I Corinthians 1:20 – “Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?”
Isaiah describes Christ as the Spirit of knowledge and wisdom. In other words, without the coming of Christ we would be left to our own devices and human reason, which Corinthians says is foolish at its best. Because of Jesus, we no longer have to rely on our own human reason and philosophy. Reflecting on this, consider these questions today:
How often do I rely on my own wisdom rather than talking to Jesus?
What keeps me from spending more time with Him? How can I surrender that to Jesus?
What can I do each day to spend time seeking His wisdom and knowledge?
My prayer for you today is that you go to Christ in those times of needing knowledge and wisdom. He promises to give it to you freely!
