To Whom Does Almighty God Grant His Power And Wisdom?

When I become afraid and overwhelmed by the evil in this world, I am greatly encouraged by God’s promises. He reminds me about WHO He entrusts with HIS wisdom and power:

“Brothers, consider your calling: Not many are wise from a human perspective, not many powerful, not many of noble birth. Instead, God has chosen what is foolish in the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen what is weak in the world to shame the strong. God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world—what is viewed as nothing—to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no one can boast in His presence. But it is from Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became God-given wisdom for us—our righteousness, sanctification, and redemption, in order that, as it is written: The one who boasts must boast in the Lord.” ‭‭

(1 Corinthians‬ ‭1‬:‭26‬-‭31)‬ ‭‬‬ 

You see, we only become afraid when, in our pride, we begin to live independently from God. We must make God our greatest repository of living hope. Otherwise, we are on our own. We’re not safe there. The enemy is waiting to destroy us; and on his turf without God—we’re no match for our enemy. Our pride in our own strength and wisdom will quickly separate us from God’s presence. 

But close to God, we are invigorated with the knowledge that we can do ALL things through Christ. 

We must constantly be reminding ourselves that our greatest strength and wisdom are in GOD. We must reject our tendency to live independently from Him. We must give God thanks for all things; and in this humility of heart, we will be drawn deeply into His presence. He is our greatest source of confidence, power and wisdom.

So, my friend, today, when you look around and see the rich, wise, powerful, and those who seem to “have it all,” don’t envy or cower in fear. Jesus didn’t. Even though He was a social and religious reject, He knew the truth—that the Spirit who resided within Himself was more powerful and wise than the crowd who surrounded Him. He was confident in who He was. His gift of salvation enables us to be confident in who He made us. 

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

(‭‭II Timothy‬ ‭1‬:‭7‬)‬‬
