God alone understands the way to wisdom; he knows where it can be found, for he looks throughout the whole earth and sees everything under the heavens. . . . And this is what he says to all humanity: the fear of the Lord is true wisdom (Job 28:23-24, 28).
He also says: If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you (James 1:5).
Fear of the Lord and prayer are the way to wisdom.

I often pray for wisdom (see James 1:5). Until I read this definition, I didn’t know all that I was asking.
~varied knowledge of things human and divine, acquired by acuteness and experience
~skill in the management of affairs
~devout and proper prudence in intercourse with men
~knowledge and practice of the requisites for godly and upright living
Our lack of understanding doesn’t limit God’s answers to our prayers.
