There are times when we feel pretty smart. For example, doesn’t it feel great when you ace a test or you know something your dad didn’t? But then reality hits us, and we realize there is so much that we don’t know. That we may not me as smart as we thought we were. Now, I’m not trying to drag you down or anything, but I am trying to make a point. Our wisdom has a limit. God’s wisdom, however, is never-ending.
But where can wisdom be found? Where does understanding dwell?
That was Job 28:12. Where can wisdom be found? Although there are a lot of ways to expand our knowledge, there are things that we simply do not know yet and that we can’t figure from any textbook. What does an atom look like? What lies on the outer reaches of the universe? Some people aren’t even sure about the origin of life (but, thankfully, we are!). But as I was saying above, God’s wisdom is never-ending. He created the atom, the universe, life…well, everything! His wisdom is infinite, but sometimes we overlook that. Proverbs 3:5 says:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
Our understanding (aka wisdom) is small. Life would get pretty messed up if we attempted to go about leaning on our own understanding. But if we lean on God’s infinite wisdom, know that He is in control, and follow His plan for our life, we know that everything that happens is for our own good (even if we can’t see it at the moment). So lean on Him.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28)
