What ever happened to humility? Once valued in our culture, humility just isn’t practiced at all. Instead, we have a self-centered, chest-thumping, braggadocios, pat yourself on the back generation with an exaggerated self-importance.
True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less. CS Lewis
Since God chose you to be the holy people he loves, you must clothe yourselves with tenderhearted mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Colossians 3:12 NLT http://bible.com/116/col.3.12.NLT
We can mistakenly think that focusing our our lack and comparing ourselves to others is a posture of humility. Instead of focusing on God's greatness in our lives we are focusing ourselves. We are actually agreeing with the enemy by making our own problems bigger than God's promises. http://afministry.ning.com
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, pray, search for me, and turn from their evil ways, then I will hear their prayer from heaven, forgive their sins, and heal their country.–2 CHRONICLES 7:14 Read more scriptures on Humility at www.peacebewithu.org/!! GOD BLESS!!
Do you ever struggle with the crippling effects of self-doubt? Do you ever feel like “throwing in the towel” because you just don’t have what it takes to keep on going?

If you are on the verge of giving up, of listening to your self-doubts, this post is for you!

She is satisfied knowing she has pleased her Lord." Read the rest of today’s devotion as we desire God more than the praises of others : http://proverbs31.org/devotions/?p=3040
