Hi everyone! Today 365 Days of Inspiring Media is beginning our daily posts, starting with Message Mondays. This first post is about one of my favorite verses in the Bible. I hope this inspires you the way it does me. Enjoy!
For most of my teen years, I was involved in something called “Bible Quizzing”. Basically what we did was studied and memorized Scripture and then answered competitive questions about them. It was an amazing way to learn God’s word that I never truly appreciated until after it was over. Bible Quizzing gave me a chance to study all sorts of books in the New Testament such as Matthew, Luke, John, Corinthians, Philipians, Ephesians, Colossians, Philemon, among others. Throughout all of my learning, there was one verse that really stood out to me. The book of Corinthians was full of gems, but 1 Corinthians 1:25 was particularly awesome.
“For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.”
This is one of those verses that seems so obvious in retrospect, but it blew my mind. The concept is humbling, and it reminds me that no matter what I do, no matter what “I” want to accomplish, God is there with a bigger and better plan. As humans, we tend to think that the universe revolves around us. As technology continues to advance so rapidly, it can become our own Tower of Babel. But just like in that story, nothing we can do can begin to touch God’s power. With just a flex of His muscle, He can do things we can’t even imagine. Nature proclaims His greatness. Every breath we take is a gift that He chose to give us.
God continues to amaze me. I am a minuscule piece of an enormous universe, a broken sinner, but He loves and cares for me nonetheless.
