Today Reminder - 28 October 2013 (Day 20 - Living in the Kingdom)

A reminder for today
But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the LORD his God by entering the sanctuary of the LORD's Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar. (2 Chronicles 26:16)

How are you my dear friend? I do hope you had a wonderful weekend and that all is well for the week ahead. We had an interesting weekend. Firstly we had to move out of our current house and then off course our new house is not finished yet. Now it is this moment that I guess we all have questions some times and so often we are not sure why things happen. Uzziah became very powerful because of God’s favour over His rule and this made him proud which finally led to his downfall.

When I look at all the things that have gone wrong over the last couple of weeks I realise that God wants us to remain humble and trust Him. Had we moved in we would have had a weekend without any power in our house, because there was a huge power failure in that area. Had we moved in we would have missed the opportunity to spend time with my brother and sister in law. We now know that God always has a purpose in all that He allows over our lives and I believe that we must remain humble within each of these challenges.

For the LORD delights in His people; He crowns the humble with victory. (Psalm 149:4)

Pride leads to disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. (Proverbs 11:2)

Come with me today my dear friend as we remain humble in our challenges and in our victories for the Lord delights in the humble and crowns them with victory. It is in our humility that the light of the Lord will shine and other will desire the same relationship with our King. 

Have and awesome day dear friend of Jesus
