1 Corinthians 2:4-5
And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
Your faith must stand on the power of God and not man! This is so important because man makes mistakes and man can be deceiving. If you trust the Lord and commune with Him you will stand firm and not be tossed in the wind. You will be like a tree planted by living waters with deep roots. No matter how hard the wind blows or the water rises you will stand.
Evaluate how much faith you are placing in man verses Gods power. Is your local church doctrine more important to you than the word of God? If God told you to do something would you take the necessary steps to do it or would you let mans boundaries stop you? Do not break the law or disrespect leaders but you must seek God to believe what he says! You must seek God to build your faith in His power!
