Proverbs 8:29-31 When he gave to the sea his decree, that the waters should not pass his commandment: when he appointed the foundations of the earth: Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him; Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.
Which came first, was it the Chicken, or the egg? This is an age-old debate for people who do not take the Bible literally. The answer is simple. God created animals, not embryos. Therefore, the chicken was created, and she delivered the egg.
Now let’s ask this question. One of our verses today says that God, and wisdom were brought up together. Just like old friends, or neighbors. So, which do you believe was around first, wisdom to guide God, or God to guide wisdom?
If God were first with no wisdom, He would not have known to create wisdom. If there was no wisdom, how could even God know to make everything which ever was? Wisdom had to be around to help in the process of thinking up all the stuff God designed, which we take for granted. However, if God were not there, what need would there ever be for wisdom?
OK so it’s another trick question, like the chicken and egg question. The answer, God has always been. He had no beginning for anything to be before Him. So therefore, if wisdom, and God were brought up together, this would mean wisdom always was, and, was always with God. God therefore has always had all wisdom.
If this is true, and it is, why would anyone try to outsmart God? Why do people want to make another way of salvation, aside from what God, with all wisdom, has already laid out? Now those are questions without any really good answers!
We need to trust in the Lord with all our heart, and not lean on our own understanding. Even that little bit of wisdom we have, that also comes from God!
