Scripture: 1Corinthians (NIV) 3:19 For the wisdomof this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: “He catchesthe wise in their craftiness”
Observation: Onsome tests I have taken, I have scored somewhat high in the areas of math. I enjoy working with numbers (addition,subtraction, multiplication, division) but easily recognize my limitations. I understand basic math and enjoyed workingwith the beginning levels of algebra. But that is as far as my understanding goes. There are some math words about which I haveno clue: logarithms; calculus; trigonometry;etc. They far exceed my mathabilities.
God's wisdom far exceeds man's wisdom. He perfectly understands not only physical laws and their limitations,He perfectly understands the laws of the spiritual world. He understands how spiritual laws can affectthe natural world. Many miracles arejust a spiritual law trumping a natural law.
God looks at the problems I bring Him in prayer with a full understanding ofwhat is available in both the physical and spiritual world to solve thatproblem.
Application: As I grow in my understanding of God andthe spiritual world, I need to see my problems in the light of Who God is, howmuch He loves me, and what God has available.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, help me go through this day knowingthat you are with me. I want to walk inconfidence that you are more than willing and able to help me face this world. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
