God’s Wisdom or Yours – A.W. Tozer

For Monday June 6, 2022:

GOD’S WISDOM OR YOURS

Isaiah 53:6 (NKJV)
All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned, every one, to his own way.

The crux of your life lies right there. It doesn’t matter whether you know this little wisp of systematic theology or not; that isn’t the point. The point is that it’s either got to be God’s wisdom or yours. It’s either God’s way or yours. All that you and I have lived for, hoped for and dreamed over in our heart of hearts—life, safety, happiness, heaven, immortality, the presence of God—hinges on whether you’re going to accept the ultimate wisdom of the Triune God, as revealed in the Scriptures and in His providential working in mankind. Or are you going to go your own way?

The most perfect definition of sin that I know of is given by Isaiah in 53:6: “All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned, every one, to his own way.” Turning to our own way is the essence of sin. I turn to my way because I think it is wiser than God’s way. . .

This is the crux of our life. This is the difference between revival and a dead church. This is the difference between a Spirit-filled life and a self-filled life. Who’s running it? Who’s the boss? Whose wisdom is prevailing—the wisdom of God or the wisdom of man?
