Time Astonished By Wisdom
Oh, the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! Romans 11:33
The Bible teaches that “the foolishness of God is wiser” than the cleverest human wisdom (1 Corinthians 1:25). “For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know Him, God was pleased through the foolishness” of the message of a suffering Saviour to save “those who believe” (v 21).
God always has ways to astonish us. Instead of the triumphant king the world would expect, the Son of God came as a suffering servant and died a humbling death by crucifixion—before He was raised in unsurpassable glory.
In God’s wisdom, humility is valued over pride and love shows its worth in undeserved mercy and kindness. Through the cross, our unconquerable Messiah became the ultimate victim, in order to “save completely” (Hebrews 7:25) all who place their faith in Him!
1 Corinthians 1:18-25.
Heavenly Father, I praise You for the wisdom of Your ways. Help me to trust You and walk humbly with You today. I ask this in the Lord's name. Amen.
