“And the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God.”  (1 Corinthians 1:28-29)

There are great mysteries.  No these are not things that we cannot explain, but things we can only begin to grasp.  How does the temporal comprehend the immortal?  No one has a right to boast before God who is immortal, eternal and all wise.  Do not depend upon your wisdom, but the wisdom of the One who knows all things.  Be comforted by His comfort and live into the life to which You have been called.

Lord, grant that I would shed this rebellious need to cling to my own understanding in order to come into the truth You have revealed.  You are the God of all ages.  Lead me in the truth of Your revelation that I would now and forever abide in You and You in me.  Lead me according to Your goodness that I may live in the wisdom You give, shedding the temporary ideas of this world.

Lord Jesus, You have come to lead the way.  Holy Spirit, the breath of wisdom itself, lead me in the way of truth that I would cling to the salvation which has been given and learn all the things You will teach.  Guide me now and always in the way of truth.  Lead me according to the Father’s purposes that I would forever abide with You, in You and for Your glory.  Guide me in Your wisdom.  Amen.
