The One the Lord Commends
Scripture: 2 Corinthians 10:18 For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord Commends.
Observation: I used to be very boastful to others bragging about things I could do and have done or at least thought I had done. I felt I needed to bring myself up because no one else would do it for me. I have nothing and am nothing accept for what the Lord has made me and works through me. My Lord will only commend me when I’m doing His will and His will his to worship him.
Application: I need to be focused on God and try my best to please him. That the Lord will commend me because I’m saying the words He wants me to say, doing the things he wants me to do and being the man he wants me to be.
Prayer: Dear Father I am only a man and I get caught up in this world and the flesh of pride. I am nothing in myself, but I am a child of yours. Teach me how to fulfill the purpose you have created me for.
