If God be infinitely wise, let us go to him for wisdom, as Solomon did.


‘Give thy servant an understanding heart; and the speech pleased the Lord.’ I Kings 3:3.


Here is encouragement for us; ‘If any one lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who giveth liberally, and upbraideth not.’ James 1:1.


Wisdom is in God, tanquam infonte, ‘as in the fountain’; his wisdom is imparted, not impaired; his stock is not spent by giving.


Go then to God.


Lord, do thou light my lamp; in thy light shall I see light; give me wisdom, to know the fallacy of my heart, the subtleties of the old serpent; to walk jealously towards myself, religiously towards thee, prudently towards others; guide me by thy counsel, and afterwards receive me to glory.
