Only One Power

In the Bible there are many references to the wisdom, understanding, and power of God. In Isaiah (40:13), for instance, are the words, "Who hath directed the Spirit of the Lord, or being his counsellor hath taught him?" They draw attention to His wisdom and intelligence. In Proverbs (21:30) we read, "There is no wisdom nor understanding nor counsel against the Lord," words which emphasize God's supremacy, as well as His wisdom and understanding. And in Romans (11:33) Paul reiterates the same great truths when he writes, "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!"

Unless one understands that God is perfect in wisdom and supreme in knowledge and power, one does not truly know God. And not knowing the nature of God aright, how can one rightly honor and obey Him; how can one expect to receive the blessings which only a correct understanding of Him can bestow? Mankind must learn that nothing can compare with a knowledge of God, and that this knowledge should therefore be sought by them above all else.
