OBTAINING FAVOUR – VI [A HUMBLE AND REPENTANT HEART]

“Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that in due time he may exalt you” 1 Peter 5:6

 

Beloved, humility will turn God’s favor upon you, but pride will only bring His disfavour. The bible says that God sets himself against the proud, the boastful, the disdainful, the presumptuous. He opposes, frustrates and defeats them but to the humble He gives grace; favour and blessings. The message is simple; if God sees any of these vices in you, you get His other not-too-pleasant side, but when there is humility within you, He gives you the other side of his favour and blessings.

One of the reasons why many believers lack humility is their unrepentant heart. Remember the prodigal son. He asked his father to give him all of his inheritance. When he got them, he went to a distant land and squandered it until he started living in so much squalor, even eating the food that was meant for swine. It was at this point of his lowest degradation that he chose to have a change of heart. He repented of his foolishness and went back home to his father.

If you find yourself in the situation the prodigal son found himself, turn back to God and He will turn back to you. Humble yourself in true repentance, have a change of heart, turn away from your own ways that haven’t been working out for you and seek God’s way. For in His ways lie favour and all of your inheritance in Christ Jesus. A hardened heart will not be blessed of the Lord. A humble and contrite spirit is of great worth in God’s eyes.

Get over ‘self’ today, humble yourself before your maker and He will lift you up.

PRAISE REPORT
Healing and safe delivery
I want to thank God for granting my daughter safe delivery. One of the days when she was pregnant, she called me and told me the doctor said she has more protein in her body than required. I got the oil of gladness and sent to her to pray with. Few days later, she told me that everything was fine. She went on to deliver safely. Praise God!
