At Saint Maryís Church they have a weekly husbandsí marriage seminar. At a session last week, the priest asked Luigi, who was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insights into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.
Luigi replied to the assembled husbands, "Well, Iíve a-tried to treat-a her nice, spend the money on her, but best is that I took-a her to Italy for the 20th anniversary!" The priest responded, "Luigi, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary."
Luigi proudly replied, "Iím a-gonna go to get her."
Jesus is just alright by me. Godís wisdom is alright by me. I trust Him. He is my Shepherd.
English is really a strange language and difficult to learn as all the children in school will testify to you this morning.
Nouns, verbs, adjectives. How come other languages donít use do and isnít interesting as well the compound word forms we use. Like science defined means knowledge or potent when defined is power, coupled with omni, which means all, we have omnipotence or omniscience. Omniscience: all knowledge, Omnipotent: all power.
We are very clever to be able to put two different words together to give a better understanding of things. Like Gi (from gigantic) and normous (from enormous) and make the word ginormus, bigger than the both of them together (yes, a real word).
However, there is one word we have yet to be able to do this with and that is, wisdom. In over 300,000 words, there is no omniwisdom. But God is all wise. He is wisdom and He is infinite which makes Him infinitely wise.
By his power he made the earth, by his wisdom set the world firm, but his discernment spread out the heavens. But in him there is wisdom, and power too, and good counsel no less than discretion. which he has given to us so fully and freely. God, with full wisdom and
understanding, Through Christians like yourselves gathered in churches, this extraordinary plan of God is becoming known and talked about even among the angels!
Jeremiah 10:12; Job 12:13; Ephesians 1:8, 3:10 (NJB, NCV & MSG Bibles)
But a heart that worships God doesnít need to be told that. We tend to say, donít pray for patience for the trials will come to test it in us. There is also something else we should not do, ask God to prove His wisdom or demand proof of it.
If you ask me to prove something I wouldnít get my feelings hurt, but to ask God would be a slap in His face. He is Majestic. The Most High and lifted up Majesty of all creation and to question Him would be the extreme supreme degradation and insult. He has to be all wise and full of infinite wisdom to be on the throne or you couldnít be sure of anything. Everything you know could get all topsy-turvy, heaven
