For the LORD takes delight in his people; he crowns the humble with victory.
Psalm 149: 4
Let someone else praise you, and not your own mouth; an outsider, and not your own lips.
Sometimes, God is testing us by putting us in a situation where we feel that we are inferior, insignificant and small. But don’t ever think that He abandoned you or His grace and blessings blocked its way towards your life. Perhaps, God wants to speak to you today, to deliver a message. A message to refresh everything. Try to assess your life and your perspectives.
Are you standing in a higher ground right now?
Do you still have that humble heart that the Lord perfectly endowed to you?
Or you’ve been marching with pride and arrogance to resonate the things and accomplishments you’ve done. Things like your looks, skills, financial stability, luxury, talents, connection and a lot of things that somehow make you boast about it.
God is teaching us to be humble in all our ways. He even emphasized that we should acknowledge Him in all our doings and He promised to make our path straight and grant us success in everything we do. How can God deliver all His plan to your life? A prosperous and abundant life if you are still gripping and refusing to let go of your pride?
Today, I pray for a humble heart in all of us. Even when you are in the situation that doesn’t affirm or conform to the things you visioned your life to be…think of it as a testing. God just want to sculpture a humble heart inside of us.
Yes. A humble heart.
For you and for me.
