Information?  Yes, but where has all the wisdom gone? (30-33)

Written by Dave Schmidgall | March 13, 2010 |

“The Lord who made the earth, who formed and established it, whose name is the Lord:  Ask me and I will tell you remarkable secrets you do not know about things to come.” (33:2,3)

We’re now dealing with an age of too much information.  Crazy to think that.  Sixty years ago, digital computers made information readable.  Twenty years ago, the Internet made it reachable.  Ten years ago, the first engine crawlers made it a single database.  If you think about it organizationally, we went from the folder analogy, to the file cabinet to the library to the….well…..we’ve run out of organizational analogies.  Access to knowledge is mind-bending.

Our problem is definitely not lack of information.  Our problem is we’re being raised with a lack of discernment.  Wisdom and discernment remain rarer than ever.

So what can we take from this passage? 

The creator God, creator of the Universe, creator of everything just told us that if we ask, He’ll reveal wisdom unavailable from any other source.  If you type “wisdom” in Google, over 74 million links are discovered.  God’s essentially saying:  that doesn’t even begin to compare to the wisdom that is available to you if you simply ask.

We don’t need more information, we need a revelation from God. 

That’s not information.  That’s transformation.
