The man who is not born-again will see the wisdom of God as foolishness, but the scripture says the foolishness of God is wiser than man. That does not mean God is foolish; instead, it means that what God uses that looks foolish to man is actually wiser than the highest wisdom of men.
When a man who is not born-again looks at the way God operates, it looks foolish to him until he gets born-again. Of course, before we got born-again, the ways of God looked foolish to us. You know Nicodemus who came to Jesus and asked, “How can a man be born again when he is old? Shall he enter his mother’s womb again the second time?” That’s a man of the world trying to understand the wisdom of God with his human brain. It takes the spirit of man to know it, and as God gives the plan, He also gives the strategy to use.
We are not supposed to apply our minds to say, “Well, does this strategy look logical?” It may not look logical, but it’s going to work; it’s going to produce great results! When Moses stood before the Red Sea, Pharaoh was coming behind, with the wall of mountains on one side, desert on the other side, and the Red Sea in front of them. If you talk to men in the world who have high Intelligence Quotient (IQ), who are not walking in the wisdom of the Lord, they may ask how long it will take to construct a bridge over the Red Sea. God asked Moses to lift his rod and divide the sea. Lifting the rod looked foolish, but that was how God was going to do it. Many times, when people apply human mind to divine wisdom, they miss it.
PRAYER: Lord, I pray for a sensitive spirit that knows and discerns your strategy in Jesus’ name!
