Rom. 8:19 “The entire universe is standing on tiptoe, yearning to see the unveiling of God’s glorious sons and daughters!” (TPT)
Is it flowing, how has the humility been flowing?? Over the next few days, we will be looking at another aspect of God’s heart for us. God is saying to us, let your light flow. When your light is flowing, your light is shining. Read the rest of this entry
Philip.2:9 “Because of that obedience, God exalted him and multiplied his greatness! He has now been given the greatest of all names!” (TPT).
What has God said to you? What are you doing? That is how you will know if humility is flowing, or you are cutting off the flow. In all my years of pastoring and counselling couples through marital issues, I cannot remember any party in the marriage admitting that it was his or her Read the rest of this entry
Phillip.2:7-8 “But He poured Himself out to fill a vessel brand new; a servant in form and a man indeed. The very likeness of humanity, He humbled Himself, obedient to death— a merciless death on the cross!” (Voice).
Humility flows when we defer to our peers and our subordinates. Humility flows when we give up our privileges. Humility flows when we take a lower position. Humility flows when we choose to be vulnerable. Jesus models true humility to us. Read the rest of this entry
Philip. 2:7-8 “But He poured Himself out to fill a vessel brand new; a servant in form and a man indeed. The very likeness of humanity, He humbled Himself, obedient to death— a merciless death on the cross!” (Voice)
Adopting Jesus’ model in Philippians 2, we see that firstly, humility flows when we defer to our peers and our subordinates. Secondly, humility flows when give up our privileges. Thirdly, Humility Flows When We Take A Lower Position. Read the rest of this entry
Philip. 2:4-5 “Get beyond yourselves and protecting your own interests; be sincere, and secure your neighbours’ interests first. In other words, adopt the mind-set of Jesus the Anointed. Live with His attitude in your hearts…” (Voice).
Philip. 2:3-4 “Don’t be selfish; don’t try to impress others. Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” God says, you and I are to think of other people as better than we are and this is a Read the rest of this entry
Lu.22:27 “Who is more important, the one who sits at the table or the one who serves? The one who sits at the table, of course. But not here! For I am among you as one who serves.” (emphasis added).
Even among the disciples Jesus had to deal with the matter of humility. Lu.22:24 -26 “Then they began to argue among themselves about who would be the greatest among them. Jesus told them, “In this world the kings and great men lord it over their people, yet they are called ‘friends of the people.’ But among you it will be different. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant.” Read the rest of this entry
I humble myself because God resists the proud. I humble myself because God gives grace to the humble. Humble yourself because it is the key to your lifting. Humble yourself because it is the key to your promotion. Read the rest of this entry
James 4:10 “Lay yourself bare, facedown to the ground, in humility before the Lord; and He will lift your head so you can stand tall.” [Voice].
Being humble is non-negotiable for a child of God. God does not overlook it. If you are going to have and sustain a walk with God, then you need to know that God does not overlook matters of humility. If you miss the Word, you will not miss the rod. Read the rest of this entry
James 4:10 “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up in honor.” (emphasis added).
For the next couple of days, we are going to be looking at an aspect of God’s heart for us. And when we let this aspect of God’s heart flow in us and flow through us, nothing will be impossible for us. Read the rest of this entry
1 Chr.13:14 “The ark of God remained with the family of Obed-Edom in his house for three months, and the Lord blessed his household and everything he had.’” (NIV)
2 Sam.6:20 “On David’s return, he wanted to bestow good favour on his household, but Michal, the daughter of Saul, came out to meet him… (sarcastically) The king has distinguished himself today in front of his servants’ maids. He revealed quite a lot, just as the lowest of the low might expose himself” (VOICE). Stop and picture this for a moment. You are coming from having an amazing time of worship and fellowship with God. You are charged up and taking that atmosphere to your home and then the first thing that greets you is sarcasm from the very people you are going to bless. How would you respond? David did not say, ‘You this woman, you are going to see my red eye today!’ I am sure that Michal’s attitude was not strange to David because he was not shocked. David did not let her sarcasm stop him from bestowing good favour on his household.
Your walk with God must affect your household. If you have a walk with God that is not affecting your family, something is wrong with that. If you have a walk with God that is not impacting your children positively, something is definitely wrong with that. Unfortunately, a lot of Pastor’s children do not want to hear anything about church or have anything to do with God. And it because their parents who are Pastors did not take the same attitude into their homes. Yet, we are also grateful for all of the Pastor’s children who are in church, actively engaging in true worship. David returned home after sacrificing to God and blessing God’s people, to bless his household. God expects us, as true worshippers, to take it back home and be consistent. Bless your home, bless your sons and daughters. Be the priest; take God’s Word to your household, take God’s blessings to your family. Even if they despise you, take it to them anyway. You have a duty to take God’s Word and blessings to your household. Even if they do not respect the prophet, still take it to them because that is your calling.
True worship happens When I Humble Myself Before God In Celebration. 2 Sam.6:20 “When David returned home to bless his household, Michal daughter of Saul came out to meet him and said, ‘How the king of Israel has distinguished himself today, disrobing in the sight of the slave girls of his servants as any vulgar fellow would!’ (NIV, emphasis added). Kings have robes, royal garments. David did not rush home to change, he disrobed in front of everybody. It can even be offensive, obviously to his wife, because that is the natural response. However, sometimes you need to be spiritual and ignore what is supposed to be a natural response. David disrobed publicly and wore an ephod as in the inserted image.
Prayer: Father, I pray that my walk with You and my work for You will impact my entire camp positively for the Kingdom of God, in Jesus Name. Amen!
