\"Humility Is A Powerful Elevator\"

"Humility Is A Powerful Elevator..."

1 Peter 5:6-10 AMP

6 "Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time,
7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].
8 Be sober [well balanced and self-disciplined], be alert and cautious at all times. That enemy of yours, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion [fiercely hungry], seeking someone to devour.
9 But resist him, be firm in your faith [against his attack—rooted, established, immovable], knowing that the same experiences of suffering are being experienced by your brothers and sisters throughout the world. [You do not suffer alone.]
10 After you have suffered for a little while, the God of all grace [who imparts His blessing and favor], who called you to His own eternal glory in Christ, will Himself complete, confirm, strengthen, and establish you [making you what you ought to be]."

The Word of God is paramount to any other narrative that has and will ever be documented or spoken.
• Paramount - more important than anything else; supreme.

Peter in John 6 was spot on in his response to Jesus' question:
• Jesus: "Will ye also go away?
• Peter: "Lord, to whom shall we go? thou hast the words of eternal life."

God's Word contains the nutrients and sustenance for both spiritual and natural success. Though there are a lot of things or people that may inspire us in life. Only God's Word through His Holy Spirit can transform us and transport us into the predestined plan of God.

• Where is God elevating our lives?
• Are we using the Elevator of Humility?
• How does 1 Peter 5:6-10 speak to me?
