Scripture Reading: I TImothy 1: 17
"The Lord by wisdom hath founded the earth, by understanding hath He established the heavens. By His knowledge the depths are broken up, and the clouds drop down the dew" (Proverbs 3:19, 20). These words speak of the incomparable, transcendent wisdom of God. Man receives wisdom from God as He wills to dispense it; but the wisdom of man is of itself ineffectual. "For it is written, 1 will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. Where isthe wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?" (I Corinthians 1:19, 20).
The exercise of God's wisdom for His own eternal purpose is of vital interest to us who are members of the Body of Christ. Our apostle explains: "Unto me, who am the least of all saints, is this grace given, that 1 should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; and to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the Church the manifold wisdom of God, according to the eternal purpose which He purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Ephesians 3:8-10).
What a spiritual destiny is ours! We, the Body of Christ, the instrument of revelation which will enlighten the very angelic beings themselves regarding the culmination of God's eternal purpose! "Now unto ... the only wise God be honor and glory for ever and ever. Amen" (I Timothy 1:17).
