THE LAW OF COST(PAY THE PRICE PART 6)
James 4:10 humble yourselves in the sight of the lord and he shall lift you up
James 4:6 but he giveth more grace wherefore he saith, God resist the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble
Matthew 23:12 and whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted
THE PRICE FOR DOMINION: “God resist the proud, but he giveth more grace to the humble; and whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased, and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted”. Beyond all contradiction and any reasonable doubt this is a clear principle for the dominion of men; “the price for humility”. Absolute brokenness (Humility) is a great asset/value to whosoever possesses it as a treasure in his vault. Among many principles that govern the lifting of men; principle like prayer, service, diligence, excellence, honour system etc which make room for dominion, the most difficult among this principle whose price is always tasking to pay is Humility (genuine meekness).
As simple as the word appear to be, as difficult it is for men to subject themselves to the spirit of humility. It is very possible that a man be filled with the spirit of prayer and yet pride grows in the soul of the man like a wide tumor. In case you don’t know, by nature it is not usually common that man humble himself; we are in an age that hell has built a system around mortals that as men begin to grow all that will fill his heart is arrogance and haughty spirit. Haven’t you consider the children, men and women growing around you as a person, that by a default setting the character they develop is not of humility but of pride. Often time you do wonder why some growing up child around you suddenly change and become arrogant the moment they get to SSS classes and from there cross into higher institution, and the child becoming so arrogant that he could no longer greet anymore etc, you should also be concern why atimes you find it so difficult to humble yourself often times the Holy spirit brings up his demand etc; all these are a pointer that the very nature of man after the fall is full of pride and haughtiness.
By default, there is no man who is born to be humble; it is a choice we make to pay the price for humility forgetting our ego. If you do not learn to humble yourself you cannot rise on the wings of destiny, your failure to submit yourself to the spirit of humility will one day cause you the chance to insult your helper without knowing. Many through the spirit of pride has insulted their helper and forever shut up the door that the man/woman would have open to them to the mountain top. I pray for you, may you not insult your helper without your awareness. Pay the price to be humble, pride will take you to no where.
