Being humble is hard, very hard. Thursday August 14th, 2003
One of the biggest problems, I as a Born Again Christian faces, is trying to be humble. Or should I say, trying to remember to be humble. As a lower member of the middle class of the most powerful nation on earth, it is sometimes difficult to be humble. To be humble when I compare myself to those in public office is almost impossible. To be humble when I talk to members of the medical community, men and women with tons of college and fancy letters after their names, yet many of them don't even know it is a baby they are murdering when they perform, or condone by their silence, abortions. But, as a Christian, I must obey the word of the Lord and be humble, even when it seems all but impossible.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:4)
And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted. (Matthew 32:12)
And lest, when I come again, my God will humble me among you, and that I shall bewail many which have sinned already, and have not repented of the uncleanness and fornication and lasciviousness which they have committed. (2Corinthians 12:21)
But He giveth more grace. Wherefore He saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. (James 4:6)
Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He shall lift you up. (James 4:10)
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time: (1Peter 5:5&6)
Well, with that much Scripture insisting that I be humble, I guess I'd best put my pride away and work at being humble, even around those that live in third world countries like Canada and Liberia. With the words of God ringing in my ears, I will try my best to be humble when talking to the legends in their own minds that hold public office, those that have convinced themselves that they are our leaders and not our public servants. From here on out, I will do my level best to keep a civil tongue in my head when talking to members of the medical occupation and never again will I try to maneuver one around so that I can try to see if light shines in one ear and out the other, even if they can't seem to understand that it is a living baby, not a choice.
Mostly I am committed to becoming more humble because I, and all Born Again Christians, need God to forgive us for our sins and heal our land. If My people, which are called by My name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2Chronicles 7:14)
Lord, it will be hard, but I promise to work hard at being humble, for Lord my sins are many and our land is desperately ill. Amen.
Lord God Creator of all things, we give Thee thanks for giving us the second chance we do not deserve. We thank Thee Lord for our brave troops who are at this very instant freeing and liberating people through out the kingdom of satan. Lord we beseech Thee that Thou would send to our men a Paul, to preach Your word to them while they go to free those held captive by the forces of evil. Touch the Presidents heart Lord, lead him in a direction to send evangelist to our troops, give him the strength Lord to serve You, to use his office, that You have entrusted him with, as Commander in Chief to authorize and send solid evangelical Born Again Washed in the Blood of the Lamb Christian preachers to bring the Word of God to our troops, giving them both reason to fight and the Lord's plan of salvation. And put the end of abortion at the top of his agenda.
Lord Jesus, it is in Thy Sacred and Holy Name I pray, Amen.
red are those quotes of God the Son, the Lord Jesus and the words in purple are those qoutes spoken directly by God the Father and the words in this sickly greenish color are of satan. But all of the Bible is spoken by God and should be viewed as God's handbook for us to run our lives by 2 Timothy 3:16.
God blessed America when she feared Him, now it appears, she may face His wrath.
