“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the LORD.
“And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine."
1 CORINTHIANS 1:25 (ABP)
The "foolishness" of God is way wiser than any human wisdom. And his "weakness" is stronger than human "strength."
We're not in the same league as God so it behooves us to trust him and tap into the resources he offers.
We live in a world of chaos and conflict of our own doing. Why do we think that we have any chance of fixing things on our own? Instead of seeking more power or wisdom look to what God offers.
Almighty God, I'm not in your league but that doesn't stop me from trying to generate cheap knockoffs of your power and wisdom. And we're so simple-minded that we don't even realize what we're doing. Help me to see how I'm overstepping my abilities so that I can stand down and trust what you so freely share. I'm going to trust in your wisdom to carry this out. Amen.
Our Father in Heaven,
we hold your name in the highest regard.
Please come and establish your reign here on earth
so that everything that happens here will align
with what is happening in heaven.
and we’ll forgive those who have wronged us.
Shield us from the trials and temptations that come our way.
Lastly, we pray that you would protect us from all forms of evil. Amen!
