Trials and Tribs

We all claim to have “wisdom” yet it’s the least used word to appear in the Bible.


Trials and Tribs

It’s early Saturday morning and I have a lot to do today which primarily includes making someone happy. But before I start, I give thanks to God just to be able to sit and absorb the quiet. Wandering through the cobwebs that linger from the night, a thought has emerged on a partially cloudy morn. So pondering, I go to recover the stats and now my only question is, why?

We all claim to have “wisdom” yet it’s the least used word to appear in the Bible. Reading on, I ask, why would a word that means having knowledge be rarely used? Further, the Old Testament shows this most influential word of credibility about 166 times and the New Testament around 52 times.

Now perplexed at all the messages related to wisdom, my guess is it is kept in Siloam. Drawing a conclusion is like seeing the sun resonate in the clouds above. Asking for understanding, I seek a higher power. Knowing trials and tribulations are the passages we enter into, I ask for comprehension.

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (James 1:5)

Oddly enough, the older of the two Testaments used the word three times as much. Though for all intended purposes, I would think the writings would explore more the creativity of wisdom. There’s no explanation of the lack of interpretation. Feeling a chill from my discovery, I’m wondering where wisdom comes from. It’s certainly not connected to teeth like they were pulled out when I was young. But the trials and tribs we experience gives us all a gift to share.

Trials and Tribs 2

Every morning that I wake, I ask God for the wisdom to make it through the day. Like to study the heavens or a faraway land, I’m reaching to learn or comprehend.

Wisdom, the application of God’s word, is that which gives us common sense and productive choices. It is the beginning and the end of fearing God and thus obedience to His word.

I pray you will be blessed with His infinite wisdom too! As the word “OK” is utilitarian, wisdom is the language of experience in any country.

Related Verse:

Blessed is the one who finds wisdom, and the one who gets understanding, for the gain from her is better than gain from silver and her profit better than gold. She is more precious than jewels, and nothing you desire can compare with her. Long life is in her right hand; in her left hand are riches and honor. Her ways are ways of pleasantness, and all her paths are peace. … (Proverbs 3: 13-18)

What you are reading on my website is the result of a miracle from God. I am not a writer, though I am a messenger. God took a very dyslexic guy from Severna Park, Maryland, who never read or wrote a thing, and told me I was going to write messages to share with others. I do not have a degree, and English was my poorest subject. Trust me, it's only through God that I write. As you read, understand that we all have the ability to receive the gifts that Christ would like us to have, gifts from God. It happened to me, it can happen to you. Let God enter your soul and rule your spirit!
