Humility - The Greatest Virtue

The word of God illuminates our true unworthy state before God. David considered himself as dust before God. Therefore, he was able to touch the heart of God because of his humility, and gain His compassion. Moses is yet another example of having an intimate relationship with God, and therefore enjoy God’s favor. This favor extended to his people, the Israelites too.
Once a lady approached Sadhu Sundar Singh and said, “Sir! My child is sick. Please lay your hands on the child and pray for healing.” “Should I touch your child with my cursed hands?” replied Sadhu Sundar Singh. He continued, “These hands once, tore the pages of the Holy Bible and threw it into the fire. So, I am unworthy to do so. Please ask somebody else to pray for your child.” We acquire this humility only when we read the Bible. The mother of the child still insisted that Sadhu Sundar Singh pray for the child and eventually he accepted her request. When he placed his hands on the child and prayed over the child in faith, the child was instantly healed.

Yes, this is what the Lord can do when a person is humble before Him. When you surrender yourself to the Lord, He will graciously fill you with His Spirit and lift you to greater heights. You will enjoy divine favor and protection. Because of you, God will extend His compassion and love to your family, friends, loved ones and all around you.
Loving Lord, thank You for speaking to me through Your Word. No matter who I am, or where I work or how wealthy I am, dear Lord, give me a humble heart. Let me be humble to everyone and serve all as You served Your disciples. May I always enjoy your favor!

In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
