Humbleness - It Can All Be Taken Away

Humbleness, as used here, is a reference to thinking of yourself in realistic or low terms. A key idea in this series of devotionals, "The Blessed Lame Man," which is based on II Samuel 9:6-8, 13 is that, "We should be mindful of humility, blessings, and lameness."

In this devotional, let's focus on why you should work on not thinking of your self higher than you should. No matter how much you have going for you, all of it can be taken away.

Before the sun sets, you can be so sick or in so much pain that you find yourself praying for death to come. Your loved ones that you are willing to give so much for could be plotting and scheming to bring you down, right now. That car, house, money, and those cloths that you treasure can all be burning to the ground, as you read this devotional.

Even our minds can be taken away. We can develop mental diseases that rob us of our very personalities. No matter what we have, we like Jonathan’s son ought to be humble. All that we have is because of the Lord. And all that we have can be taken away.

Self Examination
1. List two or three things that would hurt you to your heart, if they were taken away.

2. What are you going to do to grow in this area, so God will not be tempted to get your attention, by taking the above listed items away?

Prayer
Great and awesome God, the One who is the source of every good thing in my life, it is to You that I pray. Thank You for how You keep on showing favor on my life, in spite of my not ignoring You.

I confess that too often I have simply enjoyed what You have done, without giving the proper honor to whom honor is due. Please forgive me, and help me to live according to Your marvelous plan for my life. In Jesus' name, amen.
