My Name Is Wisdom


by John C. Westervelt


“Then I, Wisdom, was beside Him, as a master workman; and I was daily His delight, rejoicing always before Him, rejoicing in the world, His earth, and having my delight in the sons of men.”

Proverbs 8:30-31


     Let the Holy Spirit help you get acquainted with Wisdom and the treasures she holds for you.  Listen as Wisdom tells her story.

     My name is Wisdom.  You can read about me in the writings of wise King Solomon.  This king loved women, especially a wise one, so he personified my story.

     The Lord possessed me, Wisdom, at the beginning of His design of the earth and all that is on it.  I urge you to take my instructions, rather than silver, and knowledge, rather than gold.  I, Wisdom, am better than jewels.  I walk in the way of righteousness in the midst of the paths of justice.

     In my early days with the Lord, there were no springs abounding with water.  There were no hills or mountains.  Solomon did not record, because he could not comprehend, that God had designed tectonic plates that covered the world.  It was these plates slowly bumping into each other that formed hills and mountains.

     I remained beside the Lord as a master workman with the ongoing design of His earth.  I rejoiced continuously as I worked beside Him in the miracles of His design.  The Lord seemed in no hurry as He prepared the land and the waters for life.

     First He created many types of plants, all of which could absorb energy from the light of the sun to grow and propagate themselves.

     Next, God created simple, little creatures that could live with nourishment from plants.  There was never a rush as He made larger and more complex animals.

     Finally, God designed His crowning achievement – man and woman.  This was a creation with whom God could personally commune.

     Throughout the eons of time, God and I have rejoiced together.  Now He rejoices with each of you.  And that is good.
