Chasing God

(1 Corinthians 25:31)

25 Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.
26 For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called:
27 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;
28 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:
29 That no flesh should glory in his presence.
30 But of him are ye in Christ Jesus, who of God is made unto us wisdom, and righteousness, and sanctification, and redemption:
31 That, according as it is written, He that glorieth, let him glory in the Lord.

I read this for school the other day and it really spoke to me. It's comforting to know that my God is stronger than my fears and enemies. And it's humbling to know that God chooses the weak not the mighty. 
I've been learning about men in history who knew so much. Or better yet, thought they knew so much but lacked knowing God. And how all their knowledge didn't save them in the end. That all that they knew was nothing compared to God's wisdom. I think we get so caught up with trying to look smart or to gain knowledge so we are smart that we forget that we should be chasing God's wisdom. 
I definitely do not chase after God as much as I should. So many times I think that it doesn't matter what I do, God still loves me and always will. True as that may be, it's no excuse not to love Him back. 

So I will have to learn to chase God. Because He deserves it.

  2. Amen, Victoria! I just read that passage in my bible recently, too. I need to be reminded of this so often! The things that are valued in our world today usually aren't what God values. Reminds me of how I need to be in His Word so that I can know the difference between His wisdom and the world's! I love the thought that God also chases us--even when we foolishly keep turning the wrong direction. ;-)
