Do you know that God has designated a unique wealth acquisition system for His people? This system is diametrically opposed to the world’s system which propounds that attaining wealth is achieved by ardently pursuing it. To such incorrect philosophy have many sons of God succumb, piercing themselves with much heartache and pain.
The wealth acquisition system that God has set up for His people is one that does not pursue wealth in itself. Rather, it is a pursuit for WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING. This may sound odd but it is nevertheless true. Proverbs 3:13-15 tells us that the profit we get from wisdom and understanding are
“BETTER than the profits of silver, and…fine gold. She is MORE PRECIOUS than rubies, and all the things you may desire cannot compare with her.”
So, as sons of God, we have been pursuing the wrong things all along. We ought to have been pursuing God’s wisdom instead of gold. Wisdom says:
“Receive my instruction, and not silver, and knowledge rather than choice gold; for WISDOM IS BETTER than rubies and all the things one may desire cannot be compared with her” (Proverbs 8:10-11).
What this means is, wisdom is where your wealth is stored up and waiting for you. That’s why wisdom herself states boldly, saying:
“Riches and honor are WITH ME, enduring riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold, and my revenue than choice silver” (Proverbs 8:18-19).
God has reserved this age old secret for us, His sons. And He has hidden it from the sons of this age. So, it’s time we seek for wisdom as we would for gold, because Proverbs 2:4-6 tells us:
“If you SEEK HER as silver, and search for her as for hidden treasures; then you will understand the fear of the Lord , and find the knowledge of God. For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth come knowledge and understanding.”
God has wealth stored up for you, son of God. And wisdom is the key you need to unlock His storehouse. So, get wisdom, find the hidden wisdom of God, and search out the mysteries and secret things of God. Remember, when you seek, you shall find. May wisdom abound to you and unlock all treasures due to you.
