Want to know the secret to God guiding and teaching you? It may not be your great faith. It’s certainly not you knowledge of what is right and what is wrong. It’s not your willingness to do what ever it takes. If you want God to teach you His ways and guide you into all truth, you need to be humble.
What is it about the humble that so touches the heart of God? They put other people first. They don’t think highly of themselves. They are willing to serve others. They don’t exaggerate their own talents or exploits. They give freely and don’t expect to be repaid.
It’s not that the humble are doormats. It’s that they understand the kingdom of God. The kingdom is all about putting other’s before ourselves. Taking our eyes off of what is important in our own life and what is important to others. There is no pride, no arrogance, no attitudes of entitlement. But it doesn’t mean weakness. Humility comes with a lot of strength and willpower to not have to defend just to win a point.
Find humility and you’ll suddenly find that God is active in your life in ways that you really need.
