1 Corinthians 2:5
". . . .so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power." NIV
". . . .that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God." KJV
There are many philosophers and preachers who give out messages that seem Godly and make our hearts feel good. If we build our faith on what we see and hear from these and others like them, we will be investing our faith in the words and wisdom of men. God tells us our faith is built up by the Word of God. Listen to the Word of God and its' power will increase our faith.
Heavenly Father, we earnestly pray that You will grant us wisdom and discernment to test all things by Your Word so that our faith will be founded in Your Truth. In Jesus' name, Amen.
