When we understand the futility of earth based wisdom, it would help us come to terms with the superiority of heavenly(Gods) wisdom. Thus we’ll be examining various categories of earthly wisdom as applied to man:
1. Presumed methods and strategies– In this generation of information technology, it is no longer news that we live in a knowledge saturated world, ruled by an endless web of facts and figures. Thus with the advent of ‘DIY’S’, people no longer see the need to outrightly seek the need for professional help in certain areas of life and challenges (except in highly necessary and technical cases of masonry, architecture, medical specialists e.t.c) Thus the idea of applying commonsense is becoming very common to everyone.
This in itself is good, in a simplified society where everyone has access to the basic working tools that make life worth living. Yet in the light of all the advantages, we should understand that despite the many advantages of this system, mediocrity is the disadvantage thereof, where excellence takes the back seat.
You see in pursuit of your life’s vision, their are certain steps that may come natural to you. For instance, if you desire increase in business sales, basic common sense says advertisement through any medium is the way to go, either by fliers, TV or radio adverts, online adverts, billboards e.t.c. But if you were to apply divine wisdom; first you would seek God in prayer for His way to actualize sales expansion in your business, because God has more than one way to get a thing done for His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts higher than ours Isaiah55:9. In the place of prayer we access Gods perfect will for our lives in every area; giving us access to certain truths we never realized existed before. We therefore access truths which has the power to positively affect our destinies when applied Jer.33:3 says “Call unto me and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things thou knowest not”.
