“Counsel is mine, and sound wisdom: I am understanding; I have strength.”
This is not just any other person; but a Divine Person, none other than Jesus Christ Himself. Throughout the Scriptures we learn of the attributes that dwelt within Him as He dwelt with His creation. The prophets spoke of Him, the disciples spoke to Him, and we have the opportunity for Him to speak to us through His Word.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
He is Wonderful, and He is our Counsellor though His Word. As the mighty God, He is able to guide us through any problem. He will never leave us, for He is the everlasting Father. He can comfort the storms of our lives, because He is the Prince of Peace.
“In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.”
A treasure is not a treasure if it is easily found or very common. We must seek and search for the treasures found within the pages of the Word of God. The worth of His treasures of Truth cannot be numbered.
“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding.”
We cannot lean upon our own understanding, for it will not get us very far since no good thing dwelleth within us. God gave us His Son and His Word so that we may trust in Him with all of our hearts. When we acknowledge Him, He will direct our paths through His Word so that He may give us the understanding we need.
“I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.”
Sometimes the Lord has to remind us that our strength will fade and fail, often when we need it the most. God teaches us that we must yield our strength to His everlasting strength. His grace is sufficient for any situation, and His strength is made perfect in weakness.
Seek to find the Person of Wisdom on each page you turn in your Bible today.
