GOD’S WORD FOR FEBRUARY 1 ~ ~ Job 12:8,13~ ~ “… or speak to the earth, and it shall teach you: and the fishes of the sea shall declare unto you…. With him is wisdom and strength, he hath counsel and understanding.”

In these days, with the gender confusion running rampant, and even now we have children barking like dogs, and identifying as chihuahua’s!!! Choose your gender AND your species!!!

Well, all that aside, there is a creature, who, in God’s great wisdom, really can identify and function as the opposite sex, as well as actually a different species!!!

There is a brightly colored fish called a wrasse. There are over 600 species, and they are found in all tropical or subtropical waters.

When biologists first started identifying them, they learned later that they had been identifying the females and males as two different species. So diverse the two groups were, that they don’t even look like they were related.

But as they did more research, they learned that the one species had all males, while the second species had all females. This got the biologists scratching their highly educated heads! Until they realized that they were one species.

But, wait!!! They next found that there was a third group! This one looked neither like the males, nor the females!!! (time to retire?)

And, to make matters worse, they found that schools around some small reefs had no young males. It seemed as if the males just appeared fully grown!!!! (yes, maybe it is time to retire!)

Or, they could work overtime and solve this great mystery. That’s what they did, and they found that when there is a shortage of males, one of the females will not only identify as, but actually turn into a fully functioning male!!!!

Talk about the Creator being way ahead of the rebels against Him!!!! There really is “no new thing under the sun.” Eccl 1:9

In Scripture, the word “understanding” often refers to a deep and detailed knowledge of how different things work together. The special and highly creative arrangements that God has provided for the wrasse are an excellent example of His understanding as well as the unlimited range of His imagination!

In our verse above, we are told to seek the wisdom, strength, counsel and understanding of the Lord.

He will give us that if we earnestly seek it. It’s all there in His Word, and when we’re saved, we have the Holy Spirit to guide us in understanding it.

James tells us how the Lord wants to give us wisdom: James 1:5

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”

But that takes daily diligence. As the Word says in Isaiah 28:10

“For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little:”
