BE CLOTHED WITH HUMILITY
(#1 Daily Devotional Tract by Dr. Isaiah & Lianna Wealth)
📆 Monday, 17th July, 2017.
📜 SCRIPTURAL TEXT:
(1 Peter 5:5)
“Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.”
🔹 🔹 🔹
The proud man will not seek God, because in his own thinking that he has all it takes to get things done and has no need for God’s grace. And as we see in our opening scripture today, God resists such a man. Really? Yes, God resists the proud! Consider the strength of the opposition such a man is up against. How far can he go when it is God opposing him?
Our scriptural text today however tells us the virtue we should imbibe so that we can access the power of God – Humility. By this, the Bible is not talking about putting on a sullen look and demeanor; in fact, humility means the ability to submit to the Word of God. A humble man defers to God’s Word about everything. He looks up to God’s Word as the final authority in every area of his life rather than exalting his personal opinion. Halleluyah!
You can therefore make tremendous progress in your life today if only you would resolve to exalt God’s Word above all other, believing all that He has said about your health, business, finances and your home. Put His Word in your mouth and confess it all day long as you subdue every contrary thought or opinion. As you do this, God’s grace would be released upon you and all that seemed not to be working will begin to work. Say Amen to that!

🌏 CHRISTIAN MISSION FOCUS
Let’s pray for Pakistan 🇵🇰…
Christians are only about 2% in this nation. Majority are Muslims. Fundamentalist Islam, driven by the Taliban, is upheld by a minority, but impacts the whole nation. The escalated violence against religious minorities, shattered social cohesion and divided the country. It also disables economic development and keeps millions in poverty through the disruption it causes.
🙏🏼We are praying for a mighty revival in the land so that many will see the light.
🔹 START-UP PRAYER:
Dear Lord, help me to live by every word you have spoken, help me to disregard every contrary opinion in Jesus name.
