HUMILITY

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

exalted.

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

GOD.

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,

laughter, joy.

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

with ME!

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

MY Will.

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,

CHRIST-like, GOD-seeking.

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

resilient.

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,

Path.

Many are deceived by pursuing their own ways apart from coming

close to ME and seeking MY Will, MY Truth, and MY Direction for

their life.

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

work iniquity.
