Day 8 of 21
MONDAY, JANUARY 22nd, 2024
Philippians 2:5-8, Micah 6:8, James 4:6, 1 Peter 5:5-6, Psalms 138:6
Today we are deciding to walk in humility. Humility is defined not as thinking less of yourself but as thinking of yourself less. We live in a day and age where it seems counterintuitive to make ourselves smaller. At times, we can become absorbed with our achievements, dreams, desires, and worries. We may feel that we need to promote ourselves to stay relevant, receive credit, or even reach our purpose. The Bible instructs us as followers of Christ, to remain humble and submitted. We are empowered through the Holy Spirit to become self-aware in our actions and fight against the temptation to walk in pride. Jesus modeled what it looked like to walk in humility by the way He lived His life and served others in grace and truth. If anyone had an excuse to be prideful it was Jesus. He was God! But the Bible says in Philippians 2:6, "Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to." The next time you feel yourself getting consumed by your needs or desires, remember to remain humble by magnifying God and putting Him in His rightful place. We surrender by trusting His ways are higher, in turn, we find peace and freedom. In that surrender, we experience true life change and get to live in the hope that is only found in Jesus. 
Put It Into Practice
  • What is an area you have a tendency to be prideful in?
  • What is one thing you can do today, to submit to God by walking in humility?
Lord, I thank you for reminding me that you are always in control. I thank you, that I can remain open-handed with my worries and my wants, trusting your will for my life. I repent for the ways I have walked in pride. I repent for times when I have been self-centered and missed the mark. I pray that as I humble myself today, you show me grace and favor. I thank you for the relationship I have with you. I pray that as I submit, your presence and power in my life are magnified. Amen.
