The Beauty of Humility


For the Lord takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. – Psalm 149:4 NKJV

***

Ever notice that humility is a first requirement of receiving anything from God, of which the most significant is salvation? The first step being to humble ourselves to the point of admitting and confessing that we are sinners, and letting God do the rest. It may take take a while for that beauty to take hold. It may seem to come in little “Baby steps” but it will come.

Maybe a message to the church is to allow that one who has recently accepted Christ as Savior the time to beautify.
