If you humble yourself before people, they will follow you effortlessly. Humility is key to leadership. Humility doesn’t reduce you, rather, it increases you.
SCRIPTURE: But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. James 4:6.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Humility is the fuel of light, and light is the fuel for distinction.
The Scripture makes it clear that pride is a destroyer of destiny. The destinies of satan and Vashti were destroyed by pride. Our anchor Scripture reveals that God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble. The humble are effortless beneficiaries of God’s grace.
Now, let us take a look at some key thoughts on humility.
1. Humility magnetizes grace
Humble people don’t beg for grace; rather, grace rushes for them. This is because humility magnetises grace. Where your humility stops, there your grace finishes. Whenever you lack humility, you will lack grace, and when you lack grace, you are de-graced. And when a man is de-graced, he will be disgraced. Humility is the magnet of grace and grace is the door for ease. Anyone who carries grace experiences ease.
2. Humility or meekness is the doorway for insight or light.
Humility is the doorway for insight, light or revelation (Psalms 25:9).
There are things God shows meek people that He will not show any other person.
Moses asked God to show him His Face. But when God passed by, He covered Moses’ face and showed Moses His back parts (Exodus 33:23). I believe that was why Moses was able to write the Book of Genesis that gave account of creation of the world even when he was not born at that time. God didn’t show anyone the revelation of history the way He showed Moses. What gave Moses such access was humility. If you say you cannot hear God or get His attention, please ask Him to break every trace of arrogance in you. Humility is the fuel of light, and light is the fuel for distinction.
3. Humility is the key to leadership.
Humility puts you ahead. When you are full of self, you are empty of people. When you are full of yourself, people will leave you to yourself. If you humble yourself before people, they will follow you effortlessly. Humility is key to leadership. Humility doesn’t reduce you, rather, it increases you.
My counsel is, make the choice for humility.
Remember this: Humility is the fuel of light. And light is the fuel of distinction.
1. Ask God for the grace to humble yourself always.
2. Practice humility as a lifestyle in order to fulfil destiny.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the discipline to humble myself before people. Let humility be my lifestyle always, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
