God’s Wisdom is Better Than Man’s

God's Wisdom
 
God’s Wisdom Is Better Than Man’s

 

God and His infinite wisdom narrows our way so that it comes down to one thing: trusting Him!!! That is why in Prov. 3:5-7 it so beautifully says: “Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all of your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.”

The scariest but most freeing realization in a person’s life is when they truly come to the knowledge that they are not in control of their life’s moments. When we can lay it all down and trust that God’s will for our lives is ruled by His loving sovereignty, then we experience a defining movement of freedom in our lives that before had been alien to us.

O how deep are God’s riches, and wisdom, and knowledge! How unfathomable are his decisions and unexplainable are his ways! Romans 11:33

The mind of man plans his way, But the LORD directs his steps. Proverbs 16:9

In this devotional today we are coming to the conclusion that we are not in control, and that “Our times are in God’s hands”, in Psalm 31:15. Think about how the Bible teaches the profound truth that God doesn’t want to merely come to our aid when things get out of control, but that He wants to be God in everything; and that we are incapable of ever truly being in control. This is why II Corinthians 3:5 teaches that “We are not sufficient in ourselves”; and, “Apart from God, we (truly) can do nothing” (John15:5).

As we get older and experience the many things that this life on earth has to throw at us, we learn to cry out to God and give Him our entire heart and life. We say from the depths of our being “I trust You!” We are in the last days! Let’s be a people that rely upon God and not ourselves; and, let us be a people who are looking ahead to what is to come and boldly proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a lost and perishing world.

May God richly bless you, may God keep you as we trust Him moment by moment. Amen.

In Jesus Name,
