Psalms 146-150 – Day 11

Psalm 147:6

The Lord sustains the humble but casts the wicked to the ground.

The Thought

This verse suggests that evil people are not humble at all, and that is normally true. Those who are under the influence of satan often give us the impression they are successful in the world view, and in control of their own lives, but they are not! They are keeping the wrong company, listening to the wrong voices and following their own desires put in their minds by the enemy of God.

The devil has not changed since the beginning when he suggested to Eve that God had not really spoken to Adam about the tree of life. Did God really say…? (Genesis 3:1).

Satan succeeded with Eve and continues today to try to put doubts in our mind, and to lie to us.

The only way to deal with him is in the way that Jesus dealt with Peter when he let his emotions get the better of him telling Jesus that what He had said would not happen! Jesus’ response was to the devil who was speaking through Peter: Get behind me satan (Matthew 16:23).

One of the best known Bible verses gives us Jesus speaking of His own humility:- Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and my burden is light (Matthew 11:28-30).


Let us acknowledge that quality of Jesus today, thanking Him for His humility in leaving Heaven and coming humbly to earth because of His love for mankind.

Spend time reading and meditating on the last few verses of Matthew 11, giving any burdens you are carrying to Him.

What does the word humble mean to you today? Can you think of someone you would describe as “humble”? Pray for them, thanking God for their humility.
