The "What" of Wisdom

Godly wisdom ties into everything that we want and need in our lives. If so much is connected to this word "wisdom," we should understand what it means.

First and foremost, wisdom is the ability to perceive God's will. This is the "what" of God. Know this: When we are out of the will of God then nothing is coming our way. Or, something may come our way, but we will totally miss it. To be in a receiving position, you must be where God is passing out the blessings.

This concept can be described best through the familiar terms of a football game. It's like a receiver who is out of bounds. Even if he catches the ball thrown by the quarterback, it's no good. It doesn't count. The team doesn't advance; there's no first down. That catch does nothing for the team.

When we are out of the will of God, we're out of bounds with God. This doesn't mean Christians are intentionally out of God's will, any more than a football player intentionally runs out of bounds on a play. Part of the problem could be because we are not grasping this concept of walking in wisdom. Walking in wisdom will keep us in the center of God's perfect will.

The great football receiver Jerry Rice was asked what he thought made him such a great player. He turned the compliment around to apply to his quarterback. He said that having a great quarterback was the key. "My only job as a receiver," Rice explained, "is to run the right pattern. It's the quarterback's job to get the ball to the right spot."

That is what God wants us to do - He wants us to "get there." Wouldn't it be something if God were throwing the pass of my "mate" toward me and instead of being right where he wanted me to be, I was off in another place, out of His perfect will? And as a result, I missed it! Not because God wasn't throwing the "pass," but because I was not in a position to receive.
