Proof of Wisdom

How do you prove something? Is it by witnesses? Is proof provided through research? Do you provide evidence to prove your claim? Where do you look to find the proof you need? Have you ever thought proof is the result?

We have all seen movies or been chosen for jury duty. We know proof is required to convict a criminal. For the most part, hard evidence is required. We also know proof is often required in other lines of work. Proof or historical evidence may be required to get your boss to accept a plan you are proposing.

Many people look for proof that God is who He says He is. They look for hard evidence. They look through human eyes to judge God, who works in spiritual matters. It is like looking for water in a soda. It’s not that there is no water. But the water is mixed with syrup. That is how God integrates Himself in our lives, if we will allow Him to come in.

Proof that God exists is so evident, or in your face as some might say, that we don’t see Him. The very breath we breathe comes from Him. Our every muscle move is a blessing from Him. Each meal we eat is because He thought to create plants and animals for us to eat. Each skill we have been gifted with innately or able to learn is due to Him blessing us.

How do we prove God’s wisdom? Jesus plainly tells us it is proven by her children. What does that mean? Children are offspring. Children are the results of intimate relations between two people. Jesus is telling us, and everyone who will listen, that wisdom is proved by the results it produces.

As we go about growing in God’s wisdom and exercising it, we will see results that are blessed by God. His wisdom will produce the result He desires through us. God’s wisdom will prove all the naysayers wrong. His plan is being executed and will be completed, just as He designed.

I pray we all look at the results of God’s wisdom. I pray we see the proof we desire of God’s wisdom. I pray each one of us choose to follow God’s wisdom. See proof of God’s wisdom. See the results of God’s wisdom. Recognize proof. Trust God’s wisdom.

Luke 7:33-35 “For John the Baptist came neither eating bread nor drinking wine, and you say, ‘He has a demon.’ The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and you say, ‘Here is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.’ But wisdom is proved right by all her children.”
