“Thus says the LORD, “Let not a wise man boast of his wisdom, and let not the mighty man boast of his might, let not a rich man boast of his riches; but let him who boasts boast of this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who exercises lovingkindness, justice and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,” declares the LORD” (Jer 9:23, 24)
Today I shall obey God’s command to boast in the Lord! Think of this: God made every snowflake different from every other snowflake. He made every fingerprint different from every other fingerprint. The stripes on the zebra are all different. There are no two alike. He made 9,000 kinds of birds and 200,000 kinds of flowers (see some in the picture). God is so extravagant! He forgives every repentant sinner. He hears every sincere prayer. He supplies every legitimate need. In Nigeria we praise this generous and creative God in a special chorus: “We go de hail-o! Jehovah Over-do! We go de hail-o!” In other words: Glory to God in the Highest!
Let me put it this way: our Heavenly Father is never unfaithful to His promises. He never gives false hopes. He never lies. He never wounds without giving healing! He never repents like men. He is never afraid, confused or weak. God is never stingy. We who know God, the believers in Christ, let’s boast about our Father who is in heaven! God is the greatest, mightiest, wisest, strongest, most kind, most loving and most patient of all! He is the most romantic Person in the Universe. He loves with an everlasting love. From everlasting to everlasting, God never changes! His love has no limits, His grace has no measure! He is the limitless God! He sent His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, to come to earth, to live among sinful men, to love them unto death. He died on the Cross that they may live eternally! They will be free to love their God and love one another.
This is my testimony: I am a child of God, a sinner saved by grace. That is how I know God. That is why I can boast in knowing God! I was a hopeless, ignorant, selfish, greedy, confused, proud and wicked person. I was a liability to my husband and to myself. But everything changed after I met the Nazarene, the Galilean! I am talking about my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ! I am born again by His Spirit and belong to the Family of God. All things became new for me! Glory to God!
Dear friend, God loves you too! Give your life to Christ! If you are already saved, let your faith rise and pray! Whatever things you are passing thru, remember this: God is greater than your circumstances. With God, all things are possible! At the name of Jesus, every sickness, lack, lust or loss must bow! Holy Spirit please take control! Father God, we give You alone all the glory! In Jesus name we pray, amen!
