Wednesday Word

Over the past few months I’ve been looking for a good devotion or Bible Study to dive into. I’ve been praying to our Heavenly Father to guide me to the one he wants me to start.  While at a Joytime Ministries conference, Joy Greene was speaking on being Humble but/and Bold.  That started hitting my heart hard.  Recently at church Pastor Phillip gave a sermon about being humble.  OK God I see what you’re telling me now, so “Humble” it is.  Being humble is a hard pill to swallow and your pride can get in the way.  Why is it so difficult to be humble in the world today?  Our Heavenly Father calls us to be yet we still have too much pride.

I came across an article by Lawrence Wilson –“How to Be Humble- 7 Disciplines You Can Practice Almost Every Day”. http://www.lawrencewilson.com/how-to-be-humble/. In an extremely condensed version of his article here are seven things you can do every day to practice humility: (I encourage you to read the full article)

  1. Avoid taking credit
  2. Praise others
  3. Help others succeed
  4. Admit your mistakes
  5. Learn from others
  6. Go Last
  7. Serve Someone

In the words of Wilson, “The only way to be humble is to be humbled. Though that is difficult to accept, you can do it. Andrew Murray wrote, “The danger of pride is greater and nearer than we think, and the grace for humility too.””

Lastly I leave you with some scripture for you meditate on:

James 4:10 ~ “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”

1 Peter 3:8 ~ “Finally, all of you, be like-minded, be sympathetic, love one another be compassionate and humble.”

Proverbs 22:4 ~ “Humility is the fear of the Lord; Its wages are riches and honor and life.”
