EXPERIENCE:  Today I was wondering why the Lord didn’t just tell us what to do when we need to make decisions.  It would be so much simpler!


HEARDIf any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God.


James 1

But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double- minded man, unstable in all his ways.


I was inspired when I looked up the word wisdom.  It means that we use our intellect to gain knowledge and experience and then sum it up with proverbs and sayings (maxims). 




g4678. σοφία sophia; from 4680; wisdom (higher or lower, worldly or spiritual): — wisdom.

AV (51)- wisdom 51;

 wisdom, broad and full of intelligence; used of the knowledge of very diverse matters the wisdom which belongs to men spec. the varied knowledge of things human and divine, acquired by acuteness and experience, and summed up in maxims and proverbs the science and learning the act of interpreting dreams and always giving the sagest advice the intelligence evinced in discovering the meaning of some mysterious number or vision skill in the management of affairs devout and proper prudence in intercourse with men not disciples of Christ, skill and discretion in imparting Christian truth the knowledge and practice of the requisites for godly and upright living supreme intelligence, such as belongs to God to Christ the wisdom of God as evinced in forming and executing counsels in the formation and government of the world and the scriptures


Proverbs 1

The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel: 2 To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, 3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity; 4 To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion — 5 A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, 6 To understand a proverb and an enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.



AV (5)- pacified 1, appeased 1, set 1, asswage 1, cease 1;

 to subside, abate, decrease ( Qal) to abate ( Hiphil) to allay

 h7919. שָׂכַל śâḵal; a primitive root; to be ( causatively, make or act) circumspect and hence, intelligent: — consider, expert, instruct, prosper, ( deal) prudent (- ly), ( give) skill (- ful), have good success, teach, ( have, make to) understand (- ing), wisdom, ( be, behave self, consider, make) wise (- ly), guide wittingly.

 AV ( 63)- understand 12, wise 12, prosper 8, wisely 6, understanding 5, consider 4, instruct 3, prudent 2, skill 2, teach 2, misc 7;

 to be prudent, be circumspect, wisely understand, prosper ( Qal) to be prudent, be circumspect ( Hiphil) to look at or upon, have insight to give attention to, consider, ponder, be prudent to have insight, have comprehension insight, comprehension ( subst) to cause to consider, give insight, teach the teachers, the wise to act circumspectly, act prudently, act wisely to prosper, have success to cause to prosper ( Piel) to lay crosswise, cross ( hands)


REVELATION:  Today I was thinking that He said He would lead (or show) us in the way we should go.  But I don’t remember any place where He promised to tell us the way (outside of scripture).  He IS the way, and so we simply follow Him.


Psa 27:11 Teach me Your way, O Lord, and lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.


REVELATION:  So often when I want to understand an area of health better, I look it up on the www as a source of knowledge.  I try to make educated and wise decisions after praying over things. And when I am making decisions in life, while I am praying, I gain wisdom and experience from others in the same field.  Today I pondered about wisdom and the fact that so often He leads us that way instead of just outright telling us what to do.  I really wanted to know why!  


I suddenly realized the accountability and ramification of being told by the Lord what to do, and then deliberately defying that and choosing another way.  He leads us by wisdom so that we grow up and mature into making wise decisions.  It is His process and a safer one than just having obedient puppet children.  He is after all, raising us to be rulers which will require a LOT of decisions.


Luke 7:35

But wisdom is justified by all her children.



HEARD:  Hit it right on the mark.  If you need assurance for personal faith. Come My daughter I will show you. 


(I just noticed He said “show” you and not “tell” you.)


HEARD:  About the wisdom.  Mystery glitches and errors. Regardless, wisdom is safer.   To say no is a tragedy.  You understand this. 


[About mystery glitches and errors.  When I am learning new software, I test something and if it doesn’t work, I try the process another way.  I keep trying until I find the way!]



HEARD:  Where is your treasure?  Map, a treasure hunt.  Smile.  The road less traveled.


PIX:  I saw a path where there was a fork in the road up ahead.


HEARD:  Which way? Follow the sun/Son. 


PIX:  I saw a way in the clearing, a path of light.


IMPRESSION:  Although it wasn’t a vision, I had the impression of a break in the forest up ahead and there was light in clearing with a lovely meadow to the right.  I could clearly see it in the eyes of my heart.


HEARD:  It’s there, meadow.  What you perceive, in heaven there are many treasures like this.  Created just for you to find. 


PIX:  I saw a blade of grass that had grown up taller than the others in the meadow, so it would show itself to me. In the middle there was a diamond in the shape of an eye and it was glistening in the sun.  


HEARD:  Look through it, I will magnify My focus.  The spotlight of My Word.  What is happening?  Many facets.  Many colors.  What is your color for today?  Smile.  Each day I give you daily bread.  


PIX:  I saw the color red.


