Boasting in the Lord

"Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord." - 1 Corinthians 1:31
Lord, I recognize that in my own strength, in my own wisdom, and in my own flesh I am weak, foolish, and can do no good thing. However, I also recognize that I am no longer my own, but I am  Christ's. I am a new creation living in a whole new reality. Therefore, I have the strength of God and the wisdom of the Lord because I walk by the Spirit, filled with God's powerful grace. I can now do all things through Jesus Christ who strengthens me. I can even tell a mountain to be removed and it will. 

This blows my mind and humbles me to the core. The God of the universe cares for me, He is mindful of me, He would do this for me simply because I am now His son through Christ Jesus. So on this day, I boast in the Lord and His goodness. He is strong and mighty. He is my God. Therefore, this day I will live, not out of my own imaginary strength, but instead out of His strength and who I am in Christ.
