Humility




Be clothed in humility


Humility (lowliness) is the state of coming to the realization that we are nothing. It is in this state that God can use us the most because we have stripped our 'selves' (read ego, title, position) from the equation and are totally open to be molded into an instrument according to God's purpose for us. In humility we become malleable, like clay to the potter.


Psalm 138:6 "For though the Lord is exalted, Yet He regards the lowly, But the haughty (arrogantly superior; supercilious) He knows from afar." 

James 4:6 “But he gives more grace. Therefore it says, “God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”

Proverbs 3:34 “Though He scoffs at the scoffers, Yet He gives grace to the afflicted (the humbled)”

Isaiah 57:15 “For thus says the high and exalted One Who lives forever, whose name is Holy,
“I dwell on a high and holy place, And also with the contrite (crushed or broken) and lowly of spirit
In order to revive the spirit of the lowly And to revive the heart of the contrite (crushed or broken).

Luke 1:48 ““For He has had regard for the humble state of His bondslave; For behold, from this time on all generations will count me blessed.”

Matthew 23:11 “But the greatest among you shall be your servant.

Proverbs 16: 18-19 “Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty (arrogantly superior ) spirit before stumbling. It is better to be humble in spirit with the lowly Than to divide the spoil with the proud.”

Proverbs 16:5 “Everyone who is arrogant in heart is an abomination to the Lord; be assured, he will not go unpunished.”

1 Peter 5:5 “You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for God is opposed to the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”



Colossians 3:12 “So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience”
 

Be blessed and be a blessing
Mark
