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 of health related issues due to the coronavirus is causing a lot of agitation for everyone to deal with. There is a whole lot of shaking going on and there doesn’t seem to be any signs of diminishing any time soon. As children of God we have access to inside information that gives us insight how everything is going to turn out and how to navigate through these unpredictable times. The prophet Isaiah said that what would give us stability is the wisdom and knowledge of God.
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:
- Prayer Ephesians 1:16-18; James 1:5.
- The Scriptures 2 Timothy 3:16, 17.
- Our spirit 1 Corinthians 1:30; 2:9, 10.
- Wise counsel Proverb 11:14; Proverb 13:20.
- Observing natural creation Proverb 30:24-28; Romans 1:20.
