The new year is upon us; not much different than the old year, just a few days older than eighteen days ago, hopefully wiser. Wisdom, truly, belongs to those who love the Lord. many speak of their ability to get along in this world, being wise about its doings, but is that wisdom? No, it can hardly be. The wisdom of this world, if we can call it wisdom, is fleeting and superficial. However, with respect to the Lord, He answers prayers, He protects, He forgives, and it is He that has said: “I will never leave thee nor forsake thee.” No matter what goes wrong in your life today, the Lord is God! No matter who is in the White House, the Kremlin, or Buckingham Palace, the Lord is God! No matter how you feel, the Lord is God! He is always in control. He is sovereign. Nothing gets by Him. Nothing takes Him by surprise! This is wisdom!
