An Affirmation based on James 4:10
Have you felt disheartened or defeated lately? Do you need to be uplifted? Maybe you’re having one of those “down” days today. Or perhaps you’re struggling with a situation and pride has gotten the better of you. James 4:10 is a scripture with promise that offers hope and encouragement. It assures us that, if we humble ourselves before the Lord, He will lift us up! I don’t know about you, but that is a promise and affirmation I need to claim today!
The Bible teaches us a great deal about God’s awesome power, as well as His character and divine nature. From studying the Scriptures, we learn that God is pleased and moves on behalf of those who submit to His will. Yet, He resists the proud. Often, we prefer to do things our way, instead of seeking God’s will for our lives. Yet, if we make it a practice to seek the will of God first, our actions and choices begin to line up with His purpose for our lives. And we, in turn, experience His blessing.
If circumstances have you needing a lift, turn to your Heavenly Father today and seek His wisdom and help. If there is pride or other sin in your life, confess it to God with a humble spirit and ask His forgiveness. He will honor your obedience, prosper you, and just as His Word promises, He will lift you up!
May the Lord bless you richly today!
In Christ’s Love,
