Boast in God

Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed king. He will answer him from his holy heaven and rescue him by his great power. Some nations boast of their armies and weapons, but we boast in the Lord our God. Those nations will fall down and collapse, but we will rise up and stand firm. Give victory to our king, O Lord! Respond to our cry for help. Psalm 20: 6-9 NLT

Who do you know that has been rescued by God?

How did God show God's strength and power in that person's life?

Can you boast of God's power over all other things such as prestige, popularity, money and knowledge?

What kind of actions would God have to make in your life for you to put your trust and stance on God 100% of the time?

If God has already done this, can you say in about three sentences what God has done for you to boast in God's power rather than your own?

When can you share this with someone who needs to hear it?

God, we should be boasting in your power alone. But often we boast instead on the money we make, the things we own, and the people we know. We ask for victory in your name and in your way, Lord. Help us to find the words to share with others what you have done in our lives. In Jesus' name. Amen.
