Daily Scripture: Year 1, Day 27

From A Journal of Sacred Readings

Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
Who depends on flesh for his strength
And whose heart turns away from the Lord.
But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,
Whose confidence is in Him. (Jeremiah 17:5, 7)

Read: Slowly read the Scripture passage several times.

Reflect: Reflect and ruminate on the words and phrases in the text. Which words, phrases, or images speak most to you?

Respond: Offer the internalized passage back to God in the form of a personalized prayer of adoration, confession, renewal, petition, intercession, affirmation, or thanksgiving.

Rest: What word or image encapsulates the spirit of the passage for you? Take a few minutes to present yourself before God in silence and yieldedness. When your mind wanders, center yourself by returning to the spirit of the passage.
