Read James 4:5-10
Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor. James 4:10 (NLT)
Prayer is a key part of waiting on God. One of the prayers that God delights in is a prayer of humbling our hearts before God. As we consider and reflect on the fact that God is good, wise, holy, just and yet merciful, we become more receptive to what He has to say to us and more willing to follow His direction. So check your pride as you go to your knees, and come to God in humility and trust.
