Isaiah 44:24-25

This is what the Lord, your Redeemer, the Lord who formed you from the womb, says. I am the Lord, the one who does all things, who stretched out the heavens by myself, who hammered out the earth. (Who was with me then?) I frustrate the signs of the deceivers and make fools of the fortune-tellers. I overturn the wisdom of the wise and turn their knowledge into foolishness.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank you for the care you have for us. You formed our first parents from the dust of the earth and redeemed us when we were lost in our sins. The creation of man was unlike the way you created heaven and the earth. You stretched out heaven like we stretched out a sheet on a bed, then hammered out the world like a steal smith pounding out a steel drum. Yet when we look at both, there are such tremendous details in the heavens and earth. And when we were conceived, you formed us in the womb with the same intense care of our first parents. As you look at mankind and those who claim to be so wise, you must laugh at their ignorance. How they think they are going to overcome you with their wisdom. Father, thank you for providing this fantastic world for us to live in and thank you for your plan to save us from all our sins. Through Jesus’ life and death, you have redeemed us; the world may call us foolish that we trust in Jesus, and by faith, will we be saved from hell’s devastation. The world may label us the way they will, and you remind us their knowledge is foolishness. We are your children you formed in the womb and redeemed with Jesus’ blood. Amen

Pastor Roger Emmons

Foolishness is trying to outthink the creator and Redeemer.
