WALKING IN HUMILITY: A GREAT BLESSING

WALKING IN HUMILITY: A GREAT 
BLESSING
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 
(1 Peter 5:5). 
Until  and  unless  you’re  submissive  to  the 
Lord  and  His  Word,  you  really  can’t  walk 
with the Spirit of God. True humility is yielding to the 
will of the Father; acting on the Word, regardless and 
independent of circumstances. It’s about honouring, 
regarding,  and  giving  preference  to  others,  because 
the Word says so. 
In  Philippians  2:3  (AMPC),  the  Spirit  adjures, 
“Do  nothing  from  factional  motives  [through 
contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy 
ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance. 
Instead,  in  the  true  spirit  of  humility  (lowliness  of 
mind) let each regard the others as better than and 
superior  to  himself  [thinking  more  highly  of  one 
another than you do of yourselves].”  Don’t carry your 
shoulders so high against your brothers and sisters in 
Christ, especially your leaders in the Lord; be humble. 
Be submissive. 
Pride and unsubmissiveness are signs of demonic presence. 
Satan wasn’t submissive to God; he was a 
proud figure, and for his haughtiness, God kicked him 
out of his place of honour. You must make up your 
mind to walk in humility. It’s part of the manifestation 
of the life of Christ in you. 
Hebrews 13:17 says, “Obey them that have the 
rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch 
for your souls, as they that must give account, that 
they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is 
unprofitable for you.”  You can talk in tongues; you 
can prophesy; but if you’re not submissive and humble, 
it’s all in vain. 
Walking in humility is a great blessing. Use it for 
your life, to guide yourself, and you’ll be amazed at the 
blessings that would result. Humility brings promotion. 
The Bible says God resists the proud and gives more 
grace  to  the  humble;  resulting  in  honour,  increase, 
enlargement, and progress. 
PRAYER
Blessed  Father,  you’re  so  gracious  and  kind.  I 
receive your Word today into my spirit, and relate 
with  everyone  in  meekness  and  humility  of  heart, 
expressing  the  love  of  Christ,  in  Jesus’  Name. 
Amen.
