THEME: The Wisdom Of God
PASSAGE: 1 Corinthians 2:5-13
HYMN: MHB 360-HAPPY the man that finds the grace
MEMORY VERSE: 1 Corinthians 2:7 “But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory”
Some people have ventured into the orbit with the sole aim of finding God and His abode! They failed to find Him. God surpasses the entire universe in all that He does. No one has been able to fathom the depth of His greatness, which is unsearchable (Psa. 145:3). Paul wrote in his letter to the (Romans 11:33) “O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are His judgments, and His ways past finding out!”
In His wisdom, God made all things and none of them is with any blemish until the great deception by the devil. Let us consider the human physiology and examine its functionality, from the complex nervous system to the food canal of the digestive system, the circulatory and the reproductive systems in man. Then ask: How do these function without any human intervention? The motor engine needs servicing, oiling and other maintenance processes, but the human body needs no one to direct or control it! What wisdom can do that?
The wisdom of God is shown in our universe and Psalm 19 makes us know that the heavens declare the glory of God and the firmament shows forth His handiwork. This calls for us to consider God in all we do and ask Him for direction and instructions. For the LORD gives wisdom: out of His mouth comes knowledge and understanding (Pro. 2:6).
Let us seek the wisdom of the Lord in all we do and the choices we make. We need to also understand that the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of men, 1Cor.1:25.
Therefore, in choosing a life partner, making business plans, etc, let the wisdom of God guide you so that you do not run into an error. Only God is all-knowing and all-wise.
PRAYER: Lord, as You endowed Solomon with Your wisdom, grant it to me, too, so that I may succeed in all I do all the days of my life in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
