My Boasting...

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
(Jeremiah 9:23-24)

Is there anything in my life that is worthy to be boasted?
When I see my surrounding…
When I see my friends…
When I see my colleagues…
When I see their prosperity…
When I see their wealth…
When I see their measure of success…
When I see it all…

Benchmarking them, it seems there is nothing to be boasted in me…
But when I look into my heart…
When I look into my life…

I find one thing worthy of boasting…
I KNOW HIM WELL…!
I KNOW HIS HEART…!
I KNOW HIS VOICE…!

We know one another…

I have God…
I know Jesus…
I am assured of my life and salvation…
Peace, Joy, Security in Him…

Then I lift my head and say: “I know and I understand you Lord, that you are Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth….”

And my wife sings…”Lord, you are more than enough for me….”
