King Solomon, of whom besides Christ was the wisest of men who’ve walked this earth, of whom The LORD said, “I give you a wise and discerning mind, so that none like you has been before and none like you shall arise after you.” (1 Kings 3:12) This Solomon says in Ecclesiastes 7:23-24, “All this I have tested by wisdom. I said, “I will be wise” but it was far from me. That which has been is far off and who can find it out?” There was knowledge the Lord had limited Solomon to, to keep him from a type of pride most likely. The wise king confesses there were things God had not revealed to him, things which were only known to the Lord (Deuteronomy 29:29) which leaves us to conclude the only obviously truth; The Lord himself watches over wisdom and alone decides who gets it. Not a wisdom in which the world can obtain through experience as we learn there is a wisdom which comes from The Lord alone, (James 3:17).

To what then shall we do with such information? We must seek the wisdom which comes alone from the hand of our Lord as the bible would have us seek it which is to “seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures” because “then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” (Proverbs 2:4-5) God commands us to seek wisdom and to have it if we are going to serve Him correctly. In fact, we are told “he who fails to find me (wisdom) injures himself.” (Proverbs 8:36) Say to God, “I am your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies!” (Psalm 119:125). Grant me this wisdom Lord!
