“( Now the man Moses was very humble (gentle, kind, devoid of self-righteousness), more than any man who was on the face of the earth.)”
Numbers 12:3 AMP
We were reminded at church the other evening about the fact that Moses wrote this about Himself.
Yet, He was inspired to write it by the Holy Spirit.
What if God asked you to write this about yourself?
Would you argue?
Would you first compare yourself to Moses?
Would you think you were better, or that you didn’t measure up?
We discussed that true humility is not having a greater or lesser opinion of yourself,
But rather saying what God says about you.
I love what I see about God’s perception of us.
Especially when He talks about us to others.
Like when Jesus talked about John the Baptist.
He wasn’t calling out His flaws- even after John sent his disciples to Jesus doubting.
No, He was calling out His call.
Everything that He had already spoken of John.
Do you know today, that the Father calls you Holy and spotless, before Him in Love.
I bet sometimes you don’t feel spotless…
Anymore than Moses felt like writing about how humble he was.
Faith and Obedience rarely operate on feelings, but rather on the Authority of the Word.
I want to encourage you to start saying what God says.
If you don’t know yet, listen to Lauren Daigle’s song,
“You say” over and over.
That’s a great start.
Then move on to the book of Ephesians.
Start building your life based on what God says about you.
Not what you feel.
This works in any are of your life.
Healing, provision, strength…
But I fully believe that the root to every distress is not believing that we are Loved, and satisfying to God,
Yet He said,
“For God SO LOVED the world, that He gave His Son.”
Put a pin there for the moment…
He thought you were worth His Best.
Not because of what or how you perform….
that’s hard to change our minds about, after living so long in the circus.
That old rut of people liking or loving us based on what we do for them.
God loves us because He chose us.
Because we were His idea.
Because He believes in us, and sees what He intended for us all along.
Abraham took what God said about He and Sarah, despite what He felt, or even looked like, and you and I are now the beneficiaries of the Blessing through Christ.
Let’s Get in agreement with God today.
