Ingredients for Revival Experience
The first confession of a broken person is admission of total inability to succeed without G-d’s favor. A clear heart cares and habitually guards against everything that pollutes the mind. (Psalm 31:12; 34:18; 51:10-17; Matthew 21:44; 1 Samuel 15:24)
G-d pours out His
upon His people. To bring us first to a deep sense of our own sins and
impurities! Then He can bring us into a spirit of humility & brokenness!
The 'well-dressed Christian' still has more to put on in order to follow the L-rd's example! "Clothe yourself with...humility"! Humility is the next instruction from the Scripture! This humble mindset gives us a low opinion of ourselves, and only the Holy Spirit can provide us with such a rare garment. It is so easy to be proud because of what we feel are our superior talents, possessions or achievements.
Pride is so subtle. Even when people are dirt poor and have great limitations, they can still be very full of themselves. When we live with a proud attitude, we are susceptible constantly to the tension and disappointment that accompany it. Every little remark or negative comparison is like a painful pinprick to our inflated egos! When we put on pride, it takes a lot of energy to be always defending and reestablishing our "superior" position in the minds of everyone we meet.
Real humility begins when we think and feel about ourselves according to
truth! Just the simple truth about G-d, ourselves and life is all we
need. All we have to do is ponder the truth about our
our incredible limitations and the fragile nature of life itself! If we
spend a little time alone with the Lord confessing these things, we will
be well on our way toward having a new "spirit of humility" in
our daily lives! The Church G-d blesses must always maintain a humble
position before G-d and man. And the first secret to receiving guidance
from God is a "humble spirit"! Humility is probably the 'rarest
article' of spiritual clothing found among the people of G-d!
however, is plentiful and grows at an amazing rate! The Apostle Peter
wrote: Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you
be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for G-d
resisted the proud,
and gives grace to the humble. (1 Peter 5:5)
Humility is not poverty!
Every little remark
or negative comparison with poverty cannot based from the scripture! You
can be very prospered, but still humble! You can be very proud and still
live in poverty! It has to do with your attitude toward G-d and one
another! Living in great poverty, and saying I am living in great
humility is not always correct! There are exceptions, but that is when
G-d has a special purpose for a specific person for it!
Wearing the mantle of Humility!
