“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you…” 1 Peter 5:6
Acronyms help me remember things that I should remember– but that I sometimes too easily forget. Being humble, or having a humble-mind, as Scripture commands the believer to have (1 Peter 3:8), is one of those things that I should remember how to do, but can often forget how to do. So, I asked the LORD to give me an acronym for the word ‘humble’, and this is what He gave me.
HOPE in God.
UNDERSTAND that God is completely in control.
MEEKLY cast your anxiety upon the Lord.
BELIEVE that God is working for your good and His glory.
LOWER yourself before God and wait for Him to-
EXALT you in due time.
