Relying On My Wisdom

Job 28: 12 But where can wisdom be found?
    Where does understanding dwell?
13 No mortal comprehends its worth;
    it cannot be found in the land of the living.
14 The deep says, “It is not in me”;
    the sea says, “It is not with me.”
15 It cannot be bought with the finest gold,
    nor can its price be weighed out in silver.


23 God understands the way to it
    and he alone knows where it dwells,
24 for he views the ends of the earth
    and sees everything under the heavens.
25 When he established the force of the wind
    and measured out the waters,
26 when he made a decree for the rain
    and a path for the thunderstorm,
27 then he looked at wisdom and appraised it;
    he confirmed it and tested it.
28 And he said to the human race,
    “The fear of the Lord—that is wisdom,
    and to shun evil is understanding.”


I was the smartest, bravest person I knew. I mean I had just received my first promotion and I was now only twenty two levels beneath the CEO. I was confident in my world and no one could tell me otherwise.

  • Sometimes I think more highly of myself.
  • GOD wants me to value HIS power.

  • Sometimes I think it’s my wisdom that got me where I am.
  • GOD wants me to know it is only HIM who raises people up.

  • Sometimes I think I can make it on my own.
  • GOD wants me to rely on HIM and turn things over to HIM and let HIM do a marvelous work.

Seeking wisdom means seeking the fear of the LORD. I don’t mean to view GOD as a sadistic moniker rather I should place HIS values higher than my ambitions, relationships or status. GOD understands the way to wisdom. I will follow HIM to HIS fruit.
