Reason # 11: You can count it all joy because wisdom is calling you.

The uncertainty of our times places tremendous pressure on our lives physically and emotionally. As a result, there is an even greater demand for Godly wisdom and understanding. Indeed, the book of Proverbs begs the question, “Does not wisdom cry out and understanding lift up her voice” (Proverbs 8:1 NKJV).

True wisdom is a valuable treasure that comes only from God. Proverbs says that Godly wisdom will prosper those who love and embrace her. In essence, wisdom will bring the believer into God’s greater blessings. The benefits of Godly wisdom are prudence, understanding, excellent things, truth, avoiding wickedness, righteousness, knowledge, discretion, and above all the fear of the Lord.( Proverbs 8:5-8, 12-13 NKJV).

Wisdom is pleading for us to receive instruction. “Now therefore, listen to me, my children, for blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, and do not disdain it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, watching daily at my gates, waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me finds life, and obtains favor from the Lord” (Proverbs 8:32-35 NKJV).  Those who have ears to hear let them hear!
