Where Does Understanding Dwell?
Job 28:20,23-24, “Where then does wisdom come from? Where does understanding dwell? God understands the way to it and He alone knows where it dwells, for He views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens.”When faced with hardship, we often ask every question imaginable. But, ultimately, we end at “Why?” We long for an audible voice, a message in the sky, a clear sign that will lead us to the answers we long for. But wisdom and understanding are often elusive as we run through options, possibilities, and our own limited reasoning.God doesn’t always tell us why, but He is always trustworthy. In Job’s case, God allowed hardship to come. Job wasn’t privy to the big picture — nor did he know the blessings to come — but he chose to trust God. Despite everything he’d lost and endured, he trusted in who he knew God to be.What are you struggling with to understand today? What big picture question are you uncertain about and searching for answers to? Whatever it is, rely on God’s wisdom and trust that He is at work in your life — even though the solution is beyond your grasp!
Lord, Help me recognize true wisdom comes from You, alone. Please give me discernment and understanding today, that my life and my actions may be a LIGHT that brings You glory. Amen.
