Humility is one great mark a believer should fight to adopt as his principle in life. In-fact, the bible says “God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.”(James 4:6). If you read through all scripture, you realize, Christianity has its origin in humility. One most distinct facts about the old and new testament servants of God was humility. The same still remains a cornerstone of the Christian faith. It’s written “Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth. (Numbers 12:3). Those words came from no one else, but God himself. The creator of the universe, after surveying the hearts of all men and women of that day on earth, made a conclusion that Moses was more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.
You know what, when God says you are humble, then sincerely you are humble, but someone may ask, what is the mark of a humble man?
1J Humble people care about the welfare of others more than themselves. They would rather they loose and someone else gains. Just to demonstrate how humble Moses was, and when God was angry with Israel, in Numbers 14, you find God in anger asking, “How long will these people treat me with contempt? How long will they refuse to believe in me, in spite of all the signs I have performed among them? God then, in disgust gave Moses a grand offer! He tells him “I will strike them down with a plague and destroy them, but I will make you into a nation greater and stronger than they. (Numbers 14:11-13)
Did Moses accept this great offer of God blessing his family and killing the entire Israel? No way! Moses reasons with the Lord and says “Then the Egyptians will hear about it! By your power you brought these people up from among them. And they will tell the inhabitants of this land about it. They have already heard that you, Lord, are with these people and that you, Lord, have been seen face to face, that your cloud stays over them, and that you go before them in a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. If you put all these people to death, leaving none alive, the nations who have heard this report about you will say, ‘The Lord was not able to bring these people into the land he promised them on oath, so he slaughtered them in the wilderness. (Numbers 14:14-16)
Moses then prays for them “Now may the Lord’s strength be displayed, just as you have declared: ‘The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation.’ In accordance with your great love, forgive the sin of these people, just as you have pardoned them from the time they left Egypt until now.”’.(Numbers 14:17-19)
After Moses prayer, The Lord replied, “I have forgiven them as you asked. Nevertheless, as surely as I live and as surely as the glory of the Lord fills the whole earth, not one of those who saw my glory and the signs I performed in Egypt and in the wilderness but who disobeyed me and tested me ten times—not one of them will ever see the land I promised on oath to their ancestors. No one who has treated me with contempt will ever see it. (Numbers 14:20-23)
Saint of God, let me ask you how humble are you? Can God really say you are the most humble man in all the earth if he was to do an inventory today? What must you adopt to work towards that Goal and how passionate are you in defending people rights as Moses did? May God help us be humble people who care enough to raise an intercession to him and speak life into this dying world. We have a great role of seeking God’s mercy for the sake of the world with humility as our clothing. God bless
