The Spirit of Wisdom

the spirit of wisdom

Exodus 28-29 Gifts are precious. They may be tangible, but not always. God told Moses about preparing the garments for the priests, and as He did, He specifically said that He had gifted chosen certain men with the spirit of wisdom. Paul told the Ephesians that he prayed that God would give them this same trait. What is that? Who needs it? Is it something only God gives?

The Apostle John told the inquiring disciples that after His departure, the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, would be sent to them from the Father and would cause them to remember everything He had said to them. The Holy Spirit is given to us by enlightening us or providing us with the spirit of wisdom as we study scripture. Paul prayed that God would give the Ephesians that gift along with revelation in their growing knowledge of him so they could know the hope of his calling and what is the incomparable greatness of his power.

When we accept Messiah, we are anointed with this trait. Pray and ask God to fill you with the spirit of wisdom so you can discern truth from error and so you will grow into maturity. Where do you need this spirit of wisdom today, and will you ask the Father to bestow that gift upon you?
