Wisdom is so crucial to having a successful life-prosperity,impact,fruitfulness,fulfilment of one’s divine purpose,etc. Without wisdom, success is elusive. With wisdom,success is inevitable.
Now,what is wisdom? Who can be said to be wise?
Wisdom is the principal thing. It is the most important entity you need to function effectively if you are to have a bright future. And according to Proverbs 9:10, the fear of the Lord is the foundation of wisdom. So,to begin the acquisition of wisdom, you have to start to fear the Lord as from this moment forward. In essence, you must begin to regard the Lord as the most important personality in all your dealings. Respect and obey him wholeheartedly. Study his words and commit them to heart. Never take decisions without consulting him, always ask him for direction. If you consistently do these, then you are living in the fear of the Lord. And as you continue to live in his fear,you’ll get wiser because the fear of the Lord births wisdom. The wise fears the Lord.
The decisions you make today will either have positive or negative impacts on your future. The fear of the Lord equips you with good judgement and the ability to make the right decisions which will ultimately have positive impacts on your future,making it bright and you,successful.
Therefore the summary of the connection between Wisdom and the future is ‘get wisdom,have a bright future.’
Always remember that wisdom is in God and his fear is the foundation of it.
