That ‘H’ Word

That ‘H’ Word

I love my moments with God. This prayer series that we are currently pursuing in Bible Study has opened up even more areas of blessings and struggles for me. 

The 'H' Word. That one thing that the Lord requires for us to grow in our relationship with Him and for powerful effective prayers.

But, you know when God is speaking to you… I am not talking about that loud voice we think we hear. Really, it is something you feel deep inside of you during your moments with him. It is when you open His word and read something that makes you go ‘hmmm’. Then you turn on your podcast, and a preacher is speaking on the same topic that made you pause before. 

Well, what cemented it more for me, was not only did all of that happen but in our Bible study class last week, the same very topic came up. 

Yes, Lord! I hear you loud and clear. I need to be humble. It is one of the most vital characteristics in our relationship with God and having powerful and effective prayers.

God’s response

“But what if I am not that humble?” I asked God. “I will teach you,” I felt the response… Sigh… that is not the response I wanted. Cause you know what is going to happen next. 

”That is okay Lord… I got you… I will practice this, but I need your strength.” I mumbled. So every day I come to him in prayer, I start with “Lord teach me to pray. Help my unbelief.”

Humility is the H-word that I struggled with. Filled with passion, energy, ‘a get it done’ attitude, and yes very loud at times, I don’t come across as very humble. I love the ability to control things; I know it is because I have had to be in control at a very early age. But it is no excuse.  

I learnt that I had it all wrong… it isn’t that humbleness means I need to lose all of that, it means that I need to come with a heart that is open and receptive to my Savior. I had to acknowledge the power and authority of God; His will and not my own. 

For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

Matthew 23:12

Food for thought: Last week, I wrote about Moses, who the Bible says was the most humble man, and as you learnt, was highly favoured by God. If humility is something you are struggling with, ask God for the wisdom and strength needed to come to Him in the manner that He wants from all of us.

Prayer: Holy Father, great is thy name. Teach me how to pray. Please help me with my unbelief. For so long, I have kept a tight hold on controlling everything in my life. Free me from this bondage. I want to seek you first in all things; not my will, but your own. In Jesus’ name. Amen

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
