What does God breaking up the deeps and having the sky drip with dew have to do with walking in wisdom? These comments from Proverbs 3:20 are a part of two verses that speak of God creating the world. But they are also a larger part of an argument from the writer of Proverbs as to why we should look to God for His wisdom. His argument is that if God can do these marvelous things through the creation - then we should know that He is more than able to meet any need that we wil ever face.
We read first here that by God's knowledge the deeps were broken up. The only other place a phrase like this makes sense is in Genesis 7:11 where we read that during the flood the fountains of the great deep bursted open. Later in Genesis 8:w we read that these "foundtains of the deep" were closed. The only other time in Scripture the "deep" is mentioned in this way is as a description of Israel walking through the Red Sea during the Exodus. It was by the wisdom of God that the Lord broke open these places where water was stored in the oceans. Some wonder where all the water came from that caused the earth to flood during the time of Noah - and evidently it came from rain and from huge undergroud reservoirs of water that were released when these deeps were broken up. Today, we are just beginning to be able to do deep-water drilling in the oceans. but the thought of going to the deepest parts of the oceans - and releasing huge reservoirs of water are beyond us still. But God, by His knowledge, broke them up and released all that water.
God then turns from the massive in the realms of water, to the very small. It is also by God's wisdom that the skys drip dew. The dew is a fascinating thing to understand. This process happens each night as cold meets hot in the atmosphere - and the result is the condensation of water into dew. We can predict when dew will happen - but the wisdom that produced the process whereby dew happens is astounding. It would take generating the entire atmosphere and weather systems that function like clockwork around our globe. When you consider for a moment that God has dew forming pretty much 24 hours a day - every day we live - you begin to see the magnitude of having dew drip from the skies.
What God is trying to get us to grasp is that He is incredibly smart - actually infinitely smart - really, He is the originator of all knowledge of all things - there is nothing He did not know, nor is there anything that He will ever NOT know. Therefore, we would be wise if we turned to the God Who can break open the deeps, as well as cause the skies to drip with dew. If Almighty God can do these things by His wisdom, do you not think He can handle whatever problem we are currently trying to solve without it?
