Get wisdom from the Spirit

Ephesians 5:17-18 Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is. And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit

Wisdom comes with experience. We have to have lived a while and walked in certain circumstances to really gain wisdom. It doesn’t come free and it doesn’t come from an easy life lived in luxury.

Likewise, we can’t gain wisdom through means like getting drunk. While that may seem like a statement that goes without saying, it should be pointed out that lots of people think they’re pretty smart when they drink too much. It’s not the way to go to get anywhere that matters.

The way we should really look to get understanding is through seeking God’s will. If we allow Him to fill us with the Holy Spirit and to work in our lives, we are much better off than if we allow other things to fill us. The true path to enlightenment is through submission to God.
