Wisdom comes from understanding, an attribute that Proverbs 3:13 KJV says makes you happy:
Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding.
With “Wisdom” eluding many, it is a good idea to find out what you must do to obtain it. Proverbs 4:7 KJV shows it to be “the principal thing”, something that “getteth understanding” gets you:

Recognizing that you are limited when it comes to understanding scripture, you turn to the Lord whom you trust with all your heart; He brings understanding to you.
Accepting this truth, Proverbs 1:5 KJV refers to you as a wise man, one who hears, recognizes, and attains wise counsel:

There are two reasons for you to believe that God delivers Understanding to you:
He wants you wise; He has a burning desire to share His views on good and evil and right and wrong with you.
God is your only source for obtaining Wisdom.

Webster’s also relates the “ability to discern inner qualities and essential relationships” to Wisdom and if you ask me, this is saying that Wisdom comes from understanding what you have learned and not how much you have learned.
God, speaking to you through scripture, wants to be heard and He wants to be
