1 Corinthians 1:26-31 “Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”
This verse gives me such encouragement. I serve a God who doesn’t judge me by my weaknesses, but instead chose to use my weaknesses to show His strength. Whenever I am up against a challenge and I feel so small, so weak, so incapable I can turn the God Almighty and ask Him for His strength. And the amazing thing is that He always answers and will always work through us if we only let Him.
So, let us boast in God alone, who is everything that we are not.
In Christ’s Love,
