WALKING IN HUMILITY: A GREAT
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves
unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject
one to another, and be clothed with
humility: for God resisteth the proud, and
giveth grace to the humble
(1 Peter 5:5).
Until and unless you’re submissive to the
Lord and His Word, you really can’t walk
with the Spirit of God. True humility is yielding to the
will of the Father; acting on the Word, regardless and
independent of circumstances. It’s about honouring,
regarding, and giving preference to others, because
the Word says so.
In Philippians 2:3 (AMPC), the Spirit adjures,
“Do nothing from factional motives [through
contentiousness, strife, selfishness, or for unworthy
ends] or prompted by conceit and empty arrogance.
Instead, in the true spirit of humility (lowliness of
mind) let each regard the others as better than and
superior to himself [thinking more highly of one
another than you do of yourselves].” Don’t carry your
shoulders so high against your brothers and sisters in
Christ, especially your leaders in the Lord; be humble.
Pride and unsubmissiveness are signs of demonic presence.
Satan wasn’t submissive to God; he was a
proud figure, and for his haughtiness, God kicked him
out of his place of honour. You must make up your
mind to walk in humility. It’s part of the manifestation
of the life of Christ in you.
Hebrews 13:17 says, “Obey them that have the
rule over you, and submit yourselves: for they watch
for your souls, as they that must give account, that
they may do it with joy, and not with grief: for that is
unprofitable for you.” You can talk in tongues; you
can prophesy; but if you’re not submissive and humble,
it’s all in vain.
Walking in humility is a great blessing. Use it for
your life, to guide yourself, and you’ll be amazed at the
blessings that would result. Humility brings promotion.
The Bible says God resists the proud and gives more
grace to the humble; resulting in honour, increase,
enlargement, and progress.
Blessed Father, you’re so gracious and kind. I
receive your Word today into my spirit, and relate
with everyone in meekness and humility of heart,
expressing the love of Christ, in Jesus’ Name.
