The second kind of wisdom is found in verses 17-18 of above scriptures-this is true wisdom and it is by this that any fighter can face, fight, and win in any battle of life. Therefore ‘wise counsel’ is actually counsel based on true wisdom. And it is this brand of wisdom that is ‘lost’ to hearts of human beings.
Job 28(KJV) verse 12 "But where shall wisdom be found? and where is place of understanding?"
This all-important question has to be corrected answered for anyone to truly experience real victory in this world!
Job 28(KJV) verse 23 "God understandeth way thereof, and he knoweth place thereof."
This statement of truth is what brings turning point in making of true champions! But how can this be relevant to us today?!
Job 28(KJV) verse 28 "And unto man he said, Behold, fear of LORD, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding."
From above scripture, we learn from God Himself fear of LORD is wisdom!
This reverential fear is possessed only by those who have a personal covenant relationship with God. Anyone can enter into this relationship by humbly coming to Jesus Christ (Matt 11:28); repenting from one’s sins (Acts 2:38); and receiving Him (John 1: 12-13) as personal Lord and Saviour. It is only in Christ that this brand of wisdom is ‘found’!
How does any covenant child of God access wise counsel?
This is done regularly by indwelling Spirit of God who teaches God’s people from scriptures directly or indirectly through lives and words of others (written or spoken).
