God Exalts the Humble

A Truth to Live – Many people seek to fill a void in their heart by spending enormous amounts of energy promoting their achievements, ideas, and opinions.  This “me first” attitude can create moments of satisfaction but they are short-lived. God’s way is better. He seeks out those whose hearts are humble, moldable and focused on Him and then blesses them.

Scripture – “The LORD highly exalted Solomon in the sight of all Israel and bestowed on him royal splendor such as no king over Israel ever had before.”

1 Chronicles 29:25

Prayer – Heavenly Father, help me to understand that the way to find peace and contentment in my own life comes through humbly submitting all that I am to Your bountiful hand and loving heart. You have a future for me that is good and filled with hope, and today I exchange my broken ideals with Your grand plans.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
