“The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the Lord is sure, making the wise the simple.”
Have you ever felt like a complete fool? My life is filled with countless times I have felt like an imbecile, feeling so embarrassed I just wanted to hide. God has a wonderful solution: study His law.
When we dive into the depths of God’s law (the Bible), we discover His truth, goodness, and wisdom. His reasoning begins to shape our own. If we daily seek to memorize and study God’s words then we absorb His wisdom. We, although fools, become wise.
Not only do we have David’s testimony of gaining wisdom from Scripture, but we also have a direct promise of wisdom.
“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
James states that the only stipulation to receiving wisdom is that we are unwavering; we know that God alone has the wisdom we desire and believe He is willing to give it to us if we ask. I am so grateful that God has said a fool like me can one day become wise.
