“For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” 1 Corinthians 1:25
Most people like to think that they are strong and wise, especially men. ?All over the world people are honored for their strength and wisdom. Young people are especially honored when they do something that takes extreme strength to accomplish. Tons of book are written with wisdom on how to live life and do things.
There are work out gyms located all over every city. People like to build up their strength. Some are doing it just to have the huge muscles or better muscle tone, others do it to stay in great shape for a long time.
Being in shape allows a person to be able to have the power to do things on their own. Very few people like to rely on someone else to get a job done. Yet, even with the strongest man in the world, his strength is less than the weakest point of God.
God has created everything you see, which shows extreme strength. Jesus has also conquered death. No matter how strong a person is, death will overtake him some day.
Along with gaining strength, men love to have wisdom. Tons of books (and now internet articles) are written on how to live life and do anything you want. Articles of wisdom are highly honored by most people.
Yet, again, the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisest human ever. As wise as man has been in inventing things, God is greater in that He also created man’s ability to invent things. God in His infinite wisdom created the heavens and the earth. He set in to motion the plan of salvation for all men. His plan of salvation was so simple and well laid out that many people refuse to believe it because it does not make sense to the human mind.
With this in mind, you can trust that God is strong enough and wise enough to help you in any situation you are in. Do not try to be in control of your life. Let God have the control. He will not make a mistake.
Will you always understand God? No. His wisdom is far past yours. His strength is far greater than yours. Just trust Him and follow Him. God does know what is best for you.
I pray today that you will trust God’s strength and wisdom; that you will stop trying to do things in your own strength and wisdom; that God will give you His strength and wisdom to do His work; and that God will draw many to Jesus through you.
