1 Peter 5:6 Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you,

What does it mean to humble ourselves? When we humble ourselves before God, we’re giving Him our will, our plans, our ideas, and our desires for His glory. It’s not about us anymore. It’s about His will.

We may think our lives should go in one direction but if God calls us to another direction, even if it’s uncertain, we successfully humble ourselves when we submit to His will. We may think we’re reaching our goal of success when we see a certain amount of money in our bank account, but if God instructs us to give half of it away, we successfully humble ourselves when we obey.

Humbling ourselves seems illogical or like we’re taking a step backwards however, the great thing about humbling ourselves is God’s guarantee of exaltation. God promises to lift us up. No matter how foolish God’s request may seem, when we humble and obey, we’ll eventually (in due time) be in a better position than we thought we would be. Our life will be better, we’ll impact more people, and we’ll advance the Kingdom of God.

Don’t despise the humbling experience because humbling ourselves causes elevation.
