June 8, 2020 - In the Power of God

It’s amazing the gems that are hidden in the Word of God. Paul, in Corinthians, wrote that he came to them, not in fancy speech nor with persuasive words. Instead, he came in the power of the Spirit in order “that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:5).

The wisdom of men versus the power of God? Look out your window at the trees, at the humble grass, at the flowers, at the birds, at the sky, the stars, the sun. None of these things, none, arose from the wisdom of men but only from the power of God. The wisdom of men doesn’t understand even what these things, really, are. The wisdom of men doesn’t even understand what life itself is, much less is it able to produce a single living blade of grass; no, not even a single living cell in a blade of grass, whereas the power of God has though the ages created untold numbers, not just of cells, but of blades of grass, of flowers, of human life.

The wisdom of man versus the power of God? Please! We sit here on our tiny planet for such a short length of time attempting to understand the reality that we’re part of, and so often our wisdom gets it wrong while the power of God not only created all this reality but sustains it. Whether creating idols of stone and worshipping them, to arguing that our universe arose out of nothing and by pure chance alone, human wisdom doesn’t necessarily progress as much as it morphs, exchanging one form of foolishness for another.

In contrast, the power of God, where does it begin; where does it end? We can only marvel at the snippets we encounter, however much it alone is what created and sustains us, and we can praise and thank God that, too, we are “kept by the power of God through faith for salvation ready to be revealed in the last time” (1 Peter 1:5).
