Tag Archive: God’s glory


“And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted” (Matthew 23:12). This Scripture speaks for itself. To be abased means to humble or bring down to a lower status. To be exalted means to raise or elevate to a higher status.

If you humble yourself, then the Lord will elevate you, by blessing you. On the other hand, if you are too exalted, then you will be brought down or humbled to a lower status. God needs a humble heart to work with, as He does not appreciate a proud and boastful person.

If you’re abundantly blessed, God does not want you to boast about it and try to draw attention to yourself. He instead wants to get His glory by your sincere testimony about how He has brought you through the most devastating time of your life. I want to share this inspirational song with you:

A lot of folks want to feel important, highly regarded and praised, and so they want people to address them by their title, they show off their flashy cars, their big houses, and their money. However, the Scripture highlights that, “God resists the proud, but gives grace unto the humble” (James 4:6).  If He blesses you, He wants you to be a blessing to others, instead of a boaster to others. Don’t get it twisted; He wants you to be happy, appreciative and thankful, yet humble.

I once heard of a young man who was very friendly. He used to walk pass his neighbors everyday and say hello to all of them. However, one day he got a brand new car, and since then, he didn’t even offer his neighbors a ride, or say hello again. One day while driving, he had an accident and lost his car. He was now back to his old method of transportation – his feet.

I am not sure how this young man felt after he was reverted to his old status. But one thing I have learned; it always pays to be humble, because in life, nothing is guaranteed. You can go right back to square one in a split second. In light of this, when you humble yourself before the Lord, and He sees your humbleness, He will begin to pour out His blessings upon your life.

God bless you all!

Has Your Joy Been Stolen?

Stolen Joy

In John 10:10 you are warned that the thief comes to steal, kill, and to destroy; but Jesus came that you might have life more abundantly. In this scripture, Satan is being referred to as the thief who steals your joy, in order for you to live a life of misery and defeat.

If you have been through a tough year in 2013 and have been robbed of things that caused you to lose your joy, then 2014 is the year to reclaim what the devil has stolen from you.

Now is not the time to throw in the towel and play a pity party.  It’s time to refocus your faith and trust in the Lord, so that He can restore you with unspeakable joy. You are encouraged in Psalms 30:5 that weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. So dry your tears, arise and shine; for your light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! (Isaiah 60:1)

“For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us” (Romans 8:18 KJV).
