THE WISDOM OF GOD
Memory Verse: 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!
-Romans 11:33
Read: 1 Corinthians 1:20-25
20 Where is the wise? where is the
scribe? where is the disputer of
this world? hath not God made
foolish the wisdom of this world?
21 For after that in the wisdom of
God the world by wisdom knew
not God, it pleased God by the
foolishness of preaching to save
them that believe.
22 For the Jews require a sign, and
the Greeks seek after wisdom:
23 But we preach Christ crucified,
unto the Jews a stumblingblock,
and unto the Greeks foolishness;
24 But unto them which are called,
both Jews and Greeks, Christ the
power of God, and the wisdom of
God.
25 Because the foolishness of God
is wiser than men; and the
weakness of God is stronger than
men.
Message:
Whenever God decides to reveal
deep things about Himself to
anyone, the human response is
always that of unspeakable
awesome surprise. Paul caught
some revelations of God and
exclaimed in Romans 11:33a that:
“O the depth of the riches both of
the wisdom and knowledge of
God!”
This is the cry of someone who
has seen beyond the physical
realm, obviously God had shown
him a little glimpse of the depth of
His knowledge and wisdom. The
Psalmist in Psalm 139:6 also
experienced this and submitted in
absolute wonder saying:
“Such knowledge is too wonderful
for me; it is high. I cannot attain
unto it,”
It is therefore not surprising that
the greatest minds among the
scientists and philosophers of this
world are incompetent to discern,
assess, or comprehend the
knowledge and wisdom of God.
“For after that in the wisdom of
God the world by wisdom knew
not God, it pleased God by the
foolishness of preaching to save
them
that believe.”
1 Corinthians 1:21
Because the all-knowing God is
also the Creator of the heavens
and earth, He knows that the
human thinking faculty is not
designed
to understand spiritual mutters and
therefore cannot comprehend the
knowledge and wisdom of a God
who is Spirit. In essence,
human logic, reasoning, science,
and philosophy are grossly
inadequate to bring man to the
saving knowledge of an immortal,
invisible, omnipotent and
omniscient God. But glory be to
God, because it pleased Him that
by the foolishness of the message
of the gospel of Jesus Christ,
anyone that believes would receive
the power of salvation and
intimacy with God. Nevertheless,
the Bible in Matthew 11:19 tells us
that wisdom has children, and the
wisdom of those children begins
with the fear of the Lord (Psalm
111:10). They are also known to
reject the wisdom of this world,
according to 2 Corinthians 1:12. As
children of wisdom, they accept
Jesus Christ the Son of the living
God as the Wisdom of God and as
Lord and Saviour. I therefore invite
you to join the children of wisdom
today by dedicating your life to
Jesus and accepting Him us your
Lord and Saviour. Taste and see
that the Lord is good. Once you
surrender your life to Him. He will
begin to make all things work out
for your good.
Prayer Point:
Father, please open my spiritual
eyes to behold wondrous things
according to the riches of your
wisdom and knowledge in Jesus’
Name.
