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
https://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1+Corinthians+1&version=NLT

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
https://utmost.org/the-discipline-of-dismay/

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
