Quitting Confidence

Last week I posted on quitting the resolutions. Today I wanted to briefly share this…

I quit having confidence in the flesh. It’s flawed. It fails. Most of all, it’s faulty from the fall. Why do I continue to put confidence in the flesh? Most of the time it’s in others and not even in my own flesh that I place confidence.

I put expectations, hopes, and affirmations safely in their keeping…and it’s ridiculous. We all fail. We are all imperfect. We disappoint and we stumble. Sometimes Most of the time we fall.

So today, on Thursday since it’s a good day to quit stuff. I quit having confidence in the flesh. I will boast in the confidence that is found in Christ. The stable, firm foundation. The steadfastness of HIS work, HIS character, and HIS promises. They have never failed…and they won’t start now.

For it is we who are the circumcision, we who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh… Philippians 3:3 

Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”  1 Corinthians 1:31
