Dailies~ In His Word
August 13, 2019

There is a scripture that says that God will use the simple things of this world to confound the wise. I like to joke that I am the simple thing, because I tend to frustrate some very smart people with my simplistic approach to Christ and living the life my God has called me to live. Wisdom from above is pure, but that of the world, not so much.
For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the prudence of the prudent I will reject. Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this world? Hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?  For seeing that in the wisdom of God the world, by wisdom, knew not God, it pleased God, by the foolishness of our preaching, to save them that believe.
1 Corinthians 1:19-21
The wisdom from above is different, it is the one thing that is pure and whole and it only comes through the Holy Spirit speaking to and through us. We can’t even begin to grasp the things of God without Him explaining to us through His Spirit.
But, as it is written: That eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him. But to us God hath revealed them, by this Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yea, the deep things of God. For what man knows the things of a man, but the spirit of a man that is in him? So the things also that are of God no man knows, but the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of this world, but the Spirit that is of God; that we may know the things that are given us from God. 1 Corinthians 2:10-12

Heavenly Father, We thank you for granting us the discernment through Your Holy presence in our lives. Help us to lead by example and bring others to your door step. In Jesus’ name, amen.
