Wisdom of a man and wisdom of God

Welcome, my friends, to our column “Daily word for spiritual strength”! I believe you get refreshed and inspired while reading these daily columns.As we concluded yesterday, God is the only one who knows the true meaning of human life. We are created by God, that´s why only God as Creator knows the true goal and the purpose of our life and He is willing to reveal them to His children.This is exactly why God invites us to call to Him and expect revelation about the goal and meaning of our life.  
«Call to me, and I will answer you, and will show you great things, and difficult, which you don’t know». (Jeremiah 33:3).
 There are many things in your life God calls «difficult, which you don’t know».Only God knows what you need at every moment of your life. Nobody else but Him knows everything about your life, because it´s not revealed to anybody else. God knows everything, since He is our creator which possesses our past, present and future.Hidden, “which you don´t know” – are the secrets and mysteries you are missing to know in order to break thorough and gain victory in your life. Those are things currently hidden but necessary for you to have success in all spheres of your life. God knows all those things and He is ready to reveal them to you if you call to Him and seek Him with all your heart. Look, what the word of God says about it: 
«But we speak God’s wisdom in a mystery, the wisdom that has been hidden, which God foreordained before the worlds for our glory, which none of the rulers of this world has known. For had they known it, they wouldn’t have crucified the Lord of glory. But as it is written, “Things which an eye didn’t see, and an ear didn’t hear, Which didn’t enter into the heart of man, These God has prepared for those who love him.” But to us, God revealed them through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches all things, yes, the deep things of God. For who among men knows the things of a man, except the spirit of the man, which is in him?Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God’s Spirit. But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God. Which things also we speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual things. Now the natural man doesn’t receive the things of God’s Spirit, for they are foolishness to him, and he can’t know them, because they are spiritually discerned.» (1 Corinthians 2:7-14).
 As we see in the verses above, wisdom can be different. There are a wisdom of this world and God´s wisdom. God´s wisdom differs from the wisdom of this world the way that it´s hidden until the God Himself reveals it to the people. As for the wisdom of this world, that´s a human wisdom gained using five methods of perception, or sense: hearing, sight, touch, smell, and taste, which are the natural channels used to gain a knowledge.Differently from God´s wisdom that exists for our glory, the wisdom of a man once passes away. The Bible says, that «the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men», even more His wisdom is. God´s wisdom is much higher than the wisdom of a man.It´s exciting that God is ready to share His wisdom with us if we are thirsty for that. God through the Holy Spirit wants to reveal the mysteries of our life if we seek Him and His presence.As we can see from the Scripture no one knows things of God, except God´s Spirit whom God has given to those who obey Him, who ask Him, who accepts Him and love Him. (Acts 5:32; Luke 11:13). God gives the Holy Spirit to anyone who asks, so that such person can reveal everything God has granted him, receive his heritage in God and enjoy it. 
«… Even so, no one knows the things of God, except God’s Spirit. But we received, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit which is from God, that we might know the things that were freely given to us by God.» (1 Corinthians 2:11-12).
 Call to Him and He will answer to you!Be abundantly blessed in the Lord!Rufus Adjiboje
