Humility vs. Pride II
Posted on April 19, 2016 by America's Keswick in Freedom Fighters
“I have been young, and now am old, yet I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.”
When I began to plan on this 3-part message around humility, I never could image what lied ahead of my family and me. I started last week with humbling yourself in the Lord and in a week, life humbled me.
After writing last week’s devotion My wife I were on our way to get a sonogram to see and hear our new baby’s heartbeat only to find out we lost him/her. Sad day because we were really looking forward to meeting or second child.
Rough few days and our emotions were alive all the way to the surgery to deliver what remained. When we went to pick up the medication, we discovered that we had a whopping $0 available balance in our checking and savings account. Our accounts were completely frozen and were put on fraud alert. We were hacked!
Fellows, can you image being at the hospital with no money for the co-pay to pay for a surgery that will deliver your unborn child. Let’s say humbling is one of the descriptions.
But God! In humility, God drew Diera and me closer to each other and moreover closer to Him. “I have not seen the righteous forsaken or his children begging for bread.” Life might be throwing you a curve ball, but the Lord will speak to your heart. “Though the LORD is exalted, he looks kindly on the lowly; though lofty, he sees them from afar.” Psalm 138:6

This Week’s Verse to Memorize:
For this cause everyone who is godly shall pray to You
In a time when You may be found;
Surely in a flood of great waters
They shall not come near him.
You are my hiding place;
You shall preserve me from trouble;
You shall surround me with songs of deliverance. Psalms 32:6-7
