Is ‘Wisdom’ a female goddess?

Before considering why God is personified using male pronouns, it is useful to consider why  wisdom is personified as female in the Bible. 

“Wisdom is justified by all her children.” Those who act out the most rational, objective, truthful and charitable desires will not only form good character but will also succeed in practical and material enterprise. These children of wisdom will inspire others to use their minds to seek out new, equally good, ways of living. Wisdom is neither innate nor natural, it is an invisible creation that relies on the stable structures offered by truth, and uses love to flesh out form in each unique circumstance. Even though wisdom is painted as a personality that waits for us to discover her, wisdom cannot exist outside of self-aware minds, so if she were a person she would be in various states of disrepair. and constantly changing. The search for wisdom is a part of the reason for creation, it is something angels desire and enjoy. It is not a substance or a single person, its not even a force, it is a unique creative  combination of morality, understanding, curiosity and enterprise; it is fluid enough to adapt to each individual situation. Even though we are born with intuitive knowledge and with a sense of what is appropriate, rational and moral wisdom is a construct that must be cultivated in the heart and minds of individuals and within our collective culture.

Things of great worth and elegance are often referred to in the feminine, like a ship or a work of art. Therefore those who use the feminine description of wisdom in Proverbs 8 to justify the belief in a female demigod, and give her the name Sophia or Mother Ayahuasca, have no Biblical basis to justify their Gnostic leanings. The writers of the Bible know that Yahweh could not be an actual male because God is a spirit being who can manifest in whatever form he pleases. But it seems important to God that we should relate to him primarily as we would to a wise and good father figure, rather than an accepting and gregarious mother figure. Once we come to God on the basis of faith in his character, and with humility in our heart, then all of the more fluid and gracious elements of God can also be received.
