HE GUIDES THE HUMBLE


Without humility, we are choosing to make decisions
and plans based on our own strengths, knowledge, and
reasonings. Because we are so limited in knowledge
and understanding of truth as a whole, we have no
hope of staying on the path of truth. We believe our
own thoughts and those of others in the same place we
are and we stumble around in the darkness. If we put
on true humility, we give up our right to follow what we
think or feel and we walk by faith and obedience after
the leading of the Lord.


Heavenly Father, we know that we cannot find you and
your truth if we do not have humility to let go of our own
ways and follow yours in obedience. We pray that you
would show us when we are not wearing the cloak of
humility so that we can get back to the business of
obeying and following you. In Jesus' name.


Read Psalm 25:9


"He guides the humble in what is right and teaches
them his way." (NIV)


"The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will
he teach his way." (KJV)

This past week I experienced a lesson in learning to humble instead of being prideful and it come in the package of being private. I never realized that pride is related to being private. Not wanting to share your heart and problem.
Thanks for sharing these words today.
IN HIM,
Karen
