By Wisdom a house is built, By understanding, It is established.
Prov:24 vs 3
WISDOM is a gift from God.
A gift we should ask for, if we lack
James 1 vs 5
If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
But understanding is your own interpretation of what wisdom has deposited in you.
How you interprete it is crucial to the actions that follow.
For example It is wisdom to sow generously so you can reap bountifully.
But it takes understanding to find out how to Sow, what to sow,where to sow and when to sow .
You can only build on the wisdom you have received if you have understanding.
You cannot build your family without first understanding the dynamics of a good marriage, you cannot build a good business if you don’t understand how to run that particular business.
You cannot keep your customers or attract new ones if you don’t have the skill.
Proverbs 4:7 NKJV
Wisdom is the principal thing; Therefore get wisdom.
And in all your getting, get understanding.
Understanding can come from experience whether yours or another person’s.
It can also come from taking advise from people who have done the same thing before.(Mentorship) etc.
But in all,
The bible admonishes us to lean not only on our own understanding.
Prov. 3 Verses 5 to 6
 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
In your quest to get understanding, you have to acknowledge God ,so that he can direct your thinking,your search and ultimately your result.
The holy Spirit gives us understanding when we ask.
“And the spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the spirit of wisdom and understanding, the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD
Today , I pray that you will recieve the spirit of understanding to help you interprete the wisdom of God revealed for you to Excel in all areas of your life in Jesus Mighty name Amen.
