TOPIC: Trust in God’s Power
TEXT: So that your faith might not rest in the wisdom of men (human philosophy), but in the power of God. — 1 Corinthians 2:5 (AMPC)
Education is important, but we must always keep in mind that the wisdom of God is better and more valuable than worldly education and human philosophy.
The apostle Paul was a highly educated man, but he firmly stated that it was God’s power that made his preaching valuable, not his education. I know lots of people who graduate from college with honors and degrees and have difficulty getting jobs. I also know people who have not had the opportunity to go to college who depend on God to give them favor and they end up with great jobs.
Where is your trust? Is it in God or in what you know? No matter what we know, or who we know, our trust should be in Christ alone and in His power. Paul mentioned in 1 Corinthians 1:21 that the world with all of its human wisdom and philosophy failed to know God, but He chose to reveal Himself, and save mankind through the foolishness of preaching. Sadly, we often find that the more highly educated some people are, the more difficult it is for them to have simple, childlike faith. Too much head knowledge and reasoning can actually work against us if we are not careful, because we can only know God by the Spirit and heart, not by the brain. Be sure to let your faith rest in the power of God and not in human philosophy to help in all areas of life.
PRAYER OF THE DAY:
Father God, I know educating ourselves can be a good thing, in all areas of life, but help me to always remember that Your wisdom is far more powerful than worldly knowledge. Guide me to always follow Your leading, amen.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
