James 4:10 – Great in the Eyes of God

James 4:10
10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.

-Paul the Apostle, Matthew Henry, Charles Spurgeon.  Throughout history there have been those individuals who have had a profound and lasting impact on the Lord’s work.  What makes them so special?  Did they go to some super-elite college to get a degree in Biblical Studies?  Were they born with a prophet gene that allows them to better understand God’s Word?  No, the only thing unique about them was that they showed great humility and diligence before the Lord and the Lord was able to use their lives in great and mighty ways.  Any one of us could be the next great man or woman of God whose work is remembered for generations; not because we need the glory, but because the Lord’s work demands such laborers.
