Humility Lets God In
Humility is the fear of the Lord; it's wages are riches and honor and life.
Learning to love and honor God first is everything. This is what the fear of the Lord is all about. Proverbs here reveals to us that the fear of the Lord and true humility are one in the same.
The world paints being humbled as something painful and embarrassing but this is not the case when God brings us low. In fact, there is a peace and rest in humility that exists no where else. Most people understand shame and embarrassment, but few people understand the sweet experience of remaining in humble communion with God who himself is meek and lowly.
Pride has a thousand faces yet it exhausts us in all its forms. Pride alienates us from God literally cutting us off from the very source of life. It takes faith and bravery to lay down our pride as God reveals it to us, but the reward is great. Ask God to reveal where in your life pride may be robbing you of his sweet fellowship.
