In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. Col 2:3 NLT
Every person living in the world today is in search for knowledge and wisdom that delivers him from the situations of life. From search to search, from east to west, north to south, the search for knowledge and wisdom begins and ends in Jesus. If only the whole world would know it, many would avoid the pain and misery found in the world today.
The opening scripture says, in him lie hidden all the treasures of knowledge and wisdom. Notice that these treasures are hidden, not from us, but for us. Hidden here does not mean concealing, but it implies stored. All knowledge and wisdom is stored in Jesus and made accessible to all who believe in Him.
By description, knowledge is the understanding of the truth, and wisdom is the application of that truth. In the scriptures, Jesus referred to Himself as the truth. In light of this, no true knowledge can be in contradiction to God’s word. If anyone is going to acquire true knowledge, he ought to start with Jesus who is the truth. Anything that is true has its links to Jesus Christ.
Jesus is the capsulated wisdom of God. The entire plan of God our creator is revealed to man through Jesus. Jesus is the wisdom of God. For this reason, scripture says, who God is made to us wisdom, 1 Cor. 2:30. The only way we can know true knowledge and apply it in its true sense, is by acknowledging Jesus. All you ever want to know, and all you ever want to achieve, is in Jesus.
Therefore, if Jesus is living in you by faith, this makes you have these treasures of wisdom in you. You have the Knowledge and wisdom of God in you.
Consider, owning a mechanical product produced by a renown manufacturer. You may not have the blue print for making the product, but having the product with you can reveal to you the wisdom used in making the product. You possibly could be able to open it up and put it together again.
In the same way, having Jesus in your life reveals to you the wisdom of God. Jesus is the accomplished plan of God. Jesus is God's revelation to Mankind. In Christ Jesus You are able to know things concerning God and beyond the natural realm. You are able to know the things that make things happen. You will understand the work of faith; how faith makes things come into existence, just because you have Jesus in you. For this reason, scripture commends us to look upon Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, Heb 12:2. Only in Him and by Him are we able to know and understand all things.
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for your Word. I ask you to enlighten me with your knowledge and wisdom in Christ Jesus. Teach me your ways every day and give me an understanding heart. In Jesus name, I pray, amen
