Today's Bible Reading: 1 Corinthians 10:1-18; Psalms 123-125
Supplimental Reading: Acts of the Apostles pgs 309 - 322
God's Character of Love
In 1 Corinthians He is faithful. In Psalms He is merciful, on our side, defender, our help and creator.
Jesus and Him Crucified
In 1 Corinthians Paul says of Jesus, in reference to the experience of the children of Israel in the wilderness, "For they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them, and that Rock was Christ." In Psalms Jesus is revealed as the One we look to for mercy and the One to whom when we place our trust in Him, we become unshakeable.
Verse(s) that speak to me today
1 Corinthians 10:13 "No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make a way of escape, that you may be able to bear it." Psalms 125, "...trust in the Lord."
The Holy Spirit says to me today
Trust Me. I will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you can bear and will always provide you a way of escape.
