    Let no man say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God," for God can't be tempted by evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each one is tempted, when he is drawn away by his own lust, and enticed. Then the lust, when it has conceived, bears sin; and the sin, when it is full grown, brings forth dea...

    By faith Noah, being warned about things not yet seen, moved with godly fear, prepared a ship for the saving of his house, through which he condemned the world and became heir of the righteousness which is according to faith. By faith Abraham, when he was called, obeyed to go out to the place which ...

    Blessed is the man who doesn't walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the way of sinners, Nor sit in the seat of scoffers; But his delight is in Yahweh's law; On his law he meditates day and night. He will be like a tree planted by the streams of water, That brings forth its fruit in its se...

The Way to the Top

  • The greatest among you shall be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Matt 23:11 ESV

    When I showed up at a church work day event, the job that got assigned to me was scrubbing all the bathrooms: upstairs, downstairs, and down the hall. I did not remember the church having that many bathrooms. Though I was tempted to complain that they were underutilizing my skills, I sensed that the Lord had set me up. I set my heart to give those bathrooms the best cleaning job they ever had. The walls, floor, mirrors, and doors all shined when I was done with them.

    After a few weeks, a door opened up for me and the Lord used me to minister to others. C.S. Lewis once said 'Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less.' I have been on both sides of this fence. Once as a child I thought very little of myself and wished that I could have been someone else. Then later as a man, I gravitated towards thinking a lot of myself.

    God is faithful and tries to keep me balanced in this with little blessings like the one above. If you find yourself in a humbling situation, thank God that He has taken notice of you, and He may be preparing you for something bigger. The lower you go the higher He can take you! The way to the top is through humility.

    Prayer: Father, please keep me balanced. Reveal areas of pride in my life and give me the grace to get rid of it, in the name of Jesus.
