You need Wisdom?
1. My son, if thou wilt receive My words, and hide My commandments with thee;
2 So that thou incline thine ear unto wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding;
3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding;
4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures;
5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.
6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.
7 He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: He is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.
8 He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of His saints.
God gives clear directions in His word; how to receive eternal life; how to live holy before His face; how to treat your enemies; how to endure, etc. In the above scriptures you'll find instructions on how to receive wisdom and knowledge.
If you just would pay attention to His word and meditate upon it, many of the daily problems you are facing would get dissolved. If you need direction in which way to turn, God's word has the answer.
Doesn't Jesus Himself say: "Ask, and it shall be given you; Seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. Matthew 7:7
Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. John 16:23
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6
But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. James 1:6,7
Apply God's word to your life. Not only when you are in trouble, but every moment of your life.
You soon will experience the leading of the Holy Spirit; a close relationship with the Father; a clear path to walk; understanding of His will for your life; love for your neighbour and enemy; and above all the peace of God in your heart.
Then you will stand unmovable through faith, no matter the circumstances, for the glory of God.
Go for it, in the strength of the Lord!
