James 4:10 - Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.
If you are familiar with the story of Moses and the Egyptian Pharaoh, then you know this plague doesn't humble the Pharaoh. As a leader he was not able to bring himself where he needed to be and that was a state of humility.
Do you know any leaders of any countries today that are not able to humble themselves? Or do you know of any wannabe leaders that are not humble?
There, my friends, is the reason that Moses was a successful leader.
In fact, if you continue to read the following verses God called Miriam, Aaron and Moses to come outside for a meeting. In this meeting God tells Miriam and Aaron that he doesn't treat any of the other prophets like He treats Moses.
Then God wants to know why Miriam was not afraid to speak against Moses?
God then gives Miriam leprosy. Aaron begs Moses to ask God to remove the leprosy, which Moses does, but God makes Miriam endure the stigma that comes along with leprosy for a week.
Moses was the most humble man on the face of the earth then, and God protected him from his enemies, even those who were from his own family.
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time, 7 casting all your anxiety on Him, because He cares for you. NASU
If you will follow this plan it is fail proof. You will be successful. You will receive Grace from God and God will exalt you at the proper time. He exalted Moses at the proper time and He will do the same for you.
Be Humble and you will Be Successful.
Think On These:
We usually admire the other person more after we have tried to do his job.
No man can truly stand erect until he has first bent the knee to Almighty God.
Sincere humility attracts. Lack of humility subtracts. Artificial humility detracts.
