Yes, you need to gain a sufficiently adequate understanding of your situation in light of God’s provision for you! First Corinthians 2:6–16 describes the difference between human wisdom and God’s wisdom. Human wisdom is limited to what can be observed and worked out with human reasoning. The Scripture points out the value of reason and knowledge (Colossians 2:8; 2 Timothy 2:15) while demonstrating a difference between what the human’s mind can achieve and what God’s Spirit can reveal. God’s wisdom, including His plan to offer salvation through Christ’s crucifixion, must be received and believed spiritually through the Holy Spirit. Without the help of the Spirit, people cannot believe what is spiritual, so they reject all spiritual truth as foolishness. Christians, though, have access to the mind of Christ because of God’s Holy Spirit with us. That’s it!!!
