31 DAYS WISDOM FOR WOMEN WITH DR. JENNIFER WISEMAN

LADIES ON FIRE

Women should love wisdom as our lovely sister. Wisdom is one of the most valuable items in life. It’s something that we as women should always find included among our most valuable assets. It is far more precious than our jewellery. Wisdom is something that we should always try to obtain no matter what. But how do you acquire wisdom? *•DESIRE WISDOM WITH ALL YOUR HEART.* As Solomon says, we must “look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure” (Proverbs 2:4). *•PRAY FOR WISDOM.* As James tell us, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” (James 1:5). Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.” (Proverbs 4:5 KJV)
