"From everlasting I was established, from the beginning, from the earliest times of the earth" (Proverbs 8:23 NASB). The wisdom we receive from God has a timeless quality. Wisdom is describing how God installed His wisdom in this world from the very beginning. As long as the world has existed, Wisdom has existed. What God has declared as wise has always been wise and will always be wise. This is how words written 2,000 to 3,500 years ago can still have a deep impact on the lives of men and women today--they are still true and applicable. We can trust that God's advice will always be the best advice.
