Wisdom Has Two Hands, So Take Both! – Joseph Prince

Many people want wisdom. Many want to have riches and honor, and long life. But they don’t see that wisdom is a person, and that it is being in the Lord’s presence that makes you wise. Neither do they realize that long life is inseparable from the One who is life.

Jesus has been made unto us wisdom—and He is seated at the right hand of the Father. (Hebrews 12:2) He is true wisdom.

In the Bible, wisdom is said to have two hands. In the left hand are riches and honor, and in the right is length of days. (Proverbs 3:16) So in Christ Himself are both the right and left hands of wisdom—riches and honor, and length of days!

In Deuteronomy 30:19, God told the children of Israel, “I set before you blessing and cursing, life and death” and just in case some of us don’t get it, He added,

Deuteronomy 30:19–20
…therefore choose life, that both you and your descendents may live…and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days…

The length of your days is a person! The Lord is your life and the length of your days. He is life, and in His presence is life.
