Devotions from Michael Molinas book, The Spiritual Guide

The wisdom of God is something that is infused within us and leads to an inner knowing of God. Sermons may be given by men of great knowledge and learning but they may lack an experiential knowledge of the internal things of the Spirit.  They may seek their own honor instead of God’s glory. Those who preach the Word of God while at the same time living in the Spirit within their innermost parts will impress the Word upon the hearts of the hearers. To truly know God begets humility, and just acquiring knowledge and information begets pride. Often we see the love of God in those willing to deny self. We will find wisdom far more among the simple than those who know so much about God, but so little of the Lord Himself. Let us also live and speak as one who learns and not as one who knows.
