… I want them to have complete confidence that they understand God’s mysterious plan, which is Christ himself. In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Colossians 2:2b-3 (NLT)

Jesus said,
Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. John 17:3

Our goal is to grow in the true knowledge of Christ. A complete confidence in Christ results in spiritual growth. I believe I speak for most of us when I say that we need more confidence in Christ, more understanding, and more wisdom and knowledge.

Where’s the wisdom? To grow in your relationship with Christ is wisdom. That’s where knowledge is. “All the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” are hidden in Him. Those treasures of wisdom and knowledge are there waiting to be unlocked as you grow in knowing your Savior and Lord.

The increase of wisdom from the Lord in your life is proportionate to the consistency and depth of your relationship with Him.

We need His wisdom in so many areas of our lives: personal life, marriage, family, career, finances, ministry, and relationships in general. You have a choice to grow in wisdom or not. How much do you desire the wisdom of Christ? I see a great need in my life for His wisdom.

Increase your time with Christ and your wisdom will increase.

  1. This message opened my eyes and heart concerning Christ's wisdom. I love my quiet time with Him...but do I love Him as much during the noisy moments in my life? Do I extend that open invitation to listen to his wisdom or do I send Him an invitation at my convenience and expect an immediate RSVP? Yes it is time to add to my spiritual tool box a "Ruler", and measuring tape. Lord, today is a new beginning in which I need to be more aware of how I measure my willingness to grow in your wisdom. Without your wisdom my measurements for building a strong foundation as a Christan will crumble like a glass house built on sharp rocks in the midst of a raging storm. Forgive me for thinking there must be a specific time to my mind, my eyes, and my heart so that I might learn from you every breath that I take. You are my Father, my teacher and my Savior and I give you all the honor, praise and glory for all that I have learned and will continue to learn in the future.
