My Boast

There have been many throughout the ages who have boasted in their wisdom, strength, and wealth. Yet, all of these come to an end in their ability. In wisdom, there are a great many questions unanswered. In strength, enemies that can’t be overcome. In wealth, things that can not be possessed. Who by wisdom has found a cure for cancer, aids, or ebola? Who by strength has fought the battle with death and won? Who by wealth has eliminated poverty, hunger, and homelessness? We find in all of our earthly power that we still come up short. So where then shall we boast? The scriptures tell us he who understands and has knowledge of God; the one who knows God as Lord. This is our boast. That God is exercising loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. That he delights in these things and by them will do for us what we can not do ourselves. Boast in God, that He has the answer to every question, that He is our strength for every weakness, and He is the supply for every need.
Jeremiah 9:23-24
'Thus says the Lord : “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord , exercising loving kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord .'
