“Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time.” 1 Peter 5:6 (NIV)
Some are quick to magnify themselves, usually at the expense of others, but not the follower of Christ. We should not get discouraged when we are overlooked for promotions or are not acknowledged by others for our accomplishments. Our life is not dependent on accolades of men, but on humbleness before our God and yielding to His timing.
God knows and does not forget what we go through or what we give for others. Heaven may be the first we may feel recognized for our efforts and work for others here on earth, but that is exactly when it counts most.
Let’s pray today for patience and a willingness to depend on God’s exaltation, not man’s.
