For it is written: "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate." Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? — 1Corinthians 1:19-20
I know there's been a lot of discussion on the web about Susan Boyle over the last week or so, and I'm sure you've heard about her one way or another. As I watched this clip on U-Tube, the above verses came to mind. Here was this woman who by worldly standards didn't measure up, yet she blew everyone away with her outstanding voice. To watch this dear woman confound the judges and the audience was truly a delight. That was a God moment for me, one in which his presence is subtle yet deep in meaning.
I applaud Susan Boyle not only for her voice, but alos for proving the world wrong. And wow, what a voice indeed! Don't you just love it when God uses things like this to show us we really don't have things figured out like we think?
