Wisdom from God

February 12, 2018


Wisdom from God

There is such an infinite wisdom  in the making  of all creation.    All of the workings  and balance  of nature  are absolutely awesome  in the intelligence it took  to create everything.     Just by looking around us,  we should be able  to figure out  that the LORD God Almighty  is wise beyond  our wildest imagination.     No human has  that kind  of intelligence.

God’s wisdom is seen  in more  than all  of creation.    There is infinite wisdom  in God’s plan  of salvation,  also.    As 1 Corinthians 1:30 says,

By His doing  you are  in Christ Jesus,  who became  to us  wisdom from God,  and righteousness,  and sanctification,  and redemption…

Just by believing  in God’s salvation  through Jesus Christ,  we are made righteous  in God’s eyes  —  God sanctifies our daily living  —  and we are redeemed,  bought and paid for  by the blood  of Christ.

All of this takes place  because of God’s wisdom.    God knows  that we cannot do any  of this  on our own.     We are too weak  and helpless.

But,  worldly people refuse  to believe  our eternal salvation  can come just  by faith  in Christ.     As they greatly admire  their own intellect, they feel  it is absolutely necessary  to add the ideas  of great philosophers.     After all,  philosophers from all over the world  have thought through our human condition  and figured out ways  to make this  a better world.

And then,  since the gospel is presented  so simply  in the Bible,  the world feels  they really should intellectualize it  with deeply explained doctrines  of their own,  in high sounding words.     So  they try to show off  their intellect  by inventing doctrines  and words  to describe the doctrines  that they have figured out  all by themselves.

The world invents  physical exercises  and various methods  of meditation  to get one “in tune”  with the universe.    They write up  long lists  of rules  for living.     They write thick books explaining  how their “truth”  is a blend  of all the religions  and philosophies  of this world.

But,  the Bible repeatedly warns us  against all false teachings  and heresies.     Instead of looking  to sinful mankind  for the truths  of God,  we need  to be looking  to the LORD,  who has proven  that His word alone  is eternal truth.     Only in God  can we find  true wisdom  and salvation.

Solomon wrote  some good advice  in Proverbs 3:7,

Do not be wise  in your own eyes;   
Fear the LORD  and turn away  from evil.

According to the psalmist,  we have plenty to learn  in the word  of God,  and need  to be studying it  for our salvation  and wisdom.    Psalm 111:10 says,

The fear  of the LORD  is the beginning  of wisdom;   
A good understanding  have all those  who do His commandments.

We would be wise  to trust  in the LORD,  His wisdom,   and His ways only.     We should not let the world  bamboozle us  with its foolishness  and arrogantly pretentious “knowledge”.

As we study God’s word  and come to respect  and revere the LORD  for His wisdom  and almighty power  to save us  from our sins,  our eyes will be opened  to His awesome love  and patience  with us.     Then we will say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  Your wisdom  and love  are so far beyond  any human ability  to think  or reason.     All glory,  power  and dominion  are Yours.”
