Daniel: Trusting God
03/20/2017, by John Kincaid


Lesson 1085: Wisdom: Human vs. God’s, Pt.7

Wisdom is knowledge + insight to face the challenges of life. First you must know the enemy.

The believer has 3 enemies: the world, the flesh, and the devil (Eph.2:1-3).

We cannot obtain the required wisdom without faith and prayer (communion with the source of wisdom.)
 
Be on guard against envy and selfishness, which lead to disorder and tension.

True wisdom reveals the characteristics of Christ (His aroma) to those we meet. 2 Cor.2:14-15
 
Prov.3:13-18 describes wisdom as a tree of life.

The tree of life, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, were 2 different trees near each other in the middle of the garden of Eden. Gen.2:9, 16-17

God said that Adam could eat from any tree except “the knowledge of good and evil”.
 
God clearly indicated that Adam was free to eat from the tree of life. God intended for all people to eat from this tree, since it is a picture of Christ. Rev.2:7, 22:2, 14, 19
 
In Gen.3:22, eating from the tree of life gives eternal life (the opposite result from the forbidden tree).

In Gen.3:24, the way to the tree of life was guarded, so that we can only come by faith
.

 

About This Series

The book of Daniel, unlike any other, shows us that God is in control.

Daniel shows that God's wisdom is infinite, and God's love is perfect.

Because this is true, we can trust God.


This series seeks to build deep trust in God. Then even in troubled times, we can live without fear.
