SCRIPTURAL UNDERSTANDING :


PHILIPPIANS 2:3

"Doing none at all through selfishness or self conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourself."


JAMES 4: 6-10

"But He gives greater favour.Because of this He says "Alahim resists the proud and gives favour to the HUMBLE." So then subject yourselves to Alahim. Resist the devil and he shall flee from you. Draw near to Alahim and He will draw near to you. Cleanse hands, sinners. And cleanse the hearts, you double minded! Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to dejection. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Master, and He shall lift you up."


COLOSSIANS 3;12-13

"Therefore as chosen ones of Yahuah, set apart and beloved, put on compassion, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, patience, bearing with one another, and forgiving each other if anyone has a complaint against another, indeed, as Mashiak forgave you so also should you."


This is what Yahusha expects of us if we want to be part of His life with Him. It is something that we probably haven't considered, to crush and deal hardly with our self. To break and humiliate the desires in our mind. This is a real battle to become humble and bow down, as our nature screams to be recognised and lifted up. To be humble appears as a weakness, to "Let everyone have it" (Rule No.2)


The personality of the devil is proud, full of strength and arrogance, wanting to destroy any chance of us breaking away. How easy is this to do?? As its all inside, a hidden battle, no one knows what you're going through, but eventually it will show in behaviours and attitudes.

Or is it all too hard and you want to stay where you are?
