August 29 Prayer
‘Jesus became for us wisdom from God.’
“The way you counsel and correct me makes me praise you more, for your whispers in the night give me wisdom, showing me what to do next.”
Psalms 16:7 TPT
Beloved, when you are corrected it is for your own growth. When you seek counsel you are being open for wisdom in your life.
Jesus is wisdom and will bring what you need when you are able to bow low to receive.
We do not boast in our own knowing or in our thinking that we are something without God.
‘For God chose the lowly and despised of the world, those who count for nothing, to reduce to nothing those who are something. So that no human being might boast before God.’ 1Cor.1:26-31
It is not that God doesn’t want us to be something but that he wants us to be everything in Him.
There is freedom and joy in correction, in guidance when we let Jesus show up in us. Wisdom comes in the form of Jesus.
Receive this blessing today.
Blessed be Christ in you
In the emptying of yourself
will be the filling.
in the turning will
be the way made straight.
In the stillness will
be the joy
of knowing you are beloved, and a cared for child of God.
In the nothings, in the despised and rejected of the world
there is the exalted presence of Mercy,
Purpose will be found in the humble.
Blessed be the eyes that are open to see Jesus
there in the things that are cast away,
the people that are not seen,
and to find wisdom in their worth.
Blessed be the work that is placed before you this day
the next thing you have to do,
and may you find joy in it and life comes from it.
May we all become nothing so we may
boast in the everything
God is doing and being.
May we learn from Jesus our wisdom teacher.
