DAY THREE: HUMILITY
“God opposes the proud, but gives Grace to the humble.” (JAMES 4: 6)
ADORATION: YOU ARE GRACIOUS TO THE HUMBLE
“Yes, God does these things again and again for people. He rescues them from the grave so they may enjoy the light of life.” (JOB 33:29-30)
“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness. So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.” (2 CORINTHIANS 12: 9)
“God blesses those who are humble, for they will inherit the whole earth.”
(MATTHEW 5: 5)
“Let all that I am wait quietly before God, for my hope is in him. He alone is my rock and my salvation, my fortress where I will not be shaken. My victory and honor come from God alone. He is my refuge, a rock where no enemy can reach me. O my people, trust in him at all times. Pour out your heart to him, for God is our refuge.” (PSALM 62:5-8)
Lord, I acknowledge that often I am motivated by the urgency of this life; I speak and act without knowing Your heart first. When I forget how near You are, convict my heart and increase my confidence that You live and move within me. Let me experience Your peace empowering me to wait for Your Spirit to fill my inner man. Through being filled with Your fullness, Jesus, I will accomplish the will of God.
“For the LORD of Heaven’s Armies has a day of reckoning. He will punish the proud and mighty and bring down everything that is exalted… Human pride will be humbled, and human arrogance will be brought down. Only the LORD will be exalted on that day of judgment…” (ISAIAH 2:12, 17)
Lord, Lord, You are the judge of the earth. You will judge all human pride and destroy the wisdom of this age. Send forth light and truth to awaken hearts so that many will bow down and worship the Son. Let many acknowledge their violation of Your will and turn to worship and serve You.
• Is there an area of compromise or trusting in my abilities (pride) that should be submitted to Christ, allowing His grace to come into my life?
• What does true humility look like according to Scripture? How is that different than what people often think of as humility?
