2 Corinthians 12:9 “But HE said to me, “MY grace is sufficient for you, for MY power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of CHRIST may rest upon me.”
When “most of all” greater one’s “self” then becomes, beyond thoughts and perceptions and everyone else…
then the stage has been set; “Down” fall shall follow suit!
Pride will surely precede it as Victory escapes.
But there is priceless Pride
when in CHRIST we go forth;
when surrendered we have every ounce of ourselves!
Then! The fullness of GOD
WHOSE indwelling reigns on…
shall be felt beyond worth
as we lift every Thought!
Seeking then everything
set above — even Heaven…
our reward will soon come
when HIS presence — returns!
As HIServant even prouder of my FATHER far beyond these very words,
Devotional: Colossians 3:2 “Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.”
This is a contrast to the definition of Defeat. Defeat says set your mind on things below! But we look upwards to CHRIST and not Self!
Titus 2:13 “Looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great GOD and SAVIOUR, CHRIST JESUS…”
How proud as HIS child are you! HE is coming back for you and will call you by name!!
Philippians 3:20 “For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the LORD JESUS CHRIST;”
What certainty! What a blessed and eternal Hope!
1 Peter 1:3-4 “Blessed be the GOD and FATHER of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, WHO according to HIS great mercy has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of JESUS CHRIST from the dead, to obtain an inheritance which is imperishable and undefiled and will not fade away, reserved in heaven for you…”
These verses all say the same thing! You can be perfectly proud of our HIM because HE has secured our Victory forever!
Galatians 6:14 “But GOD forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our LORD JESUS CHRIST, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.
Therefore! Be perfectly proud of HIM WHO is Ruler of All, KING of all kings, LORD over every lord and is our loving, eternal Heavenly FATHER!
Amen and amen!
