Throughout the history of Man people have tried to outsmart God. This shouldn’t be a shock to anyone for the history of Man is the history of rebellion against God.
You hear this all the time when you see governments trying to silence the Gospel, when you hear scientists trying to explain it away or when you hear of courts trying to rule God out of the public square. We can see this when watch Hollywood productions that marginalize God and His people, when we study the religions of men and how they try to change the inconvenient facts about God, or when they seek to replace the true God with characters devised by men… Some of these things can seem persuasive at first, and then you think about it… In the end they don’t ring true; they bring about more questions than they could ever answer and as a result their adherents usually seek to silence any questions by one tactic or another.
There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan
that can succeed against the Lord.
Nobody is going to trick God; nobody is going to fool Him. Nobody is going to silence God; nobody will silence His message. .. He will never be mocked, and woe to the one who tries!
We can take heart in this, for when we are ridiculed and mocked for our faith in Him, we can stand firm in the knowledge of the truth and the fact that God will always be the Ruler of the Universe, and the day is coming when all men will know it and bow before Him.
Rather than be intimidated or silenced, we must know that those who would mock us are telling us that they need to hear the Good News about Jesus Christ; may we proclaim Him with boldness and sensitivity to the great need of our fellow-man!
