Wisdom is a very important thing in life. We need wisdom to survive. Wisdom helps us gain insight and understanding. One thing I’ve noticed about the bible is that it covers everything in the world.
Whatever knowledge you need to live and survive in this world is in the bible and the bible also goes on to say that if we lack wisdom, we should ask God and he will give us.
This shows that when you lean on God, you will have the wisdom and knowledge you need to survive. See below for more wisdom bible verses.
Prayer for wisdom
Almighty Lord, I come to you today in complete submission. I give to you both my heart and my mind. Assist me in relying solely on you in whatever I do. Take charge of my life and direct my thoughts and behaviors. Please assist me in understanding your words and focusing my heart and mind on you. Lord, walk with me and direct my steps. Give me wisdom, strength, and guidance in whatever I do. Lead me through life’s obstacles and towards the life you have prepared for me. Let your will be done in my life at all times, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
