Humble yourselves before the Lord, and He will lift you up in honor. James 4:10
Lord, I pray we are able to read this and understand this is a free will action on our part. We have a choice to free willingly come to You humbly, or to continue in our walk believing we are "ok". I pray we desire to be more than "ok". I pray we read: And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say, “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble", several times over and cannot help but humble oursleves before You.
Help us to come closer to You. Purify our hearts. Help us resist the enemy. Help us to see Your Spirit within us is Your law moving through our lives, causing Your will to be done. Help us to see our own will struggles with Yours, just as Paul described in Romans chapter seven beginning in verse twenty.
Lord, thank You for loving us so much You left these words for us to read and speak prayers that align with Your heart and will for us! Thank You for answered prayers and moving us to pray those prayers. In Jesus Christ's Name, amen.
