"Knowledge Is Power." (Proverbs 2:6) For the LORD gives wisdom; From His mouth come knowledge and understanding.
When it comes to sound judgement in the political race, President Obama needs the counsel of the Holy Spirit more than he needs the cousel of his aids. When it come to our races - whatever they might be - we too certainly need the knowledge and understanding that can only come from the mouth of God. This is called WISDOM. How can we work together and bring about equality, justice, community growth and development with our own little finite theories and trajectories? How can we possibly raise responsible and God fearing kids and maintain healthy relationships without the Lord's wisdom? The answer is simple: there's no way we can make it without Him.
In times like these we need a Savior who stores up sound wisdom for the upright and is a shield to those who walk uprightly. Without His wisdom we find ourselves doing the best we can but never excelling and certainly never tapping into the glory that only wisdom can usher in.
Thank You Lord for granting wisdom to the world powers (and even more to your saints) in order to to help us understand righteousness and justice. Amen.
