Weekly Devotion Jeremiah 9:23-24

“Thus saith the Lord, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Neither let the mighty man glory in his might, Let not the rich man glory in his riches: But let him that glorieth glory in this, That he understandeth and knoweth me, That I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgement, and righteousness, in the earth: For in these things I delight, saith the LORD.”

The Lord tells us not to boast in who we are, whether wise, mighty, or rich. Our glory is to be in our knowledge of who the Lord is, because He is able to make wise, mighty, and rich; and without Him, we couldn’t be any of those. We are to glory in knowing the Lord’s lovingkindness, judgement, and righteousness.

Lord, You have given me Your Word so that I can learn who You are and who I am in light of You. In Your Word You show me that anything boast-worthy in me is from You. I have nothing to glory in. Please grow me in my knowledge of You. I want to daily better understand who You are so that I can better proclaim who You are to others. Teach me, Lord. I love You.
