Verse of the Day

Colossians 2:8

Don’t let anyone capture you with empty philosophies and high-sounding nonsense that come from human thinking and from the spiritual powers of this world, rather than from Christ.

Colossians 2:8

Higher Than Human Thinking

As humans, we can really get ourselves into trouble when we give in to our own ways and think we know what is better than God‘s ways. Yet, we see it every day in society. Politicians think they have the answers that people need. Televangelists claim you can have all the answers and everything you want if you just donate to their program today. Scientists and educators can only see the logical side and explanation of things that go on unseen. It can just be as simple as someone thinking their own will is better than the will of the Father.

What is dangerous is that many of these people will try to lead others astray. Some of them may have a big following. They may claim to know Christ, yet never open their Bible. They may claim to be a Christian, yet deny Him by the way they live. God‘s ways are higher than any human intellect. 1 Corinthians 1:25 says that “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.” Go is wiser than anything ER can ever think- He did create us after all. So who would you rather trust?

A Prayer to Remember

Dear Lord,
Your ways are higher than man’s ways. Your foolishness is smarter than man’s wisdom. May I trust in you only and see to know you more. Amen.
