Wisdom

“Does the hawk take flight by your wisdom and spread its wings toward the south?”

—Job 39:26

 

My wisdom.

What is that?

A pastor friend once made this statement in our home:

“There is no wisdom apart from that of Christ.”

I have always remembered that statement, because it rings true in my heart.

The hawk I photographed yesterday at the lake was beautiful.

Stately, in fact.

Although he was perched, I knew at any moment he could fly away, far from my view.

Who taught him that?

Who gave him wings that function so perfectly as to lift him high in the air and carry him swiftly on the wind?

I didn’t.

It’s not from any wisdom I have.

It is by God’s wisdom that the hawk exists.

It is by God’s wisdom that he can fly.

Every day I must seek to trust God’s wisdom and not my own.
