WOTD: God Gives Grace to the Humble-Joyce Meyer

First Peter 5:5 tells us that God “sets Himself against the proud, but gives grace (favor, blessing) to the humble.” And anyone who thinks they’re a self-made man or woman has a rude awakening coming because Jesus said, “…Apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing” (John 15:5 AMP).

When we live in pride, trying to succeed without God’s help, we’re left open to so many attacks of the enemy. But humility is a covering that draws the help of God into our lives to protect us. When we humble ourselves by saying, “God, I don’t know what to do, and I’m trusting You,” God will help us.

God won’t allow us to succeed at anything unless we’re leaning and relying on Him. But when we humble ourselves under the mighty hand of God, in due time, He will exalt us (see 1 Peter 5:6). “Due time” is God’s time, when God knows we’re ready, not when we think we’re ready. The sooner we understand and accept that, the sooner God can work out His plan in our lives.

Prayer Starter: God, I humble myself before You, knowing that You will exalt me in due time. I can’t succeed on my own. I need Your help.

Memory Verse:Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders. Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for “God resists the proud, But gives grace to the humble.” (I Peter 5:5 NKJV)
