DAY 20 WEDNESDAY: OCTOBER 2021

FOLLOW THE PATH OF HUMILITY IN LIFE!

Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble” (1 Peter 5:5).

Every Christian is admonished to follow the path of humility because it is the path that leads to grace in life. God will always give grace to the humble to excel in life. The Bible says in the opening text that likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that God wants him to follow the path of humility in life. The path of humility is indeed the path that leads one into greatness and God’s favor in life. A life that is not clothed in humility is absolutely a life that can never receive God’s grace and favor in life forever.

The path of humility is the path of greatness in life. Anyone who wants to be great in life should learn to humble himself in the mighty Hand of God. That was what Jesus Christ demonstrated when He said in Matthew 18:4 thus, “Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Therefore, whenever a Christian learns to humble himself in the Mighty Hand of God, he definitely receives grace for exaltation in life. Humility will always lead to greatness because God will always give grace to the humble in life. The life of greatness and great favor is of course enveloped in one’s humility before God in life. Hence, a life that is devoid of humility is absolutely a life that had been destined for failure forever.

Whoever follows the path of humility can never be abandoned because God is always there to accept and support him in everything he does in life. That is the reason why the Bible says in Matthew 23:12, “And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” In fact, it is humility that actually brings divine exaltation and promotion to a Christian in life. Exaltation in life does not come by self-efforts and achievements but by the Spirit of the Lord in life. Therefore, God’s Spirit is indeed the power behind the exaltation of the humble in life (Zachariah 4:6). A life of humility is absolutely a life of divine enablement and exaltation in life forever.

Daily Tip: The path of humility is absolutely the path of greatness and favor because God will always give grace to the humble for exaltation and favor in life forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up (James 4:10).
