Humility is humble submission. It is a willingness to serve others
without complaint, to overlook harm from others with a smile and
forgiveness. It is a desire to serve others and to please GOD. It is a
desire to serve GOD at all times with hopeful expectations, to be
compliant, a willing spirit always ready to serve GOD and others.
Humility is also willing to take a back seat – the last chair, the
furthest position, to be in the background, to be unnoticed.
Luke 14:7-12. And he put forth a parable to those which were
bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms;
saying unto them, When thou art bidden of any man to a wedding,
sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honorable man than
thou be bidden of him; And he that bade thee and him come and
say to thee, Give this man place; and thou begin with shame to take
the lowest room. But when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the
lowest room; that when thou art bidden, go and sit down in the
lowest room; that when he that bade thee cometh, he may say unto
thee, Friend, go up higher: then shalt thou have worship in the
presence of them that sit at meat with thee. For whosoever exalteth
himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be
Matthew 19:30. But many that are first shall be last; and the last
shall be first.
It is the person who is forgotten because they are so lowly, they
blend into the scenery. They do not want center stage. They want to
be hidden away, quiet, unassuming, submissive to GOD. This is
humility, daughter and this is MY bride.
She is all these things. Do you see your errors now daughter? Let
US continue… What is being humble? It is working behind the
scenes but not desiring the lime light. It is complete submission to
GOD. It is seeking to obey GOD in all things.
Humility is not worrying about what other people think of you. It is
doing for others without receiving credit. It is desiring favor from
GOD and not men. It is growing in favor with GOD and pleasing
It is quiet and unassuming.
It is growing in GOD.
It is being “CHRIST-like.” Humility is most beautiful to GOD. A
humble, GOD-fearing person shines in GOD’s Eyes.
Humility is wanting to please GOD and walk in His Path. To be lowly
and not think well of yourself and to not think yourself better than
others, to consider yourself below others, and to not judge those
around you. I am the only ONE to judge. It does not mean you are
to be abased. It means you are to respect others’ feelings even if
they stumble and not to belittle them in your heart, to have
compassion for them because you too are not beyond sinning
before a Holy GOD.
This is what happens when someone is humble. They create a
wonderful testimony. They shine in MY Kingdom, in MY Eyes. They
receive the Ear of GOD. I listen to MY humble servants when they
cry out to ME. I would go to any extreme to save MY humble
servants. I will move heaven and earth for MY humble servants. Do
you understand this, MY daughter? MY humble servants are
devoted to ME. They understand that they cannot do anything
without ME. They are always seeking ME in all ways like a child
seeks its parent. This is MY humble servant. They have no self will.
They trust only ME in their daily walk. They search ME for their
answers. They trust ME wholeheartedly and I answer them. I give
them MY Best because they seek ME above all others for answers.
They are humble and glorious in MY Sight. They have a soft-spoken
beauty about them. They are not like the world around them.
They stand out from the crowd. Their beauty is GOD-like and
heavenly. This is how heaven is – full of people secure in their GOD
because I meet all their needs.
There is no need to be brash or rude, arrogant or prideful. All their
needs are met through ME. They are content, willing to serve, and
happy to serve because I fulfill all their needs, all the time. No one
vies for attention in MY heavenlies.
Everyone is content. It is a place of purity, peace, calm, love,
Childlike faith is important because a child does not get ahead of
itself. A child follows close behind its parent because it trusts the
parent. It clings to the parent with hopeful expectation waiting for
instruction, guidance, leadership. The child does not assume the
role of parent. It knows better. It cannot lead; it trusts only the parent
to meet all of its needs. When the child gets out of sight of the
parent, panic sets in because it knows all its needs are met in the
parent it has grown to love and trust. This is the relationship
between the truly humble and GOD. The humble follow GOD blindly
out of trust and obedience and GOD delivers them.
There are not answers anywhere else. GOD is Supreme and the
only True Hope, Reliable Hope.
