“And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom; but in demonstration of the Spirit and power. That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God”. 1 Corinthians 2:4-5 (KJV)

In his first epistle to the church in Corinth, Paul declares: “And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellence of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.” (1 Corinthians 2:1. You must understand who is speaking. This is Paul speaking. He was very highly educated and learned in the Jewish religion. He sat under the best of teachers.

However, when he had an encounter with Jesus Christ, he found out that every other thing was nothing in the presence of Jesus. He discovered that every other thing loses value when Jesus Christ takes the center stage. He was determined not to glory in his credentials nor his Jewish pedigree.

He was no more glorying in his achievements and performance. He was determined not to know anything else, save Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Child of God, as a believer, your faith should not stand in the man’s wisdom, but in the power of God, because the wisdom of man is falling apart.

Haven’t you noticed that man’s wisdom and understanding are failing? Man’s calculations, postulations and everything man has built are falling like a pack of cards.

As a matter of fact, that is one of the lessons of the pandemic season. Whatever man has built cannot be depended upon. Choose to depend upon the word of God. That is the only thing that guarantees stability in times of turbulence.
