Text: 1 Peter 5: 6. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
Humility is a great virtue of excellence.
It is a great key that unlock doors of glory.
Our Bible text reveals this great act as a key for promotion.
When we humble ourselves under the mighty hands of God, we attract His blessings.
Little wonder why many people tarry in a particular position as a result of pride.
Pride is a great killer of a man’s destiny.
God hates the proud but shows mercy and favor to the humble the Bible tells us in Matthew 23:12.
Many believers are brought low because of their pride.
Again the Bible tells us that whoever exhalts himself will be humbled and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. See Psalm 138:6, Proverbs 3:34, 29:23, Matthew 23:12.
God requires a humble heart from us.
Jesus in His words said, unless we be like little children, who knows no pride and holds no grudges, we will never enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 18:3.
As children of God, we must learn to approach God and men with a humble heart.
Take a self examination on your life today and correct your steps on areas where you have missed it as a result of pride.
I pray Grace be released unto you to live a life that would glorify the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
