“‘but let the one who boast boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,’ declares the Lord.”
Never lose sight that God is Lord. Always put confidence in Him, the one behind your faith, more so than in your own ability to hope. Our self-confidence is no match for God-confidence. So the only way to exalt God in our life is to humble the arrogance.
