You Save the Humble

June 3, 2019


You Save the Humble

It happens over and over.     Someone is always being  a touch nasty  to another.     Then the person being picked on asks,  “Why are you being that way?”     The nasty person  just tosses his head  and puffs,  “Because I’m better than you.”

That’s an arrogantly sick way  to think,  but there are many  who have high opinions of themselves — for no valid reason.     The arrogant and haughty  have no desire  to change.     They simply want to think  they are better than others.     To convince themselves  of their self-deception,  they will make it a habit  to do nasty little things,  just to be irritating  and try to lord it over others.

But,  when all is said and done,  the proud person  will not be the winner.     In Psalm 18:27,  King David sings  to the LORD,

You save the humble    
   but bring low  those whose eyes are haughty.

There are many verses  throughout the Bible  that talk about that same truth  in different ways.     In the end,  the humble person  will be saved,  as they continue to trust  in the LORD God.     No matter how the world vaunts its self,  the humble  will not try  to be like them.     The humble  will not put their faith  in their own worth,  power,  or ability to take care of themselves.     Instead,  the humble  will be  like King David — trusting in the saving power  of God Almighty,  through Jesus Christ.

God will be the final Judge  of all — and He judges  in righteousness,  justice,  and holiness.     The humble don’t have anything  to worry about,  because they are  in God’s care.     God is the Almighty — not the arrogantly proud,  who will have their time  of judgment soon enough.

As we humbly entrust our souls  into the hands  of our almighty Creator and Redeemer,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  in love and holiness  You allow us  to go through various trials,  so that You may make that an opportunity  to strengthen us  in Your truths.     Thank You for faithfully keeping us close  to Your heart.”
