God appreciates all of our accomplishments as well as the good deeds that we do. It can be tempting to bring glory to ourselves by “tooting our own horn” whenever the opportunity arises.
As Christians, our primary purpose is to bring glory to God. Let’s make sure to do everything only for His glory, and give it no further thought. Rather than pat ourselves on the back, let’s allow Him to pat us on the back, in His way and in His timing.
Whatever storms you may have to face, God wants you to know that He is able to keep you and bring you through. Ask God to once again show you the power that is at work in you. Live life with the blessed assurance that God is able!
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.” James 4:10 (KJV)
