ACHIEVE GREATNESS DEVOTIONAL – YEMI DAVIDS: Re-Humility & Stewardship
If they obey and serve Him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. – Job 36:11
Obedience comes before service. It is what actually drives us to acknowledge God’s instruction to serve Him and yield to it. The very idea of obedience brings to mind the principle of Humility. The proud at heart find it difficult not only to serve God but to obey Him. Pride goes before a fall just as humility goes before lifting.
Our classic model is Jesus Christ in Philippians 2:5-11 as He gives us a clear picture of the relationship between humility, obedience, service and true lifting. Though He was equal with God, he stooped low enough in obedience to God and in complete humility. As a result of this, “… God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name. – Philippians 2:9
It, therefore, follows that if one is too big to serve then he just might be too big to be lifted by God. Overestimation of self is a great hindrance to divine lifting which comes on the platform of service because “God resists the proud….” and who can help anyone whom God is resisting.
Nothing should be too menial for us to do for God. Nothing should get in the way of our serving Him; not our education, achievements, wealth, not even our spirituality.
We should take a deep plunge into the seeming foolishness of service and watch God decorate our lives beyond description.
Remember, God has chosen the foolish things of this world to confound the wise. (1Cor 1:27).
Bending to serve in spite of our achievements might seem foolish to the carnal mind but it is in that bending that our destiny lifting & honor will be perfected.
Further Reading: Job 36:11, Phil 2:5-11, Pro 15:33
Father, I choose to serve you whatever the costs; whatever the implication. I lay down my life, qualifications, achievements, all that I am…Take all! Use them for your glory, Lord.
