Daily Readings — Not your own!

Day 2040: Sunday blessings to all!!!!!

Scripture: You were bought with a price; do not become slaves of men. I Corinthians 7:23   Know that the LORD Himself is God; It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves; We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. Psalm 100:3

Thoughts/questions:  Imagine someone showing you their expensive watch and you notice that they scratched the word ‘Rolex’ off and replaced it with their own name claiming to be responsible for the creation of this watch. A bit crazy, eh?

Yet aren’t we similar to that? Even though today’s verses tell us that we have NOT made ourselves and we have then been bought with the price of Jesus’ blood, we still tend to want to scratch God’s name off and replace it with our own!

Look what I’ve done, what I’ve accomplished, who I am – like we are bottom line responsible. No, we can’t scratch Rolex off a watch, and we are not to take credit for what God has done!

Be humble; understand that the Living God of the universe has chosen to partner with you; and be still and know that He is God!

Suggested prayer: Lord God, take away any pride I may have and thank You for creating me . . .
