In the whole chapter of Job 28, Job gives examples of where people might search for wisdom. However, beginning in verse 23 he gets to the point of where most people are today. For most of us have exhausted our efforts in finding wisdom, before we look to the creator of everything that exists, the One who gives undiluted wisdom, God almighty. Friends, we can save so much time, and avoid so many heartbreaks, if only we would look to the Creator for ALL things in life. Let’s acknowledge Him as Lord over everything in our lives, for He created us and has given us everything we need for life and everyday living. We owe it ALL to God. Wisdom is something we all should desire, so let us go to the root of wisdom and ask for it in its purest form. Why waste your time looking in such areas as described by Job in the first part of this chapter? Ask for it straight from its source! Praise God that I know Him personally and can ask anything of Him. Do you, friend?
Job 28:23–28 (NCV)
Only God understands the way to wisdom, and he alone knows where it lives, because he looks to the farthest parts of the earth and sees everything under the sky. When God gave power to the wind and measured the water, when he made rules for the rain and set a path for a thunderstorm to follow, then he looked at wisdom and decided its worth; he set wisdom up and tested it. Then he said to humans, ‘The fear of the Lord is wisdom; to stay away from evil is understanding.’ ”
