STAND ON THE WISDOM OF GOD
“Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to naught.” 1 Corinthians 2:6
In 1 Corinthians 2:4, Paul said I was with you in weakness and fear, and my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not stand on the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. The wisdom of men has margin for failure. It will tell you, if you don’t have man to help you, then you cannot succeed; it will tell you that you are going to die of that sickness because medical diagnosis says so. The wisdom of men tells you, you can’t have that baby because you don’t have a womb and it tells you that you can’t succeed because you don’t have a helper or that you cannot marry because you are too old. But Paul said your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men.
I am so concerned that many people believe a doctor more than God. That’s the problem; you believe the words of a mere man more than the word of Jehovah. When mere man makes a promise to you, you rehearse it every day, but when God makes a promise, you doubt it and throw it into the dustbin. If you are ever going to receive anything from God, you must remove all doubt from your heart and believe His word. You must believe like Paul that it is impossible for God to lie because He has sworn by His word and backed it up by an oath. Hebrews 11:6 says “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him”.
Beloved, understand that the wisdom of men will fail, that is why we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom which God had before ordained unto our glory. There is a wisdom, which God has ordained for your glory to honour you as you walk in it. The princes of this world including the devil have no clue of this wisdom; that is why it is a mystery. It is not taught by men, but taught expressly by the Holy Spirit. 1 Corinthians 2:13 says “….we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth; comparing spiritual things with spiritual”. As you continue to walk in this wisdom you will never fail. Your testimony is guaranteed in Jesus name.
