Devotional: Your faith should not be in human wisdom

Your faith should not be in human wisdom but in the power of God. 1 Corinthians 2:5

Your faith should not be in human wisdom but in the power of God. (1 Corinthians 2:5) 

We can see a good example of a person whose faith was in the power of God and not in human wisdom from the woman with the issue of blood. 

This woman had suffered for 12 years both physically and mentally from her bleeding disease for the Bible says she had Suffered many things from many doctors (Mark 5:26) as they tried to treat here. She had also suffered financially for she had spent all her money looking for a cure and yet her condition continued to worsen.

Human wisdom may have told her that it was useless to continue looking for a cure because of the above mentioned factors but she clearly did not put her faith in it because when she went to Jesus she said to herself, "If only I touch His garments, I shall be made well." (Mark 5:28) 

Jesus also confirmed that her faith was in the right place for He said to her, "Your faith has made you well." (Mark 5:34)

Therefore when you encounter a humanly impossible situation, ensure that your faith is not in human wisdom but rather, it is in the power of God to change your situation. 


Heavenly Father I ask you in the name of Jesus to help me maintain my faith in your power even when human wisdom tells me that the situation I am dealing with is impossible. Amen.
