Understanding is the fruit of godly wisdom! All knowledge mankind naturally acquires is through the (five) senses and based in reason and logic. Unless godly wisdom and understanding are in place, the intellect will alter the message of wisdom according to its knowledge and earthly wisdom. Listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on March 5, 2017, with key Scripture Ephesians 1:17–19, Proverbs 4:7, and 1 Corinthians 2:6.
Ephesians 1:15–21 NKJV:
15 Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, 16 do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: 17 that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, 18 the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, 19 and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power 20 which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, 21 far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.
Proverbs 4:7 NKJV:
Wisdom is the principal thing;
Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
1 Corinthians 2:6 NKJV:
However, we speak wisdom among those who are mature, yet not the wisdom of this age, nor of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing.
