There is no quality more godlike than humility.  Nothing is more admirable, more godlike than being willing to live out true humility . . . without calling attention to it.

From Proverbs 28:25:  “An arrogant man stirs up strife, but he who trusts in the Lord will prosper.”

God waits for you to seek His counsel.  If you act without discerning His timing, you may lose the smile of divine favor.  He will not bless what He has not ordained.

From 2 Corinthians 5:6-7:  “So we are always confident; even though we know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord–for we walk by faith, not by sight.”

Christ delivered us from slavery–slavery to a “futile way of life.”  The only way for us to be emancipated from slavery was to have someone redeem us.

From Romans 6:6:  “We know that our old self was crucified with Him so that the body of sin might be destroyed, and we might no longer be enslaved to sin.”

Choose your friends carefully and wisely.  Gossips usually gravitate to gossips.  Rebels run with rebels.  You want to be wise?  Choose wise friends.

From 1 Corinthians 15:33:  “Do not be deceived:  Bad company ruins good morals.”

Remember, God lives in a realm that transcends all.  He is all-powerful.  And when God is ready to move, He moves.

From Job 19:25:  “For I know that my Redeemer lives, and that at last He will stand upon the earth.”

Do you need some good news?  We can resist the enemy!  His attacks may be directed toward the vulnerable part of your life, but the shield of faith will protect you from them.  You can resist him!

From 1 Peter 5:9:  “Resist him, steadfast in your faith, for you know your brothers and sisters in all the world are undergoing the same kinds of suffering.”

From Ephesians 6:16:  “With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one.”
