The nature of Divine Wisdom is explained beautifully in the Holy Bible. “There is in her a spirit that is intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, clear, unpolluted, distinct, invulnerable, loving the good, keen, irresistible, beneficent, human, steadfast, sure, free from anxiety, all powerful, overseeing all and penetrating through all spirits, that are intelligent, pure and altogether subtle” (Wisdom 7:22-23)
People who live for the world would desire more worldly wisdom more education, more wealth, popular name and more and more of everything which the world can give. But Divine Wisdom does not come from any worldly books, it comes from the book of law that is “Holy Bible”. “Open my eyes, so that, I behold wondrous thing out of your law” (Psalm 119:18). Every word from this book is from the mouth of God. “For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding” (Prov 2:6). “Wisdom is from the Lord and with him it remains forever” (Sir. 1:1)
The festival of Christmas is celebrated all over the world with great pomp & show. 2000 years back Jesus was born as Good-News to mankind. The main purpose of his birth into the world is to wipe away the sins of all, to give peace and everlasting life to his people whom he loves so much. The angel of Lord appeared to Joseph and said “She will bear a son and you are to name him Jesus, for he will, save his people from their sins” (Mathew 1:21).
Today Jesus is standing at the doors of our hearts and seeking place to be born. If our doors are closed with worldly celebrations, then it is sure that we have no knowledge of the “Holy Bible”. This is possible only if we hear his word and treasure them in our hearts like Mother Mary. “But Mary treasured all the words and pondered them in her heart” (Luke 2:19)
In the old testament God has spoken about his mercy to Abraham, Moses and many other prophets. “Because the Lord your God is merciful God. He will neither abandon you nor destroy you, he will not forget the covenant with your ancestors that he swore to them” ( Deut 4:31). Now at end times God is speaking about his mercy through his son Jesus. Jesus is a merciful God. His love for humankind is so much that he wishes no one should escape from his merciful love. Jesus never desires to punish sinners, but he is willing to heal them through his mercy. “He sent out his word and healed them, and delivered them from destruction” (Psalm 107:20)
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind”. This the greatest and first commandment of God. And the second commandment is “you shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:36-39)
In the Holy Bible what God has commanded we have to follow and there is no other option than to follow!! If we are faithful to the greatest two commandments of God then we can say that we are living according to God’s Ten commandments. “If anyone who loves God is known by him” (1 Cor 8:3). “Let us love one another because love is from God, everyone who loves God is born of God and knows God” (1 John 4:7-8)
Oh Lord you are my master,
Unless you build me, I will not grow better,
You are my future holder,
Take my responsibilities on your shoulder.
I can't do anything without you,
Weak and feeble I am on my own.
On you do I lean forever and ever.
Never cast me down and hold me when I stumble.
You are the root of all wisdom and Master of this creation,
You know the beginning and the end,
You know us better than we know ourselves.
Jesus please have control on our lives.
He is able and for him nothing is impossible,
Let us not be rigid and depend on our failing strength,
But let's be humble and offer our life into his hands.
For Jesus is our Creator and Father of all universe.

Lord you’re the wisdom,
I seek you more than a gold or silver,
Remain in me forever,
This is my prayer O Lord Jesus.
Abba Father my God,
By your wisdom you created this world,
Remain in me O my creator,
Your value is much more than precious of precious stones.
Your knowledge surpasses everything,
Who are we before your throne of insight,
O Lord fill me with your spirit of light and knowledge,
You be my guide and every time and everywhere instruct me.
Glory be to you O Jehovah forever,
For always being gracious on us all,
Take delight in us O Heavenly Father,
That in your wisdom we may grow wilder.
