The Power Of Wisdom

"The wise man is strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth strength." (Proverbs 24:5)KJV.
One of the foundational principles of getting ahead is to be rich in wisdom, procure strength and confidence in execution. Consider wisdom as the right application of knowledge. Back to my story, as I became wiser in the business through knowledge, understanding and even my mistakes; I was making a sustained headway towards the million dollar goal. Nothing can replace wisdom in our human endeavors. The bible says, "Wisdom is the principal thing". It's the main thing, do you understand: If it is, then you should be seeking wisdom with all your heart.

I did, it gave me insight touching my product line. As I changed my product mix my sales grew dramatically. It went from nothing to making sales of over half a million dollars annually in a few years time. You talk about excitement, indeed I was. Wisdom which is divinely inspired has no march.
Attributes of wisdom

If you're a born again believer, you've been promised wisdom without constraint. The bible says, "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." (James 1:5)KJV.

When wisdom forms the foundation of your goal, project or undertaking, there's high probability of success than failure.
King Solomon learned a great secret at the beginning of his reign as a young upcoming king of Israel. When confronted by God to make a request, he responded, "Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad: for who is able to judge this thy so great a people?" (I Kings 3: 9)KJV. If you're seriously looking for a more sound and reliable way of getting ahead; seek for wisdom and understanding. His humble dependable request warranted a remarkable response. God gave him more than he had asked for, this is the power of godly wisdom. Have you ever considered developing a hunger for divine wisdom? Well, if not, do it, it's one of the most powerful life's building blocks.
These will position us on a path to promotion and honor. Here again we read, "And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the seashore. And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country and all the wisdom of Egypt. (I Kings 4:29-30)KJV.
It could be seen here that the wisdom that was given to Solomon was incomparable to that which was among the nobles or countries of his day. Many in their pursuit to get ahead have ignored divine input and consideration. The fame of Solomon went far and wide and his riches had no bounds. Strange as it may seem in our human endeavors, God still directs the affairs of men, "A man's heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps: (Proverbs 16:19)KJV.
Wisdom guards the path to assured riches, honor and greatness, therefore seek wisdom with all your heart if you really intend on getting ahead.
