Avoid Or Pursue
Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It gives secrets and sequence. It reveals mysteries and mindsets. It tells you what to avoid and what to pursue. Proverbs 11:2 – When pride comes then comes disgrace, but with humility comes wisdom. Have you ever noticed that most people try to avoid things, instead of pursue things. They don’t understand that often the best way to avoid something, is to pursue a better thing. If you pursue humility, you don’t have to worry about pride, it cannot come – it is drowned out, locked out, by humility. Pursue humility and then wisdom comes, it’s unavoidable. Humility – accepting God’s Word as true, pre-determining to obey instantly and completely with joy whatever He commands – no matter what changes are required. Humility – means you accept correction from whatever means God chooses, the mouth of babes, a donkey, a person you know or don’t know. Humility comes under – it recognizes the Source of truth is God, no matter what delivery method or messenger He chooses. Humility brings wisdom. If you walk in humility pride cannot get a foothold. If you walk in wisdom, you will never experience disgrace. Do you want to walk in wisdom? Do you want a life built on wisdom? then humility must become your DNA. Submit to God, prefer others over yourself. Want to change. Don’t defend yourself, examine yourself. Even something you’ve always done or believed… If people examined themselves as much as they defended themselves – their life would be an example of wisdom and the fruit of it. Do you examine yourself? Or do you defend yourself? Everyone has their own way of doing things, we easily see defensiveness in other people, but do we see it in ourselves? Humility isn’t defensive, its inquisitive, it desires to learn more - to see if there is any way in them, that is not the best way… so they can change. So they can become more like Christ, in the humility He showed, so the will of the Father is unhindered in their life. God is leading you, are you hearing Him? Are you willing to follow? Are you willing to change this thing that he brought to your attention? If you humble yourself, wisdom will come as much as disgrace comes with pride. Humble yourself, or exalt yourself… Wisdom or disgrace? God gives choices. Praying that you will pursue the habit of humility, that you will become like Christ in this hallmark way that distinguished Him above anything else. So wisdom can come, so you will walk in the complete will of your Father in Heaven – and become what you couldn’t dream, and see things and walk in things you could never imagine!
Love you all,
