"But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding?" Job 28:12
IN JESUS TODAY!
Beneath a rock? or Behind a Door? There is a place in all the earth that anything and everything can be found, all of which has been measured according to its particular value which is usually based upon how easy it is to find, or how much of it can be found. There is a vein for silver and a place where they make fine gold, and all of the minerals such as iron has it's own place within the earth. All things can be found! The end of darkness can be found and the beginning of light. But where shall we find wisdom? And where is the place of understanding? Our world cries out for these two, uprisings of hate, clashes of violence, and the voices of children unaware of the marching of darkness towards them, these are all in the mix, and we seem to draw out the worst of these every time we reach in the bag. For the love of children, and for the mercy of our next generations, shouldn't we search out wisdom? For the hope of peace, and for the love of God, shouldn't we seek understanding? When all things irrelevant to our future can be found, these two that matter the most eludes so many! May God help us to overturn every stone in existence, and to open every door that may conceal. Has he not revealed them to us? When wisdom and understanding are right here? When clearly we need them, and surely, as with all things they can be found! To silence the evil, and push back the darkness, to ease the nights of terror, and to settle us all at the brook of peace, we need to find wisdom, we need to capture understanding! Wisdom and understanding are not arrows shot hopelessly in the dark with no aim in life at all! Wisdom and understanding have a known and stated target! The target in the sights of wisdom and understanding is peace and love for us all! So where is it that we can finally find these two most invaluable and precious commodities? Here is a hint!
They are not in Gold, nor in Silver, not in Ophir or Onyx, nor in Sapphire or Crystal, no not in Rubies or Topaz, nor Diamonds or Pearls, so where can we find wisdom and understanding? Herein are they, "And unto man he said, behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding." Job 28:28 Since all things can be found, let us first find wisdom and get understanding!
