Today is Your Best Day Because of God's Wisdom
O LORD, how manifold are thy works! In wisdom hast thou made them all. The earth is full of thy riches. Psalm 104:24 KJV
God is wise. Everything He does for you is done in wisdom. Every decision He makes on your behalf is done in wisdom. God has perfect wisdom, which means that it is impossible for Him to make a mistake and that He never needs to redo or undo something He has done. God's wisdom means that He never takes a chance or makes a guess. God's wisdom is complete. He never gains wisdom or grows in wisdom, because He has all wisdom.
God's wisdom also means that He is skilled and that He is an expert in all He does. He is not a rookie who doesn't have enough experience, or an apprentice who is lacking in skills when it comes to managing your life.
I once went to get a medical test at a hospital. I was sent to an X-ray room where the test was going to be conducted. When I arrived in the room I was met by two nurses. One nurse introduced me to the other nurse and told me she was a new trainee and would be assisting in the procedure. The first thing that the trainee was asked to do was to put an IV into a vein in the top of my hand.
The trainee was very nice and pleasant, but because she didn't have a lot of experience she was very nervous. I hoped my smile would reassure her. She tried her best to successfully get the IV into my vein, but could not do it. At that point the skilled nurse stepped in and took over the rest of the procedure. She was able to hook up the IV with great ease and confidence.
God's hands are more skilled than a great surgeon;
They are more tender than a caring nurse;
They are more precise than a fine diamond cutter;
They are more creative than the finest artist or designer.
God's wisdom also means that He works in very practical ways in your life. God is your wise mentor, your practical helper, and your patient instructor. If your life was like a house, it would be built by a master builder; if our life was like a business, it would be run under the guidance of perfect management; if your life was like a tapestry, not a stitch would be misplaced or forgotten.
Today is your best day because God's wisdom is your portion, and He is skillfully working things out according to the counsel of His own will.
