The other day the Lord led me to a verse of encouragement that I needed greatly.
2 Corinthians 10:18:
For [it is] not [the man] who praises and commends himself who is approved and accepted, but [it is the person] whom the Lord accredits and commends.
I love how He brought me to the verse. God led me to the specific “address” of the verse, not telling me the verse itself until I took the initiative to look it up. Even more so, it was through a dream. I saw in the dream a check with the amount 10.18.
This has helped me remember it as well, because of the unique way God spoke this to me and that I had to do the work of looking it up to see what God was telling me.
I can’t commend myself and be approved. Others can’t commend me and I be approved. Only God can commend me, and I be approved.
It was the word from God I needed that day, and is a truth I need continually day-to-day.
God, You are so wonderful, that You would even be mindful of us, that You love us so!
