Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take. Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways . Over the next 24 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.
Here is day eight with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a path of humility.
Walk a Path of Humility
“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”
Micah 6:8 (NIV)
What comes to mind when you think of humility? Do you think of strength or weakness or something in between? Who do you know that you would describe as humble? What about their life makes you think that about them? Is it possible to be humble and a great leader at the same time? Why or why not? How do you think others would rate the level of humility that you exhibit in your life? Would you be willing to ask them?
God speaks through the prophet Micah and says that one of the things He requires from us is that we would walk humbly with Him. Perhaps one of the reasons He says that is because humility is necessary to do the other parts mentioned — act justly and love mercy. As you pray, ask God to help you have an accurate view of who you are in His eyes. Pray that your faithfulness in being who God has called you to be will help you live in humility. Pray that your identity in Christ would allow you to live in a way that you don’t feel the need to prove yourself to those around you. Pray that your life would be lived in such a way that people would know you as humble.
