But where can wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding? Job 28:12
Oh I love this chapter! Job is searching for wisdom. ( I search for wisdom, don’t you?) Man can find buried treasure in the ground with great skill, but only God knows where wisdom can be found.
God understands its way,
God determined the elements. He measured the force of the wind, the limit of the rain, and where each thunderstorm would occur. Wow! What power. Yesterday a friend and I took a walk on the river path. The sky was dark and menacing but it didn’t look like the storm was coming quickly. Suddenly it was on us. A strong powerful wind blew. The temperature dropped. The rain came hard. Big raindrops that stung. We, of course, were going as fast as we could toward shelter. It was an amazing experience. I was both scared and thrilled at the same time. It felt like tornado weather. I was looking at the ground around us in case we had to run for the ditch. I was praying that God would hold off the lightening. He did! The thunder and lightening came as we reached our car.
Job says that God is the giver of thunder storms and the giver of wisdom. He declared wisdom and established it. (Just like He did with storms!) Where can I find wisdom?
Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom;
I just read through a whole list of verses saying fear the Lord. Wow! You find and read them. This God is a God to be feared. He is not like us. He is Great. He is Holy. He is a whole lot more. He is the One who gave His Son so that sinners could be reconciled to Him! Amazing God!
More than anything I would like to encourage you in your walk with God!
