Do We Know How To Find Wisdom?

The current word for me by the Holy Spirit is: The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.

In this age of tremendous technological advancement and wealth creation, we are better off than generations in times past in dealing with fears such as sickness and poverty. Yet, we are reminded by Scripture that there is a God in heaven whose footstool is the earth and that we do well to fear God alone.

Truly, the race is not to the swift and powerful. And, though times and chance do happen to all, there is a manner of running which pleases the Lord. I submit that we run the race our life by submitting ourselves to the word of God and being led by the Holy Spirit. To do so, we need to have the fear of the Lord – giving Him total obedience and all the glory. It’s always time to revere the Lord and come into His manifest Presence. He alone is God! He alone warrants our full attention!

As with the heavenly host, we sing, “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom and thanksgiving and honor and power and strength belong to our God forever and ever! Amen.” (Revelation 7:12b; NLT) Wisdom is found in a Person – Jesus Christ Himself! Do we know how to find wisdom?

As with my daily chapter-by-chapter Bible reading for today, I read from Job 28 where an observation is made that people are, amongst other things, clever enough to look for : silver, gold, iron ore, copper, lapis lazuli and precious stones. But, Job said that wisdom is not found in God’s creation such as the ocean and the sea. He also said that wisdom cannot be bought with silver, gold and precious stones for it is of much more immense value.

Job ventured on to say that wisdom is hidden from our natural sight, even those of sharp-eyed birds. He then reached this climax: ““God alone understands the way to wisdom; he knows where it can be found, for he looks throughout the whole earth and sees everything under the heavens. He decided how hard the winds should blow and how much rain should fall. He made the laws for the rain and laid out a path for the lightning. Then he saw wisdom and evaluated it. He set it in place and examined it thoroughly. And this is what he says to all humanity: ‘The fear of the Lord is true wisdom; to forsake evil is real understanding.’” (Job 28:23-28; NLT)

Today is a day as good as any to fear the Lord and gain a heart of wisdom.
