Yesterday I posted a song that appeared in my Facebook ads and really struck me. It was not too long after that roaming around on Facebook through statuses and photos that I found something else that struck me just as much as that video. What made it more interesting is who I found it from, but that I shall keep to my own. Let’s just say it made me smile. Anyways, I came across this and just all of a sudden stopped. I could not stop reading it over and over.
“For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.” 1 Corinthians 1:25
Something just really strikes me, hits me inside, about that phrase. We can be as wise as ever and are strong as ever, but even then does God’s foolishness and weakness amount to more than our wisdom and strength. It sure puts a spin on things, doesn’t it? It doesn’t matter how on top of our game we are and how well off we are, God still is above us in His lowest point (not that God has many of those I would imagine).
So why does this strike me? I can think I have things handled and sometimes even feel like I know what is best. At times, I am doing really well and maybe I lose track of who is keeping me there. This is a reminder of how important God should be in my life. Sure, it reminds me of even more than that, but simply put…I can never outdo God or live without Him. Why then, do I constantly try to do things without Him or think that doing what He would want me to do is not the best option? Why do I try to run the show? I have been learning the hard way that it only causes more pain and trouble than I may already have in my life. Sometimes that is not enough to push me either, so then you bring in the friends who reinforce the point.
This bible passage is something I need to keep meditating on to put me back in check with what my life should really be about. How about you?
