Humility and Our Position in the Kingdom

“The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
Let the many islands be glad.
Clouds and thick darkness surround Him;
Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.
Fire goes before Him
And burns up His adversaries round about.
His lightnings lit up the world;

The earth saw and trembled.

The mountains melted like wax at the presence of the Lord,
At the presence of the Lord of the whole earth.
The heavens declare His righteousness,
And all the peoples have seen His glory.”
Psalm 97:1-6

Humility is knowing who we are in relation to who God is.  When we spend time in prayer and worship and praise of Who God is, then we begin to realize what all we are not! He is the Creator God.  He gives us each breath and allows us to live and see and walk and hear and do.  All gifts and talents are from above.  All our abilities; all our possibilities; all our adequacy comes from God.  With God all things are possible!  Without Him nothing is possible.  He made you; He loves you; He cares for you; He has a plan to prosper you. 

You are His son or daughter.  That makes you are prince or princess!  You are of royalty.  Does your life show that?  We are not to lord our position over others, but to be thankful that God allowed you to be adopted into His kingdom.  We receive it with humility and grace, not with pride and overbearance.  Because God so loved us, we also ought to love one another (1 John 4:11).

Humility is living with a spirit of thanksgiving and gratefulness.  When was the last time that you took time just to thank God?  To really praise Him for who He is and for what He has done for you?  Do you recognize that the future is in His hands or are you trying to control your own future?  Relax!  The King of the universe has it under control, so you don’t have to!  Come to Him.  His burden is easy and His load is light.  Don’t think that you are in control; if Jesus is your Lord, give Him the reigns.  He can be Lord over your future and He is faithful and true!
