Jehovah created us in His own image. As such, His expectations from us is to master humility. Being humble does not imply stooping so low and forgetting one’s dignity. Humility that comes from God involves going out of our comfort zone to becoming like Jesus. Our saviour could have refused the cross. Yet, he stood the test of time simply because He cares about us. He did not curse those who spat in His face. He never rains curses on those who mocked Him. Above all, He did not reject those of us whom like Apostle Peter betrayed Him at the critical point.
Humility is an act of love and God is love.
When everything else has gone wrong,
Prayer comes knocking.
It waits. Knocks. Waits.
Patience in the faces of adversities.
Embracing calmness even in the furnace.
Remember Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego
They mastered the art of waiting.
They were undeterred
If God is indeed their Lord, He bears the capacity to save.
They believe. They trust. Above all, they pray.
Prayer may not be the simpler thing to do.
But the Lord is not seeking your perfection.
You pray anyhow you can and pass on the rest to Jehovah.
He knows exactly what you need.
People who learn to show gratitude to others are often known as happy persons.
Being thankful implies being mindful of the exchanges in process.
To ignore the art of thankfulness can be read to mean many things. Some may consider us as arrogant if we failed to show appreciation for those help they render to us.
We are mindful of the next person the moment we let them know we are grateful to them. This is one way by which we unconsciously reverse the current situation to imagine ourselves in their shoes. We could be the ones providing for or giving to others.
Embracing Christ’s perfection involves recognising He is always with us no matter what we are struggling with. This awareness depicts the sense of appreciation for the divine.
To thank our Jehovah only in the good moments while we solely come to Him for help in the bad times is a wrong attitude.
As genuine Christian, we must be humble to thank God all the time irrespective of what is going on in our lives.
God must be omnipresent in our good and bad days. We don’t praise Him when all is okay and then comes crying to Him when life gets tough.
Devouted athletes will explain the enormous stress they went through. To become the best they have to invest lots of time into training..
In similar pattern , waiting for perfect weather in order to get out there to work, is a waste of time.
Jehovah simply encourages us not to worry about searching for perfect timing.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower. Those who cannot do without Him are not afraid of everyday life’s worries. They know He can handle it all. They put their problems at the feet of our Almighty Jehovah and move on to focus on another day. This is the assurance that the Lord is in charge when we trust Him, wholeheartedly.
