Sunday Encouragement

If today is your day for rest, like us all we need to be encouraged. Be encouraged today by this wonderful verse from I Corinthians 1 verse 19:

1 Corinthians 1 Verese 19:

“For it is written: I {God} will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and I {God} will set aside the understanding of the experts.”

When we look back at Joshua. The Book of Joshua chapter 6: God told Joshua and his army to march around Jericho for six days and on the seventh day to march around the city seven times.

Can you imagine , what the people were thinking, what are we going to do make them laugh to death? We will wear ourselves out before those walls come down.

Through obedience , Joshua lead them to a tremendous victory, I bet they would have marched anywhere then, on the short term for God.

Gideon in Judges chapter 7: When the three hundred man that were left, Gideon split them into three groups of a hundred. Then he handed out to each man an earthenware jar, a torch of oil wood and a trumpet made of ram’s horn. What were these men thinking, when Gideon told them of God’s plan to take the Midianite camp. Imagine, a touch so they can see us coming, we will be barbequed with our own fire.

Through obedience Gideon, lead them to a great victory.

Naaman in 2 Kings chapter 5: Naaman was a fine soldier who had leprosy, a career ending disease. Elisha the prophet told him to go wash seven times in the River Jordan and he would be cured. Imagine Naaman, his response was ‘why should i wash in their dirty old river, we have much cleaner rivers where I come from.

Eventually through obedience Naaman was healed.

In the New Testament, John 21 verse 6: Jesus told them to cast our there nets again. They had been fishing all night and caught nothing. Imagine what they thought, can’t He see how tired we are from working all that time and catching nothing.

Eventually through obedience they caught a large number of fish.

Understanding how much Our Lord and Our Friend loves us, is not in worldly understanding and knowing we have a purpose and a destiny with the God Who created us, can’t be found in the wisdom of the world either.

Faith in God requires trust, which the wisdom of the world can’t understand, for it is foolishness to the world wisdom.

Faith in God, is liberating, and is built on an eternal future

Be blessed Today And Everyday,
