Proverbs 22:4 says; "Humility is the fear of the Lord; its wages are riches and honor and life."(NIV)
True humility is not based on pleasing men but pleasing God. As the bible says in James 4:10; "Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up." If a man is low hearted, giving alms and loving men but is not willing to accept Jesus, God sees him as rebellious. He is proud in his own heart to God.
Moses told about the rebellion of the Israelites in Deuteronomy 9:23; "And at Kadesh-Barnea the LORD sent you out with this command: ‘Go up and take over the land I have given you.’ But you rebelled against the command of the LORD your God and refused to put your trust in him or obey him."(NLT)
True humility is obedience to God's word. He has given us his word as a guide to success. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right."(2 Timothy 3:16 NLT)
When you believe and obey God's word, you are justified before God. Remember, Abraham believed God and it was credited to him as righteousness.
"Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draws back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him."(Hebrews 10:38 KJV)
Heavenly Father, I thank you for your grace. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. Just as the bible says; "the just shall live by faith", my faith will produce successful results. I will be a success in all I do. I will never be disadvantaged in life, It will only get better in Jesus mighty name! Amen!
