Wisdom is defined as the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment, otherwise known as the quality of being wise. Most of us assume that wisdom is gained over the years since we believe that the oldest people are also the wisest. I think that is important for us to go beyond thinking that wisdom is a trait and to look more closely at what wisdom really means. Wisdom is a spirit that is intelligent and certain. Wisdom pervades all other spirits because it is an aura of the might of God. Wisdom isn’t a mere trait but a spotless mirror of the power of God.

We all go through tough times in life whether it be a super stressful finals week, a loss of a job, or the passing of a loved one. During those stressful times it is easy for us to forget to seek the Lord for strength when we are weak. Sometimes in our daily lives we just need to take a break, take a deep breathe, and remember that the Lord endures forever and that his ordinances help us all.  During those tough times don’t forget that the revelations of God’s words shed light that gives us understanding. God is always among us whether we feel his presence or not.

Just to leave you with one final thought, “And she, who is one, can do all things.”
