God with US- Dec Bible Studies- Week 2- Day 3

Scripture

Philippians 2:5-7King James Version (KJV)

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

Observation
God didn't come down and act like someone who is high and mighty. In fact he was extremely humble and even served others.

Application
Through being humble you attract GOD's blessings.  Being pride and arrogant will only lead to your downfall.  Don't let the ways of the world get into your head and make you stray from the correct path.

Prayer
Dear Lord,
teach me to be humble and help me remain true to you and the WORd.
AMEN

Scripture

John 6:38 (ESV)

For I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will but the will of him who sent me.

It is not easy being a man of GOD and following his WORD. However if you are able to do so there will be endless blessings given to you in his name. John and other disciples walk the hard path so that they could be with GOD. Are you doing the same too?

Prayer
Dear LORD,
It is your will and not mine that will be done. You are the planner of my life and I dedicate myself to your service. 
AMEN.
