Romans 16:25-27 – Now to him who is able to strengthen you according to my gospel and the preaching of Jesus Christ, according to the revelation of the mystery that was kept secret for long ages but has now been disclosed and through the prophetic writings has been made known to all nations, according to the command of the eternal God, to bring about the obedience of faith – to the only wise God be glory forevermore through Jesus Christ! Amen.
As we come to the end of an almost year-long study in Paul’s incredible letter to the Romans, he’s saying that it’s all about life, and relationships, and ministry, and these categories of wise, foolish, and evil will be very important to live freely into the future.
I believe as we wrap up this book, the Holy Spirit has a specific word to speak to you. He has a burden to lift for you. He has wise counsel to speak into your life. He has people who are hurting for you to minister to.
If you’re feeling weak today, the Holy Spirit wants to meet with you to strengthen you, to give you supernatural, divine, strength by the power of the Holy Spirit. Paul says that if we want a word from God, the best thing to do is open the Word of God.
Whether you’re wise, foolish, or evil, if you open the Word of God, you will meet the Spirit of wisdom. He will strengthen, transform, encourage, and empower you. He will make you like Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and God does supernatural, incredible ministry through the Word of God. Get into the Word of God and get the Word of God into you.
Here’s the good news – God has an eternity set, prepared, and planned for you. He’ll never leave you; He’ll never forsake you; He’ll never abandon you; He’ll never betray you. God is never evil, God is never foolish, God is always faithful, God is always wise.
