When you are a new military recruit, one of the first things you learn is when to “keep quiet,” and simply obey orders of your superiors. You would be in grave danger professionally if you spoke too soon, or when simple obedience was all that was necessary. You also would be in grave danger if you chose to blatantly disregard military orders at any time in your career.
In the kingdom of God, my biggest fear is that I would seek knowledge and wisdom, at the expense of simple obedience after careful consideration. If I do nothing, say nothing, and know nothing, other than what acknowledges Christ crucified, I would be the happiest member of God’s kingdom.
The Lord God Almighty is a God who cherishes obedience, in lieu of wisdom and power. The Lord God Almighty is a God who gives wisdom to all who seek it through the indwelling Holy Spirit Of God. The Lord God Almighty is a God of wisdom, of power, and of principle. The Lord God Almighty is El Shaddai.
