PARAPHRASE IT: James 4:10 [NIV] Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.
Bowing down before the crown, He sets me up above the clouds.
APPLYING THIS VERSE TO MY LIFE:
The more I submit to Jesus, the more like Him I become.
It’s crazy that we need a verse in the Bible that tells us to humble ourselves before You. Believing in You that should be our like “default” mode. Here’s what the verse doesn’t say, “Don’t bother with God and He’ll leave you alone” Truth be told you love us enough to allow us to make our own choices. And when we pick JESUS – we get picked up! HELP ME PICK RIGHT TODAY – JESUS! – and be lifted up!
