1 Ki 4:29 “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding beyond measure, and breadth of mind like the sand on the seashore.” This verse illustrates what is available. The passage in context goes on at length to describe a few areas of Solomon’s expanded wisdom, but suffice it to say God is God and he can give as much as he sees fit when and to whom he sees fit.
We know there are various ways to acquire wisdom. Since we know there’s plenty to be had, ask yourself: how much wisdom do you need? Consider Solomon’s life. He enjoyed a great gift from God. Still, in his later years his flesh got in the way of his wisdom when he took hundreds of women as wives and concubines and such. He drifted further and further from the Lord as he accepted their false idols. He was morose and depressed and his writings expressed these sentiments.
As for me, I seek to know what the Lord wants me to know. I seek discernment. I seek to know and to understand His will to the degree possible. With it I seek to share what I receive and to give Him the glory for it. The free gift which is most valuable of all is the gift of eternal life and that comes by faith, not wisdom. Wisdom comes from God to those with faith, not the other way around (Jas 1:6-7).