Children seek their parents for all their needs. They cry after them
because their parents can deliver them just as GOD delivers the
humble who follow HIM from a humble, pure heart.
Is this making sense to you now daughter? Can a person full of
pride change their ways and become humble? Daughter, the
answer is “yes” by the guidance and submission to ME, your GOD.
So with GOD all things are possible? Yes, all things are possible
Proverbs 15:33. The fear of the LORD is the instruction of wisdom;
and before honor is humility.
Let US begin. Humility is about love. Love comes from a heart of
humility. Love does not come from pride. Pride destroys love. Pride
says: “I am better than you;” “I know more than you;” “You are worth
less than ME;” “You are valueless to ME;” “I am self- sufficient;” and
“I do not need you.” This is what pride stands for, MY child.
Pride is ugly in all forms. It is self-seeking, self-centered, selfish, and
its roots are evil. Vain glory rises up against GOD and says: “I don’t
need GOD.” I am MY own god – I rule myself. It is ugly and
abominable. There is no beauty in this. There is nothing redeeming
in this. It puts others off. It causes people to feel inferior, rejected,
unloved, offended, hurt. There is nothing remotely GOD-like in pride
and it is the opposite of the characteristic of CHRIST. There is
nothing CHRIST- like in pride. Nothing good comes from pride – only
evil. Do you understand, MY child? How can we flee from the
appearance of pride, LORD? Daughter, you must run from pride,
run far from it. Seek humility at all times.
Daughter, there is no need to build yourself up to seek the attention
of others if you have MY Love and Affection.
Seek MY Love and Affection and be satisfied in it only and all
desires to seek love from those around you will be eclipsed by MY
all-consuming love. The people around you cannot gratify your
deepest needs – only I can do this for you. Only I can satisfy the
hungry, longing, empty heart.
I have all the answers for the longing, empty heart. I can fill all
longings. Men cannot. They are not capable although it appears that
way. There is only short- lived and brief gratification from the
approval of others. I am the wellspring that fills to completion. I fill
and satisfy all the longings of the human heart. Come to ME to
satisfy your need for love and affection. Lay down pride. It is a
destructive force and has no love. It operates outside of love and
only brings destruction to everyone. Pride is the first evil. Still it rules
and reigns in men’s hearts. Pride causes men to seek after all ways
contrary to seeking GOD.
Men build themselves up by position in their work, talents, wealth,
possessions, and relationships with others. These are idols and they
do not set their sights on GOD for their answers, only to build
themselves up through pursuits that I do not ordain, so that they can
appear successful to those around them. Only the humble-hearted
pursue GOD for their answers and needs and put aside their desire
to pursue the things to impress those around them.
When you try to amass wealth or make a name for yourself in the
world – even through ministry work, it is you striving to be accepted
by others, to seek approval from those around you. This is not MY
Will. It cannot be. MY humble children seek ME for their needs daily
and I deliver them. This is how I teach trust for GOD.
When MY children strive in their own power and succeed, they are
failing because I will not reward those who are out of MY Will
although things look well and good, it is false security.
And I also allow MY children to fail in their strivings so they see they
need ME. I need to be the desire of the heart and the answer to
everything. Everything else is false hope, leading MY children out of
Yes these are prideful children seeking their own way apart from
consulting ME and knowing and trusting ME. This leads to inferior
satisfaction. Strive and strive, MY children strive and only come up
empty longing for more, never really satiated – always wanting more,
but not knowing what. I am that “WHAT!” I am the only way to true
satisfaction, to a whole heart, whole spirit, whole soul.
I satisfy, I complete, I make whole, I fill the voids of the human
heart’s longings, nothing or no one else. This is the basis of pride
and the sin that stems from it, an ever-seeking heart looking for
gratification and approval in everything but GOD. Empty, lonely, and
unfulfilled is the ultimate outcome, a sad existence that I never
meant for MY creation.
