Why it is called “Wisdom of Solomon”

When I graduated from school, I joined a Church where the focus was Salvation and particularly the gifts of the Holy Spirit (I elaborate on this in the “About Us” page).  I was quit overwhelmed by everything I experienced.

However, one thing I struggled with (and I meet many Christians who experience the same problem I had) was, where do I begin to read the Bible?

 

No one helped me; I just decided to read Proverbs.  I reckoned, seeing it had 31 chapters and there are 31 days in a month and the fact of Solomon being the wisest man in the Bible, it should be a good start.

 

I started to read a chapter everyday.  If it was the 10th of the month, I would read chapter 10.  On the 25th, I would read chapter 25.  I would quickly read through the chapter once or maybe twice and pick the verse that “spoke” to me.

 

I would then think on that verse for the rest of that day.  Trying to answer questions like, “how can I apply it to my life?”, “is it possible?”, “do I know people like this?” etc.  However, I never tried to memorise the verses.

 

This I continued to do for 2 years.  After about 6 months, something unusual began happening.

 

I would face a daily problem related to life in general or a specific burden.  The moment I began to pray, the answer would “pop-up” within me.  This answer would be from a piece of scripture in the book of Proverbs.  This occurred repeatedly.

 

I realised this is what Jesus spoke of when He said, But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.” (John 14:26)

 

The conclusion I reached was that it is extremely important to know the written Word of God.  Not to memorise it all as such but to read, think and meditate on it. (1 Tim 4:15-16)

If I have no written Word of God in me (within my heart/spirit), the Spirit of God cannot bring any to remembrance.  Surely, God speaks in different ways and a solution or answer can come from different places.  However, the Spirit and the Word are the two witnesses the Bible speaks of in Zech 4:3,14 and Rev 11:3

 

These Daily Devotions are all about the proverbs of Solomon.

 

However, I will not focus on the solutions to life’s problems or answers to everyday questions, but rather its relation to the Life of Christ, His wisdom, knowledge, Spirit, glory and growing up into Him. (Eph 4:15)

Hopefully, you will be motivated, inspired and challenged as you are growing unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ.
