For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.1 Corinthians 1:25
What is the difference between our wisdom and Godly wisdom? As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:9) God’s thoughts and ways are well above ours, but how does Godly wisdom affect our lives? We will discuss how following the Spirit and making Godly choices benefit our current lives and lead us to eternal life.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26) Knowing all things are possible for God gives us confidence when things are out of control. God can certainly do things in our lives that we cannot do, as long as we walk in obedience to his will. God will achieve miracles in our lives through our faithful walks. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. (Deuteronomy 31:8) The Lord not only goes with us, guiding us by the Holy Spirit, but he also goes before us, taking care of things that we may never know.
Great is our Lord and abundant in strength; His understanding is infinite. (Psalm 147:5) God is omniscient, meaning he knows everything, and when he guides us he knows us better than we know ourselves. He knows the situations we are in, and he knows all the people involved. God sees the bigger picture, and he guides us based on his view and understanding.
We will experience God’s divine power in our lives if we have the faith to let him lead our lives through the Spirit, obeying his will and trusting him with all the results. This not only reveals his power in our lives but it sets us free from the world. It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. (Galatians 5:1) Trusting the Lord to lead our lives and giving him control brings us closer to God than we are to the world. This greatly increases our freedom because we are free from the turmoil of this world; we live in the Kingdom. Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. (Luke 17:21) The Kingdom, the Holy Spirit, lives in the heavenly dimension, and when our souls (our thoughts) are in the Kingdom, we are one with the Spirit. We minister to the world, with Godly wisdom from the Kingdom, from the Godly perspective and not the worldly perspective. We are one with God and we are not one with the world.
It is only by accepting Christ as our Savior, being filled with the Spirit, and walking in Godly wisdom as the Lord’s servant that we are guided into eternal life. It is impossible to have eternal life if we are prideful and walk in our own worldly wisdom.
Today seek Godly wisdom in thought, word, and action. Be quick to listen and slow to speak, taking time to seek Godly wisdom. Refrain from reacting emotionally with angry words and actions. Slow down inside and purposefully walk in Godly wisdom with a heart of love.
Let’s Pray: Lord slow me down today so that I may reflect your love and wisdom. Keep me from responding to others with angry, emotionally-driven words. Guide me in the Spirit to control my emotions and my words. Let my words be uplifting and encouraging to others. In Jesus name, Amen
