True humility is true beauty. A humble heart is like medicine to your soul. Those who rush around importantly have no real connection to Me because the connection comes from the heart of love and brokenness poured out to Me. Then I will come and comfort them and they shall know Me and know My ways.
Do not let the worries of this world overwhelm you. They are there to bring you to Me. True humility is not just an attribute. It emanates from the depth of your soul. It comes when you truly understand the plan of salvation and the extreme love We had for you to allow Christ to die on the cross when you were still a sinner.
True humility towards Us, yet a quiet pride that you are the child of the King of the universe. That you were found worthy, not by your goodness or works, but because you were covered by the blood of Christ, to come into the family of believers. Not as a newcomer, but as one who was chosen and planned for since the beginning of time.
Humility for this incredible gift to an unworthy recipient. And just plain outrageous joy at being part of the family!!
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves in tender compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience— bearing with one another and forgiving each other, if anyone has a grievance against another. Just as the Lord pardoned you, so also you must pardon others. But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfect harmony. Let the shalom of Messiah rule in your hearts—to this shalom you were surely called in one body. Also be thankful. Let the word of Messiah dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another with all wisdom in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with gratitude in your hearts to God. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Yeshua, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”
Colossians 3:12-17 TLV
