A Sustainable Life

Written by Wisdom Hunters

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- December 29, 2011

“The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.” Psalm 147:6

God sustains the life of the humble. There is a heavenly determination that is dispatched to Christ’s humble servants. Because the Holy Spirit holds you up, you participate less and less in undesirable circumstances. Christ is counter to our culture for He lifts up the lowly and meek, and casts down the proud and exalted. So the humble remain faithful knowing they will receive the Almighty’s affirmation and recognition in His good timing.

We serve unseen for our Saviors’ sake, and not to be seen for our sake. It is our reverence of Holy God, humbleness in our own eyes, and gentleness toward our fellow man that sustains a life blessed by the Lord. Our Savior supports us when we apply humility over a promotion at work, projecting an image of control, or having to win arguments with antagonists. It’s choosing the low place that places us in a position to be used by God.

“For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.” Luke 14:11, NKJV

Jesus sustains your humble heart by disarming discouragement and disappointment. It is hard for humility to have hurt feelings, because its concern is for others first. A natural outflow of humility is demonstrated by service to hurting people. Humility is Christ’s conduit for healing hearts, relationships and homes. Indeed, both the giver and receiver are healed by God’s grace. The Lord sustains you in your humble service for this is no time to worry about shameful ways from the past or cowardly gossip in the present.

You press on because the One who placed the stars in the sky honors the light of His humble son, Jesus, illuminating your saved soul. Christ in you is having a humble attitude waiting to respond. Release your conflicting emotions to Him, and He will respond through you in meekness and love. Your humble heart is supported by God’s sustaining power for His purposes. He sustains your unpretentious Christian faith, by His unwavering grace.

“The LORD sends poverty and wealth; he humbles and he exalts.” I Samuel 2:7

What area of my life do I need to humble myself and trust God to sustain me?

  1. I’m the manager of JustCBD Store company (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to grow my wholesale side of business. It would be great if anybody at targetdomain share some guidance 🙂 I considered that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retailers. I was hoping if someone could recommend a trusted website where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Mailing List I am presently checking out creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal choice and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?
