I was feeling good about myself because i am days away from reading the whole Bible in less than a year. The last time i read the whole Bible was around 1976about 38 years ago. Reading the Bible meant so much. As I resisted the truths or revelations in the Holy Book,i struggled , confessed and repented, i felt or sense cleansing going on and in on my being.Somehow my flesh tried to get credit for nearing what for me is an accomplishment.
But God put me back down through our pastor's teaching about holiness.Basically it is through God's work in us that we are able to accomplish God's will in our lives. As I ponder my life I could see how God patiently endured my sinful ways and prevented me from more sinful lifestyle.
Truly God shows infinite forgiveness , mercy, patience , love for us. He deserves our praise . He alone deserves the glory.
