Reliant K sings about people trying to reinvent the wheel in their classic song Wit’s All Been Done Before found on the Birds and the Bee Sides album. Synonymous with humor and intelligence, wit is something King Solomon references in the Old Testament. “What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun, ” Ecclesiastes 1:9.
If this is true, society is at wit’s end. Unfortunately, history is a vicious cycle in which most societies self-destruct, opening the door for another to take its place. Unless one studies past civilizations, their demise is forthcoming as most cultures repeat the same mistakes of the past. This is the state of Psalm 107:27, as the subjects mentioned were at wit’s end.
Beyond the mysticism of this new age, there is a Counselor awaiting those who have reached this destination. In the darkness of present day, there is hope on the horizon, John 16:12-15. While I have been confined to another dead end street, I am ready to breakout, set free by a spiritual power. May the words of Jesus in John 4:23-24 be fulfilled today, leading God’s followers once they reach wit’s end!
