1 PETER 5:6 “So humble yourselves under the mighty power of God, and at the right time he will lift you up in honor.” (NLT)
The Bible encourages us to walk in humility. Humility is in action “not I but Jesus, let I decrease and let Him increase”. Most of the time we have been taught to fight for ourselves in this world, we fight for pride, honor, position…etc. Sadly most of the time when we fight for ourselves we tend to fail, but the Bible gives us a better formula i.e to be humble because when we are humble we don’t have to fight for ourselves but God would do the fighting for us and He will lift us up to a position from where no power can bring us down.
When we choose to humble ourselves, He is so delighted that He is the One who lifts us up! We don’t have to fight and strive for our position because our God will exalt us at just the right time
