And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Philippians 2:8

An arrogant and proud man can never listen to instructions, talk more of obeying them. There are so many things Christians and humans in general, wouldn’t have fallen prey of if only they had obeyed an instruction.

Some Christians expect God to literally come down from heaven, hold a loudspeaker to their ears, and forcefully tell them what and what not to do. God is not a town crier!

Scriptures record Him as a still small voice; He would never force or impose Himself on you. He wants you to trust in that voice, and obey to the letter. If you would tap into the full potential of the God-life, you must be obedient to the Spirit of God, and the Word of God.

Imagine that sci-fi movie, where a man just discovers he has some special powers. Most times, he gets a guide. Now, you notice that he has got to obey everything the guide says. The more he obeys his guide, the more he discovers about his powers.

The life of God you have is unlike any other. You are like that hero in the movie. But the only way you would learn how to effectively use your ‘powers’ is by being obedient to God’s Word and His Spirit.

You see, there is something unique about obedience. I have come to realize that there is always a glory at the endpoint of every instruction obeyed.

Take Moses dividing the Red Sea as a case study. If he had not obeyed, that miracle/glory would not have been revealed.

Also, our Saviour, Jesus; as Jesus obeyed, glory got bestowed upon Him. God entrusted such exaltation on Christ because humility was found in Him (Phil 2:8-10).

Humility and/in obedience is your pathway to glory.

Obedience cuts across every aspect of life. It relates the physical to the supernatural.

Obedience is the foundation of working and walking with God. But, you cannot be humble without obedience.

Humility anchors itself on obedience.

Humility is the essence through which obedience is seen in you. The key to unlocking your miracles and testimonies lies in your obedience.

When a man starts walking in obedience, his life begins to look abstract to others. I mean, look at the children of Israel; how illogical it must have been, marching, dancing and shouting around the walls of Jericho instead of fighting. It was an abstract instruction, but they stuck to it, obeyed it, and in the long run, they got the victory!

I walk in obedience; therefore, I experience a glory unimaginable. I have a humble Spirit!


1 Corinthians 15:23-25, 1 Kings 17:36, Isaiah 1:19
