“Before destruction the heart of a man is haughty, and before honor is humility” Proverbs 18:12, NKJV.
“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8, NKJV.
Humility will always lead to obedience, and your obedience will always lead to honor. A heart of pride will ultimately dishonor and destroy you, yet humility will always cause you to receive from God the very thing you seek. As you become a humble man and trust God with your life, the christian walk, the honor, the increase, the fulfillment in your life will surely follow.
It takes a humble man to say “baby…you’re right”. It takes a humble man to say “You know what, I’ve been wrong”. Most of all, it takes a humble man to say I need God, and I submit to Your will.
For many of us, success in your christian walk in the new year will be determined by the level of humility you walk in. For some of us, God has been waiting to receive humility from you. Now He can lead you. Now you can hear Him speak. Now He can bless you. Now He can trust you with abundance. Your humility is going to be the defining factor for you. The lower you go, the higher He’s going to take you in the new year.
I prophesy if you decide to be a humble man, next year will be the best year of your life!
Prayer: Father, thank You for Your word. Help me to be a man of humility. I can’t do this on my own. You are God and I am not. Help me to live according to Who you are, and Who you have said You will be for me. Begin with humility and bless me with Your abundance for my life. Begin with humility and shape me into the man of honor You have called me to be. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
