Ephesians 1:8

8 Which He caused to 1abound to us in all 2awisdom and prudence,

82 Wisdom is what is within God for planning and purposing a will concerning us; prudence is the application of God's wisdom. First, God planned and purposed in His wisdom, and then He applied with prudence what He had planned and purposed for us. Wisdom was mainly for God's plan in eternity, and prudence is mainly for God's execution of His plan in time. What God planned in eternity in His wisdom, He is now executing in time in His prudence.
