It’s amazing to me that God is humble enough to allow those He created in His image to attain enough knowledge and wisdom of this world to decide that He is not real.

Some of us can allow the aspects of being created in His image to become a stumbling block..

The INTELLIGENCE of humans, our ability to REASON and think LOGICALLY can be huge stumbling blocks when they aren’t mixed with faith in the Only Living God through our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus.

People decide for themselves that the bible doesn’t make sense. That the things extreme and incredible events in the bible don’t didn’t really happen, because they don’t seem realistic. They decide that the word was not given by inspiration from God.

They decide that what’s in the bible can’t be historically or scientifically proven.

But, even much of science is still theory. Who can travel to the sun to absolutely prove that the earth is 93 million miles away? Other than using mathematics, one of God’s absolutes and tools, who can prove that the speed of light is 186 thousand miles per second?

If it’s hard to believe now that people lived to be over 900 years old in bible days, it would have been just as difficult for them to believe that one could have instant light, warm/cool air in a room, or travel thousands of miles in one day.

It could even be possible that someone be so ‘smart’ that they want to believe in God, but their intelligence almost won’t allow them to.

Don’t allow any knowledge of this world, all of which was attained by another imperfect person just like you, prevent you from having faith in God.

Don’t allow your intelligence to allow you to die and go to a Hell that you don’t believe exists. Don’t allow your ability to think critically eternally separate you from a God that you think doesn’t exists.

Don’t allow your understanding of biology to make you reject the virgin birth of Yeshua, Christ Jesus.

After all, science is an attempt to explain the spiritual in physical terms.

Don’t be too smart for your own good, and never cease to pray for those who are.

Remember this…

1 Corinthians 1:18-25 (NKJV)

 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, And bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent.”[a20 Where is the wise? Where is the scribe? Where is the disputer of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For since, in the wisdom of God, the world through wisdom did not know God, it pleased God through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe. 22 For Jews request a sign, and Greeks seek after wisdom; 23 but we preach Christ crucified, to the Jews a stumbling block and to the Greeks[b] foolishness, 24 but to those who 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.



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
