James 1:9 “Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted…”
And the Last shall be!
No matter one’s stance at its height; it’s not greater than Humble’s expression — prostrate.
No matter our self- assessed strengths;
they’re not stronger than CHRIST’s WHO set HIS Cross — straight!
Now stand we in HIM without fail…though rejected, offcast and abused by Hell’s hate!
Though measured as lowly and poor rejoice, dear Beloved, for in GOD we’re made “Great!”
From Last then to First, no more Lost…
take pride in the LORD WHO has called us by name!
As HIServant called by name and drawn by HIS name,
Devotional: Matthew 20:16 “So the last will be first, and the first will be last.”
This marvelous transition occurs because of HIS calling, drawing and finished work! Oh what grace and mercy is ours!
So highly exalt HIM when prostate in prayer…the very NAME of JESUS WHO shall eternally lift us up from this lowly estate of Earth!
Sing, I say, “Hallelujah to the Lamb of GOD!”
Amen and amen!
