The Record: The Humble Believes God. Part 3
?We have been looking at humility and belief and are seeing that it is the humble who really believes God. The proud is vain in their imagination and think they are too big or small for God to save, use or work through them for whatever reason.
?If we look at the lives of men and women who God has used mightily in the Bible, in the past and is using today, men who ran and finished well we will see that they had to choose to humble themselves under His mighty hand. Every one is tested and tried but choose to honour God in seasons of both honour and dishonor; even when it cost their lives.
?We look at men like Dr. Billy Graham from humble beginnings, who chose to preach the gospel for 70 years in 185 countries across the world. He believed that the simple message of Jesus Christ could have the power to save lives and humbled himself to minister this in every arena God sent him.
?Some of us may never preach the gospel publicly like He did but if we are humble before God and believe / obey Him our lives can be a testimony to others in amazing ways and for His glory.
? Psalms 10:17 shows that it is God who hears the desire
in the hearts of the humble, prepares their heart and causes His heart to hear them. He knew they would chose to embrace or believe His will and prayer fully obey His instructions to execute His will in the earth. So He placed His expectations or desires in their hearts, because their souls is humbly waiting on Him and refuses to do anything without Him. Psalm 62:5.
?Humility is obedience to God. This always includes loving and serving people with pure motives. It involves holding the Word of God in high esteem even more than your necessary food as Job did. Job 23:12. Holding the Word of God in high esteem means obeying it even when it is not convenient or when you do not feel like it.
The good news is that the faith that believes God is not mere mental accent it is the gift of the Holy Spirit. As we humbly, believe and obey His promptings we will experience Him at work in and through our lives.
**Scripture in Focus*
?Lord , thou hast heard the desire of the humble: thou wilt prepare their heart, thou wilt cause thine ear to hear:
Psalms 10:17 KJV
?My soul, wait thou only upon God; for my expectation is from him. Psalm 62:5 KJV
?Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.Job
?For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
Ephesians 2:8 KJV
The truly humble believes God and experiences his/her part in His eternal purposes. Obedience is the only way to show that you believe God. What is He asking of you Today?
