The Sauce: Seek First

DAY 5 OF 21

Walking in Humility & Obedience

Today we are deciding to walk in humility. Humility is defined not as thinking less of yourself but as thinking of yourself less. Humility is taking up your God-given space, nothing more, nothing less. We live in a day and age where it seems counterintuitive to make ourselves smaller. We can sometimes become absorbed in our achievements, dreams, desires, and worries. We may feel we need to promote ourselves to stay relevant, receive credit, or even reach our purpose. The Bible instructs us, as followers of Christ, to remain humble and submitted. We are empowered through the Holy Spirit to become self-aware in our actions and fight against the temptation to walk in pride. Jesus modeled what it looked like to walk in humility by how He lived His life and served others in grace and truth. If anyone had an excuse to be prideful, it was Jesus. He was God! The Bible says in Philippians 2:6, "Though he was God, he did not think of equality with God as something to cling to." The next time you feel yourself consumed by your needs or desires, remember to remain humble by magnifying God and putting Him in His rightful place. We surrender by trusting His ways are higher; in turn, we find peace and freedom.

Application/ Reflection:

  • What is an area you tend to be prideful in?
  • How does walking in humility magnify God in your life?
  • What is one thing you can do today to submit to God by walking in humility?


Lord, I thank you for reminding me that you are always in control. I thank you that I can remain open-handed with my worries and my wants, trusting your will for my life. I repent for the ways I have walked in pride. I repent for times when I have been self-centered and missed the mark. As I humble myself today, I pray that you show me grace and favor. I thank you for the relationship I have with you. I pray that your presence and power in my life are magnified as I submit. In Jesus' name, I pray, amen.
