I thought, 'Age should speak; advanced years should teach wisdom.' But it is the spirit/Spirit in a person, the breath of the Almighty that gives them understanding. It is not only the old who are wise, not only the aged who understand what is right.
Before the Holy Spirit was sent to dwell within all Christians, there was an understanding of what it meant to have God's spirit. Elihu does not have all the answers here, but I believe he is right about this. He describes having God's spirit as having "the breath of the Almighty." This is what brings us closer to God, and gives us deeper understanding.
Holy Lord, your Spirit dwells in me, and I am honored beyond words. I must try every moment to be worthy. Forgive me, Lord when I fail. Amen
