“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”. ( Philippians 3:13-14).
God Empowers the Humble
1 Peter 5:6
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
HUMBLE: Not proud or arrogant; to be moderate; to give up your independence, power and will for the Lord’s Will, and for the glory of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Humbleness is the precondition for submission.
+When we humbly submit to God we will experience what it’s like to be STRONG in the Lord and in the Power of His Might.
+Submission to God is our most powerful resistance against the enemy.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
+In our humble submission to God, we are not only resisting the devil, but we are also keeping evil and sins out of our lives, and also giving God what is needed for us to experience His Manifest Presence in our lives.
+God Elevates, Exalt, Lifts up and Promotes the Humble.
But he gives more GRACE. Therefore he says, God resists the proud, but gives GRACE unto the HUMBLE.
1 Peter 5:5
…be clothed with HUMILITY: for God resists the proud, and gives GRACE to the HUMBLE.
+God gives GRACE to the Humble.
GRACE: God’s Spiritual and Divine influence upon our heart that is reflected in our lives. God’s acceptance of us with His given benefits, favor, and gift with joy, liberality, pleasure and such like things.
2 Peter 1:2
GRACE and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord,
+May we always remain HUMBLE in all things for the glory of Christ, and may we always be found in His GRACE.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus Loves us while keeping our Faith, Trust, and Confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
