There are some extremely intelligent people in this world. They have numerous degrees, a lot of education, and a lot of experience. Here’s where it becomes an issue: some people are so intelligent and knowledgeable until their intellect can slowly push God out of the picture. They rely on their intelligence instead of relying on God.

When a problem comes, they don’t turn to God. They attempt to figure it out using all the knowledge they’ve accumulated over the years. If it works, they’re more likely to use their intellect again and again.

This is not a bash against intelligence. This is a reminder to put intelligence in its proper place. When a situation comes (great or small), go to God first. Once we’ve gone to God, He’ll show us what intelligence tool to use to fix the problem. He may even give us something we’ve never thought of before. That’s wisdom.

There’s nothing wrong with getting a great education and being knowledgeable, but be intelligent to know to go to God first about any situation and let Him show you the solution.

Proverbs 3:7 (GNT) Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the LORD and refuse to do wrong.
