A man says, “I am a man of my word”. This one means well, but I would rather be a man of God’s Word.
If I boast that I am able to keep my promises, I trust in myself and I will fail. Sickness and misfortune, forgetfulness and sloth, crouch behind the corner and wait for a weak moment. The one who boast in his own ability does not understand his own frail nature.
But if I trust the one who is the Living Word I will never fail.
The man who boast in His righteousness, boasts from the perspective of this world. The man who trust in God, boasts that God alone is good.
I am a man of God’s Word. You will find fault with me. But you will not find fault in the one I trust. I do not ask you to trust me. Even I do not trust me!
By His Grace
