He will beautify the humble

For the LORD takes pleasure in His people; He will beautify the humble with salvation. Let the saints be joyful in glory; Let them sing aloud on their beds. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand,  - Psalm 149:4-6

God always blesses humility. The world exalts power and glory and fame and wealth and all those things. We know a person is great if they succeed and are famous for their acting skills or politics or their ability to hit or kick or carry a ball or a puck or whatever. These are often the ‘beautiful people’ of our world and are featured on stage and screen and print and on websites.

But God’s beauty standard is different. God loves His people and turns the worldly despised notion of humility into true beauty.

Those who humble themselves before God, realise their hopelessness without Him, confess their sins and call on Him for forgiveness will find salvation in Him.

We need not compete with the world and what they call important. We need to strive for godly humility and let Him give us that the beauty that comes with godly humility.
