An Intelligent Heart Acquires Knowledge

Updated on September 15, 2012

The heart of the prudent getteth knowledge; and the ear of the wise seeketh knowledge.Proverbs 18:15 (KJV)

An intelligent heart acquires knowledge, and the ear of the wise seeks knowledge. Proverbs 18:15 (ESV)

Are you hungry for knowledge? If you are then you should seek it. I always want to learn more stuff. We tend to learn more about things that interest us, we seem to remember it more. I like to learn about human behaviour (sin nature), and of course my interest is in the truths and promises of the bible. I also like to learn about health and healing. I have many interests and sometimes when I go to sleep my mind is racing. The bible says to pray for wisdom and God will give it liberally.


But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him. James 1:5 (NASV)

Maybe there is something particular that you need disernment and wisdom about. Pray about that one thing and wait for God to show you. Maybe it is about a particular situation or person and you are wondering why it is the way it is. Pray about it. God will give you wisdom liberally. Solomon asked for wisdom instead of riches. God gave him both. Of course if you are wise with life in general you can be wise with your finances, right? Wisdom is only one promise, there are many to seek and claim. Take hold of the promises of God today and you will be truly blessed.

      Wisdom certainly is something that we should desire, and as you said, God promises it for those who seek it. Thanks for a wonderful hub!

      Nice Hub. Wisdom is knowing the difference between knowledge that comes from God and lies. We need his guidance to help us differentiate between the two.