Pride, an ugly sin that is completely devoid of love in any form, a
loveless position holds no love for anyone. Humility by contrast
loves. It is not self-serving. It does not rule over others. It waits for
others to be served first. It holds others in higher esteem than itself.
It does not take advantage. It is not rude or arrogant.
It is not haughty. It does not put on airs. It does not flaunt. It is
beautiful, soft- spoken, sweet-natured, loving, caring, GOD-like,
It does not rule over others or force its position. It is only concerned
for the positions of others. This is humility, always in the
background, never vying for first chair. This is MY Way – patient and
Humility is a form of love. It does not impose itself on others. It waits
its turn. It loves above all else. It does not seek to abase others to
be lifted up. It only seeks good for those around.
Why is humility a beautiful thing to ME, GOD? I am pleased when
MY children humble themselves before ME. It is a show of honor,
respect, and trust in ME, their GOD. They put all their hopes and
expectations on ME to fulfill all their needs. They remove their
desire to seek themselves for answers through their own
accomplishments, their own strength, their own self-seeking will.
They are not inclined to follow their own heart, abandon ME, their
GOD, focus on their own selfish pursuits which leads them away
from the One True Way; ME, their GOD. I am the only Way, Truth,
Many are deceived by pursuing their own ways apart from coming
close to ME and seeking MY Will, MY Truth, and MY Direction for
They pursue what the world says is right: seeking money, position,
fame, and satisfaction in a myriad of ways apart from ME, GOD.
This is high class deception.
I am not saying that you should not work or live life, but I am saying
to seek ME first and I can direct the right path to take as you live in
this world. If you pursue your plans and dreams apart from MY
Intervention then you are running outside of MY Will and you leave
yourself open to MY enemy and you are living in sin because you
are not in MY Will. This is pride and rebellion. Many walk in it.
Proverbs 18:12. Before destruction the heart of man is haughty, and
before honor is humility.
Proverbs 29:23. A man’s pride shall bring him low: but honor shall
uphold the humble in spirit.
Matthew 23:12. And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased;
and he that humble himself shall be exalted.
James 4:6. But He giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, GOD
resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
Proverbs 8:13. The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and
arrogancy, and the evil way, and the forward mouth do I hate.
How does one stay in your Will, LORD? This is how to stay in MY
Will: submit yourself to ME – complete surrender. Then I guide your
steps. This is daily. Coming to ME each day and asking for
direction, guidance, like a child. This is childlike faith. The world has
painted a picture that being self-sufficient is the way to a successful
life. It is a well-plotted plan of deception from MY enemy. He has
deceived the world with this lie. MY children pursue life through their
own, thought-out planning and schemes, never once consulting ME,
their MAKER and they believe all is well. If it looks right, it must be
right. But it is evil meant to throw MY children off the narrow path.
Only I have the right course, the right way for MY children to walk in
and this course I give them each day.
John 5:30. I can of MINE OWN SELF do nothing: as I hear, I judge:
and MY judgment is just; because I seek not MINE OWN will, but
the Will of the FATHER which hath sent ME.
If people have to live in this world sometime they are forced to plan
ahead, what about that? My child, yes MY children live in the world,
but I even can give direction about the choices made for the future.
If MY children seek ME, sometimes the answer is: “Be still and
wait.” Only MY children, who are intentionally close to ME, walk with
ME daily, will be given this insight. When MY children are far from
ME and only come to ME occasionally, this I will not bless. I am not
a GOD WHO you can check in with every now and then, as so
many children believe. Many come to ME during their crisis and
then they go back to forgetting ME. These children do not know ME.
I am a GOD who desires intimacy, closeness with MY children. This
is evil to ME…lukewarm, to which I spit out.
Luke 7:21-23. Not everyone that saith unto ME, LORD, LORD, have
we not prophesied in THY Name? And in THY Name have cast out
devils? And in THY Name done many wonderful works? And then
will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from ME, ye that
