Boast of God

 

Jer 9:23-24  This is what the LORD says: “Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the LORD

We humans like to show how wise we are.  We boast of any of our perceived assets be it strength, money, artistic talent or intellect.  We falsely think our goodness come from our own being.  It is God who gives us our abilities.  We are to boast of God’s love, faithfulness, righteousness, provision, kindness, and justice to us.  The one thing I know without a doubt – apart from God I am nothing and can do nothing of any value.  Unless He gives me words and meaning I have nothing to say or write.  It is only by His grace that I am even on this earth.  It is He Who numbers my breaths and heartbeats.  When we are complimented about something we should give God the credit and thank Him for allowing us to be part of it.  We should give each day He gives us back to Him for Him to use us for His glory and purpose.  I can boast of God.  What a mighty God.  What a loving God.  Great is God and His Son, Jesus Christ.
