Wisdom With God

For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth [cometh] knowledge and understanding. – Proverbs 2:6

Think about the above verse for just a moment. From where does wisdom come?

As you look at the verse from a grammatical perspective, do you notice the colon that comes after “wisdom”? In this case what we see is the colon being used to separate two independent clauses, the second explaining or illustrating the first. Wisdom comes from the mouth of God, and that wisdom is His knowledge and understanding.

Now, take a moment and think about John 1:1.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”

What does John 1:14 say?

“And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.”

Is it beginning to make sense? Let’s talk about it in the comment section.
