Some people just love to brag about their education, their job,their house,cars,etc. Yet they never thank God,for anything, as if they did it all on their own. Technically it’s not yours ,and if you don’t believe, i dare you to take it with you,when you die,allow me to tell you what God says.
“The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, The world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, And established it upon the waters. Who may ascend into the hill of the Lord? Or who may stand in His holy place? He who has clean hands and a pure heart, Who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, Nor sworn deceitfully”. (Psalms 24:1-4 NKJV).
“My soul shall make its boast in the Lord; The humble shall hear of it and be glad”. (Psalms 34:2 NKJV)
“Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord”. (Jeremiah 9:23-24 NKJV).
“…that, as it is written, “He who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” ( 1 Corinthians 1:31 NKJV). “
“But “he who glories, let him glory in the Lord.” For not he who commends himself is approved, but whom the Lord commends”. (
II Corinthians 10:17-18 NKJV).
“But God forbid that I should boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world”. (Galatians 6:14 NKJV)
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them”. (Ephesians 2:8-10 NKJV).
In conclusion, know this:
God Sees and Rewards our Good Works
And whatsoever all of you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men.
For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which all of you have showed toward his Name…
+God rewards us for the works we do in His Name and for His Glory.
+Let us not allow ourselves, others or that dumb devil to discourage our good works for the Lord.
+Do not allow anyone to use you or take advantage of you while you doing the Lord’s good works. Amen!
+In Mark 10:28-31 Jesus said He will give back to us 100% increased on the return for our good works.
+Even though the Lord rewards us for our good works, let us not do good works for the rewards but out of a heart of love for our Lord Jesus Christ.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
