Of course, not just everyone can find God's wisdom. Only those who are ready for it, who desire and seek after God with all their heart, are willing to understand and receive His wisdom. That's because:
He hides away sound and godly Wisdom and stores it for the righteous (those who are upright and in right standing with Him).
(Prov. 2:7, AMP)
God is always ready to be found, and His wisdom is always available. But those who don't seek Him don't find Him. The wisdom of God is hidden away, to be discovered only by those who serve Him, desire Him and give Him authority in their lives.

You see, God isn't hiding His wisdom from us; He's hiding wisdom for us.

Natural men just can't get hold of the wisdom of God. Now, some do discover certain elementary principles of God's wisdom that can bring a measure of success on this earth. They find out that the laws of God are the laws of success. So they write "how-to-be-a-success" books telling you to be honest and just. They tell you if you want a successful business, you need to maintain an attitude of serving others.

Many people have become millionaires by studying and applying the principles in these success books. They have used God's elementary principles to lay hold of material wealth.

But that's as far as natural man can go. If those same people aren't cleansed by the blood of Jesus and if all of God's wisdom isn't the quest of their lives, they can't lay hold of peace. They can't lay hold of divine healing. They can't lay hold of deliverance from every yoke of bondage.

But all of these blessings and more belong to us as God's children when we treasure God's words and direct our hearts and minds toward His wisdom. Not only can we have success in business and in our finances - we can have success in every area of life.

God's ways are ways of financial prosperity. But His ways are also ways of divine health and peace, and these blessings can't be obtained just by the elementary laws of the universe. You must dig into the Word and lay hold of the spiritual authority that brings healing, deliverance, prosperity and peace into your life.

Look at what Jesus told His disciples: "Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without [the kingdom of God], all these things are done in parables" (Mark 4:11).

That's why Jesus explained the parables He used to His own followers: so they could live and walk in God's way.

Yes, natural man might discover some elementary principles of God's wisdom. But God hides the depths of His wisdom for the righteous—for those who search for His knowledge and understanding as for hidden treasures. God sees to it that His wisdom cannot be misused. It is too powerful.
