A few years ago, I was learning to trust God with my finances. Things were tight, but I still felt led to tithe and give generously despite my situation. Each dollar made a difference, and it was hard to learn to let go of the money I had. I had to learn that my father in heaven is my provider, not myself. I had to let go of the pride in being my provider and let him take control of my finances. It was much harder to do than I thought, and to be honest I still make mistakes in this area.
However, after some time of financial struggle, I was promoted at work and my hours per week were also doubled, meaning my income quadrupled. I was now making four times as much! It was an amazing lesson for me to learn, trusting in God for everything I need. I had to be humble and let the Holy Spirit guide my finances so that he could then bless me.
There are many verses on humility, but I just wanted to include a few of them so you can see the Bible’s perspective on humility.
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.James 4:10 NLT
True humility and fear of the LordProverbs 22:4 NLT
lead to riches, honor, and long life.
And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say,
“God opposes the proudJames 4:6 NLT
but gives grace to the humble.”
Humility results in being lifted up, and not just that, but also riches, honor, and long life. How amazing is that?!
I pray that you learn what Godly humility is and are blessed from that place. Have a great week!
