Humble Yourself. 


“Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:” 1 Peter‬ ‭5:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬


According to Strong’s Concordance, the Greek word for “Humble” is, ‘tapeinoō’ (G5013) which means, “to make low, bring low, to level, reduce to a plain, to have a modest opinion of one's self, devoid of all haughtiness.” 


To humble yourself does not mean to have low self esteem. To humble yourself does not mean to suffer from rejection. To humble yourself, means to submit your heart and ways to God. Follow God’s Word. Follow His Way of doing things. Let His pattern establish your path. 


Let God’s Word break you free from every insecurity, every form of pride, rejection, and every yoke of bondage. Declare what God speaks over you. Let His Word humble you. Let His Word lead you. Let His Word direct your path. Deliberately choose to follow His Word and remove anything that’s not like Him. Seek God and surrender to His Word.
