“God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. Therefore humble yourself under the mighty hand of God that He may exalt you in due time” (1 Peter 5:6).
There is something about being humble yet hungry… We should be happy with where we are but not content to stay there. Humble that God has brought us this far but we should also realize that God has so much more for us than just this…
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us” (Eph. 3:20)
God wants to do more than you are I can think or imagine in our lives, and let’s be honest we can all think of great things we would want to happen in our lives. But the kicker is that we have to stay humble… you have to have your heart in the right place and your motives have to be true…
“And even when you ask, you don’t get it because your motives are all wrong–you want only what will give you pleasure” (James 4:3)
So to stay humble yet hungry is the key!
We are not static in our nature we are dynamic and always changing. You will wake up tomorrow and you will be a little different than you were the day before. Soon your tomorrow becomes your yesterday that shapes your future, and what did you do with it?
Are you Humble yet Hungry?
God resists the proud because they have no room for Him in their lives, you or I would not be alive without God first. He knew us before we were knitted together in our mother’s womb and He has a plan for us to prosper, but are we to proud to give Him time.
“…Don’t you realize that friendship with the world makes you an enemy of God? I say it again: If you want to be a friend of the world, you make yourself an enemy of God.” (James 4:4)
So if you want to be proud and fed by the worlds standards you make yourself an enemy of God, but if you stay HUMBLE YET HUNGRY God will feed you with the living bread and water.
Don’t be satisfied to stay where you are in your relationship with God but be Humble enough to know that God has you VERY best interest at heart.
STAY HUMBLE YET HUNGRY!
