God Is Trustworthy

Psalm 44:8: Bragging Rights

If we “blow our own horn,” we annoy other people. If we brag about others too much, people question our judgment. But if we boast in the Lord, we exalt the One who rightly deserves all praise and adoration. We can never praise God too highly, because He pours out on us unlimited goodness, kindness, and faithfulness. “This is what the Lord says: ‘Let no wise man boast of his wisdom, nor let the mighty man boast of his might, nor a rich man boast of his riches; but let the one who boasts boast of this: that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord who exercises mercy, justice, and righteousness on earth; for I delight in these things,’ declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 9:23–24).
