Scripture: Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 1 Peter 5:6. NIV
Thought For The Day: God only raises the humble and humbles the proud.
It has been confirmed that our God is a Raiser and not a user of men (1 Samuel 2:8). He raises the poor ones from the dust and sets them in high positions of life. There are many people in the Bible that God raised; men like Abraham, David, Daniel, Esther are typical example of people who were raised from nothingness to prominence.
Today, God is still raising people to the top places and positions of life. Even though God raises people, it is not everyone He raises. Who are the type of people God raises?
It is the humble, simple or lowly!
God only raises the humble and humbles the proud. He dethroned Nebuchadnezzar, Herod and Lucifer who lost their glorious destinies due to pride.
Beloved, if you must impact your generation, you must be humble; you must come to the point where you have nothing to boast and brag about except your dependence on God.
Being a vessel that God will use in your generation entails humbling yourself before God and letting Him know that without Him, you are nothing.
Remember this: God only raises the humble and humbles the proud.
1. Ask God for the grace to be humble always.
2. Ask God to deal with every trait of arrogance in your life.
