The Random Things of God

“God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence” (1 Corinthians 1:27-29).

The foolish things of the world are those things which the world considers meaningless, random, and insignificant. The world sees no possible way in which these things could make any difference, positive or negative.

We know God can bring down the world's strongholds with insignificant means. When man said “Not even God himself could sink” the Titanic, a non-puncturing dent by an iceberg sent it to the bottom of the ocean. When the markets seem unstoppable, rumors and fear can send them crashing.

Always beware of those who say, “Peace and safety” because “then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape” (1 Thessalonians 5:3).
