Be Humble

Today's Word: May 19, 2022

In Daniel 4, King Nebuchadnezzar looked out over his magnificent city and said, "Is not this the great Babylon I have built as the royal residence, by my mighty power and for the glory of my majesty?" His attitude was, "Look at me. It is my power, my might, my majesty." The problem is that we aren't created to take the glory; we're created to give God the glory. God will show you His favor as long as you're letting His glory flow through you up to Him. But the moment you start keeping the glory, it will leave, which is exactly what happened to Nebuchadnezzar.

Be careful to give God the glory for your accomplishments. God opposes the proud. Always be humble and say, "God, it was Your goodness that got me to where I am, that delivered me from the mistakes I made, that kept the opposition from defeating me, and that opened the doors of opportunity. Thank You." When you give God the credit, He'll take you further than you ever dreamed.
