I thought to myself, “Age should speak first; those advanced in years will teach wisdom.” But alas, it turns out it is the spirit in a man, not age, and the breath of the Highest One within him that lends understanding. Job 32:7-8 (VOICE)

Someone told me once that everyone will grow older, but not everyone will grow wiser or more mature. As this young man in our verse today waited for the aged to speak wisdom, he found that it’s not how old you are, but “the breath of the Highest One within him that lends understanding.”

Are you giving God a chance to breathe His life and understanding into you? As the minutes of your life pass you are either growing closer to Him by seeking Him out and listening to His words, or you are simply drifting along wherever time and circumstances might take you. Choose to draw closer to Him today…
