Humility and Hope

The requirement is clear.  Those who desire God must humble themselves.  The key verse in our FBC family reading plan this week is “because your heart was responsive and you HUMBLED yourself before God when you heard what He spoke. . .and because you HUMBLED yourself before Me and tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you declares the Lord”  (2 Chronicles 34: 27)   The real problem in our lives is pride.  The necessary question is ” What does humililty look like?”  Like prayer.  Like surrender of control.  Like praise.  Like not getting my way and not fussing that I don’t.  “He must increase.  I must decrease” said John the Baptist in a powerful expression of this timeless spiritual truth.  Only the humble (self humbled!) ever experience the true mercy and goodness of God.  I am looking forward to seeing you in a few hours!  Lord helping us, we can be small together.   I love you.  Don
