“But those who wish to boast, should boast in this alone; that they truly know me and understand that I am the LORD who demonstrates unfailing love and who brings justice and righteousness to the earth, and that I delight in these things. I, the LORD, have spoken!”
I want to boast in the Lord. I don’t know that I would say yet that I “truly” know Him…who can really know Him except for the Son?
My hold on the scripture that was seared into me last week is still there…although I still continue to experience worrisome thoughts. When I catch myself thinking them, I repeat the verse to myself: For God did not give me a spirit of fear, but a spirit of power, of love, and of a sound mind.
Any victory that happens in this defeating anxiety arena is due to the Lord and the Lord alone! The Word of God is a sword, and I’m finding that using it in my mind this way helps slice up my way of thinking!
