Humility comes before Honour

Sis. Stella Dhinakaran

The Bible says, “Today I will begin to exalt you in the eyes of all Israel, so they may know that I am with you as I was with Moses” (Joshua 3:7). This is a wonderful promise of God given to Joshua.  Joshua lived an exemplary life in the sight of God. He stood by Moses helping him to accomplish what the Lord wanted him to do. That is why Joshua received the impeccable blessing, A faithful person will be richly blessed... “(Proverbs 28: 20). Similarly, Deuteronomy 28:1 says, “If you fully obey the Lord your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the Lord your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.”   
A young man who loved Christ lived a righteous and honourable life at his work place. He possessed the qualities of Christ. Looking at his commitment to work and his hardworking attributes, his higher official would always exasperate him to put him down.  In the same work place this young man wrote a department exam for a higher position and he was victoriously promoted to a higher post in a very young age. But his official who wished evil for him achieved nothing in that office.
Yes my dear children of God, Wisdom's instruction is to fear the LORD, and humility comes before honor” (Proverbs 15:33). So, if we fear the Lord by living righteously in truth and by obeying His commandments, we too can surely receive these blessing. It is very necessary to read the word of God and know His commandments. It is God’s divine will for us to understand His commandments and to follow them.  We also need to wait upon Him to receive instructions for the way in which we should go. When we do so, God will honour us among all nations. We can enjoy the benefits of God as we taste it each day.
Prayer:
 Loving heavenly Father, I praise You and thank You for you are the Lord who is with us and pour out your blessing in abundance.  Lord, show me Your ways so that I can walk in it and inherit Your blessings. Help me to lead a righteous and exemplary life as Joshua lived.  I commit myself into Your mighty hands. Bless this day for me. In Jesus’ name I ask this and pray to you O Lord, Amen.
