Being Humble: Part 2

We have to “get over ourselves” as Paul did.  Humbling oneself is a requirement to become a fully matured Son or Daughter.  Wisdom recorded in Proverbs chapter 16:

1 Go ahead and make all the plans you want,

but it’s the Lord Who will ultimately direct your steps.

2 We are all in love with our own opinions,

convinced they’re correct.

But the Lord is in the midst of us,

testing and probing our every motive.

3 Before you do anything,

put your trust totally in God and not in yourself.

Then every plan you make will succeed.

4 The Lord works everything together to accomplish His purpose.

Even the wicked are included in His plans—

He sets them aside for the day of disaster.

5 Exalting yourself is disgusting to the Lord,

for pride attracts His punishment—

and you can count on that!

6 You can avoid evil through surrendered worship

and the Fear of God,

for the power of His faithful Love

removes sin’s guilt and grip over you.

7 When the Lord is pleased with the decisions you’ve made,

HE activates grace to turn enemies into friends.

8 It is better to have little with a heart that Loves justice

than to be rich and not have God on your side.

9 Within your heart you can make plans for your future,

but the Lord chooses the steps you take to get there. (TPT)

There is nothing else for me to write today.  Dwell on the above Truths today and for that matter, every day.
