Taught of God

When Elihu, the young man who wisely waited till Job's three friends had finished arguing with him, said (Job 32:8), "There is a spirit in man: and the inspiration of the Almighty giveth them understanding," he set forth a great truth, for only as we are inspired by God, Spirit, Mind, can we gain that most priceless of gifts, spiritual understanding. Elihu evidently apprehended this great fact so clearly that his wise and loving counsel to Job turned that individual's thoughts in the right direction, and he received his healing. He gained the true understanding of God's nature, an understanding which had been hidden from him by self-righteousness and by preconceived false notions about God.

Many centuries later the Apostle Paul encouraged his pupil Timothy in similar vein, saying (II Tim. 3:16,17), "All scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works."
