But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with The Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. 2 Peter 3:8
For a thousand years in Your sight are but as yesterday when it is past, or as a watch in the night. Psalm 90:4
God despises a haughty spirit. He would rather us be humble and gracious in all dealings. In our humbleness, God is able to lift us up. We don’t have to go around singing our own praises. We should not seek our own glory. So what if we labor for years and years with no recognition from the world. If we will go about God’s business in humility, He will make sure that our praises are sung by others. Our humbleness inspires God to be our Champion, usually when we least expect it.
And we pray:
Father, Help me to be humble in all my ways. Let me not be arrogant and full of myself, but let serve You in humility. I trust that You will raise me up according to Your Will and exalt me according to Your timeline. Amen.
