“Thus says the LORD; ‘Let not the wise man boast in his wisdom, let not the mighty man boast in his might, let not the rich man boast in his riches, but let him who boasts boast in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the LORD who practices steadfast love, justice, and righteousness in the earth. For in these things I delight, declares the LORD.'” Jeremiah 9:23-24
Oh Lord, where shall I start today!
My friends, you are SO PRECIOUS to me! You have no idea!
The time is drawing near when we all will desperately need the love of a savior to draw us through the troubles that will surround us. Troubles that neither wisdom, nor might, nor even riches will pull us through. It will only be truly intimate relationship with the God of all Lights that will pull us through the darkness we are approaching.
We must understand and know the LORD’s steadfast love for us. (Genesis 24:12, Exodus 34:5-6, Psalm 6:4, Psalm 13:5, Psalm 17:7, Psalm 118) We must understand and know His justice. (Genesis 18:25, Matthew 1:19, Matthew 12:15-21, Romans 3:22-26, Romans 3:20, Romans 4:25, Romans 5:1, Acts 13:38-39, Romans 6:7) We must understand and know His righteousness. (Genesis 15:6, Deuteronomy 9:5, Deuteronomy 9:6, Job 29:14, Psalm 4:1, Psalm 5:8, Isaiah 51:7, 2 Timothy 4:8, Titus 3:5, Hebrews 11:7, James 2:23)
It is in our understanding and knowledge of these things that He delights. It’s important to Him that we “get Him”. He wants us to know Him as intimately as He knows us. But that can only come through time spent with Him. Spent reading His word and in prayer. He wants to share His secrets with you. Will you let Him?
