The LORD has chosen Zion, He has desired it for His dwelling. Psalm 132:13

Humble yourselves!

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up.” James 4:10
Having been born again of the Spirit, we are called to trust in the Lord with all our heart, and we also have a biblical responsibility to walk in His ways and humble ourselves before His face.
In 2 Chronicles, we read that humbling oneself before God is linked with earnest prayer, seeking God’s face, and turning from every wicked way, for humbling oneself before the Lord, enables the grace of God to flow freely into our hearts and breathes spiritual revival into our soul.
When one recognizes who they are apart from the Lord, the only response that can come in the presence of God is humility. It is a sense of unworthiness because of who God is and who each person is.
The one who truly humbles himself in the sight of God is the one who makes himself lowly of heart before the Lord, by admitting the greatness of our God and acknowledging His magnificent majesty. It is true confession that without the Lord we can do nothing. It is trusting Him in all things and relying on Him to carry out the good work that He has prepared for us to do in His power and for His ultimate glory.
Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank You and praise you for you being our creator –  humbled yourself, came to earth and died for the entire humanity to save us and give us eternal life.  Lord, please help me to humble myself before you at all times and Keep my heart pure before You and use me as a channel of Your goodness and grace to others. This I ask in Jesus’ name, AMEN.
