So, instead of selfishness, there is God’s will as our priority. Instead of what I want it’s what He wants. Instead of being addicted to sin, there’s freedom from sin. Free now to obey God’s will. What a delicious freedom that is for the first time in your life to look about you and say, “Thank God, I can serve Him…”
Humbling ourselves means turning over each area of our life to God as it comes. God takes all that we are and weaves into us His own will and purposes. God’s timing in revealing His will for you is perfect.
I can guarantee you that God, who is still on the throne, absolutely sovereign, has plans for you that include glorifying Him through the opposition you may face and the troubles that you may experience.
