Reading for today:
1 Cor. 14:20-40
The deep walk of faith is one of trust. We trust who we know. The lifelong pursuit of knowing God is critical so we can truly know him and out of that knowledge we can trust him.
“Desperate faith is all about trusting God when the shaking begins and everything crumbles around you. Through the prophet Haggai, God speaks of shaking “heaven and earth, the sea and the land” (Hag. 2:6), and the writer of the book of Hebrews picked up the cataclysmic theme, explaining that this “indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain” (Heb. 12:27). What remains is the kingdom of God that cannot be moved, and by trust and trust alone, we enter it.” — Dallas Willard, Life Without Lack
