Sacred writing: But he giveth more beauty. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the glad, but giveth elegance unto the humble. James 4:6
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When a individual chooses to be a great Christian, keeping up goodness and mildness isn’t a struggle.
Sometime ago, I heard the story of a young man at an airport who assisted in helping an elderly man step into the aircraft. The elderly man wondered if people who respect elders still exist in the country. So, the elderly man asked the young man what he does for a living. The young man said he was a contractor and mentioned that he supplied some products to a particular company and was awaiting payment. The elderly man then told him that his son was the managing director of that company and further gave the young man his call card. Surprisingly, this young man was being owed about One Hundred Million Naira by this company. With that call card, the man was paid and other doors opened for him by virtue of his humility.
Meekness is a combination of humility and simplicity. It is a character that opens doors for people. If God resists the proud, then it means that the proud has no future (James 4:6). Beloved, when a person decides to be a good Christian, maintaining goodness and meekness is not a struggle. When you decide to be a real Christian, you cannot lack opportunities.
Beloved, today, I decree that the spirit of humility and simplicity rest upon you, in Jesus’ Name.
REMEMBER THIS: When a person decides to be a good Christian, maintaining goodness and meekness is not a struggle.
Ask God to impact you with the spirit of humility and meekness.
Determine to be teachable; resist every spirit of pride and arrogance.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the Spirit of humility and meekness. Remove the spirit of pride and arrogance from my life, in Jesus’ Name.
