Feb 23 – Humility

“Love the Lord your God
with all your heart
and with all your soul
and with all your strength
and with all your mind’;
and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”

Life carries no perfection for any of us.  God gave us a perfect place, the garden, and we blew it.  Then He promised to deliver us (the Hebrews, the believers in Him) to a place where we would not get sick, and all would be blessed, and things would be good.  All He asked of us is that we follow the rules He gave us. That we be faithful to Him, as He is faithful to us.

Know therefore that the LORD your God is God;
he is the faithful God,
keeping his covenant of love
to a thousand generations of those
who love him and keep his commands.                    –Deuteronomy 7:9

In trying to help us keep our focus on Him, God allows events in our lives to happen, good and bad.  All for the purpose of teaching.  Many times, when  bad things happen, we cry out why me rather than Thank You (remember, in all things give thanks to the Lord).  And when good things happen, we take full credit for it, as if we created the situation and the solution all by our lonesome selves.  To keep us in check, God allows life to have difficult turns to humble us.  To help us remember that all things are by Him and through Him and for Him, we are just sharers in the wealth, the blessings.

He humbled you,
causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna,
which neither you nor your fathers had known,
to teach you that man does not live on bread alone
but on every word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.          –Deuteronomy 8:3

My prayer is that we keep a humble soul and constantly recognize the source of your gifts and the source of your strength in times of difficulty.

After a time of rest, it's time to resurrect this blog with a light on prayer and building our own personal prayer garden. A woman of faith, I want to share my personal insights into God and the Gospel in the hopes that these touch another heart, encouraging them to come to Christ.
