For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.
1 Corinthians 1:25
We are surrounded by the proof of our wisdom. In the past 200 years so much has been accomplished! The structure of DNA has been discovered which has led to amazing leaps forward in medicine. A man has set foot on the moon and we have seen pictures of our earth from space. We can reproduce music of an amazing quality, everyone can own a smartphone! We are living in an age where knowledge increases almost daily. But this can give us an unreal sense of our importance. It can make us feel that God is irrelevant. Our belief in our 'god given ability' can become an idol which leads us away from our creator. Putting our whole trust in God is the wisest decision we can make.
Lord, pride in our human wisdom can lead us into dark places so that even to kill a baby in the womb seems the best option. Today we come before you and admit that we need your wisdom which can lead us out of the darkness. We need your strength to carry us when our strength fails. This verse is so encouraging because we can have confidence that even though You know how foolish and fragile we are we can depend on your love. Thank you for Jesus who has taken our punishment and showered us with grace and mercy. All we need is in You and I worship You
