Ps 44:8 “In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever.”
Is 45:25 “But all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the LORD and will make their boast in him.”
1 Cor. 1:31 “Therefore, as it is written: ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.'”
We are to boast in God alone. We are to boast that He is all powerful, all knowing, forever faithful, on our side, greater than our enemies, that He has already won the battle, that He paid the price, and in everything that He is and does. But, we are not to boast in our own strengths, in our own riches, in our own knowledge, or anything else that we do. This was a struggle for me until I realized that I bring nothing to the equation when it comes to God and His kingdom. So many scriptures start to make sense when you look at them in this light.
2 Cor. 12:5, 9-10″… but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. … But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
So, what are you going to boast about today? Let it be in what God is doing in your life today.
