Today’s verse

Proverbs 17:27 NLT
A truly wise person uses few words; a person with understanding is even-tempered.

Today’s reading
1 Corinthians 1

1 Corinthians 1:18-19 NLT
[18] The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.
[19] As the Scriptures say, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and discard the intelligence of the intelligent."

Today’s devotion
The Discipline of Dismay

My Utmost for His Highest

There is an aspect of Jesus that chills even a disciple’s heart to its depth and makes his entire spiritual life gasp for air. This unusual Person with His face set “like a flint” (Isaiah 50:7) is walking with great determination ahead of me, and He strikes terror right through me. He no longer seems to be my Counselor and Friend and has a point of view about which I know nothing. All I can do is stand and stare at Him in amazement. At first I was confident that I understood Him, but now I am not so sure. I begin to realize that there is a distance between Jesus and me and I can no longer be intimate with Him. I have no idea where He is going, and the goal has become strangely distant.

Today’s prayer
Dear Lord, Abba Father, lately I feel like ‘I have no idea where You are going, and the goal has become strangely distant.’ Help me to walk as one with You, even when I feel I am lost and wandering. Give me eyes of faith and keep my heart likened to Yours. Let Your light shine through me, even when I am in the dark, so that others will see my dependence on You. Forever thankful for all Your mercy and grace. Amen
