Proverb for the Day 3:19-20 — Help is on the Way!

19 By wisdom the LORD laid the earth’s foundations, by understanding he set the heavens in place; 20 by his knowledge the deeps were divided, and the clouds let drop the dew.

These verses suggest that God used wisdom, understanding and knowledge in the Creation process (see also Proverbs 8). The association of these three qualities together is frequent in Proverbs and, as usual, wisdom is listed first.

They seem to come as a group, like bananas in a bunch or grapes in a cluster. When you connect to one, you can hook up with them all.

The great truth from this verse for me is that these three qualities — which participated in the Creation process — are also available to me in everyday life. If God used them to help create the heavens, the earth and the seas, they can certainly help me with my latest little problem!
