40 Prayers To Remain Humble
BIBLE TEXT: LUKE 14:11, JAMES 4:10
Humility is the direct opposite of pride. As children of God, we are expected to be humble like our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, “who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: and being found in fashion as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient unto death, even the desth of the cross.” (Philippians 2:6-8)
HUMILITY COMES BEFORE BEING LIFTED UP
Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.” (James 4: 10)
The enemy wants to keep us prideful because he knows that the Way of the Lord leads to a righteous walk with Him. When we walk in obedience with the Lord, “humbly before our God,” He lifts us up for HIS glory so that we can be used more and more for His purposes.
A humbled servant of the Lord is a serious threat to the workers of darkness.
So, if we want to truly destroy the destroyer, we must lead with humility before God.
When the Almighty God, through the Holy Spirit brings things to our attention, it is because He loves us enough to tell us the hard truths. If you are receiving a conviction of the heart, it is a kindness for you. The Lord is treating you like His child. The word of God tells us in Proverbs 3:11-12 to “despise not the chastening (discipline) of the Lord; neither be weary of His correction: for whom the Lord loves he corrects; even as a father the son in whom he delights.”
As dear children of God, it is our duty to humble ourselves before Him by recognizing our lowered position with His highly exalted one.
It is pertinent therefore to know that humility is a learned behavior. We have to consciously and consistently learn the act of humility before God our maker. It does not come naturally to us in our flesh. But, through practice and consistency, as we lower ourselves before God, emptying out all pretenses and assuming we know very little without Him, we will gradually become more and more humble as a part of our character. This is the process of sanctification. It is a process of gradual change towards holiness.
