Who Is God? God Is Wise! (9 of 9)
Series: Who Is God?
Psalm 104:24, Proverbs 3:19, 8:22-31
INTRODUCTION On Sunday, June 22, 2008, Kasey Edwards was hanging out with his buddies at 2:00 AM out in Okeechobee, Florida, when he told them he was going to swim across a 25-foot-deep canal. His friends tried to talk him out of it but he'd had a few beers and he wouldn't listen - they think he might have been impaired by alcohol. About halfway through the swim, an 12-foot alligator approached Kasey and chomped down on his arm. He struggled to get free, poked it in the eye, and finally was able to swim away back to shore. But the gator kept his arm. Kasey said he'd never paid too much mind to gators swimming in canals in Okeechobee County. He must not have been too observant because you can practically walk across the canals in Okeechobee on the back of gators. Any time you see a body of water in Florida, and especially in Okeechobee, you should ASSUME there is an 12-foot gator in there. What Kasey did was ''unwise.'' In fact, if you understand the definition of wisdom it was wisdom's opposite.
Chip Ingram: ''The wisdom of God: brings about the best possible ends, by the best possible means, for the most possible people, for the longest possible time.''
What would your life be like if you really believed that definition? If we really believed that if there as an easier way, a gentler way, a kinder way, a better way, for God to accomplish his will in my life he would do it that way? Let's look at the evidence for God's wisdom.
