Be Humble like David
2 Samuel 7: 18
Then went king David in, and sat before the LORD, and he said, Who am I, O Lord GOD? and what is my house, that thou hast brought me hitherto?
👆 David’s humility vs Saul’s humility 👇
1 Samuel 9: 21
And Saul answered and said, Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel? and my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? wherefore then speakest thou so to me?
David humbled himself and Saul also humbled himself.
David’s humility was exceptional whereas Saul’s humility was emotional.
Saul’s humility was only in the beginning, but he didn’t continue to be humble till the end…
David humbled himself after emerging as a great and mighty king, after experiencing the fullest of the blessings of God.
Many of us are hasty in our life like Saul. In the early days of our salvation we humble ourselves in the presence of God, we have zealous for godly matters, we will spend more time with the Lord, but down the line after receiving the blessings from God, we forget our past life and exhibit our true colors.
Humility is the greatest weapon of a child of God.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit (PS 34:18)
Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and before honour is humility (Pro18: 12)
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:(1 Pet5: 6)
How do we get this humility?
By the grace of God, by the anointing of the Holy Spirit, by the Word of God, by spending more time in the presence of God, by understanding who God is and what man is.
What is man, that thou art mindful of him? and the son of man, that thou visitest him? (Ps8: 4)
Humility is the character of God exhibited through Jesus.
Jesus humbled Himself to the Father God to the extent of dying a miserable death on the cross.
In humility is blessings
Let us humble ourselves…
Stay Blessed 😊
