Daily Bible Reading: Job 26 – 28
Verse of the Day: Job 28:12 – “But where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding”
Job in today’s verse laments that it seems that wisdom is beyond man’s ability to uncover, understand, and utilize. He has been through so much suffering (both physically and mentally) that he is searching for the wisdom behind what is happening to him.
He turns to state what we can read in Proverbs 3:7 and 9:10, - “And unto man he said, Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.” (Job 28:28).
Even in his periods of despair, he never lost his trust and confidence in God. He never doubted God – himself, his friends, the world around him, the purpose of his life – but never God. Fear God brings one true wisdom in this life and eternity.
Prayer: God of Wisdom, I come before You in obedience and fear – give me wisdom. Amen.
