You sure do!!!

 

Jeremiah 10:14 Every man is brutish in his knowledge: every founder is confounded by the graven image: for his molten image is falsehood, and there is no breath in them.

 
Brutish means…Insensible; stupid, Ignorant; uncivilized; untaught, savageness.

Men and women think they are smart. Toddlers go to pre-school, children go to elementary school, teens go to junior high and high school and adults go to college and beyond. Now they think they know a little something. They think they are now wise and clever. But compared to Gods knowledge man is …um…well…stupid. I didn’t say that…the bible expresses that. Stupid is a very rough word. When my kids were little I didn’t allow them to use that word. It’s hard to hear that the bible uses the word stupid in reference to mankind, but if that’s how God sees us then who am I to dispute God’s perception of our knowledge compared to His overall knowledge.

 
1 Corinthians 2:16 for, “Who has known the mind of the Lord so as to instruct him?” But we have the mind of Christ.

 
So if the bible says that we are senseless even though we are educated…then if we make Jesus our Lord and Savior and have the mind of Christ then we can have supernatural wisdom pertaining to our lives and others. We will have spiritual knowledge through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. We will not fall for idols, witchcraft, and anything that is not pleasing to God. We wouldn’t be lead to follow things that are not His will for our lives.

 
Isaiah 5:21 Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight.
We know the unsaved don’t have the mind of Christ…and unfortunately even some of the Church doesn’t either.

 
Psalms 94:11The LORD knows the thoughts of man, that they are futile.

 
When you have a good relationship with the Lord and have knowledge from the bible, you will have a better chance of spiritual success. This is a great thought from Psalms 119:133 Order my steps in thy word: and let not any iniquity (sin) have dominion over me.

 
Why am I talking about this at all? We humans think we know a great deal. We have figured many things out to advance our quality of life. We’ve figured out how to fly. We’ve built incredible things such as skyscrapers, bridges, computers, cars, phones, rocket ships and so much more. We also have developed amazing medical feats such as making a baby in a medical dish and cloning animals. Man is very smart. But in light of who God is man is stupid. God’s knowledge is so out of the realm of mans knowledge that it shouldn’t be spoken of in the same breath.

 
Knowing how smart God is should give us respect for who He is and we should be in great awe in His superiority and greatness. It makes what Jesus did on the cross so much more powerful because of God’s greatness reaching down to us to pull us up to Him and all that was motivated by pure love!. It makes God’s love for us sooooo much profoundly deeper. It should make our dependency on Him much more needed because of His incredible and perfect wisdom.

 
I bow down on my face before my Holy God in absolute awe!!! How dare I think I’m all that and a bag of chips before my God…the Holy God of all universes!!! If it wasn’t for the Holy Spirit inside of me guiding me and Jesus sacrificial act I would be nothing!!!

 
If Jesus has the fullness of God in Him and I’m abiding in Jesus then I can make it. But not on my own or with my own knowledge because I am stupid on my own! I’m blessed with Jesus though. I need Jesus, I need the Holy Spirit. I don’t want to run my life on my own. I have tried and fail miserably!!! Example, my husband and I tried to undo something that was good for us in the long run. We fought to do it and was so disappointed when it didn’t happen. Well years later it turned out that denial was the greatest blessing in our lives! When we figured this out we said to each other…”we were so stupid. We didn’t even know what was good for us!” But God knew!!!

 
We must humble ourselves before our incredible God and His all knowing all powerful knowledge and let Him guide His best for our lives. We should blindly trust God!!!!

 
We need to meditate on God’s superior wisdom and knowledge. It’s so far above ours that it makes dealing with our difficulties in life so much better knowing that He knows what’s best for us. You will pray harder because you know God has a perfect answer for your prayer request. We are indeed blessed. The bottom line here is… Don’t be….stupid!…“Put your trust in God!”.

No real power!!!  Just a man.  But not God who has all power!!!

Man made computers and they are very smart and can answer many questions and give lots of answers. But they cannot change a person life. They have no real power. Like in the wizard of Qz…the wizard had real no power. Jesus has ALL power! Get with Jesus! Repent! Humble yourself! You will be blessed!
