“But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, the hidden wisdom which God ordained before the ages for our glory, which none of the rulers of this age knew; for had they known, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” 1 Corinthians 2:7-8, NKJV.
The devil thought he had defeated Jesus through the cross. When little did he know, by the hidden wisdom of God, the cross was the way He made for our salvation. The devil thought Jesus was ruined, but the cross was used to cause him to reign. Satan didn’t see it coming and had no idea he set up his own defeat instead.
Let this be a reminder of how awesome God is. He will show you no matter what it looks like, He is always in control. He has a hidden wisdom that He operates in and is always steps ahead of your adversary. If you remain in faith, He will show you Who He is and what He has ordained for you.
Just when it seems like you will see defeat and failure, when it seems like the devil will ruin you, God will use it to make you better, take your higher and you will reign. When what you’ve gone through appears wouldn’t have any benefit at all in your life, like the ultimate chess move, God is going bring you great victory from it.
“Come up higher, says the Lord. Come up higher and then you will see. I am working it together for your eternal victory.”
Prayer: Father, I give You all the praise and glory right now! I’m an excited and encouraged man today. You know exactly what You are doing. You are going to make something out of all that I have been through. Let it break forth. I will remain in faith about my life. I have faith in Your hidden wisdom and I will walk out my purpose. Continue to shape me in the image of Your Son. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
