HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
“ Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.” 1 Corinthians 1:25
Sometimes I say, “I am so young — what can I do?” But He has many a time used the artless speech even of little children to accomplish results denied to human argument and eloquence and wisdom. And many a time He has made the presence of a child a deterrent from evil, a spur to holiness.
Sometimes I say, “But I am of no account; my surroundings are too strong for me.” And yet He is well able to endow me with a celestial strength in my home, my business, my neighbourhood, where everything seems to be against me. His roses bloom among Alpine snows — and His lilies in tropical sands.
Sometimes I say, “It is useless for me to go out to His battles; I am very timorous and fearful.” But He can lift me above my natural disposition and temperament. He takes the shivering spear of grass — and it becomes like the rod of Moses. He takes the well-near-extinct light — and it shines like the golden candlestick.
Sometimes I say, “The work is so great — and what am I?” Indeed it is, and there are many adversaries, and I am destitute of might. But Paul’s history teaches me that, if my food and my drink are found in doing His will, nothing shall be too high for me. The foolishness of God is wiser than men.
