Grace to the Humble

You should start to focus less on your perceived abilities and talents. Learn to focus more on God, his mighty power and how he channels his grace through frail and fallible human beings. You need to understand that taking up responsibility to lead as the salt and light of the world is not about boasting in your strength. If you were already equipped to fix the society, what would you need God for? You must believe that God’s help is enough for you, and that the strength of the Lord works best when we acknowledge weakness.

But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.”

(James 4:6 ESV)

The true watchman understands that they will never be wise enough, rich enough or powerful enough to watch over their world. You have to decide whether you want to respond to your calling or not. David (the biblical character) was a shepherd boy when he began his hero’s journey towards becoming the King of Israel. David did not become the King of Israel because he was powerful enough politically or rich enough to do so. We can see how he transformed over time into the great King we all know him to be. God gives grace to the humble and builds them up.

You are too weak and unqualified to fix the social or economic problems that bug your mind every day. This is perfect because the strength of Christ will overshadow you. This way, you will constantly remember to give God all the glory and be truly grateful for how far you have come. It is about an increased dependency on God to transform and empower you into the kind of person that can get the job done. It is all a leap of faith. The only thing you really need to do is to submit yourself to God.
