Wisdom & Knowledge

Have you ever come across someone who is condescending towards you because you believe in God? You are the radical extremist who, in their opinion, has no knowledge whatsoever and is just stupid. Whether you have encountered someone like that or not, the world basically tells us that wisdom and knowledge comes only from being educated at the best school and making money. The world's definition of knowledge says that we evolved from nothing and a baby with a heartbeat inside a mother's womb is merely tissue. That's what we call knowledge? Did you know that God actually warns us about this kind of deception and philosophy?

Colossians 2:8
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

It is very easy to influenced and deceived by the world! Ignoring the truth of God's Word seems so much easier and more fun than truly living as a disciple of Christ. We have to be careful and pay attention to what we allow to influence us. We will always deal with people that try to convince us that God's Word is not true. 2,000 years ago Paul was warning people about empty knowledge and this is still a problem today.

Colossians 2:7 tells us to be rooted and established in our faith so that we don't fall prey to lies and deceit. True knowledge comes only from Christ and anything that doesn't not align with Him is not true. As young women of God, right now we have this incredible opportunity to dig deep into God's Word and solidify our faith. Throughout our lives we will always be bombarded by the world and told that we have no understanding or knowledge. Don't be deceived! Be on guard. God Almighty is Creator of all things, He is Truth, and He is wiser than the wisest man to walk this earth. Every person, every flower, every raindrop comes from Him. Don't allow yourself to be manipulated by the world. Real wisdom and knowledge comes from God and one day every person will truly understand that.

In His Love,
