Spiritual Wisdom From The Lord
Here is your Daily Devotional Prayer for November 19, 2016 brought to you by The Plough
“But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong.
1 Corinthians 1:27
Lord our God, we come to you poor and yet rich, weak and yet strong, with the prayer that your promise may be fulfilled in Jesus Christ, our dear Lord and Savior. Let the time come when the heavens open and a new light shines over the earth, a time when people will praise and thank you and receive everlasting peace and happiness with you. Remember the many people who come into need these days. Remember our nation and all who work for the good of our country. Bless them and help them. And help the dying, O Lord our God; grant that they come to you, for they are yours. Your help will bring life out of death, joy out of grief and need. May your name be honored, dear Father in heaven, may your kingdom come and your will be done on earth as in heaven. Amen.
Daily Commentary: God did not choose the best of humanity to announce His word but those who’s hearts were clean and filled with love. There’s a big difference between spiritual wisdom and understanding. instead He choose people to serve the purposes of his glory.
Christians are considered to be the foolish, the weak, and the despised of this world but God uses us to further the message of the gospels. God has summoned us to be part of the body of Christ and through this we have unity but if He operated according to the values of society, they would never have been implemented.
To understand this, look at Isiah 55:9. We see what God is telling us. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” He does not rule by human standards but according to Barry’s Biblical Notes, “God’s wisdom has been expressed for all time in Jesus Christ. We who have trusted the crucified Christ have received the righteousness, holiness and redemption that come only from union with him.”
God knows what’s good for us. He has given us the proper wisdom and knowledge to help us grow as Christians. The true knowledge of God is the most valuable knowledge any human can acquire for without it, just pursuing knowledge for knowledge sake, without seeking to know who God is, is what the foolish do.
