Apostle Grace Lubega
1 Corinthians 2:6-7; Howbeit we speak wisdom among them that are perfect: yet not the wisdom of this world, nor of the princes of this world, that come to nought: But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory
It is an infallible truth by God that the wisdom of this world comes to nothing eventually. It means that it has a limit to what it can do.
Take for example education; it is an example of the wisdom of this world but it has a limit to it.
What is its limit?
One of its limitations is the fact that it prepares a man to live in this physical world that we see.
However, it does not prepare you to live in the world within you, that which God has placed in your heart.
That is why, at the end of it, one’s qualifications are reduced to a “curriculum vitae”, whose latin etymology is “course of my life.”
When a person is before an interview panel with this CV, they are in essence saying, “this is the course of my life” thus far.
But what about your eternal course? What are the defining milestones that let you know that you are on course?
Only the wisdom of God can prepare you for the world within you; the eternal world.
Education is a very good thing. It is important to study hard and excel in one’s academic exams.
But, if you can invest countless hours reading for an exam, you ought to invest more in the wisdom that has no end.
You are an eternal being, which is why you ought to invest in eternity. Praise the Lord!

Only the wisdom of God can prepare you for the world within you; the eternal world. You are an eternal being, which is why you ought to invest in eternity.
PRAYER: Loving father, I thank you for this Word. I stand in the great assurance that you have placed eternity in my heart. There are worlds within me and every day, I choose to live from the inside out. I study the Word diligently because I know and understand that I am an eternal being. Your Word dwells richly in me. In this wisdom, I run my course and race perfectly, to the glory of your name. Amen.
