As much as God is doing and has done in our lives, we don't boast about Him enough! Oh, but we will brag about getting the promotion, landing the sale of a new property, and purchasing a brand-new car or house. We even brag when we go on vacation. We brag on and boast about ourselves more than we boast about God. Some of us don't even take the time to thank God. But that's another story for another time.
Starting today, tell people what God has done for you. And where He has brought you from. Trust me when I say - you did not do it all alone. God definitely had a hand in it. You didn't or don't realize it.
The gifts, talents and skills you have are from God. The authority and power over the enemy came from God. It is God who gives the strength, knowledge and wisdom to do what He has already ordained to take place in our lives. Let me give you a few scriptures to meditate on today. Hopefully, they will inspire you to start boasting more about the goodness of God.
Scriptures to reflect on:
2 Corinthians 10:17 NLT - As the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”
Romans 15:17 NASB95 - Therefore in Christ Jesus I have found reason for boasting in things pertaining to God.
Philippians 4:13 NKJV - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Romans 8:37 NKJV - "Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us."
Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV - Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; And lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, And he shall direct thy paths.
