In Galatians 6:14, Paul wrote, “But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.” King David boasted in the Lord as well in Psalm 34. Throughout Paul’s life as God’s fervent messenger of the Gospel, he faced one struggle and hardship after another, but despite all of his pain and suffering, God’s unfailing blessings of grace and mercy constantly surrounded him.
When you are struggling or your spirit has been crushed, do you seek the Lord? How has he calmed your fears? How has he rescued you? Take a moment and boast about your God and all he has done for you.
