Daily Thought – Exaltation from above!!

Comments

Word: Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 1 Peter 5:6

Thought: Many of us have a good start but do not wait for a heavenly exaltation. We have a humble start in the Lord and as we grow sometimes our pride also grows along with it. This pride is like a thorn which grows along with the good plant and could choke it anytime and is a power tool used by our ‘adversary’. Jesus overcame this wonderfully well from the time of temptation on the mountain to the time on the cross and waited for His father to exalt him to His right hand. This humble and awaiting for the heavenly exaltation is needed for us, else we could be choked easily with the pride that grows in us. Also we need to wait humbly for His time, rather than searching for exaltation in our own ways – this could be in any walk of life and especially in work and ministry. Let us humble and wait under the hand of God for a mighty exaltation from above in due time.

Prayer: Dear Lord, help me to wait on you humbly that you might exalt me in due time. Let me not be carried away by pride and be lost in the world. Amen.
