God be praised (Galatians 1:24)

(Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading – Deuteronomy 13-15 & Galatians 1)

“And they praised God because of me.”  Galatians 1:24

What lessons are there for me in this Scripture?

What a role model Paul is.  He has done something but God has received the praise.

I can do nothing of spiritual value on my own.  Every good gift and every perfect gift comes to me from Him.  I can take no credit.  Instead, I must redirect credit to Him.

I must assure folks that everything with me is God-willing.  To do otherwise is folly.

What strength I can have in Him!  I must know Him intensely so that His ways become my ways.

I must stand up for correction at every juncture.  I cannot depend on myself for anything.,  I must beg Him to remove the sludge from my life that slows me down in following Him.
