Dailies ~ in His Word
November 1st 2019
1 Corinthians chapter 2 speaks to us of the wisdom of faith. It is not in our human ability to have faith but the power of the God who is the very thing we have faith in; that can move a mountain, or calm a sea, heal the sick and give us the strength to go on when our heart feels like failing. The Spirit of the living God is whom we have faith in to do these things; He is the granter of our faith.
Paul said, “I was with you in weakness, in fear and in much trembling. And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of humans’ wisdom, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:3-5
 He continues on through the chapter speaking of the wisdom of trusting God with our faith not just man, and what we know; but to trust the Spirit of God to give us Godly wisdom that may not always make sense to man, but with God’s Spirit will make perfect sense. Sometimes we have to keep silent about what He reveals to us, and other times we need to speak. Paul refers to the fact that the rulers were made blind to who Jesus really was or they would not have crucified Him and thus the ultimate sacrifice would not have happened. That would mean we were still in our sin. Sometimes things have to happen in life because God has a bigger plan than we can see.  We have to trust that He knows what He is doing… after all He created the world that we live in I think He can figure out what is best for us in the long run. 
Looking back through life, and then looking ahead we can probably see a few things that God has done and how what seemed bad was made good for our future. Though we cannot know the full future until we live in we can know that our future with Christ our Lord will be ‘to the good’ as long as we put our faith, in His wisdom and not man’s.
Let’s think on these things… in Jesus’ love, we put our trust, hope, and faith.
Heavenly Father, thank you for Godly wisdom for Godly direction and for Godly faith, love and hope that brings us and You joy when we accept and spread them. Thank you for those you put in our lives, even if its for a short time, in Jesus’ name, amen.
