In the book of James, Chapter 1 verse 5, an unconditional offer is made whereby if a person who lacks wisdom asks the Lord for it, He will give that person wisdom generously and no fault shall be held to that person's account.

"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him".  - James 1 verse 5

An exposition on the means of getting wisdom and the value of receiving it  from God is found in Proverbs chapter 2 verse 2 - 9:

 Make your ear attentive to wisdom, Incline your heart to understanding;

For if you cry for discernment, Lift your voice for understanding;

If you seek her as silver, And search for her as for hidden treasures;

Then you will discern the fear of the LORD And discover the knowledge of God.

For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.

He stores up sound wisdom for the upright; He is a shield to those who walk in integrity,

Guarding the paths of justice, And He preserves the way of His godly ones. 

Then you will discern righteousness and justice And equity and every good course.

To acquire wisdom, the first step is to listen and to incline our ear. Step 2 is to cry and raise our voices calling for it. Step 3 is to diligently look for it as one would seek a precious treasure.

The Lord, who stores up wisdom for us before hand,  dispenses wisdom by either speaking it or by making it discernable to our spirits through the fear of the Lord.

If we follow the prescription of wisdom that is given to us,  our paths are guarded and our ways are preserved. We can sense the righteous course and accurately weigh justice and equity.  

Bless the Lord who lavishes us with the  benefits of wisdom on the strength of our  asking for it earnestly.
