Humbling Yourself Before God

What do you think it means to humble yourself? The Webster dictionary defines humility as not being proud, haughty, arrogant, or assertive. It also describes the characteristics of humility as reflecting, expressing, or offering a spirit of deference or submission.

Now what does it mean to humble yourself before God? To me, it means coming before Jesus in awe and reverence, despite of what people may think of you. It’s being willing to say, “I was wrong”. It’s the positioning of your heart to be open to His Word. It’s taking the focus off of yourself and focusing on what really matters – God!

Come to the cross with a clear conscience. Confess your sins to the Lord, give up whatever is burdening you, and be willing to leave it at the cross. Much too often, we give something up to God and try to take it right back when we get stressed about it. Once you take it to the cross, leave it there. It’s not easy to humble yourself… but it is freeing.

James 4:10 (NIV)
“Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.”
