Do you know the cunning of His ways? Or just the benefits of His works?
Do you know the thoughts of His heart? Or just the power of His decrees?
There is a side to God’s nature that man often overlooks. Religion and Unbelief have stripped the Divine of shrewdness and skill in executing a plan. We reduce Him to our limited imagination and earthbound strategies. Though we embrace His love and compassion, we forget He is Ultimate Wisdom and Master of the Play.
“Now, summon all the prophets of Baal, all his worshipers and all his priests; let no one be missing, for I have a great sacrifice for Baal; whoever is missing shall not live.” But Jehu did it in cunning so that he might destroy the worshipers of Baal.” (2 Kings 10:19 KJV)
He can never be outdone because time and space are in His hands and can move them at will. Though the snake believes he has hypnotized the masses through his demonic enchantments and spells, the manipulator of souls forgets the heel that is on his head. The smoke and mirrors designed to deceive and corrupt will soon be shattered in an instant. The demonic plot that has thickened and working towards its destructive finale will have a surprise ending. The Author and Finisher of our faith will soon take center stage and reveal the secrets hidden from ages past.
The rulers of this age are about to be dethroned.
The ways of the Spirit are about to be known.
“We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. However, as it is written: ‘What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived’ the things God has prepared for those who love Him—these are the things God has revealed to us by His Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 2:6-7 NIV)
