On This Day: Let God Show
I wonder…How many times we strive to get noticed and to be acknowledge by other people? In our society that is the norm. We do not like to be anonymous to the whole world.
What happens when God allows that same thing you fear to come to pass? You are not noticed. No one acknowledges what you do or the effort you put. Would your frustration build up and explode before those that neglected you? Will you go above and beyond to make yourself noticed or would you sit, reflect and ask God what are You trying to teach me? This is where we get stuck. We forget that there is One that sees everything and knows everything…God.
Everything we do in our lives should be done to please Him whether people acknowledge it or not. We should not live trying to find favor in people. You will always disappoint someone. We should always look up to please Him who can reward us greater than any human being can. His recompense is far more abundantly than we can imagine.
On this day let God exalt you on His time. Even if he doesnt exalt you before men praise Him because you are pleasing Him with your obedience. The eternal life given by Christ’s sacrifice is the best reward for this obedience.
Yes, all of you be submissive to one another, and be clothed with humility, for
“God resists the proud,
But gives grace to the humble.”
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time… 1 Peter 5:5a-6
