In Wisdom You Have Made Them All

In Wisdom You Have Made Them All

We can consider our eyes — how they take in their surroundings,  transmit that information  to the brain,  and the brain interprets it all,  so that we are enabled  to function as human beings  in this world.     It is a miraculous wonder — as are all parts  of the body.

A wisdom beyond our comprehension  created our bodies,  all the animals,  birds,  insects,  plants,  atmosphere,  and absolutely everything.     Psalm 104:24  sings,

O LORD,  how many are Your works!
In wisdom  You have made them all;
The earth is full  of Your possessions.

And,  Proverbs 3:19  proclaims,

The LORD  by wisdom  founded the earth,
By understanding  He established the heavens
.

That’s as simply  as it can be put.     We just need  to shut our mouths  at the wonder of it all.     We can’t create anything  as wondrous  as the creation we live in — or the creation we are.     But,  one thing we do know.     Our lives here are short.     Psalm 90:12 is a prayer  we all need to pray  every day:

So teach us  to number our days,
That we may present  to You  a heart of wisdom.

When we do die,  we have to face our Creator  and answer to Him  for the way we’ve lived.     As we look around us,  it’s pretty obvious  we are not the all-knowing,  all-powerful being — like God is.     God  is going to ask us  why we were not wise enough  to look at all of His creation around us  and humbly worship Him,  as is His due.

All the miracles  of God’s power  can be seen all around us  every day.     We don’t have an excuse  for dismissing God  in our lives.     If we choose  to be so arrogant and unwise  that we have no respect  for the Almighty,  then we need to think  about the truths  in Proverbs 9:12,

If you are wise,  you are wise  for yourself,
And if you scoff,  you alone  will bear it.

When we are wise enough  to honor and worship the LORD  for who He is,  we will stay  on the path  to salvation.    But,  if we choose  to scoff at God’s word,  we will bear our punishment alone.     We are responsible  for our own response to God.     Nobody else can believe and honor God  in our behalf.

As we are daily confronted  by all sorts of worldly influences,  that are striving  to take us away from honoring God,  these influences make out  like they are smart,  cool,  in-the-know,  popular,  successful, etc. — and they cockily insinuate  that we need to learn  to be smart,  like they are.     They do seem  to be able to do all sorts of things  without any consequences  or fears,  so we wonder  what we might be missing.     Proverbs 12:15  wants us  to face the facts  about these worldly attitudes:

The way of a fool is right  in his own eyes,
But a wise man is he  who listens to counsel.

It doesn’t matter  how self-confident the godless fools  in this world act.     They will always boldly and proudly pretend  they are right.     If we have any wisdom at all,  we will be listening  to the wisdom  of our Creator and Savior.     The unbelievers  have always mocked God  in this life.     But,  this earthly life is very short.     Come Judgment Day,  every single unbeliever will discover the truth  of Proverbs 21:30,

There is no wisdom  and no understanding
And no counsel  against the LORD.

No matter how bold the unbeliever is  on earth,  they will all have to bow down  to the LORD  on Judgment Day  and admit their foolishness.     Sadly,  it will be too late  for amends.

But,  to all those  who now realize the awesome wonders  of God  in all of His Creation  and plan of salvation  through faith in Jesus Christ alone  there is a different scenario.     To everyone  who wants to draw near  to God  in honor and worship,  God says  in Proverbs 19:8,

He who gets wisdom  loves his own soul;
He who keeps understanding  will find good.

Do you love your own soul enough  to confess sins,  repent,  and live  according to God’s word?     It’s something called self-respect.

Take good care of yourself.     You will be glad you did.

As we gladly look  to our Lord  for the strength,  hope,  and help we need,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  thank You  for tenderly watching over us  and guiding us  in Your ways.     May we always know You  as our Good Shepherd  and Savior.”

Love,
Margaret
