3 Through wisdom a house is built,
And by understanding it is established;
4 By knowledge the rooms are filled
With all precious and pleasant riches.
5 A wise man is strong,
Yes, a man of knowledge increases strength;
6 For by wise counsel you will wage your own war,
And in a multitude of counselors there is safety”. (NKJV)

We need wisdom in order to succeed at anything we do. It’s not just any wisdom but godly wisdom. In every aspect of our lives we need goodly wisdom and understanding and knowledge to be able to make those aspects work together. We need to keep learning. Let God’s word be the standard we use and the foundation on which we build on.

Matthew 7 tells us he who builds his house on the foundation which is the rock is wise, even when storms come, it will stand.

“24 All who listen to my instructions and follow them are wise, like a man who builds his house on solid rock. 25 Though the rain comes in torrents, and the floods rise and the storm winds beat against his house, it won’t collapse, for it is built on rock”. (Matthew 7: 24 TLB)

The more of God’s word we have in us, the more our faith is strong and strengthened and we can handle whatever challenge comes our way. When we are weak, God is strong for us. 

Good and godly counsel is also needed as we go through our journey in life. It is important that we surround ourselves with people who can give good advice and keep us in check. Latter part of verse 6 says: “in a multitude of counsellors there is safety

I pray we learn to make God’s word the foundation we build every area of our lives on.

Thanks for joining today. Pls feel free to share your thoughts on chapter.

Have a blessed evening 🙂
