We are not meant to walk through this life on our own wisdom. Our wisdom will only get us so far. We were never meant to figure everything out on our own. In fact, 1 Corinthians 1:25 says, “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.” God’s foolishness is still wiser than the wisest plans of men! Think about that for a minute. Man has created some amazing things: spaceships, modern medicine, the internet! Yet even the genius of those things is nothing compared to God. There is one thing man cannot do: create with God’s materials. His dirt. His trees. His land. His water. What does this tell us about God? He is trustworthy because He is Creator God. The author of life. The origin of life. The giver of life.
God’s wisdom sustains us, spurs us on, and repairs us. James 1:5 says, “If you need wisdom, ask our generous God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking.” His wisdom sustains us because He is the generator of wisdom. Since He created the world and all things in it, He knows everything about everything. He created life so he knows what goes before us. He knows the future. We only know what is right in front of us. We can be encouraged that His wisdom will see us through and motivate us. It also repairs what was broken. Only His wisdom can restore relationships. He sees everything, remember? So He can repair and restore.
Unfortunately, we tend to go everywhere else before going to Him. We trust the advice of others more than God when they cannot possibly know all of the story or see the future. What if we went to God first? What if we trusted Him before anyone else? Imagine what He could do in your life! Trust Him with your days, your relationships, your life.
