...the children of light...by attending to the word and commands of God, and being under his direction and counsel, counter work the designs of their enemies, and overturn their schemes and measures, which are brought to confusion; honesty being in the issue the best policy. However, the people of God are wiser than they(their enemies) in the best things; in the affair of salvation; in things relating to a future state, and their happiness there; which wisdom they attain unto through the Word of God, which is written for their learning; through the Scriptures, which are able to make men wise to salvation: these are the means, and no more; for it is God that is the efficient cause, or makes the means effectual, to make them wise, and wiser than others; it is owing to his divine teachings, to his Spirit and grace.An enormous amount of information is held in this one paragraph.
We are the children of light. When the children of light pay attention to the word of God, stay under God's direction, and stay under God's counsel they(the children of light) can overcome their enemies.
Honesty is to be valued.
The children of light, or the people of God, attain wisdom through the Word of God. The Bible is written for learning. The people of God gain wisdom by studying the Bible, but it is owing to God's Spirit and grace that wisdom gained.
By studying the word of God, I can attain wisdom through God's Spirit and grace.
Father God, Thank-you for the helping me to gain wisdom through studying your words in the Bible. As you helped David gain wisdom, I know that you will help me to gain wisdom. I will carry your words with me in my heart everywhere that I go. Thank you for your Spirit and your grace through which you have granted me the wisdom I learn in studying your commandments, laws, precepts, and words that are set forth in the Bible.
