Ignorance is Bliss

Become foolish in your own eyes

 

Ignorance is Bliss (I Corinthians 3: 18-20) Amplified

 

18Let no person deceive himself. If anyone among you supposes that he is wise in this age, let him become a fool [let him discard his worldly discernment and recognize himself as dull, stupid, and foolish, without true learning and scholarship], that he may become [really] wise,
19For this world's wisdom is foolishness (absurdity and stupidity) with God, for it is written, He lays hold of the wise in their [own] craftiness;
20And again, The Lord knows the thoughts and reasonings of the [humanly] wise and recognizes how futile they are. 

 

"The saying ignorance is bliss", has its place. When we lean to our own understanding we succumb to the consequences of our limited intellect and knowledge.  It is when we ignore our own abilities that we open the supernatural door to be led by the Holy Spirit. 

 

I never learned to fight as a little girl. I have never been in a fight to this day. I guess I was saving it all for the devil.  I used to put my fingers in my ears and say  " La, la, la, la, la, la" to drown out the sound of my tormentors. I would take my fingers out of my ears long enough to see if they were still talking. If they were, I placed my fingers back in my ears and repeated "La, la, la, la, la, la" again, only louder. I am not sure why the bullies left me alone, but it worked for me. And so it is with being led by the Holy Spirit. Just say, " La, la, la, la, la, la" to your flesh. Admit that in your flesh, you do not have a clue. Even if you do, the Holy Spirit has a better way. Unplug your ears to the Holy Spirit and the Word of God by spending time with him as a dear and treasured friend.
