And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from
God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written,
“Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.” (1 Cor. 1:30-31 ESV)
If I don’t put an end to this dribble, it will wreck me. So what is the best way to stop this? It's got to go something like this: “I know I’ve blown it again. And you're right, on my own I’m a complete failure—a loser! However, more importantly my God knows I'm a loser and He has had great compassion on me and my situation. So, I’m not toast. This isn’t the end. Jesus Christ is my wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption. I’m not up for the challenge but He is. My Lord is my sufficiency and I will not focus on my inadequacies. Instead, I will focus on and boast in Him and His steadfast love which always delivers me."
