Boasting

The King of Assyria continues to boast of his strength and wisdom in destroying the people of Israel and Judah.  He considers himself to be a valiant man, and in his own eyes and the eyes of his own people, he was seen as exactly that.

I have considered  posting all the verses that boast of this man’s own success all in one day, but I think it’s important that we ponder over what he has to say about himself, never once mentioning that he is nothing more than a tool in the hands of Jehovah.

We need to consider our own pride and confidence in ourselves. We really do.

  1. Amen, amen, amen!!! Oh where would I be without Jesus, the one who gives me clarity of who I am in Him, strength in my weakness, purpose that only He can give! He is the vine and I am the branch and I hope I stay feeding on that vine so I can bear beautiful fruit for HIm! All glory to HIm!!
    Thanks for your words! It’s always good to remind ourselves of who we are in Jesus.
