Jesus told us to Ask, Seek and Knock ( Matthew 7:7-8 & Luke 11:9-10) we do not just wait passively for things to happen and ignore or dismiss what is important for our Spiritual Maturity and one of the most impotent things we are to ask for is God’s Wisdom and His empowering by The Holy Spirit, none of us were Born with them, yes we all lack them but it takes a humble spirit to acknowledge our need of them and sadly many profess to be wise because of their worldly learning and so they Trust in their own understanding and others Trust in what they teach and so are deceived.
1 Corinthians 3:18-20 Let no man deceive himself, if any man among you seemeth to be wise in this World let him become a fool that he may be Wise. For the wisdom of this World is foolishness with God. For it is written; He taketh the wise in their own craftiness. And again; The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise that they are vain.
Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding, in all thy ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes fear the Lord and depart from evil.
The importance of asking for God’s Wisdom which is the Principle thing in getting His understanding with His empowering by The Holy Spirit, is we can than understand His Truth and having received we are than not deceived by False Teachers, Cults and error in Translations but we are not to doubt we have received them and keep asking, to do so means we are unstable and can be deceived, we Thank God instead and Trust Jesus our only Spiritual Teacher to lead us into all understanding.
Matthew 10:26-28 Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known. What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light and what ye hear in the ear that preach ye upon the housetops (KJV)… perhaps our Computers today?
If you love the Scriptures like I do and value their importance in our Lives with them all being inspired by God and also love to share them, there are many more Scriptures on the Link and below, which also gives us God’s Truth in asking for His Wisdom and Empowering.
James 1:5-6 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith nothing wavering, for he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
Luke 11:13 If ye then being evil know how to give good gifts unto your Children how much more shall your Heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him?
Colossians 2 :2 -3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in Love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
1John 2:26-28 These things have I written unto you concerning them that seduce you. But the anointing which ye have received of Him abideth in you and ye need not that any man teach you but as the same anointing Teacheth you of all things and is Truth and is no lie, and even as it hath Taught you, ye shall abide in Him.
The Scripture below is very important in understanding the Empowering of The Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 2:9-16 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man the things which God hath prepared for them that Love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit for the Spirit searcheth all things yea, the deep things of God. For what man knoweth the things of a man save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the World but the Spirit which is of God that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth but which the Holy Ghost teacheth comparing spiritual things with Spiritual. But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God for they are foolishness unto him neither can he know them because they are Spiritually discerned. But he that is Spiritual judgeth all things yet he himself is judged of no man. For who hath known the Mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him? but we have the Mind of Christ.
