Your choice: Pride or Humility

Your choice: Pride or Humility


I was lead by the Holy Spirit to read & meditate on the book of Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and Acts on bended knees, three times within 30 days. I believe this helped me understand spiritual humility.

In Deuteronomy 8:1-5, the Bible tells us that the Israelites were tested to see what was in their heart:humility or pride. God wanted them to understand that God is their provider for all things, even to make wealth. We know that the first generation of Israelites who God saved from Egypt was prideful, and they did not get to enter the promise land (the following generation was able to).

God loves us, and he desires more than we desire, to provide ALL of our needs, but he will not and cannot if we are not willing to be emptied of ourselves.
"Blessed are the poor in spirit."- Matthew 5:3
"Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle, and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light" -Matthew 28-30
When a person has pride in their heart, they don't accept God's help or they try to help God out. Meanwhile, God is trying to empty them from their fear and their pride, so that he can fill them with faith and humility.
