Willing to comply to His plans because they are best (Psalm 104:24)

“Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments and unfathomable His ways!” (Rom. 11:33)

Knowledge and wisdom are distinct perfections in God

Arguments for God’s Wisdom

God’s Wisdom is found in creation, in government, and in redemption

Part of wisdom is to bring good out of evil, out of punishment, and out of sin.

God’s Wisdom compared to human wisdom

God’s wisdom cannot be discerned by mere human ability. (1 Cor. 1:20-21 ; 3:18-20) ; (Isaiah 47:10)

God’s Wisdom manifest in particular lives

  1. God’s wisdom employs Kings, prime ministers, presidents etc.; as their actions serve a greater purpose than they intended.
  2. God’s wisdom acts in divine providence through his servants.

The Wisdom of God taught in Proverbs chapters 1-9

Wisdom is connected to understanding, knowledge, and discernment; making its abode among the upright in heart: those who are just, those with integrity, those showing self-discipline, and those seeking to keep the commandments of God. (Prov. 1:7, 20) (2:2, 6, 10) (3:7, 13, 15, 18, 19, 21) (4:5, 11) (5:1) (7:4) (8:1, 5, 8:11-36) (9:1-10)

The Wisdom of God made known in His divine plan of salvation

Hidden wisdom - (1 Cor. 2:6-8) ; (Col. 2:2b-3) ; (Ps. 51:6)
Mysterious wisdom - (1 Cor. 2:7) ; (Romans 11:33-34) ; (Col. 1:9b,10) (Eph. 1:7-10)

God’s wisdom ‘in Christ’ is a mystery which for ages had been hidden. Now it has been made known prominently in the ‘Gospel of Grace’. (Col. 1:9b, 10) ; (Rom. 11:33-34)
