“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.”
-Christ is gentle & humble at heart & calls us to be like little children & totally submit on Him for His yoke is easy & burden is light. Through Christs’ humility & sacrifice even unto death on the cross & exultation in glory with the Father; we learn from Him & seek His divine help in the various obstacles we face in life.
Many references can be sighted for the word humility not by nature or design but for Gods’ ultimate purpose to be revealed in our lives. Humility has been defined as the fear the Lord; & it’s wages are riches, honor & life (Prov 22:4); just like wisdom & love. Most of Gods’ servants including; Moses, Abraham, David, Solomon, Mary, Ruth, Paul & many others exhibited characteristics of humility through the fear of the Lord & faith in Him; & they were exulted in different capacities. Others like Satan, king Nebuchadnezzar, Pharaoh et cetera; ruled with pride & exulted themselves but they were humbled. Such Biblical truths are exposed in reality confirming that established laws function through the action-reaction policy. Laws pose as the action followed by the fruit of given events as the reaction. Jesus in Matthew 23:12; says that “those who exalt themselves will be humbled, & those who humble themselves will be exalted.” When we humble ourselves before the Lord; we display reverence, respect & submission to Him which opens us up to many graces & establishes a firm relationship with Him, & those around us. The Holy Spirit fills us with this beautiful fruit of humility which gives us a relational edge as we continually receive direction & guidance from Him.
In Your presence Jesus we inherit fullness of joy & find rest for our souls; forgive our sins & cover us with Your precious blood. We submit our lives to You Holy Spirit asking You to fill our hearts with humility. Remain in us Holy Spirit, direct & help us in our lives, families, work, businesses, investments, relationships, marriages, spiritual growth, leadership, governance & all things. You ride forth victoriously in majesty Jesus, have mercy on us & shower us with Your divine graces for Your love for us is everlasting. Amen
