Daily Walk with the Holy Spirit

Do you know true humility?

"Learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly in heart." Matthew 11:29

How closely are you following in the footsteps of the Master?

What do you think the hardest lesson in life to learn is?

Meekness and humility are probably one of life's lessons to learn.

If we are to shine for God, we first must walk in humility.

When we critize someone we are not showing humility but pride in action.

When we are proud will seperate us from God.

When we flattering yourself that you are walking as close to God as humanly possible, you are not using humility.

Flattering is self deception.

Flattering is only thinking of ourselves and not what God's heart is.

When we speak of how humble we are we have essentially lost that humble spirit.

We have stepped out of position for that gift.

When a man is proud and lifted up he will be washed and barren of all fruit.

You see, it is when we get down low and humble ourselves that God will use us for His glory.

God will bring blessings to him.

We are not called to be impressive but to let Him be effective!

We are not to boast about what we have done, but about what God has done!

When we are proud, self serving, arrogant we are putting the "I" in the picture and leaving God out.

There must not be any "I" in the picture.

When we are humble there will not be any I, but what will you have me to do, Lord.

John the Baptist said it best...

"He must increase, but I must decrease." John 3:30

We are to be nobody.

We are to be heard and not seen.

We are to be His voice.

We are called to bear witness of His light.

We only reflect His glory, we don't produce it.

We are called to keep our flesh out of the way so others can see that Light.

Jesus is that Light!

When people look at you are they seeing the reflection of His glorious Light?

We must learn to be humble.

We need to lower ourselves just as our Lord and Savior did.

"But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that He by the grace of God should taste death for everyman." Hebrews 2:9

We need to let God do a work in our heart that is effective not just impressionable.

When we learn humility, we are on the way to victory.

You have nothing to lose when you submit to the Will of God for your life!

"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you." James 4:7

"Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: I Peter 5:6

"For thus saith the High and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with Him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones." Isaiah 57:15
