Yesterday I shared a message with the church that the Lord put strongly on my heart. It was about the need for humility in prayer. If you have about 12 minutes you might take a listen.
Here's some of the key points:
- Of all the things that stop progress in your life most of the blockages are inside of you.
- Pride is one of the biggest
- God resists the proud
- Get pride out of the way
- Humble yourself
- Kneeling down is a method of humbling yourself
Dan 4:37 "Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise, exalt and honor the King of heaven, for all His works are true and His ways just, and He is able to humble those who walk in pride."
1Pe 5:5 You younger men, likewise, be subject to your elders; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another, for GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.
1Pe 5:6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you at the proper time,
Dan 6:4 Then the commissioners and satraps began trying to find a ground of accusation against Daniel in regard to government affairs; but they could find no ground of accusation or evidence of corruption, inasmuch as he was faithful, and no negligence or corruption was to be found in him.
Dan 6:10 Now when Daniel knew that the document was signed, he entered his house (now in his roof chamber he had windows open toward Jerusalem); and he continued kneeling on his knees three times a day, praying and giving thanks before his God, as he had been doing previously.
The Lord spoke to me to especially encourage the men of the church to do what Daniel did: kneel down and pray, it's a humbling thing. But it's better for us to humble ourselves than for God to do it for us.
God bless you
