Scripture is clear. Believers must strive to walk in humility in their lives. As a result, there are great spiritual blessings for the humble. A great illustration of what it means to be humble is: “Humility does not consist simply in thinking cheaply of oneself, so much as in not thinking of oneself at all—and of Christ more and more.”—(Keith Brooks)

Humility for the believer is having a perfect quietness of heart that has a proper perspective of self. The humble heart can be quiet when no one praises us, or worse yet, blames or despises us. Why? Because the believer finds is wholeness and validation in the presence of God. So, when the world is in chaos, peace dominates the heart that fully trusts in God.

God graciously bestows spiritual blessings for the humble.

Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

James 4:10 (The Message)

When we come before the Lord it is imperative for us to have a proper perspective are who we are. While God graciously gives grace and worth to our lives, we recognize our unworthiness. Like the prophet Isaiah, we say: And I said: “Woe is me! For I am lost; for I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips; for my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts!” Isaiah 6:5 (ESV) When we see who God truly is–holy, sovereign, majestic, glorious, and pure–we become more aware of our sin!

Every time people come in contact with the reality of God’s presence and power, they are overwhelmed with a sense of awe. A sinner in the presence of God has their sin exposed and has reason to fear. However, if we are humble before the Lord we will have the same response as the disciples when they said, “And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?” Mark 4:41 (ESV)

God will exalt the humble heart!

Of course, God doesn’t leave us cowering in fear, but James tells us that the Lord will exalt the humble. If we are humble in spirit and saved by the grace of God, we will not only be sanctified but ultimately will be glorified.

Paul said it this way, “But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ—by grace you have been saved— and raised us up with him and seated us with him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the coming ages he might show the immeasurable riches of his grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4–7 (ESV)

Finally, when we stay humble, making God our source, He will in turn use us for His glory and do great things. The Bible tells us that when we put away our pride, God is more able to use us in the Kingdom. If we determine to seek the Kingdom of God first in our lives, He will provide all that we need, including spiritual blessings! These blessings are priceless and are far more important than anything we can strive for on our own.
