Proverbs: Humbleness Before the Father

“6For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 8guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints. 9Then you will understand righteousness and justice and equity, every good path; 10for wisdom will come into your heart, and knowledge will be pleasant to your soul; 11discretion will watch over you, understanding will guard you, 12delivering you from the way of evil, from men of perverted speech, 13who forsake the paths of uprightness to walk in the ways of darkness, 14who rejoice in doing evil and delight in the perverseness of evil, 15men whose paths are crooked, and who are devious in their ways.” ~Proverbs 2

Seek after the Lord

For He is good in all His ways

In Him are the treasures of wisdom,

Of truth,

Of life

Found

.

In Him are all good things found

Yes, and if you seek after Him

He promises to be found

And He will wrap you up in His arms

He’ll protect you,

Love you,

Watch over you

To the very end

.

But how indeed can He

When we do not humble our hearts

Do not submit to His ways

Do not bend our knees to our King?

Let’s submit to the Lord

Let’s humble ourselves in His sight

Let’s daily think on Him in delight

.

We are the children of the Lord

Adopted by the Lord

Our Father in Heaven

Let us submit to Him

Our loving Father

And let Him provide

All our needs

Let Him overshadow us

In His wings

Let Him love us

Unconditionally

.

He told us

What is good—

What does the good Lord require

Of us?

To do justice

To love kindness

To walk in humility

With our God!

~

Micah 6:8

He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?

“All of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, because,

‘God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.’

6Humble yourselves, therefore, under God’s mighty hand, that he may lift you up in due time. 7Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.” ~1 Peter 5

“’God opposes the proud but shows favor to the humble.’

7Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. 8Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded. 9Grieve, mourn and wail. Change your laughter to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up.” ~James 4

Luke 14:11

For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”

2 Chronicles 7:14

If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

Ephesians 4:31-32

Let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.

“3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5heb predestined us for adoption to sonshipc through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves.” ~Ephesians 1
