James 4:10 (NIV) Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Humility doesn’t save us, but it can save us a great amount of grief. Humility doesn’t change your circumstances, but it helps you submit to God’s purposes no matter what the circumstances. Humility doesn’t speed up answers to prayer, but it accelerates the acceptance of God’s will.
Humility doesn’t make decisions for you, but it inclines your heart toward decisions consistent with God’s plan. Humility doesn’t earn you more of God’s love, but it helps you experience God’s love at a deeper level.
Rewards, sustenance, wisdom, guidance, intimacy, grace, renewal, and revelation, each hinge on an attitude that accompanies our faith. The early twentieth-century preacher and theologian, Oswald Chambers, called humility “the great characteristic of a saint.”
Point to ponder- For all its benefits and blessings, humility is the best way to go for God’s people. In fact, it’s the only way to go.
