GREATNESS OF HUMILITY!
“....if their uncircumcised hearts are humbled, and they accept their guilt then I will remember my covenant with Jacob and my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham I will remember; I will remember the land” (Leviticus 26:41, 42).
God has numerous blessings for those who humble themselves. God says that He will remember His covenant and bless if one submits himself with humility. The covenant is nothing but God’s promises. When God made covenants with your forefathers, the promises He gave are being extended to you as well, if you humble yourself.
God says, “If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).
Dear children of God, you should never hesitate to humble yourself. Things, like getting saved, attaining anointment and undergoing travel to Zion, should not make you proud and do not look down upon others with contempt. The pride of caste and church should not lead you to loftiness.
Look at Daniel. He did not say that the people of his nation committed sin. Instead, he humbled himself and prayed, “We have sinned and we have done wickedly. We did not pay heed to the voice of God.”
Daniel possessed the power of the Holy Spirit (Daniel 6:3). Daniel was greatly loved by God (Daniel 9:23). He was the one to come across dreams and visions. Not only that. He was also able to interpret those dreams and visions. See, how greatly Daniel humbled himself before God, even though he was so closely associated with God. He combines the Israelites who were with him and jointly pleads saying, “We have sinned and we have done wickedly” (Daniel 9:15).
Look at Nehemiah. He humbled himself and jointly prayed with the Israelites saying, “...confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against you. Both my father’s house and I have sinned. We have acted very corruptly against you” (Nehemiah 1:6, 7).
Dear children of God, whenever you come nearer to God, humble yourself and confess your sins. When you humble and pray, God will remember all the covenants He had made with your forefathers. For all the promises of God in Him are yes and in Him Amen.
To meditate: “And now, O Lord, the word which you have spoken concerning Your servant and concerning his house, let it be established forever and do as you have said” (I Chronicles 17:23).
