Humble yourselves

March 24th, 2007

Lately I have been dwelling on James 4:10. It says, “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up”. It has really been rolling around in my spirit.

When I think of humbling yourself before God I am reminded of those old lunchtime movies we used to watch as kids. You know those ones about King Arthur and the knights of the round table. The knights were great and mighty warriors and would go off to a far land and battle in the kings name.

As soon as they returned from battle the first thing they did was to go and see the king. They could be found before the king down on one knee with their face to the ground. They might have been great warriors, but they knew their place before the king. They always humbled themselves.

I really think that is the key to humbling yourself before God. We need to know our place. He is ALMIGHTY God, ALL powerful, All knowing and ALL sufficient. We are just His humble servants waiting for the call to go in to battle for Him.

If you are someone who struggles with pride issues at times, I would encourage you to remember the knights of the old movies. Go into the King of Kings presence, get down on your knees and place your face to the ground. While you are there remember just how awesome your King really is and ALL He has done for you.

God Bless,
