GOD'S WORD TODAY

Matthew 23:11

For whoever makes himself great shall be humbled, and whoever humbles himself shall be made great.

---- Mine, there is no great virtue pleasing to My father and to Me than the virtue of humility. True humility is to see yourself as you are and in context of who God is.Every thing good that you do, every talent you posses is given to you from above. Of yourself you are nothing, you know this and yet there are times when you are full of pride, you are self righteous, you have a tendency sometimes to think that because you have been in a real relationship with Me for some years now, it somehow gives you an edge. This is absolutely not true. Permit Me to judge for only I am appointed to be the righteous Judge by My Father. 

Take care  ---- Mine, that you do fall into the subtle traps set for you by the enemy. Pray constantly, and ask the Holy Spirit to help you to be humble. Give Him the authority and the responsibility to keep you in check, and to warn you and draw your attention when you fail to exercise this virtue, so you will fall less frequently into this deadly snare.

GOD'S WORD TODAY

Mark 9:34

If someone wants to be first, let him be last of all
and servant of all. 

 ---- Mine,be still, quiet your senses,  become aware of My Presence,  open the ears of your heart and listen; pay heed to My Word to you today it is not what the world will tell you but this is what I,Your God, desire you to know, to understand and to live. Only  those who desire to live  and walk in the light of My Word will understand the value of genuine humility. In the world every one clamors to be first not so among the children of God. God turns everything on its head and teaches that the first is last, and the last first. It is not easy to practice the virtue of being little, small, insignificant, to see yourself as you are.  You know your true self; the person no one else sees but I, God. This is why if you are honest with yourself you will be humble for you will know, that if you have any virtue, it is because it has been given you through grace. 

Of yourself you can do nothing. To serve is to love the more humble the service, the greater the capacity to love and to grow in love. In the Kingdom the first will be last, and the least and last will be first. Humility is the true coin with which you receive strength for the journey from this life to the next.
