Genesis 47; Luke 1:1-38; Job 13; 1 Corinthians 1

“For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.”  1 Corinthians 1:25

I enjoy God’s “upside down” world view!   Young, petite David slaying the giant.  The stable birth of a King.  Saul (persecutor) becomes Paul (proclaimer)!

I used to like to figure things out … have a plan in place … know how “I” am going to take care of a particular situation.  Now, I love it when I am faced with a problem that I cannot figure out.  At some point in the process, I always realize God has the solution.  (I am slow like that … I often spend a lot of time thinking, rethinking and agonizing before I come to this realization!)

“Let him who boasts, boast in the Lord!”  1 Corinthians 1:31b

Father, keep me humble.  Help me to always remember, when I am strong, it is YOUR strength; when I make good decisions, it is YOUR wisdom; when I succeed, it is to YOUR credit and glory.  Thank you for showing up in a supernatural way!

    AMEN!!!!

  2. I love it right after God shows me the solution to the problem. Before that I am usually too mired in my immediate fleshly reactions to fully appreciate God’s awesome plans. I am thankful that He doesn’t hold this against me. Thank you Jesus.

    I like that He doesn’t hold my “density” against me, either!
