“The Lord giveth wisdom: out of His mouth cometh knowledge and understanding,” and “when wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee.” “The wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.” “Christ, in whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge,” and “of Him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom.” “Be not wise in your own conceits.” “For this cause we … pray for you … that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding,” “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.” “Where shall wisdom be found? And where is the place of understanding. … Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; and to depart from evil is understanding.” “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God!”
Wisdom is found only in Him;
It is not native to man;
He wants to guide and direct us,
And as we submit He can.

“Unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” “Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into Thy lips: therefore God hath blessed Thee forever,” for “being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted Him, and given Him a name which is above every name: that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” “His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ, when He raised Him from the dead, and set Him at His own right hand in the heavenly places. … And hath put all things under His feet.” “Never man spake like this Man.” “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,” and “my Lord and my God,” “who loved me, and gave Himself for me.” “I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save,” “a just God and a Savior; there is none beside Me.” “What then shall I do with Jesus which is called Christ?”
The dear and lovely Son of God
Bore our sins upon the tree;
What then will you do with Jesus,
Who suffered to set you free.

This was Pharaoh’s response to the request of Moses to let the children of Israel “go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the Lord our God, as He shall command us.” The “three days” speak of death and resurrection, and God wants those who have been “redeemed … with the precious blood of Christ” to “reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Satan will say to us regarding our separation that “ye shall not go very far away.” In other words, “Don’t be too spiritual.” But God says, “Go three days’ journey into the wilderness,” remembering that by “the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ … the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.” “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God.” “Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
How close to the world may I walk,
And still bring glory to God?
The world that crucified God’s Son
And hates those who trust God’s Word.

“Ye were sometime darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.” “This I say therefore, and testify in the Lord, that ye henceforth walk not as other Gentiles walk, in the vanity of their mind,” for “if we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: but if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin,” so “that ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.” “As ye have therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk ye in Him,” for “we are buried with Him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.” “This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.” So shall “ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,” and “walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto His kingdom and glory.” “He that saith he abideth in Him ought himself also so to walk, even as He walked.”
If we “walk in newness of life,”
Looking carefully how we tread,
We honor and glorify Him,
Our Lord who was raised from the dead.

The stones for Solomon’s temple were sized and shaped before being brought to the temple site, “before it was brought thither.” God is presently building a temple also, a temple made of “lively stones … built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.” We believers, “as lively stones,” are being “built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone; in whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto a holy temple in the Lord.” One day these stones will be “brought thither,” at “the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and … our gathering together unto Him,” and then it will be seen that each “living stone” was “made ready before it was brought thither.” This is why God sometimes permits His redeemed ones to be “troubled on every side … distressed … perplexed … persecuted … cast down.” So “think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you … but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when His glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.”
A temple built of living stones
Has God designed us to be,
Shaped by the pressures of this life,
Fitted for eternity.

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.” So “honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.” “The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself.” “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” “There is that maketh himself rich, yet hath nothing: there is that maketh himself poor, yet hath great riches.” “Remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how He said, It is more blessed to give than to receive.”
What we lay in store in heaven
Is secure forevermore;
It cannot be marred or stolen;
Thieves cannot enter that door.

There come times of perplexity in the lives of all of God’s children, when we know not which way we should turn, nor what we should do. The above verse does not apply to one who refuses God’s will, but to one “that feareth the Lord, that obeyeth the voice of His servant,” who is the Lord Jesus Christ. He said, “I am the light of the world: he that followeth Me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” There are times when we must have immediate light on a situation, and we pray, “Bow down Thine ear to me; deliver me speedily.” At other times, for our good and His glory, He permits us to be “in darkness” and to have “no light.” In such times as that, “Thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.” Beware of trying to make your own light by human wisdom and ingenuity. “Behold, all ye that kindle a fire, that compass yourselves about with sparks: walk in the light of your fire, and in the sparks that ye have kindled. This shall ye have of Mine hand; ye shall lie down in sorrow.” So “wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the Lord.”
Are we groping in the darkness,
With no light to show us the way?
Wait upon “the God of all grace”;
He will change your night into day.

Apart from Christ, all are spiritually “dead in trespasses and sins.” In the Garden of Eden, “the Lord God commanded the man, saying … of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.” But “the woman … took of the fruit … and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” “Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned,” so we hear the Savior saying, “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth My word, and believeth on Him that sent Me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.” “And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses,” and “we know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren.” So “neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.”
Dead to God, without any hope,
In Adam, condemned and lost,
But now alive in Christ Jesus,
Redeemed at so great a cost.

That little favor shown to one in need, that kind word spoken to a discouraged soul, that word of witness to our Lord, quietly spoken, that time spent in secret prayer, how much are these small things worth? They are worth much to Him who said that “whosoever shall give you a cup of water to drink in My name, because ye belong to Christ, verily I say unto you, he shall not lose his reward.” We live in a day of so-called big things in spiritual circles. There are so-called “super-churches” with multitudes of people in them. Many evangelists tabulate figures to show their success. Bigness is equated with spirituality, and Christians are told that unless they are “productive” they are failures. Many is the one “who hath despised the day of small things.” But God has not “despised the day of small things.” Whatever little thing is done for the Lord, He still says, as He did of Mary of Bethany, “She hath done what she could,” and “inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have done it unto Me.” “He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much,” and “God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labor of love, which ye have showed toward His name.”
That little deed done for the Lord,
Perhaps unnoticed by men,
Stands eternally in heaven,
And does His approval win.

Note that the twelve apostles were chosen first “that they should be with Him,” and then “that He might send them forth to preach.” Sad to say, many of us Christians seek to go out in service for the Lord before we have been in His presence in fellowship and worship, and thus our service is fleshly, and also without any abiding results. Our Lord said, “I am the door: by Me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.” It was only after Isaiah said that “mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts,” that he could say, “Here am I, send me.” Is this not the reason for much of our spiritual powerlessness? We think that we must always be doing something. We forget that the Lord not only said, “Go ye”; He also said, “Come ye yourselves apart.” “They that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.” They “shall go in and out.” Let us be sure that we go in unto Him before we go out to others. Then we can say, “I will go in the strength of the Lord God: I will make mention of Thy righteousness, even of Thine only.”
We have no message to carry,
Except it come from the Lord,
As we tarry in His presence,
And feed our hearts on His Word.
