Reliance Upon the Spirit

1 Corinthians 2:1-5 NASB
Paul’s Reliance upon the Spirit

1 And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. 2 For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. 3 I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, 4 and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5 so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.

2 Corinthians 12:9 NASB
9 And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.
.

Lord Jesus, help me to rely on Your wisdom, strength and power and not my own. Thank You that my strength is made perfect in my weakness through Your grace.

Thank You Lord Jesus that faith does not rest on men’s wisdom, but on God’s power. Allow Your message to be heard through a demonstration of the Spirit’s power. In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
