Manna For Today: Tuesday, June 14, 2016
James 4:10 – Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up.
We struggle with humility because it requires two words we really don’t like; they are submission and surrender. Our lower nature hotly contests any suggestion of these two concepts. We read about Christ’s atoning work and recollect all He suffered and still find it difficult to receive or follow simple instruction because the ideas were not our own.
We find every imaginable way to get God to attend to us and neglect the simple solution offered in this text. Just simply come to God with a sense of our insignificance and a heart of real repentance. That’s what God is asking us to do!
Today, come to God consumed by His interest and divested of your own; prepare for the next level of experiences He has for you!
Peace and blessings!
