DAILY DEVOTION, January 9, 2022
What does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God? (Micah 6:8)
Today I want to finish up my reflections on Micah 6:8, looking at the word “humility.” To walk humbly with God is a divine requirement. It is to remember that we are not in charge of life – – – He is. It means we are to worship God and serve Him with humility. To walk humbly with God means it is to be our daily routine. We walk with Him today and tomorrow and into all our tomorrows. Pride cuts us off from God. Humility draws us near to His side.
We walk humbly with God when we go out of our way to be kind to others. We walk humbly with God when we do what we can to generate more justice in the world. We walk humbly with God when our strongest desire is to serve Him, to please Him. We walk humbly with God when we spend time praying for others. We walk humbly with God when we remember that life is not about me. It’s about Him.
Father, I pray that you will help me to see when pride rears up in me. I know that if I am ruled by pride I am headed for a fall. I want to live each day walking humbly with You. In the name of Jesus, I pray, Amen.
