I don’t know why but this title/characteristic of God just sets my soul on fire and gets me too excited to explain. I just can’t contain it. The ONLY Wise God! (1 Timothy 1:7/Jude 1:25/Romans 16:27)
Wisdom defined by one word… also known as chokmah in Hebrew:
- Strong’s definition – Skilful
- Gesenius’ Hebrew-Chaldee Lexicon definition – Dexterity
The world was created by wisdom.
’The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth; by understanding hath he established the heavens. ‘ Proverbs 3:19
‘He hath made the earth by his power, he hath established the world by his wisdom, and hath stretched out the heavens by his discretion. ‘ Jeremiah 10:12
‘O Lord , how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches. ‘ Psalms 104:24
The world was created by wisdom by the ONLY wise God! There are many other gods in the world but our God has ALL wisdom and builds foundation on it. He didn’t just haphazardly or with a big bang create the universe but He founded it on wisdom.
Let’s just use one example today that led me to write this blog. Water.
God is so wise, strategic, and intentional that the He used water in so many ways naturally and spiritually. Spoiler alert(because I can’t help it with my excitement): God is the Living water(Jeremiah 2:13/17:13). Now come with me for a little science.
Ok. So while creating the earth in wisdom, God used two Hydrogen molecules with one molecule of Oxygen and called it water. This water can be in liquid, gas, or solid form. It makes up 70% of the earth and 70% percent of our bodies.
Do you want to know the amazing thing about that?! Although the earth and the body are made of majority of water, they both still need a consistent flow of water being added daily to properly function i.e precipitation to water the earth and drinking liquid to water our bodies.
I can keep going but let’s just transfer this over. Although we are made in His image, made by Him, and He lives in us if we have His Spirit….we still need more of Him daily! We still need a constant flow of Him in our lives! We NEED Living water to function in this life!
God in His infinite wisdom chose water to be a dominant source to everything on this earth and then called Himself Living Water.
Is that not wisdom?
Remember we only talked about H2O. How could we even begin to explain and correlate the many other things and sources He created on this earth that help sustain life.
This is all I can say, “Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high, I cannot attain unto it.“ Psalms 139:6 KJV
Just a few more things I read as I studied the wisdom of God…check them out.
Wisdom speaking: ‘The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was. When there were no depths, I was brought forth; when there were no fountains abounding with water. Before the mountains were settled, before the hills was I brought forth: While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world. When he prepared the heavens, I was there: when he set a compass upon the face of the depth: When he established the clouds above: when he strengthened the fountains of the deep: When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men. ‘ Proverbs 8:22-31
Jesus’ Wisdom: ‘And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter’s son? is not his mother called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas? And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then hath this man all these things? And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house. And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief.’ Matthew 13:54-58
Jesus is wisdom, the wisdom of God: ‘Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men. But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God. […] But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption: ‘ 1 Corinthians 1:24-25,30
****Oh!!!! And hey!!!! It’s been like 3 months….I’m happy to be back writing and sharing revelations and “nuggets”(as my Pastor would say) that God gives me. He NEVER stops giving them to me…..because He is a faithful God, I just have to share them but that’s another story. Anyway! I plan to get back to writing more and I look forward to it, like at least once a month again. *****
Can I say just one more thing??
God’s love is AMAZING!
