Open Heaven 21 February 2021 Memorize: To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ forever. Amen. Romans 16:27

Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 1:19-31

19. For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.

20. Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?

21. For after that in the wisdom of God the world by wisdom knew not God, it pleased God by the foolishness of preaching to save them that believe.

22. For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom;

23. But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;

24. But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.

25. Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

26. For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called;

27. But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty;

28. And base things of the world, and things which are despised, hath God chosen, yea, and things which are not, to bring to nought things that are;

29. That no flesh should glory in his presence.

30. But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption;

31. That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

Bible Reading In One Year: Exodus 1:1-22

MESSAGE:- Open Heaven 21 February 2021 Sunday Daily Devotional

Our focus in today’s study is on one of the many attributes of God – wisdom. God’s wisdom is beyond human understanding. His wisdom has no end and no one can ever compete with him. Indeed, there is no basis for comparison. The depth of God’s wisdom is unsearchable. God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise.

(1 Corinthians 1:25) tells us that even the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of man, and His weakness is stronger than man’s strength.

One of the numerous ways God showed His infinite wisdom is the way He paid the price for our sins. While the devil was rejoicing that Jesus would be disgraced publicly with a shameful death, God was rejoicing because that was exactly what He needed to save the world (1 Corinthians 2:8).

It was after the death of Jesus and rise of the Apostles, sharing the gospel around the world that Satan realised that he had played by the script of the Omniscient God. While anyone would have seen God’s silence when Jesus was being crucified as foolish, it was actually wisdom.

This is why I know that though the devil may be laughing at you now, he does not know that God only allowed him win the battle so that he would lose the war over your life. You will laugh last in the mighty name of Jesus.

The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding. – Proverbs 9:10

Do you want God to give you wisdom? The first step is to fear Him (Proverbs 9:10). When you fear God, you will refrain from all unrighteousness.

Your colleagues may call you a fool for not falsifying figures for your gain but soon, when they begin to see you enjoying things that they cannot afford, they will know that you are actually wise. When you fear God and stay away from evil, you begin to walk in wisdom.

Finally, ensure that you specifically ask God for wisdom and He will give it to you. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. – James 1:5.

At the end of time, when those who are foolish are thrown into the lake of fire and we who have received the wisdom of God are reigning with Him in eternity, then it will be clear we made the right choice.

Prayer Point – Open Heaven 21 February 2021

Father, put Your fear in my heart so that I may be wise.

Holy! Holy! Holy! Lord God Almighty

1. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed, Trinity!

2. Holy, holy, holy! All the saints adore Thee,
Casting down their golden crowns around the glassy sea;
Cherubim and Seraphim falling down before Thee,
Who wert and art, and evermore shalt be.

3. Holy, holy, holy! Though the darkness hide Thee,
Though the eye of sinful man thy glory may not see,
Only Thou art holy; there is none beside Thee,
Perfect in power, in love, and purity.

4. Holy, holy, holy! Lord God Almighty!
All Thy works shall praise thy name, in earth and sky, and sea.
Holy, holy, holy! Merciful and mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed, Trinity!
