The foolishness of God

Have you ever been impressed by a person who just knows it all. It seems as if they had all the knowledge of the world between their ears. As Christians, we have access to more knowledge than the knowledge of this world. We can have knowledge from God.

Proverbs 2 begins by a father calling to his son to seek for knowledge and wisdom. He tells the son to seek for understanding and knowledge as if he was seeking for treasure. He says that as you seek for knowledge you will gain the fear of the Lord. We know from Proverbs 9 that, "The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding." Knowledge and wisdom come from God. If that isn’t enough, Proverbs 2 continues in verse 6 with, "For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding." We can learn from these passages that God is the source of all wisdom and knowledge.

In light of these scriptures, I would like to encourage you. Whatever the world around you is saying, trust God. No matter what historians dig up, or evolutionist say, trust God. He alone is the source of all wisdom, knowledge, and understanding. All the intelligence on earth is foolishness before Him. 1 Corinthians 1:25 says, "Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men." God is above all in this world. Let us trust what He says and seek Him for the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding that only He can give.

"O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!" – Romans 11:33
