What helps us stay humble.

“Humble yourselves [with an attitude of repentance and insignificance] in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you [He will lift you up, He will give you purpose]” James 4:10, Amplified Bible.

Whenever I go visit the ocean, I am reminded of how small I am in comparison to the vast ocean I see before me. God’s creation humbles me. This is one reason the Lord wants us to spend time with Him daily. It is because it helps us stay humble. Every moment we spend in the presence of an almighty God, we are reminded of who we are in comparison to Him. Seeing His glory and His goodness will humble us. Seeing His hand on our lives and how far He has brought us will humble us. And when we are humbled, we receive loads and loads of grace and mercy.

However, when we don’t visit with Him in prayer, that’s when we find ourselves thinking of ourselves more highly than we ought to think. We find ourselves forgetting who we are in comparison to an almighty God. This incorrect view of ourselves is the result of not visiting with Him.

Come on, my sister, let’s visit with our Lord today, and be humbled by His glory and be blessed with His grace and mercy. And when anyone asks, how do you stay humble? Tell them, I draw near to God in prayer. The beautiful sight of the Lord humbles me.

Prayer: Father God, thank you for your love and care for me. I draw near to you, and I ask that you will draw near to me. As I look upon you and see your goodness and mercy, I am humbled. Forgive me for not visiting with you. I receive your forgiveness and love. I ask that you keep me close to your side, Lord, and help me stay humble. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

(Read James 4:6-7; Romans 12:3)

    He Is Worthy for us the keep that posture of humility!! I’m humbled daily looking at His creations. So much has happened in my life to where I want to stay humble in my heart, mind, and with my actions and in how I speak!! Daily I think of the scripture verse in 2 Chronicles 7:14, because I want to receive the promise in that verse. I believe in many ways He is keeping that promise as I do my part.🙏
