(June 12, 2015)
How many times does the Lord miraculously save us – giving us the very blessing that we desire of Him – and rather than be grateful to Him we end up boasting in our own strength before Him? I know, at least in my case, it is far too often. I was trapped in a sinful state, and somehow managed to escape when so many people fail at the attempt. At times, I feel a sense of pride in “my” accomplishment. I forget the countless times I called on the Lord for help and protection and escape, and that it truly was a miracle (and not something that I did) that allowed me to escape.
