‘Where does wisdom come from?’ Job asked. (28:12 )
God alone knows where wisdom is. God established the wind and measured the waters. He made a decree for the rain and a path for the thunderstorm. He looked at wisdom, tested it and confirmed it.
And he says to us today, “The fear of the Lord – that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding.” (vs 28 ).
How many times do we hear this exact same truth in the Bible?
Those of us who have memorized Proverbs 2 repeat this several times a day. “For the Lord gives wisdom, from his mouth come knowledge and understanding.” (Proverbs 2:6)
In Proverbs 3 we are told, ” Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and shun evil.”(vs 7).
Over and over we hear these same words.
God is telling us where to find true wisdom.
How to get it.
Who gives it.
Only from you, Abba Father.
