Proverbs:Boast In God

“5Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. 7Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil. 8This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones. 9Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; 10then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.” ~Proverbs 3

Where is wisdom?

Where is honor?

Is your heart of gold?

Where is boasting?

Where are praises due?

Could it be you?

Could it be you?

Lift up

Lift up

Your eyes to the Heavens!

Lift up

Lift up

Your heart to the hills!

Raise your voice

To your God

Your Creator!

Lift it high

.

The fear of the Lord

Is wisdom

The honor of the Lord

Is His own

Your heart is made of gold

The strength of the Lord

Is where I will boast

The praises of the Lord

Are due Him

Are due Him

.

Lift it up

Lift it up

His ways will keep you from evil!

Lift it up

Lift it up

His ways will give you strength!

Raise your voice

To your God

Your Creator!

Lift it high

Lift up

Lift up

Your heart to the hills!

Lift up

Lift up

Your eyes to the sky

Jeremiah 9

‘23This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, 24but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.’

2 Corinthians 10

“16so that we can preach the gospel in the regions beyond you. For we do not want to boast about work already done in someone else’s territory. 17But, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.” 18For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.”

Job 28:28

“And to man He said, ‘Behold, the fear of the Lord, that is wisdom; And to depart from evil is understanding.’”

Isaiah 66:14

“Then you will see this, and your heart will be glad, And your bones will flourish like the new grass; And the hand of the LORD will be made known to His servants, But He will be indignant toward His enemies.”
