Day 4 – By Humility and the Fear of the Lord
“By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life” Proverbs 22:4
Everyone desires a satisfying life, marked with riches and honour. My prayer is that this year will be such for you, in Jesus name. The question is; ‘how do we get that kind of life?’ Today’s scripture gives us the answer – by humility and the fear of the Lord. So, determine to cooperate with God so that this year will be characterised by riches, honour and complete satisfaction.
Humility is generally defined in the dictionary as ‘the quality of not thinking that you are better than other people’. So, humility is in the heart and nobody may ‘see’ it ordinarily. In the contest of this scripture, it more so refers to your relationship with God. Simply put, ‘you do not think your idea is better than that of God’s’! Maintain a humble attitude toward every man and more importantly, toward God. No matter what you think about anything, God’s view wins – God’s word is final!
Maintain this attitude at home, at work, in church, and in the community. In addition to this, walk daily in reverential fear of God. You will be amazed how you will walk into riches, great honour before God and man, as well as a fulfilling long life.
