We pray and ask God for a humble heart. We pray and ask God for humility, and we still struggle to be humble. Why?
Humility is a choice.
God tells us to humble ourselves under His mighty right hand.
When you have been wronged by someone, you can choose to humble yourself before God who says, “Forgive,” or humble yourself before the enemy who says, “Get mad, stay mad, get even.”
Humbling ourselves is more than swallowing our pride, it is submitting to God.
Something you may have never thought of is when we choose to believe anything contrary to the truth in God’s Word, we have submitted ourselves to the lies of the enemy rather than to God.
For instance, God says you are forgiven. The enemy reminds you of your sin and you begin to doubt God. You have a choice. Humble yourself to the voice of God, or the voice of the enemy who seeks to kill, steal, and destroy your relationship with God.
Humility is our response to who God is and what He has said to us in His Word.
Claim and foster your humble heart by choosing to listen and obey the Word of God and the voice of God.
Great is God’s Faithfulness 💚 Deb
