If anyone is threatened by the strength God has given his people – women or men – it might indicate they lack confidence in him as well.
Those who belong to Jesus, though, are children of the Living God. Be confident in him because of that. He makes you stronger than you could ever imagine.
For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength. … But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. … Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” (1 Corinthians 1:25, 27, 31.)
People might not understand it, they might even think you are foolish or weak, but God’s wisdom and strength are yours.
