James 1:9–Believers in humble circumstances ought to take pride in their high position.
In this verse, humble circumstances is referring to a lack of material possessions. As believers, we need to be much less concerned about the quantity of our material possessions here on earth and much more concerned about our relationship with the Creator of the Universe. We are a child of the King and as such, we have a very high position, regardless of the physical things that we have on this earth. We must come to the place where we recognize our value and measure of success is based on our relationship to the King of Kings, not the size of our bank account.
Father, it doesn’t matter whether I make a lot or a little in this world, You supply all my needs and my sense of value and success comes from knowing and trusting in You. I love You and I will take pride in the fact that no matter what things look like here, I know You and You will care for me. Thank You for the high position of being Your child!
