Have you ever felt built up, encouraged, and maybe a little bit prideful? I know I have and today was one of those days. After having a wonderful day of being sharpened by a dear friend I left feeling very confident in my self... as I was driving home I thought to my self "how am I going to guard against being prideful"?
Well God through and Joyce Meyer had the answer for me; 1Corinthians 1:25-31
(yes I'm going to type it out because, lets be honest here, are you really going to go and dig out your bible? didn't think so:)
"For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man's strength. Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak thing of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things-and the things that are not- to nullify the things that are, so no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus who has become for us wisdom from God that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Therefore, as it is written; "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord".
So the time of me basking in my "competency's" is gone and I again cling to the verse given to me a few years back 1Corinthians 15:10 "By the GRACE of GOD I am what I am. His GRACE to me is not with out effect. No, I worked harder than all of them- yet not I but the GRACE of God that was with me." I am confidant in the Lord, I know that through him ALL things are possible and no plan of his is thwarted! (Job 42:2 Brayden's memory verse).
