Today Is Your Best Day... Because of Humility (Part 2)
Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time. 1 Peter 5:6 NKJV
In his book Humility, Andrew Murray says, "Man's chief care, his highest virtue, and his only happiness, now and throughout eternity, is to present himself as an empty vessel in which God can dwell and manifest His power and goodness."
Two Christian men were having a conversation about their personal growth in the Lord. The first man stated, "I love being nothing..."
Before the first man could finish his sentence the second man interrupted and said, "What do you mean by that? I don't understand why you would love being nothing."
"Well," replied the first man, "I love being nothing so that God can be my all in all."
Today is your best day because God wants you to live each moment totally and completely dependent upon Him. The response of humility in your heart affirms that Jesus is all you need, that He is more than sufficient, that He is altogether faithful, and that He will never fail you in any way, through every circumstance of life.
Humility is not measured by what you do or don't do. It is not measured by what you say or how you look. Humility is measured by the attitude and disposition of your heart. It is measured by your surrender, your obedience, your faith, and your complete dependency upon God.
There are no limits to what God can do through the person who is free from pride and who, in humility, looks to God alone, trusts in God alone, receives from God alone, and responds to God alone.
Today, let your heart say, "Lord, I love being nothing, so that You can be my all in all."
