He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding; he reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with him. —Daniel 2:21-22

But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. —John 14:26

            It is our Lord God Almighty who gives wisdom.  All wisdom and knowledge comes from Him.  Mankind thinks so highly of itself that it thinks it comes up with knowledge.  It does not.  It would know nothing or have nothing if it were not for our Lord.

            Those in power also think that it is by their doing that they are in power.  It was not.  They would not be in power unless our Lord desired them to be as He is fulfilling His purposes.  What mankind does in the darkness, thinking they are getting away it, well they are not.  Our God knows what goes on in the darkness as well as the light.  Nothing escapes His notice.

            So it is with us brother and sister.  It is through God’s Holy Spirit that we learn what God wants us to learn.  He also gives power to be and do what God desires (Acts 1:9).  As followers of Jesus we cannot do anything in our own strength that honors God.  Oh, that we would listen as His Holy Spirit teaches us and be faithful to what He reveals to us.

Yes, Dear Father, may I be faithful to what You teach me and may this be so in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4x8TZiwPGa0
