30 Days of Prayer Day 13: Wisdom for all of life: 1 Corinthians 1:24-31

Day 13

But to those called by God to salvation, both Jews and Gentiles, Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 This foolish plan of God is wiser than the wisest of human plans, and God’s weakness is stronger than the greatest of human strength.
26 Remember, dear brothers and sisters, that few of you were wise in the world’s eyes or powerful or wealthy when God called you. 27 Instead, God chose things the world considers foolish in order to shame those who think they are wise. And he chose things that are powerless to shame those who are powerful. 28 God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important. 29 As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God.
30 God has united you with Christ Jesus. For our benefit God made him to be wisdom itself. Christ made us right with God; he made us pure and holy, and he freed us from sin. 31 Therefore, as the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”

1 Corinthians 1:24-31


Don’t you hate when someone or something makes you feel foolish? We all have experienced those moments when we run out of talent, understanding, or the ability to navigate circumstances we face. We so despise these moments that we will work extra hard to make sure that we can control our circumstances. We insulate and protect against fear and failure. But it’s all a smoke screen. At any moment our lives can be disrupted and even crushed, because we were not in as control as we thought we were.
God has not left us alone in these spaces. He allows us to come to the end of ourselves in order to compel us to trust in Him. Our wisdom is silliness to Him.
Confess the areas where you fight Him for control. Admit your fears and ask Him to show you his strength in that weakness. Preach the truth of His rule and reign to your heart and celebrate the grace and wisdom He gives us in Christ.
