THE CHOICE IS YOURS
1 Corinthians 14:26-40
You must learn how to draw upon the supernatural wisdom of God for direction and guidance in the circumstances you face in every area of your life. God is not the author of confusion…Satan is! Instead of confusion, fear, and frustration, God wants you to have His wisdom operating in your life so you know His will and purpose.
God wants you to have His wisdom in the major decisions you must make. When you face circumstances that, in the natural, seem impossible and you don’t know which way to turn, He does not want you to become confused or afraid. He wants you to draw upon His wisdom. THE CHOICE IS YOURS
God is a God of order, design, and peace. Confusion does not come from Him. The Apostle Paul, in writing to the Corinthians concerning order in the church, told them, “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints” (1 Corinthians 14:33). Whenever there is confusion, strife, contention, or turmoil, you can be assured it is not from God.
The word “confusion” translated from the original Greek in this verse means “instability, a state of disorder, disturbance, confusion, turmoil.” There is no doubt — Satan is the source from which confusion originates. It is his objective to attack your mind and bring it to a state of instability, disorder, and turmoil. He will attack you with doubt, fear, and unbelief until your mind is clouded with confusion and indecision. You will become unstable, fluctuating back and forth, not knowing what to do. James said, “A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways” (James 1:8). THE CHOICE IS YOURS
You can have the supernatural wisdom which comes from God, enabling you to walk in faith and victory or you can have the worldly, natural wisdom which results in confusion, frustration, and defeat. The choice is yours. The Apostle James compared these two types of wisdom. He said:
But if you have bitter jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry, selfish ambition) in your hearts, do not pride yourselves on it and thus be in defiance of and false to the Truth. This (superficial) wisdom is not such as comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual (animal), even devilish (demoniacal).
For wherever there is jealousy (envy) and contention (rivalry and selfish ambition), there will also be confusion (unrest, disharmony, rebellion) and all sorts of evil and vile practices. But the wisdom from above is first of all pure (undefiled); then is it peace-loving, courteous (considerate, gentle.) (It is willing to) yield to reason, full of compassion and good fruits; it is wholehearted and straightforward, impartial and unfeigned free from doubts, wavering and insincerity. (James 3:14-17, TAB)
