1 Corinthians 1:26-27 The Passion Translation (TPT)
26 Brothers and sisters, consider who you were when God called you to salvation. Not many of you were wise scholars by human standards, nor were many of you in positions of power. Not many of you were considered the elite when you answered God’s call. 27 But God chose those whom the world considers foolish to shame those who think they are wise, and God chose the puny and powerless to shame[a]the high and mighty.
How foolish to trust in the unseen, to put all our confidence and hopes in someone who is invisible.
I’ve learned to depend on a silent voice speaking to me at the hub of my being. It is a presence that reminds me that I belong to the great ocean of His existence. When I sit in the midst of this silence something in me awakens to the veracity that this is my life force. It is in this still quiet place that I find refuge in God. Jesus often spoke about the Kingdom of God being within, yet we look every place but there. He encourages us to be still and know that I am God. When we let go of the nobility of our own thoughts, when mighty and impressive ideas have been swept away by the ocean of Gods presence we are left with the essence of God. In this stillness we can begin to get to the core of who we really are. For undeniably, we have been called to the foolish things of Christ, it seems so irrational to push past everything that has been so dignified and established in my life, but as I am emptied of the images I’ve created, I am left with the foolish notion that I am a reflection of this massive ocean of Gods presence. I will live in this foolish notion satisfied that I am more than I ever dreamed or thought. I will trust in the invisible presence of God as He floods the eye of my heart with His light. I will keep choosing to go beyond the veil of want and need of right and wrong to the incredible inheritance I have in Christ.
