The Holy Spirit is part of the trinity that has existed since day #1.
Genesis 1:2 - Now the earth was formless, and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the spirit of God was hovering over the water.
Proverbs 3:19 "By wisdom the Lord laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place" & Jeremiah 10:12 "But God made the earth by his power; he founded the world by his wisdom and stretched out the heavens by his understanding"
God gives Spirit & Wisdom in the Old Testament to Whom He was pleased to give it to:
(You can't just take it, it must be given. Look at Eve, the forbidden tree that she ate from was to give her secret wisdom of God! Taking and not asking= spiritual death! (Genesis 3:6)
Old Testament encounters with Holy Spirit & Wisdom
Exodus 31:3 "....I have filled him with the Spirit of God, with wisdom...."
1 Kings 4:29 "God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore."
2 Chronicles 9:23 - "All the kings of the earth sought audience with Solomon to hear the wisdom God had put in his heart."
Ezra 7:25- "And you, Ezra, in accordance with the wisdom of your God, which you possess"
Daniel 2:23 "I thank and praise you, God of my ancestors: You have given me wisdom and
" Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him"
"And the child grew and became strong; he was filled with wisdom, and the grace of God was on him."
1 Corinthians 1:24 "Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God."
"The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, the Spirit of the knowledge and fear of the Lord"
" He will be the sure foundation for your times, a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge; the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure"
1 Corinthians 1:30 - " It is because of him (Holy Spirit) that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption"
The Israelites believed that the spirit of God dwelled inside man through the breath of the Almighty God and that would give man Wisdom! (Job 32:8)
God’s Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit
1 Corinthians 2:6- "We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing"
Paul goes over and over that this kind of wisdom from God is Not the wisdom of men nor the wisdom of the world. This is not the same as knowledge from a human understanding. As a matter of fact, God clearly tells us that Wisdom of this world is Folly! (1 Corinthians 3:19) Remember back to the story of Job! The two men speaking to Job were full of human wisdom, but not of God! God rebuked the two men for that!
Now if you go read while in the spirit, in the book of Proverbs and read synonymously between the words "Wisdom" & "Holy Spirit" you will find a whole new level of revelation. It's as though God himself is writing you those words just for you about the gift of the Holy Spirit (wisdom) It's incredible actually!
Remember- Solomon wrote this book, a man full of wisdom from God!
Lastly, I pray like Paul prayed for the people in his time, that you too may receive the power of the spirit and the wisdom!
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
"....we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives"
I can pray for you but always remember ...Ask and it shall be given to you! (John 14:14)
" 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" After all, King Solomon asked God for one thing of God (Wisdom) and it was given to him! (2 Chronicles 1:10) God Loves to Give to those that ask. Important to know that the Wisdom was for his people, to be used to build up his Kingdom. If you ask God for Supernatural Wisdom through the spirit it will be given to you if you can be trusted with it! Jesus said, if you can be trusted with little you will be trusted with more! (Luke 16:10)
So Ask the Lord and then take time with him! We pray, worship in the spirit, in a quiet alone place with the Lord. It is there that we hear his still, soft voice. It is there that the hidden is revealed! ♥ "..you taught me wisdom in that secret place" Psalm 51:6
Blessings to you All~ In our Saviors Name I pray~ Amen
