Claiming God's Word, Daily Promise

Daily Promise 7- 14 – 2018

1 Corinthian 1:27

    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 confound the things which are mighty;

Ref:

Ps. 8:2.>   Through the praise of children and infants you have established a stronghold against your enemies, to silence the foe and the avenger.

Matt. 11:25.>   At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.

Reflection
It is simply breathtaking to contemplate the remarkable grace of God! Amazingly, He chose men of all trades, men of low stature, men from all walks of life—He chose you! (Me) He desired those dead in their sins to be resurrected and re-created to declare His infinite glory! What a privilege! What an incredible honor to preach the good news to a dark world! May we rejoice greatly and give praise to His glorious name!

Focus Points:   Is Christianity against rational thinking? Christians clearly do believe in using their minds to weight the evidence and make wise choices. Paul is declaring that no amount of human knowledge can replace or bypass Christ’s work on the cross. If it could, Christ would be accessible only to the intellectually gifted and well educated, and not to ordinary people or to children.
