“(Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)”
-Humility in Hebrew is written as anavah which means to be gentle or meek. We find numerous references of humility in the Bible including & not limited to the following; Humility & meekness are often inseparable ( 2 Col 10:1 ; Eph 4:2 ; Col 3:12 ), God our Father is humble to help the poor & needy (Ps 113:4-9; 138:6-7) & calls us to generosity, humility is necessary to enter the kingdom of God (Mat 18:1-4 ) & to be great in it (Mat 20:26-27 ; Mk 10:43-44 ), it’s a sign of selflessness (Mat 10:38-39 ; Luke 9:23-25 ), It is required in prayer ( 2 Chro 7:14 ; Dan 6:10 ; 9:3-20 ), It is required when fasting ( Lev 16:29-32 ; 23:27-32 ; Ezra 8:21 Ezra 8:23 ; Ps 35:13 ; Dan 10:1-3 Dan 10:12), God denounces false humility (Col 2:18; 2:23). Humility is the prerequisite for blessings (Ps 37:11 ; Mat 5:5 ) & honor ( Prov 15:33 ; 18:12 ; 22:4 ; 29:23 ). It is associated with the fear of God (Ps 25:9; 25:12-14 ; Prov 15:33 ), & is a gateway to eternal life ( Mat 5:3 ; 18:1-4). It is the key to wealth & life ( Prov 22:4 ); God gives grace to the humble but resists the proud ( Prov 3:34 ; Jam 4:6 ; 1 Pet 5:5 ), God often delivers people who humble themselves ( 2 Chron 32:24-26 ; 34:26-28 ) & exults the humble ( Mat 23:12 ; Lk 1:52 ; 14:11 ; 18:14 ; Jam 4:10 ). Humility is the foremost test of a truly great person or leader ( Lk 22:24-27 ). Jesus is meek & humble at heart (Mat 11:29), He humbled Himself as a servant (John 13:1-16 ) & came to serve ( Mat 20:28 ; Mk 10:45 ; Lk 22:27 ). Christs’ humility was displayed even unto death ( Isa 53:7-8 ; Acts 8:32-33 ) in obedience to the Father ( Phil 2:5-8 ), who is highly exalted (Phil 2:9-11). We ought to emulate Christ’ example of humility (Mat 11:28-30 ; 2 Col 10:1 ).
-With humility comes obedience & servant-hood, Moses was in the right spiritual attitude for his assignments. God tells us that; if one wants to be great, he/she must be a servant to all, Moses was the meekest & God used him in a special way to deliver the Israelites from bondage in Egypt, gave him the privilege to receive & deliver the ten commandments, to talk to God face to face & perform many signs. God requires us to bear humility by acting justly, love mercifully & to walk humbly with Him (Micah 6:8).
We thank You Father for the grace to see this new day in great health. We know that some are sick & weak, we believe that by Your stripes they are healed Jesus. Thank Your for the graces & provision that You have always provided, You have given us food, clothes, a place to sleep, & many other gifts, we can only say thank You our Faithful Father. We humbly ask You Lord to provide for all those who are struggling to meet their needs. Be merciful to all the candidates who are scheduled to start their exams today, be with them Lord during this critical time & grant them success. We also ask You Holy Spirit to give us the fruit of humility so that we may act justly, love mercifully & walk humbly with You, all the days of our lives. Amen
