HOW TO HAVE FAVOR WITH GOD
But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.”
I wouldn’t stand on the top of a ladder in Walmart and scream your are all heathens, I am a child of God and I am better than you. That wouldn’t get me too far with Gods approval, but I will give a smile to someone who needs it. I will show humility in my walk with Christ Jesus.
Verses to meditate on today
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves,
When pride comes, then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom.
Better to be lowly in spirit along with the oppressed than to share plunder with the proud.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.
Song for my day
Brenton Brown (Humble King)
Dear father I ask that I speak with wisdom when I am in the presence of another. Let me be humble and never boast of what you have done for me. Let me speak of what you have done but never boast as if it were any part of me or something I have done to get grace other than answer the call. All I have done is surrendered to the king of all.
