God’s foolishness

What is true wisdom and strength?

This so-called “foolish” plan of God is far wiser than the wisest plan of the wisest man, and God in his weakness — Christ dying on the cross — is far stronger than any man.
1 Corinthians 1:25 The Living Bible

Lord, I try so hard some days to look wise and strong and like I have it all together, even when I feel like I’m falling apart. But You weren’t afraid to look foolish, or to appear to be weak, when You died for us. Help me to stop feeling I’ve failed to measure up to our human ideas of strength and weakness, and to look to You instead. I don’t need to pretend to be stronger or smarter or more organised than I am. Even in my most messy days, when it all seems to be going wrong, I just need to lean on You. Your wisdom. Your Strength. Your plan. In You, all will be well.

[Tweet “If we lean on God, His wisdom, His strength, and His plan for us, all will be well.”]

[Tweet “Let’s stop pretending we have it all together, and live our truths in God instead”]
