God Resist The Proud, But Gives Grace Unto The Humble.
…God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. James 4:6
Rejoicing is a form of humility.
In II Samuel 6, the Ark of the Covenant was coming into Jerusalem. The Bible says when the ark came into the city, King David danced before the Lord with all of his might. The scripture says he threw off his royal robe and danced in his under clothes because of the glory that was coming back! David loved to be in the presence of God!
After he danced before the Lord, David fed the entire nation. When he went to bless his household, his wife told him that he looked like a fool. She despised him in her heart because of his response to the presence of God. David responded to her by saying, “I will yet be more vile than this. I will humble myself in the sight of the people and I will lower myself in my own sight,” verse 22.
When David was rejoicing, it was a form of humility. If you are more concerned with what people think about you than what God thinks about you, you will never walk in victory. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up!
I will rejoice in the Lord and humble myself before Him because He resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
