Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Written by Papama
To be humble means to recognise we are not self-sufficient, rather that we depend on God for all we need. Everything is given by God and nothing is our own.
In the book of Deutoronomy, God fed the Israelites manna in order to prepare them to trust in Him as they went into the Dessert.
The Israelites were used to looking down at the ground in Egypt and working the land to provide for themselves. They trusted their own hard work for their provision. Now, they’d need to look up and trust God for His provision.
This manna God provided wasn’t like the normal food the Israelites were used to providing for themselves. But God knew it was perfect nourishment for those in the desert. He knows our needs better than we do. He is more concerned about our ultimate good than our temporary pleasure.
May we remain humble always and choose to trust our Lord Jesus Christ in everything. He knows our hearts!
