How do you stay humble?

October 11, 2019

“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.”

“Draw near to God, and He will draw near to you.” James 4:8

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 God in a while.

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)

    Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a
    blog article or vice-versa? My site discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
    believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel
    free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
    Excellent blog by the way!

    I am really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into
    any internet browser compatibility problems?

    A few of my blog visitors have complained about my site not
    operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.

    Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?
