Preach My Gospel states that “humility is willingness to submit to the will of the Lord[,] … gratitude for His blessings and acknowledgment of your constant need for His divine help.” How does this definition and the quote below broaden your view of this verse and its application to your life?
10 Be thou humble; and the Lord thy God shall lead thee by the hand, and give thee answer to thy prayers.
I believe…that only those who are humble are able to acknowledge and understand the Lord’s answers to their prayers. The humble are teachable, recognizing how dependent they are on God and desiring to be subject to His will. The humble are meek and have the ability to influence others to be the same. God’s promise to the humble is that He will lead them by the hand. I truly believe that we will avoid detours and sadness in our lives as long as we walk hand in hand with the Lord.
