A Fulfilling Humility.

humility

Pride. A powerful word that can be very dangerous if we don’t recognize the control it can have over us. Pride can get in the way of so many areas of our lives. Pride can block our view of what we really need to do within ourselves. Such as, if we have been hurt, we need to let down our pride…and forgive. If we have been set back financially, we need to let down our pride…and ask for help. If we have hurt someone else, we need to let down our pride…and ask for other’s to forgive us. Once we begin to look within ourselves with true honesty, we can see clearly the roadblock pride can create. Shake off the pride-filled spirit, and surrender to the humble spirit. An amazing amount of comfort and peace begins to fill your soul, when you allow God to help you release the things pride tends to bind you with. The Grace you receive from God brings that wonderful humility…a humility that actually brings you more fulfillment than anything on earth can ever fulfill. Strive for that kind of humility. Then the light of Jesus will shine in you even brighter.

When pride comes, then comes disgrace; but wisdom is with the humble. PROVERBS 11:2

Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. PROVERBS 16:18

A man’s pride brings him low, but a man of humble spirit gains honor. PROVERBS 29:23

God is with us.
