The opposite of what you think

Luke 14:11 For whosoever exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.

God’s ways are not our ways. We think that we need to look out for number one, ourselves. We believe our own press releases. We write them to make ourselves look better than we really are. We look for our picture. We listen for our name.

We want to be recognized. I suffer from this same disease. I am not preaching at you but even to myself. If we want to be exalted, we need to humble ourselves. We need to believe that only God will give us honor. We are not to seek it.

I am sure you know this but God is very different from what we know on this planet. With God, the way up is down, the way to get is to give, the way to live is to die, the way to be whole is to be broken, the way to lead is to serve, and so many more.

So you called now to humble yourself and allow God to do with you what He will. Will you trust Him to work in your life whatever is His best for you?