HEARD:  Wisdom.   Humble yourself before your God and He shall raise you up. 


CONFIRMATION:  (I had had the impression of a break in the forest up ahead and there was light in clearing with a lovely meadow.) When I got up from listening to the Lord, I went to Facebook and found what Hermie had posted!  She posted this one hour ago, the same time I was laying down to hear Him. 


The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to those who seek Him (Lam. 3:25). 





Often when you are in need of direction and need to make a decision, I would rather teach you how to make a wise decision, than tell you the decision.  I want to show you the way more than tell you the way.  When you need answers, simply ask Me and I will lay out a treasure map before you.  Along the path I will clearly spotlight truths, experiences and knowledge and as you bring these quickened morsels to Me, I will give you My discerning eye to view them.  As you humble yourself before Me, I will raise you up into My wise child!


Luke 7:35

But wisdom is justified by all her children.


Prov 2:6-8

For the Lord gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7 He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk uprightly; 8 He guards the paths of justice, And preserves the way of His saints.


Prov 1:2-7

To know wisdom and instruction, To perceive the words of understanding, 3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, Justice, judgment, and equity; 4 To give prudence to the simple, To the young man knowledge and discretion — 5 A wise man will hear and increase learning, And a man of understanding will attain wise counsel, 6 To understand a proverb and an  enigma, The words of the wise and their riddles. 7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.






Math 13:10

And the disciples came and said to Him, " Why do You speak to them in parables?" 11 He answered and said to them, " Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given.




g1097. γινώσκω ginōskō; a prolonged form of a primary verb; to "know" (absolutely) in a great variety of applications and with many implications (as follow, with others not thus clearly expressed): — allow, be aware (of), feel, (have) know (- ledge), perceived, be resolved, can speak, be sure, understand.

AV (223)- know 196, perceive 9, understand 8, misc 10;

 to learn to know, come to know, get a knowledge of perceive, feel to become known to know, understand, perceive, have knowledge of to understand to know Jewish idiom for sexual intercourse between a man and a woman to become acquainted with, to know


Matt 34

All these things Jesus spoke to the multitude in parables; and without a parable He did not speak to them, 35 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, saying: "I will open My mouth in parables; I will utter things kept secret from the foundation of the world."


QUOTE NEVILLE JOHNSON:  He hides truth FOR us so we can find it, search for it, dig it up. Layers and layers.  They are kept for us like time capsules for further understanding to be unfolded.


PARABLE:  I was watching a documentary on Modern Marvels of how they build yachts.  The engineer was sitting in front of his computer showing the 3-D infrastructural bones of the ship.  He circled around a tiny spot and showed how each part of the ship was a separate layer in his software that he could work on, print out and send to a particular specialist to build.  It was such a great model to me of how revelation works layer by layer. 


The Lord can spotlight one part of a whole, and go through several layers, each one helping us see how it fits with the parts around it.  He speaks to us in parts and pieces and there are many reasons for this. 


1.  So that we will seek Him.

2.  So that He can draw us to Him, like a spoon fed baby.

3.  So that our appetite for Him increases.

4.  So that we will learn to be dependent upon Him when applying His Words.

5.  So that we will learn not to be presumptuous.

6.  So that we will learn how to be teachable.

7.  So that we will learn humility.

8.  So that we will grow in the knowledge of Him.

9.  So that we will grow in faith.

10. So that we grow to love Him more.

11. So that we enjoy communion with Him.


1 Cor 2:6-16

However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, 8 which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written: " Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man The things which God has prepared for those who love Him."


10 But God has revealed them to us through His Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. 11 For what man knows the things of a man except the spirit of the man which is in him? Even so no one knows the things of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God.


13 These things we also speak, not in words which man's wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. 14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For " who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?" But we have the mind of Christ.


Jer 29:13

And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.


Luke 10:21 NKJV

“I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and revealed them to babes.” 


UPDATE 1/31/13 (As I was meditating on unfolding wisdom and revelation)


PIX:  I saw a wooden wheel barrow that was for an old fashioned garden. 


HEARD: Dig.  Mystery.  Gem stone. 


PIX:  I saw some turnaround blocks that are mounted in playgrounds. They had the ABCs on them, and the children spin them around into place. 



HEARD: Porthole.


The ABC blocks are like little doors that reveal their face and what is written on them, as they turn around into place.  The door is Jesus and we come in and out and find green pasture. 


Revelation is hide and seek.   The wisdom of the ages is inside of us.  Jesus visited and then disappeared and they were left with the revelation that they just had a visitation.  That is the same with angelic visitations.  God was there and suddenly you knew it.  (Jacob at Peniel, Jesus on the road to Emmaus, Peter and fish on the other side of the boat.)


On the other side of the door or porthole is Wisdom waiting to be revealed, its face manifest.  Knowing wisdom is an experience of knowing the Lord.
