I WANT TO BE FOOLISH

“We give credit to human wisdom when we should give credit to the divine guidance of God being exhibited through childlike people who were “foolish” enough to trust God’s wisdom and His supernatural equipment.” -Oswald Chambers

Good Monday morning y’all! As I sit here and write, I am reminded of how easy it is to give someone the glory instead of God. A good idea should get rewarded, for sure. But who should be the one who actually receives the praises?

In life we forget that the very things we do or the amazing ideas we come up with are not because of us. It isn’t because I simply woke up one morning and said to myself, “I am going to travel the world and preach God’s word!” We do not give ourselves those thoughts. They are put there by God himself because He can see in us what we don’t see in ourselves. Our potential is much grander than we could ever imagine. Why? Because our Creator is impeccable and marvelous. Because He formed us in the very womb. He specifically woven in us special details that only we have.

But, it’s not enough to simply have the idea, right? It’s about being “foolish” enough to trust the idea and move forward. Do we trust God enough to take the first step and allow Him to provide whatever it is we may need for the next? Will our natural, adult like thoughts or concerns get in the way of the childlike faith He has commanded us to have? We have to remember that God and His works are SUPERNATURAL. So when our minds try to comprehend what He may be asking us to do we will more than likely want to disagree and run the opposite way because it simply just doesn’t make sense.

That is the beauty of it all. The fact that a supernatural God would use natural humans, like you and me to do completely extraordinary and complex tasks. Whether we understand them fully or not. He is able which means He will enable us to do what He has asked.

It will never be a matter of if you are ready, but will always come down to if you are WILLING.

“Examine me, O LORD, and prove me. Try my mind and my heart.” Psalm 26:2
