Wisdom of Man

And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5

Man has tried to rationalize God, to put him in a box so we can perceive it with our human minds. But all the wisdom of man can never explain or fully comprehend the power of our Living God.  For example, creation, the best theory man can come up with is that the universe created itself while we know that God spoke everything into existence through his power and glory.

We need to come to a place where we realize God is the potter and we are the clay, there are things that are beyond our comprehension. But our pride and egos won’t allow this obedience to happen, so man continues to search for answers excluding God

Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory: 1 Corinthians 2:6-7

God can be a mystery sometimes, for example Jesus Christ, who became the Son of Man to die for our sins, yet was resurrected on the 3rd day to rule forever. Why would God lower himself below the angels? How can the wisdom of man explain this? Our human minds still can’t comprehend this love and power God has displayed unto the world. Do you believe in the power of God or the wisdom of man?

Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 1 Corinthians 2:8

And the world rejected God in the flesh and crucified him on a cross. If the wisdom of man understood the power of God, they would have worshipped Jesus instead of killing him. Or could it be the wisdom of man understood who Jesus is and yet rejected anyway due to our pride and unwillingness to change?

But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him. 1 Corinthians 2:9

The fact is God has told us we have not seen anything yet, the power and glory of God is beyond our comprehension. There will be a day when God wipes away death and sorrow, prepares a heavenly place for us, and we live in peace with our King of Kings Jesus Christ. Question is are you going to trust your eternity on the Wisdom of Man or the Power of God?
