“Obey the Lord, be humble, and you will get riches, honor, and a long life” (PV 22:4)
This is God’s way, always perfect! God never makes mistakes!
If you are His child, you must first suffer pain, rejection and persecution. Ask other saints older than you. They will confirm that God is always faithful to His methods of blessing. God humbles you before He promotes and rewards you.
To become humble is never easy. It is the deep work of the Cross, drying off the lusts of the flesh and killing the pride or life.
God alone knows how long that ‘surgery’ must go on. Once God is satisfied with your spiritual progress, once He sees humility’s bloom in the desert, He will immediately change your circumstances and rewards you openly. He will give you your heart’s desires and even more than that! This is your harvest: riches, honor and long life! And even more…So, trust God to the end!
