Isaiah 33:6 And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation: the fear of the Lord is his treasure.
The instability, uncertainty, and volatility within the political and economic structures of our day is causing a lot of agitation for everyone to deal with. What is going on in many voters, politics, and our political parties is not showing any signs of diminishing any time soon. The prophet Isaiah said that what would give us stability is the wisdom and knowledge of God, not political parties.
We need to be in our Bibles everyday so that the loudest thing speaking inside our head is the wisdom and knowledge of God. This manifold wisdom Ephesians 3:10 is insight perfectly suited to our situation to stabilize us and strengthen us in times of manifold tests and trials 1 Peter 1:6. A wise man will hear and have an ear for this WISDOM (Proverb 1:5) through:
Ephesians 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers;17 That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:18 The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,
James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.
- THE SCRIPTURES
2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: 17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
- OUR SPIRIT
1 Corinthians 1:30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.
- WISE COUNSEL Proverb 11:14; Proverb 13:20.
Proverb 11:14 Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counsellors there is safety.
Proverb 13:20 He that walketh with wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.
- OBSERVING NATURAL CREATION
Romans 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Proverb 30:24 There be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: 25 The ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer; 26 The conies are but a feeble folk, yet make they their houses in the rocks; 27 The locusts have no king, yet go they forth all of them by bands; 28 The spider taketh hold with her hands, and is in kings’ palaces.
All of these give us access to wisdom from God and create stability within us in these perilous times. The world may unravel before our eyes but we can remain stable because of what the wisdom of God imparts to us inside.
