AVOID BOASTING

There is nothing to boast about in life. Jh 3:31, 1 Cor 4:7, 2 Cor 12:10, Phil 2:13

Beware of boasting.

David said, “Except in the lord build the house they labour in vain that build it. Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain”- Ps.127:1

Boasting in the flesh engenders carnality, strife, competition and offences.

The more you boast the more grieved you could become especially by those who don’t have value for you.

The cure to boasting is visions and revelation.

After Paul had listed his catalogue of “Achievement” in a boast he suddenly realized that there wasn’t a need for it and therefore switched into the realm of visions and revelations. 2 Cor 11:16-18, 2 Cor 12:1

Boasting in the flesh is dangerous and can lead to catastrophy and even severance from grace because grace is considered unnecessary and needles to boasters.

Those who dwell on visions and revelations no longer see self and there find no reason to boast.

Vision and revelation makes you dwell in the realm of grace.

Boast is done often to cover and protect the weakness that dwells in self.

But vision & revelation moves you to rather draw strength in the face of human weakness.

Live boasters to keep boasting and refuse to be entangled by them. rather keep gliding on vision and revelation as you draw from the inexhaustible account of grace.

Revelation takes you above and beyond the realms of comparism. You just simply become a wonder to your peers.

HOW TO FULFILL YOUR DREAM! | Today: 2018-01-24

It is action that connects dreams to fulfillment and transforms vision to possession.

God has spoken into your future, He has designed and predicted it but He will not reverse     your  future to come and meet you. You have to take steps towards your future.  

WISDOM: “Wisdom is profitable to direct” (Ecclesiastes 10:10).

Be calculative in the steps you take. Be a planner; make short term and long term plans.

Work with the facts available to you.

The prodigal son made his way back home with the following facts:

(1) In my father’s house, even servants have more than enough food to eat.

(2) My father would forgive me if I return home.

(3) If he will not accept me back as a son, he will at least take me as a hired servant.

With these in mind he made his way back home and was restored to dignity (Luke 15:17-19). Facts will strengthen you to take. The appropriate steps you need to take.
