That I May Know Him

And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. ~ 1 John 5:20 (KJV)

Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces? Jeremiah 23:29

Humble yourselves

Psalm 116:6 The LORD preserveth the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me.

The Lord allows us to go through trials and hardships for numerous reasons. One of them is to learn humility. When are too proud and think we stand tall, Christ cannot help us. But when we surrender and are brought low, we seek the Lord and in His mercy He doth help. Think about it, this is a Psalm written by famous King David who had riches, wealth and power untold, but he too had to be brought low and learn to call upon the name of the Lord.

Christ loves the humble soul.

Mat 23:12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and he shall lift you up.
