Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
1 Corinthians 1:25 KJV
The wisdom of the ages gapes and drools
Compared to just a single word from God,
And all the things they teach in all the schools
Is nothing more than drivel dim and flawed.
If you should seek to know the mind of Christ,
Don’t listen to the babble of a sage.
The men who wrote the scriptures were sufficed
To listen to the Lord in every age.
Both men and empires boast about their might;
They strut across the stage of time to die,
And even when their strength is at its height
A bug can bring them down just passing by.
The man of God is neither fool nor weak
When he stands fast and turns the other cheek.

But when we are weak then we are strong …2 Corinthians 12:10 (NLT) That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
Isaiah 40:31 (NLT) But those who trust in the lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.
1 Corinthians 2:16 (NLT) For, “Who can know the lord’s thoughts? Who knows enough to teach him?” But we understand these things, for we have the mind of Christ.
2 Timothy 3:16 (NLT) All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.
I love that we can prayerfully read HIS WORD and HE allows us to be free and wise and strong.
