Running for political office has proved to be trying beyond measure to me. The wisdom of the world tells me I must advertise, make phone calls, promote my name, etc.
Well, so much for all that. The only thing that matters is that the LORD JESUS is exalted. In the end, I am powerless in my flesh. I must accept this, and let the LORD establish me, if indeed I would be successful. The wisdom of God is in the cross. Utter foolishness to the world. Isaiah 53:1 essentially says, "Who's going to believe this one, Lord?" Indeed, the wisdom of God revealed in a Suffering Servant? The world's rulers did not get it, but in the end, they cannot conquer the one who would lay down His Life. This wisdom has been hidden from the proud, the boastful, those who trust in the flesh. But to those of us who are being saved, it is the power of God.
