God is Wise

Another post in my series on the character of God; on the attributes of God.

Take these scriptures and meditate on them. Do not simply read them over or even memorize them. Go deeper than that by meditating on them.

Verses to meditate on

1 Chronicles 28:9    And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

Psalm 92:5    O LORD, how great are thy works! and thy thoughts are very deep.

Psalm 147:5   Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.

Proverbs 2:6    For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.

Proverbs 3:19-20    The LORD by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens.   By his knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew.

Isaiah 28:29    This also cometh forth from the LORD of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.

Isaiah 55:8-9    For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.   For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Daniel 2:20-22    Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:   And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:   He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

Romans 11:33-34    O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!   For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

Romans 16:27     To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

Colossians 2:2-3     That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ;   In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
