Exalt God more Self less
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.
1 Peter 5:6
We are now living in a time of unrest… There is no question of it, for all you have to do is turn on the television and listen to the news or log into social media and it’s there as well. Whether it is related to this pandemic, political disparities, racial profiling or an unjust justice system; we are surrounded with unrest. And in this time God is raising up His prophets to speak what thus says He, but in that we need to be careful to never exalt ourselves. We are servants who only need to be obedient and do the task the Lord has given us to do. Speak what thus says the Lord, without bringing any attention to self, because we must remember God’s word which says, “Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honour and power: for thou has created all things, and for thy pleasure they are and were created.” (Revelations 4:11). All the glory, honor and praise belong to the Lord God, and we as “servants” must operate in the spirit of humility.
But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
So in our servitude, we should always remain humble, for it isn’t about us, but doing the work the Lord has commissioned us to do. We don’t have to announce who we are by means of any title except that we are servants of the Lord. I find that we can all become guilty of trying to prove ourselves to man, by means of our titles are even our gifts. When the word of God plainly states to “study to show thyself approved to “God.” Then you have the mentality of my brother and my sister…. There is One Body…The Body of Christ and if we are all a part of that One Body, why is it that you can refer to this one as a sister or brother in Christ, but the other one who fellowships in another “building” is overlooked. This isn’t the spirit of God… This is a flesh move… Meaning you are sowing discord which is one of the things that the Word of God says that He hates. We have to get it together, and yes I am saying, we, because like I have stated earlier…. We are all guilty of it because we “all “ fall short. We as a body of believers have to stop sowing division amongst ourselves.
For there is no respect of persons with God.
We have to stop acting as though we are the only one’s hearing from God. God has and is using His chosen all over the world and some times it is the ones you least expect. Let us stop judging people by what our carnal eyes see and ask the Lord to show us their heart. It’s not a competition, it’s a gift and anointing that is on loan from the Most High. This is what ushers in the spirit of jealousy, but that’s a whole other post. Bottom line, let us start exalting God more and self less. He deserves all the glory, all the honor and all the praise. It is His and His alone.
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
