Exercising Humility

God in diverse manners spoke in time past unto me, revealed to me that I was prideful:-  in a recent conversation, through other people's responses to me, and that I often spoke to others in a teaching posture. It was indeed it was a slap in the face. Honor is not seemly for a fool with pride.  I am wise in my own conceit. What an utter despair! So I immediately confessed my sin to God. Pride of life fills the heart of Lucifer,. “I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.” “Yet thou shall be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” Isaiah 14:14-15.  Satan spoke temptation to Eve but God saves a wretched like me by sacrificing His only beloved son at the cross. So, my heart overflew a noble theme, unceasingly giving thanks to God, who gives me His hearty counsel. He sharpened my countenance.

Later, I read a book about humility and the author said that pride is a very difficult sin to deal with! Thinking back on my own experience, I could really relate to this because over the years, I have been proud, self-righteous, looking down on people, and criticizing and judging over and over again!

But thanks be to the Lord that He revealed to us the truth about our spiritual lives because of His love for us and His desire for us to confess and repent of our sins. The book mentioned above provide tips for practicing humility: the relationship between us to God is one of unceasing and absolute dependence.  to truly realize that you are nothing, so that you can truly see that God is everything, so that you can verily deny yourself and let God be everything. And think about the humility of Jesus Christ.

Last year, Apostle Grace, the speaker of the Hanukkah special meeting, said on stage that really impressed me. He said, “God only chooses the humble, and the more humble a person is, the more he will be used by God. Brothers and sisters, I encourage you to deal with pride, practice humility, and break through to the heights of spiritual life together! Humility is death to self.  Humility is a character of God embodied in human form.

Thank You Jesus for bringing humility back to earth. We are partakers of His humility. He humbled Himself and become a man. His redemption and salvation is a communication of His own life and death, His own gracious speech, His disposition and His Spirit.. It takes humility in Christ to abide in Him, come before Him with desire to be nothing, and allow God to be all in all.  Amen.
