Seeking Him Radio

Drawn to Humility

Woman: “When someone’s a know-it-all, I just don’t want to have anything to do with them.”

Woman 2: “My boss won’t listen to anything I say. It’s like she thinks she’s got it all figured out.”

Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth: When someone’s full of pride, it tends to push us away. They think they can handle things themselves, so we back off and let ‘em try.

Did you know that God does the same thing with us? Scripture after Scripture tells us that God is repulsed by pride. And when He backs off and lets us try things on our own, well we’re in real trouble! But God is drawn to humility. In Isaiah 57 God says, “I dwell in the high and holy place, and also with him who is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones” (v. 15).

Is there a situation you just don’t know how to handle? Maybe it’s an opportunity to humble yourself, admit your need, and rely on God’s help.

With Seeking Him, I’m Nancy DeMoss Wolgemuth.
