It has often happened in the history of man’s warfare that a clever strategy has won against superior equipment. But that is still earthly wisdom. In the spiritual realm, the wisdom of God found in Scripture is mightier than all the weapons of the enemy. But in any work for God, one sinner left unchecked, and in a position of authority especially, can cause great harm.
Yours, Lord, is The true Wisdom. Your Wisdom is little esteemed, even despised by men, but the supposed wisdom of man is foolishness in Your sight. Godly wisdom will teach us to depart from iniquity, but one sin clinging stubbornly to our hearts can wreak havoc in our lives even when we have much godly wisdom. Cleanse us LORD, free us, turn us around and bring us knowledge of Your Essence, Amen.
