Let’s Wear Humility Like a Favorite Garment
Updated: Jan 30
We can see that being humble isn't held in high regards in the world. But let's remember that everything in this world is backwards, upside down OPPOSITE of everything Jesus stands for!
If I could have a prayer granted, it would at there would be a great turning away from the Self Centered culture that's permeated this world😌✨
~That people begin to teach and demonstrate living humbled lives [ let's face it, it's a life undeserved and only possible through the blood of Jesus🙌🏽✨]. Each generation to come is being born into a more and more wicked self loving world and by God WE, THEY, ALL OF US Need Jesus!!
Learning to act with humility should begin in childhood, but can be learned anytime through God's Truth and Word, by learning to become imitators and Rejectors of the ways of this world!
The world tells us to be strong, to find strength in (yourself or self help material), but God tells us NOT to rely on our own power but to rely on Him! Listening to the world only pulls us further away from biblical truths that God desires for us to live by.
A humbled person displays beauty, ( not beauty as the world emphasizes), respect, and acknowledges that we are weak and need Gods provisions, and decisions to grow strong.
Out of humility kindness grows, compassion, a desire to serve the body of Christ, instead of just ourselves, along with all the other Fruits of the Spirit.
This world has managed to convince people that being 'Out Of Your Mind' is not only acceptable, but desirable. Drugs, particularly the legalization of marajuana ( as well as overlooking other hallucinogenic drugs) has brought humanity to a new low. People could care less how our air in our cities smell, how they present themselves to others, or how it effects others as well as themselves.
Does anyone really think God created medicinal plants TO GET AND STAY HIGH and as far from the influence of God as possible? People's ridiculous excuse that marajuana is "just a plant" is nauseating 🤮 so is opium, and cocaine, opiates...you get my point? It takes humility to recognize that we all need help, lifting up, and escape from the darkness of this world, but God didn't design us to abuse the minds given to us.
There is much information on how marajuana is produced these days, and it's much more dangerous than the one of old, Here's just one of many informative material on modern marajuana:
But the end of all things is at hand; be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. ~1Peter 4:7
For whether we be beside ourselves, it is to God; or whether we be sober, it is for your cause. ~ 2 Cor 5:13
Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour
~1 Peter 5:8
Or do you not know that your body is a temp,e of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. ~1 Cor 6:19-20
So many drugs Used for Actual Medical purposes have been derived from plants, but God made nothing for us to come out of our minds. I mention this particular area because it's so prevailing in our society. There's the defense of 'I can do what I want with my body', well, yes you can but should you? Will your actions allow you to live at your potential? Is this allowing God's potential to reach you or the devil?
It takes a humbled mind to recognize right from wrong and make the hard choice, to want to live for something bigger. We were created for bigger better things than self centered, vapid worldly ideals. With a humbled mind we can better Resist temptations and misusing our body and minds.
Imagine humanity if we all begin to act with humility? Imagine the changes, the shifting of negativity, the willingness to stop imitating wrong and stand up for right. Peace through worshipping Him and knowing that He can change the trajectory of our lives if we stop looking to this world for change, and identity and put our bullseye onto Him.🙌🏽✨
Christmas points us to the man who gave us our destiny. It is a bold reminder and remembering of who and what we're living for! But it's up to us to continue pointing to Him and walk his narrow path.✨
