“Being made in the image of God, I have the ability to humble myself and lose identity. Jesus humbled Himself and said, “I can do nothing of mine own self.” I too must humble myself, God will not do it for me. Jesus said, “Learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart.” God will humiliate me, but never humble me. He will abase me from the outside, but I must humble from the inside. Humbling isn’t a virtue, it’s a responsibility, an obligation to God. Who do I think I am?” © Arthur Burt, ‘There Shall be No Ebb,’ Pg. 71.
My child, blessed are the humble (meek) for they shall inherit the earth. Humility is born from a willful act of your heart that produces great Kingdom fruit and opens the doors to access great Kingdom resources.
A prideful man can be publicly humiliated yet remain arrogant in his heart. Humility comes from an inward revelation that you are not in control, but you have been bought at a great price. The humble one bows to My authority and seeks to do My will not his will.
The humble one has received the revelation that only true liberty comes in submission to Me as King in all the affairs and things of this life. The humble one knows that in true humility and meekness there is great power because he understands I AM the power source and it is not of himself.
The humble one is not afraid to ask of Me because he knows if he asks in alignment with My Word, I will do it. The humble one does not need to prove himself or promote himself to get man’s approval or attention. He realizes that man’s acceptance is fleeting and can vanish like smoke in the wind when the social values of society change.
Pride is the enemy of humility. Arrogance and self-promotion travel with pride. They gain a foothold in the mind through deception and self-righteousness. They mock humility. They claim to be a sign of great strength when in truth it is just the opposite. The truly humble one, who knows me and is one with Me, has access to real power.
I speak to you today about humility because it is not taught as a vital characteristic My people need to develop. True humility comes from deep intimacy with Me. It comes from a confident knowing of Who I AM in you and who you are in Me.
Humble yourself before Me, before My Word, and before My desires and plans for your life. Then I will use you to do the greater works, because I can only trust the truly humble ones not to touch My glory. Humility opens the door of promotion in the Kingdom of the Son.
Receive My words of instruction. Keep your eyes on Me. I AM your prize. I will guide you and bring you into a place that is greater than all you have ever dreamed.
All is well. Shalom.
