For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. 1 Corinthians 1:25
Over the centuries of mankind, there have been some men that have been considered very wise. They were ‘wisest’ enough to have been remembered over time. People look back on what they said and marvel at it and hold on to their sayings.
Very few people hit a level of wisdom in which many around the world even recognize. Some may appear to be wise to a few people around them, but do not have a large following.
Paul tells the people of Corinth that God’s wisdom and strength is greater than any that man can produce.
The wisdom of man is very limited. No man has experienced everything that could possibly be experienced. He has never learned absolutely everything about nearly anything. It only appears to be very wise, because it is often beyond that of those around him.
God is the only being in the universe that has perfect experience and knowledge. He is the only one that can qualify for perfect wisdom in every area of life. Along with having that perfect wisdom, God also made everything, giving Him the greatest strength.
In His perfect wisdom and strength, God made salvation possible for all men. He also sent His Holy Spirit to guide every believer in how to live a holy life for Him.
Instead of looking to books and other people, every believer must be looking to God for wisdom and strength. While books and people can help some, they will fall short in the end. Only God has perfect wisdom.
To most men, God’s wisdom will appear foolish, but it is because God can see the end result clearly, whereas man cannot.
You are in need of wisdom and strength in how to live your life each day for God. Do not short change yourself by looking just to the poor wisdom of man, but look to God’s perfect wisdom.
God is waiting and ready to impart some of His wisdom to you, if you ask for it. Trust that God knows what is best in every situation and do what He says. Trust that God will give you the needed strength to get through each and every situation He allows you to be in.
Remember that His wisdom and strength is greater than that of any person, including you.
Today I pray that you will know Jesus as your Savior; that you will trust God’s wisdom for your life; that you will trust God’s strength; that you will seek God first for every situation; and that God will reveal His wisdom to you.
