I was watching the series “The Bible” on Netflix last night, when Christ said this to those in His presence. It was an amazing moment to watch. The Spirit testified to me that this was what I needed to share today. I hit rewind and watched that part again. It really was so profound.
I have experienced this exact thing in my life. A few years ago, I thought I knew better than God. I thought that I knew what was best for my life. I was involved in really risky new age practices that I didn’t fully understand. I was proud. I was stubborn. God and Christ kept trying to help me out, but I was slow to listen. The humbling began. I hit rock bottom in every way you could imagine. When we exalt ourselves, when we are proud, stubborn, and boastful, we WILL be humbled. It’s only a matter of time. The humbling will be painful, but God knows that the ends justify the means. We have to be pruned in order to grow, in order to flourish.
When we humble ourselves before God, we can gain more than we ever could by being proud and stubborn. If we surrender our lives to him, he can make more of us than we could ever make of ourselves.
Wishing you a beautiful day!
