Today Reminder - 13 July 2012 (Humble)

My prayer for you for today is that you will humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, in Jesus name.

1 Peter 5:5-7
In the same way, you younger men must accept the authority of the elders. And all of you, serve each other in humility, for “God opposes the proud but favours the humble." So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time He will lift you up in honour. Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.

Humble - God opposes the proud but favours the humble. It is so easy to be proud and to know that I have been so successful and I have all these achievements and I am just the greatest.  Oh boy, can we love ourselves. I guess huge success can easily propel our pride and place us in a position where we can idolise ourselves or whatever it is that we have achieved. Being proud of yourself is one thing, but letting self-pride take away God’s glory is not a good thing. God opposes the proud, God does not like a proud heart that holds no place for Him.

My dear friend it is so important that our own pride does not place us in a position of self-idolising. God favours a humble heart and in being humble the glory will be God’s.  All that we are and all that we do is because of His love and grace. God will lift you up in honour at the right time and it will be His doing, because in honouring you – He will be glorified.

 Give all your worries and cares to God, for He cares about you.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus

Cheers
