Dailies ~ in His Word
February 10
Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord today and He will lift you up.
James 4:7 says God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. We are told over and over to humble ourselves in the presence of God. Yet we choose to be proud and strong in our own power and our own might. God wants us to submit to His plans, His presence and His dreams for us.
We are tempted by this world to follow it’s dreams and desires but our God says to “resist the devil and he will flee from us” James 4:8 says that we should “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.” So it seems to me that we are to humble ourselves and get closer to God so that we will see what His plan is and then we will see that it is good, dare I say even better than what we think we need. Think though for a moment on that; God will lift us up when we humble ourselves to Him. We work and we struggle to get things done in this world, to get the prize of prosperity and happiness. Our God wants even more! He wants us to excel beyond just earthy wealth and to have a healthy relationship with Him not just man.
Let’s humble ourselves before Him today and allow Him to take the controls, or the wheel as the song says. Let God take over the direction finding gps! G- God’s P- Perfect S-Specific, plan for us!
Heavenly Father, thank you for Your directing of our path, for Your guidance today and every day that we humble ourselves to You. In Jesus name, amen. Teresa M. Wilson
