God’s wisdom

  • Rev. Bright Mawuena Nfodzo
Date preached August 15, 2023

21 My son, do not let wisdom leave your sight. Carefully observe sound judgment and discernment,

22 and they will be life to you and a graceful ornament for your neck.

23 Then you will travel safely on your way, and your foot will not stumble.

24 When you sit down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be pleasant.

25 Do not be afraid of sudden disaster, or the devastation that comes to the wicked.

26 Indeed, the LORD will be your confidence, and he will keep your foot from being caught.


There is a difference between our wisdom and God’s wisdom. Also, there is a difference between our intelligence and God’s intelligence. God is wiser than we are. And God is more intelligent than any person is. See Isaiah 55:8-9.

All true wisdom comes from God. Our ideas may be good. But they are never better than God’s wisdom.

Women often display their beautiful objects. They wear gold, silver, and precious stones on chains about their necks. There are plenty of beautiful things for us. Right decisions, love, and wisdom are all beautiful things. They are better than any precious stone.

Gold and silver may be beautiful. Wisdom is more beautiful than any valuable object.

Our passage also compares life with a journey. This passage teaches us that God will protect us. We have nothing to fear. Many Psalms teach a similar lesson. See Psalm 121, Psalm 46:1, and Psalm 62:2.

Verse 24 gives us special comfort. We cannot protect ourselves at night. In the dark, there are many dangers. Many people struggle to sleep. We should trust in God. He can keep us safe.

🔷 The wicked person may receive sudden disaster and trouble for their wickedness and reliance on themselves

🔷 The Lord shall always protect His own from stumbling and falling

💥 Pray for wisdom from God
💥 Ask for God’s protection everywhere and in everything you do

It is God who takes care of His own – all those who rely on Him for wisdom. God becomes their supplier and protector on the road and in their beds.
