"Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called;
But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to onfound the things which care mighty; And the base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, hea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are; That no flesh should glory in his presence." 1 Corinthians 1:25-29
The Lord continues to bring me to this scripture this year. It says so much and has been relevent for the things happening in our lives this year. Just ponder the words...God's foolishness is wiser than our wisdom, His weakness is stronger than our strength. AND He chooses the foolish, the weak, the base, the despised, the broken, the rejected...to bring to nothing the things that are. To confound the wise, the strong, the mighty, the great. He seeks out the refuse of the world to shame the wise. He brings low the prideful and lifts up the meek.
"But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace." Psalm 37:11
He keeps reminding me that I am nothing apart from Him. But that in Him I am treasure, more valuable than gold. He's keeping me quiet, low, and meek. Watchful, listening, sober, with pure intent of the heart. I am wanting to love, like He loves. Accepting, understanding, willing, giving, of what little I have to any who are in need. We can always give more and we can never love too much. He gave everything. He gives all.
