Do you sometimes find yourself in situations that you wonder how you got into them, yet again? You just wanted to have fun. The next thing you know, you woke up somewhere that you did not plan on. After the party is over, you are left with a spirit of brokeness. It overwhelms you with feelings of guilt, inadequacy, insecurity and unworthiness? You think, "How could I be so foolish?"
These are God’s jesters. They are the people who bring us our happiest memories in our lives; the life of the party that always bring jokes and fun. They make you laugh so hard that your stomach hurts with their wit, charm and sense of humor. They love to socialize and party. They are spontaneous, free-spirited and love to live life on the edge. Their downfall is that they tend to juggle with sin that sometimes lead them to make foolish decisions that bring serious repercussions. The same virtue that makes them a ball of joy is the same virtue that makes them susceptible and vulnerable to sin. Life would be boring without the jesters, wouldn’t it?
These are the fools that God so loves and are often called for a divine purpose. They have a spark and charm within that call attention to the masses because of their vibrant spirit. God calls the foolish to turn to Him to show the power of His spirit. So if you see yourself as a jester, don’t be mistaken, you have a divine calling. God calls the foolish because He wishes to transform them into the wise.
God specializes in super-natural transformation. What once was, will longer be with the power of God!
Read and meditate on the scripture below:
“Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength.
Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 1:20-31
Have a blessed week!
