, school books, etc.). Next, read Proverbs 8 completely through - two or three times would be great, cross referencing in a modern translation as well as a standard (King James or Revised Standard), making notes about how wisdom is portrayed within these passages.
Next week we will be doing some "word" studies into the root Hebrew words used to translate into our Bibles, and their various meanings, so if you are anxious to get started, feel free to get out your Strongs Concordance, and Lexicons and begin to dig for yourselves!
This will be an interactive study, and I am looking forward to your comments. If you have any questions, or comments along the way, please, feel free to use the 'comments' section. May you be blessed as you go forth serving our Lord Jesus Christ in all you do.
