Jeremiah 9:23-24 — The Truth About Boasting

This is what the LORD says:
“Don’t let the wise boast in their wisdom,
or the powerful boast in their power,
Or the rich boast in their riches.
But those who wish to boast
should boast in this alone:
That they truly know Me and understand
that I am the LORD
who demonstrates unfailing love
and who brings justice and
righteousness to the earth,
and that I delight in these things.
I, the LORD, have spoken.”
Jeremiah 9:23-24 (NLT)

On The Wings Of Prayer – Helen Steiner Rice

On the wings of prayer
our burdens take flight
And our load of care
Becomes bearably light
And our heavy hearts
are lifted above
To be healed by the balm
Of God’s wonderful love.
Helen Steiner Rice

The heart of prayer is prayer from the heart.

Does God Care?

“He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3 (NASB)
It would be one thing if God sat on His throne safe in Heaven, immune from all suffering while He watched us in agony on earth. Some might feel justified in accusing Him of not caring. But that is not the case. For one thing, we must understand that our suffering causes Him grief. We understand this, because we hurt when someone we loves hurts. God was so moved by our suffering that He sent His Son to suffer in our place. Do we grieve when innocent children are abused by wicked men? So did God grieve when His innocent Son was abused by wicked men. Yet He knew this suffering was necessary in order to deliver us from eternal suffering.
