Does spiritual wisdom guarantee success?

Proverbs 24:5The wise are mightier than the strong.

Proverbs 3:5-6Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.

While wisdom itself does not necessarily guarantee success in worldly terms, it is the road to spiritual prosperity.

1 Corinthians 1:19-20“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent.” So where does this leave the philosophers, the scholars, and the world’s brilliant debaters? God has made the wisdom of this world look foolish.

Spiritual wisdom allows us to avoid the folly of the world’s wisdom.

Proverbs 5:1-2Pay attention to my wisdom. . . . Then you will show discernment.

Wisdom protects the wise from evil.

Matthew 7:24“Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock.”

Wisdom allows us to build our lives on a firm foundation.
