Hello; good people of God. Welcome to another episode of our daily bible study. Today’s topic is; “Stay humble, do not let success get to your head.
In the previous episode of our daily bible nugget, we discussed the topic that says, learn to seek advice when necessary. We got the insight from what happened between pharaoh and his officials. When Pharaoh’s officials noticed that the plagues have crippled Egypt, they walked up to pharaoh and talk to him. They demanded that he frees the Israelites, for fear that the plagues might ruin Egypt entirely.
Pharaoh, though dissatisfied with their advice, he called Moses and Aaron and asked them to go, but with the condition that only the men should go. Moses and Aaron rejected the condition and they were driven out of the meeting.
In that event, we learnt that, though Pharaoh was the one confronting Moses and Aaron, he was not seeing that Egypt was at the verge of collapse. It was his officials, who could see clear what was happening, and they advised him. But unfortunately, he did not genuinely heed their advice, Egypt finally got ruined. You can watch the video of that episode of our daily bible study, it is titled, learn to seek advice when necessary.
In today’s episode, we will discuss the bible insight titled, stay humble, do not let success get into your head.
Moses ran from Egypt to Midian. Over there in Midian, he got a job as a shepherd. He was in the bush one day, and God called him and assigned him the mission of going unto Pharaoh in Egypt and tell him to free the Israelites.
At first, Moses was scared of the mission; he was scared of confronting Pharaoh. However, he embarked on the journey, and with the help of his elder brother Aaron and God’s divine power, they confronted pharaoh. As Moses kept encountering and confronting pharaoh, he continued building self-confidence. It got to a point that Moses no longer feared the presence of Pharaoh. He talked to Pharaoh with authority and pharaoh couldn’t do anything. In one of the encounters Moses had with pharaoh, Pharaoh pleaded with Moses to make the hail stop. Moses replied him saying, when I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands in prayer to the Lord and the hail will stop and there will be no more hail, so you may know that the Earth is the Lord’s.
We can understand from here that, Moses’ fame has grown. he could talk to pharaoh without fidgeting and with authority.
Nevertheless, one thing stands out clear, in all of Moses’ fame, he never failed to glorify God. In everything, he stayed humble. Even when his fame has grown, he will always say; “I will spread my hands in prayer to the Lord.” Moses always recognized God, that was the secret of his success. In all his encounter with Pharaoh, he recorded success, but he in turn humbled himself and gave the glory to God. He did not allow his success to get to his head.
Child of God, this is a lesson to all of us. No matter the level of success you think you have attained, never let it get into your head, do not forget where and how you started.
Always stay humble and do not let your success get to your head. Be like Moses in humility and God will give you more success.
May God grant us the ability to stay humble and calm even when we have achieved immense success. Amen.
