When God gave me the lyrics to the song, “Power in Humility,” I was in the midst of a long overdue lesson. My pride had just about destroyed me. I was face to face with the truth of God’s Word: “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” (‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:18‬) God revealed to me that my pride had been separating me from His presence and His guidance

My pride is sneaky.

Pride masquerades as a friend while blinding me from the truth about my desperate need for God. It makes me believe that I know all the answers—just like Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. So I stop asking God for guidance because my pride makes me believe I can live independently from Him. I no longer need His direction in my business, family, daily provision, or even to write these devotionals! I’m just fine to briefly checking in with Him at church or an occasional prayer. The rest of the time—well, I’ve got this.

“Life” is my job and I’m better at it without Him.

Sound familiar?

The truth is—unless we maintain a humble state of mind, we will be carried away in our pride and then we will be in opposition to God. The Bible says: “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6) Our pride will not just blind us it will put us on the wrong side of the battle! It will also sabotage the unimaginable success God has planned for us.

So what does humility look like?

Knowing that we don’t know everything; therefore, we intently seek God throughout the day. He becomes the most important voice in our head. His Word says, “He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way.” (Psalms 25:9) When we walk in His presence, God reveals His profound and humbling truth. Job said, “I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees you; therefore I despise myself, and repent in dust and ashes.” (Job‬ ‭42:5-6‬) Humility opens us up to spiritual truths beyond simple human intellect. Humility gives us peace because Almighty God becomes our greatest security.

In humility, we find the strength of God’s wisdom.
