God, our only boast is that we know You.
This is what the Lord says:
The wise person should not boast in his wisdom;
the strong should not boast in his strength;
the wealthy should not boast in his wealth.
But the one who boasts should boast in this:
that he understands and knows Me—
that I am the Lord, showing faithful love,
justice, and righteousness on the earth,
for I delight in these things.
This is the Lord’s declaration.
When I consider You, I have nothing to offer. I have no wisdom, strength, or wealth in the light of Who You are.
Forgive me for trusting in earthly things that will not last. I cannot boast in anything I have—recognizing You are the source of everything. All that I am, and all that I have, comes from You.
You are perfect love and perfect justice. Your amazing love and grace made a way for me to know You—through Jesus.
My heart’s deepest desire is to agree with Paul: “But as for me, I will never boast about anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.” (Gal. 6:14a)
