Proverbs 8:26 (Mini Sermon)


26. Pro 8:26 - "While as yet he had not made the earth, nor the fields, nor the highest part of the dust of the world." A. While as yet he had not made the earth, i. Wisdom is speaking (Pro 8:1, 12). ii. She is continuing to explain how she was present before God created the earth including the oceans (Pro 8:24) and mountains (Pro 8:25). iii. Before God made the earth He possessed wisdom (Pro 8:22), and exalted it (Pro 8:23). iv. Since God used wisdom to create the earth (Pro 3:19), it follows that she was with him while as yet he had not made the earth. B. nor the fields, i. The fields were created on the third day of creation (Gen 1:11-13). ii. God used wisdom to design grass and fruit trees of the field. iii. In His wisdom God created the fields to feed and sustain man (Ecc 5:9; Deut 20:19). C. nor the highest part of the dust of the world. i. God's wisdom was brought forth before He created the highest mountains on earth. ii. Even the very dust of the earth from the deepest valleys to the tops of the highest mountains was created by God in His infinite wisdom. iii. Dust n. - 1. a. Earth or other solid matter in a minute and fine state of subdivision, so that the particles are small and light enough to be easily raised and carried in a cloud by the wind; any substance comminuted or pulverized; powder. iv. From that dust, God in his infinite wisdom created man (Gen 2:7).
