Where Does Your Faith Stand?
Consider the scripture found in 1 Co. 2:4&5, " And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom but in the demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.
There's a whole lot of knowledge "flying" around these days. There are scientific reports, governmental reports, reports from organizations, and communities, all of which are being presented powerfully and persuasive as wisdom. However, when the reports are given, who's report will you believe?
There is wisdom that comes from a lot of the reports that we may encounter, but what kind of wisdom is it? Consider James 3:17, which says, "But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy."
Now I ask, "What is your faith standing in?" Understand that your faith is standing in something. When your faith stands in the power of God you get what the power of God produces. Likewise, if you were standing in water you'd get what water produces. If your faith stands in the government you only get what the government can produce. If your faith stands in activism, you only get what activism can produce. The conclusion should be that your faith is left standing in the Power of God. The power of God heals you, delivers you, conforms you, transforms you, prospers you, and the list can go on and on. When your faith stands in the power of God you get all that the Power of God produces.
