Little Weak Things Vs. Big Mighty Things (1 Cor. 1)

Sometimes it looks like the ungodly and the wicked will swallow the whole world. Who’s stopping them? Aren’t they doing anything and everything they please? And crushing or canceling anyone who disagrees with them?

A Bible passage comes to mind:

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

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

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…  1 Corinthians 1: 25-28

Enemies of God, enemies of truth, despisers of the human race, are riding high just now: this is their era, they’re convinced of it–one more push, and they’ve got their global government! They’ve got the money, they’ve got the power, they’ve got the schools and the media–what can possibly go wrong?

I don’t know. God will take them down by something they never expected, never even thought of–something they would laugh at, if they saw it.

We can continue to declare the truth of God’s word: the predators don’t like it, they’re blinded by rage when they hear it–in short, we are a diversion. While they’re busy chasing us, they won’t turn and see what’s chasing them. They’ll never sense it till it leaps upon their shoulders.

And that–rejoice!–will be the end of them.

One comment on “Little Weak Things Vs. Big Mighty Things (1 Cor. 1)”

  1. I can think of many times in Scripture where the Lord Himself, fought for Israel. One example is found in II Chronicles chapter 20. King Jehoshaphat was told by God “Ye shall not need to fight in this battle, set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the LORD with you…and when he (Jehoshaphat) had consulted with the people, he appointed singers unto the LORD, and that should praise the beauty of holiness, as they went out before the army, and to say, Praise the LORD; for his mercy endureth for ever. And when they began to sing and to praise, the LORD set ambushments against the children of Ammon, Moab, and mount Seir, which were come against Judah, and they were smitten.”

    Other times Gods Judges, such as Gideon, won great victories when they obeyed the word of the Lord. And guess what, at times they needed to handle a sword, bow, or spear to defeat the enemy. Our battles are spiritual, but our arms of flesh, must be used to obey the Will of God.

    At times all it takes is just one man, with great faith, and the enemy can be defeated no matter how strong they may seem.
