“IT AIN’T ME!”

“But, ‘Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.’ For it is not the one who commends himself who is approved, but the one whom the Lord commends.”   2Corinthians 10:17-18 NIV

 

Read 2Corinthians 10:1-18

 

From my northeast Texas ancestry, “It ain’t me” could be taken for proper English.   Proper or not, there are times we would all like to take credit for something we have no rights to claim and other times to avoid association, we would chime in with “It ain’t me!”.

 

I wear a lot of hats in this ministry and I am often asked how I do all I do.  My answer is easy; “It ain’t me!”   I do what I do only because I am not capable.  Preaching, writing devotionals, helping pastors and churches and remodeling the house to be used as a pastors’ retreat is what GOD is doing through me.  It ain’t me…it is GOD!

 

Today’s scriptures tell us of Paul and the other disciples desires to deliver the gospel without any credit of their own.   Paul had been an evil man and this humble attitude was opposite from whom he had been.

 

How about you?   Do you have a humble attitude in all you do?   You can be like Paul.   You can take on a life of submissive achievement.  Take on the world with the confidence that can come only from GOD.   Lay your ego aside and trust in our RISEN SAVIOUR.

 

Today’s prayer: “LORD, Thank YOU for all you do through me.   Help me to do more, much more, as I listen to YOUR instructions.   I am ready for YOU to use me as YOU desire.   Amen.”
