We just added “President” by nobigdyl. to Project 88.7!
In “President” nobigdyl. raps about how grateful he is for the life he has and how amazing that makes him feel. But he also talks about staying faithful to God even with the success he’s experienced in life. Often when people experience success they become prideful. But we learn from the Bible, and what nobigdyl. says in this song, that the appropriate response to success and God’s blessing in our lives is gratitude, humility, and faithfulness to God. It’s similar to what David, a biblical songwriter, said about God’s blessing in his life: “Let all that I am praise the Lord; may I never forget the good things he does for me.” (Psalm 103:2)
Every good gift we have comes to us from God, and God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. So when God allows you to be successful at something or you experience His blessing in your life through your relationships, finances, job, ministry or any other area, remain humble, always give thanks to God, and do your best to use what God has given you to help others too, not just yourself.
“Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” (James 1:17 NLT)
“And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6 NLT)
