How to become Humble
James 4:10 “Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up”.
When it comes to being more like Christ the first thing we must do in order to have His mindset is to be humble. Why? Because if we aren’t it will ruin our relationship with God. What I mean is God is above us. He is God, not us. He is the Lord of Lords not us, therefore we must trust and lean on His direction and understanding vs trying to do everything ourselves.
8For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” declares the LORD.
9“For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
Trust God always
When we come to terms with the truth and realize God is sovereign and He is the King that is when we need to humble ourselves and trust God more than we can ever trust ourselves. However, this world will tell you the exact opposite. People will tell you to “follow your heart; go with your gut; or do what you want”. But God says to
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart
And do not lean on your own understanding”. -Proverbs 3:5
Nevertheless, when you humble yourself you must realize it is a continual thing. You must continually humble yourself until you have fully adapted the habit. In order to fully be humble you must ask God to make you humble. God is able to do whatever is according to his will and if you believe you can become humble, God will do the rest.
1 John 5:14 “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us”.
Be humble and Love God
To be humble, is to know who God is and to Love God more than you love anything else. Which is really difficult, but it is possible. In Matthew it says you cannot have two masters, you will either Love God or Money. Therefore you must choose what you love, God or this world? If you truly love God, you will ask God to make you humble and you will have faith that He can help you become humble!
