Do you know someone who is arrogant and proud? Have seen individuals who are servants of Christ who do not walk in humility? They are not humble before men and even God. Never use your personal relationship with Christ as an excuse to disobey and rebel when it suits you. God resists those who are proud, but those who are humble can expect to receive an infinite supply of His grace.
Though Abraham received the covenant promises of God, he continually humbled himself. After God commanded him to walk upright before Him, Abraham humbles himself and bows before the Lord.
And Abram fell on his face: and God talked with him, saying, As for me, behold, my covenant is with thee, and thou shalt be a father of many nations. Gen 17:3-4 (KJV)
How do you respond to God’s word whether by inspiration, revelation, or a sermon? When you hear or read it, do you humble yourself before God? Or, do you justify how you are rather than allow His words to be the governing factor in your life?
Abraham humbled himself and God, once again, established His covenant with him. His humility set him up for a blessing. When we humble ourselves before the Lord, we set the stage for God to do great things that He has purposed for us. On today, take time to examine your humility level before God. If it is low, adjust it and see how it will change your life.
of the Week:
“I thank you that you abide with those who are humble. On this day, I humble myself before you, acknowledging your awesome power, but gentle grace. I thank you for all you are to me. Amen”
