Walking in Humility

Scripture: Micah 6:8 (NIV) – “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”


In a world that often elevates pride and self-promotion, the call to walk humbly with God stands in stark contrast. Micah 6:8 succinctly outlines what the Lord requires of us: to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with Him. Humility is a fundamental aspect of our relationship with God, shaping our character and how we interact with others.

Today, let us embark on a journey of walking in humility through intentional actions:

  1. Acknowledge God’s Sovereignty: Recognize God’s supreme authority and wisdom in your life. Submit your plans, desires, and actions to His will, trusting that He knows what is best for you.
  2. Serve Others Selflessly: Look for opportunities to serve those around you without seeking recognition or reward. Follow Jesus’ example of humility by putting others’ needs above your own.
  3. Cultivate a Teachable Spirit: Be open to learning and receiving correction. Seek wisdom from God’s Word and from others who can guide you in truth and love. Embrace growth and transformation.
  4. Practice Gratitude: Regularly express gratitude to God for His blessings and grace in your life. A thankful heart fosters humility by reminding you of your dependence on Him.
  5. Extend Grace and Forgiveness: Approach relationships with a heart of mercy and forgiveness. Let go of grudges and choose to extend the same grace that God has shown you.

Action Plan:

  1. Begin each day with a prayer of humility, asking God to guide your thoughts, words, and actions.
  2. Identify someone in need of help or encouragement and take a concrete step to serve them this week.
  3. Engage in a study of biblical characters who exemplified humility (e.g., Moses, David, Jesus). Reflect on their lives and apply their lessons to your own journey.
  4. Keep a gratitude journal, listing daily blessings and moments of grace. Review it regularly to cultivate a humble and thankful heart.
  5. **Reflect on any relationships where you may need to seek or offer forgiveness. Take steps to reconcile and extend grace, following the example of Christ.

As you intentionally walk in humility, may you experience the joy and peace that come from aligning your heart with God’s desires. May His grace empower you to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with Him each day. Trust that in humility, you will find true greatness and fulfillment in His kingdom.
