Jesus tells us that “whoever humbles oneself will be exalted” (Mt. 23:12). Two things to note: to be humble is a choice, and the action of exalting belongs to God. In other words, if we choose to kneel before God and recognise that everything that we are and do is gift, it is then that the Lord, the Giver of gifts, will raise us to new heights with His power and love.
Lord Jesus, Your word tells us that You desire, and are pleased, when we walk humbly with You. Help us to humble ourselves in Your sight, and allow You to lift us high. Amen.
