Prayer for true humility

How often do we use the excuse of being humble to escape God’s call? Instead of asking, “Who me?” maybe you should ask, “Why not me?” Many times the enemy tricks us into thinking we’re being humble when we really just want to avoid conflict. While we shouldn’t pick fights for nothing, sometimes the Spirit picks fights for us that require determination.

The key to this process means seeking and understanding God’s will. Seek his presence and let his Word show you the right thing to do. Get strength and confidence from the Spirit, and ask for his blessing. Then go forth and do what you have to do. When you trust in the Lord, everything will be a blessing to you and will glorify Christ Jesus.
