“Humble yourself Amanda.”
That’s what I hear God saying in this moment.
“Humble yourself so you can move forward with Me.”
And I’m not always the best at being humble. It’s honestly something I find myself making a mental note to pursue everyday.
However when I discovered the area that needed humility.. I thought, “This is strange… Strange but interesting.”
You see, my faith needs humility. My belief system and very way of taking a risk with God needs to be brought low.
Because I’m learning that I still operate off of a belief that I have to keep working really hard in my giftings in order for God to bless what He’s given me.
For some reason I don’t want to just embrace the gifts of God. I keep pushing them away with this attitude that says, “I got this God. Let me work. I’ll give you the glory and the credit, but let me work myself into the ground until I’m exhausted. But then don’t forget I deserve something in return too!!”
It’s really twisted.
And in this moment I don’t know what to do about it all. However, I’m pretty confident that the solution is Jesus. It’s simply believing that all that God has given and all that He continues to give is wrapped up in the lifestyle I pursue with Jesus. Because I don’t deserve the freedom and giftings I have, but then in the same breathe I do. I do because He made it possible for me to cultivate this lifestyle! 🌱 #cultivatelife #justlive
