Man’s Foolishness

Jeremiah recorded by THE SPIRIT in chapter 10:

23   O Lord, I know that the path of [life of] a man is not in himself;

It is not within [the limited ability of] man [even one at his best] to choose and direct his steps [in life].  AMPL

We all have notable limitations in our lives as is expressed in the passage above thus who among us should we follow?  Paul wrote by THE SPIRIT in Colossians chapter 1:

18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.

19 For it is written:

​​​“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise,

​​And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”

​20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.

22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom;

23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks foolishness,

24 but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God.

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Are you seeking signs to direct your ways?  Are you seeking man’s wisdom when making decisions?  They are but foolishness when compared to FATHER’S instruction.  HE has provided The Way for us to go so that we live our life to the fullest.

I once listened to a young woman spend forty-five minutes telling a group of us about her trip where she had seen a multitude of signs directing her way.  She spoke in great detail about each sign and its relevance to her.  Clearly, she fell into the category of the “Jews” who requested signs.  I was totally worn out by the end of her trip and I didn’t even go.  We must be led by THE SPIRIT and not rely on physical signs to guide us.

Why focus on the imperfect when FATHER provides the perfect and exact Truth?  “Self” always wants to overrule THE SPIRIT when given the opportunity and this is why we must die to self and live unto THE SPIRIT on a daily basis.

Peter encourages us by THE SPIRIT in 2nd Peter chapter 1:

1 Simon Peter, a bondservant and apostle of Jesus Christ,

​To those who have obtained like precious faith with us by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ:

​2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,

3 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue,

4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.

FATHER’S Agape Love has provided to us all things that pertain to life and godliness.  What else could one ask for?  If we ask, it will be given; as we seek, we will find; as we knock, it will be opened to us.  Everything we need comes through the knowledge of Our Heavenly Father.

Our society is in desperate need of this knowledge but their eyes are blinded because they follow the god of this world.  As we walk in the light and speak forth HIS Word in our mouths, we will pierce the darkness that prevails in the world.  If we will make The Word first priority in our life, we will experience the fruitfulness associated with The Word.  It is up to each of us to be brutally honest concerning our walk.  Each of us will be accountable for our words and actions so let us watch over both.

HE has given us ALL things that pertain to life and Godliness.  HE has given us exceedingly great and precious promises.  Who on earth could claim to give us anything similar?  No one.  The wealthiest man on earth is subject to death and destruction and his wealth will not increase his days on earth.  Let us place our focus each day on being partakers of the Divine nature.
