Isn’t it amazing how everything works out for good for those who love God?

I’m learning that the bottom line in Christian living is to walk in complete humility. The first thing Jesus told to the multitude on the mountain was “Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” The poor in spirit refers to the humble spirit. As a Christian, if you want to walk worthy, you have to be humble.

I’ve realized, in my own life, how terribly difficult it is to be humble; especially when God gives you a gift. Naturally, you want to boast to the world about this gift. But if you’re not careful, God will use the reproaches of your enemies to keep you from exalting yourself above measure.

Paul wrote in 2 Corinthians 12:7 (Two Corinthians lol) “And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measures.” Paul had many visions and revelations from God; but in order to keep him humble, God allowed the devil to buffet him so that he didn’t exalt himself over anyone.

If you’re wondering, like I was, why you still suffer with certain things, it could be that God is keeping you humble because there is greatness in you. Give thanks to Him because of He loves you, He will protect you from exalting yourself…Even if it comes in the form of a thorn in the flesh.

Isn’t it amazing how everything works out for good for those who love God?

Remember to be humble and meek in everything you do!

This is what the Lord says: “Let not the wise boast of their wisdom or the strong boast of their strength or the rich boast of their riches, but let the one who boasts boast about this: that they have the understanding to know me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord. (Jeremiah 9: 23-24).

God Bless You!
