Glory in the Lord

Paul, talking to the believers in Corinth about the difference between the wisdom of the world and the wisdom of God says,

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty; and the base things of the world and the things which are despised God has chosen, and the things which are not, to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in His presence. But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God — and righteousness and sanctification and redemption — that, as it is written,

“He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.”

All Mighty and All Wise God,

Help us today to see ourselves as You do. Highly qualified – because of our foolishness, weakness and insignificance – to be used powerfully by You. We grasp, barely, that it is not us – but You – that gives the increase. But we desperately long to see the increase poured out. So, once again, we implore You, reveal and glorify Yourself to us and to the world.

Amen

Today I am reading: Job 33; I Corinthians 1-3

  1. John 15:4 (New International Version)
    Remain in me, and I will remain in you. No branch can bear fruit by itself; it must remain in the vine. Neither can you bear fruit unless you remain in me.
    Lord, please teach me to truly abide in You, to rest in You, to trust in You. Help me to allow your love, strength and wisdom to flow through me. Help me not to trust in my own ability.
