Humility

Meg

“My hand made all these things, and so they all came into being. [This is] the LORD's declaration. I will look favorably on this kind of person: one who is humble, submissive in spirit,  and who trembles at My word” (Isaiah 66: 2 HCSB).

We serve the God and Creator of all things. If the book of Isaiah has taught me anything, it's that God's in control. He will judge the world and bring all into submission, in His own time. My job on this earth is to serve Him and tell others about Him. In this last chapter of Isaiah we're left with some characterstics of a Christ-follower. These are the type of things God sees as good and right.

It may be surprising to some that these thigns have nothing to do with money, or power or physicial appearance. Our society today places so much stock in the outward. We live our lives trying to make more money, become more recognized and/or fit into hollywood's stereotype of the ideal woman or man.

God is looking for someone far different though. This is the type of person He will bless. This is the type of person He wants to call His own.

This person is humble, not in an "step all over you" sense, but their heart is in the right place. It's able to be molded and changed into something even better. This heart is submissive, not only in an outward sense, but in their inner spirit. They understand the role of God in their live, and strive to serve Him with every ounce of their being. And finally, this person truly understands the power of the word of God. They tremble at His voice and honor Him with their very lives.

Do I meet all of these characteristics? Not always. There are days when my heart is anything but meek. But I strive to live a life like this. If I have to give my own worldly desires back to my Savior each and every day, I will, just so that I can slowly be made more and more like Him.
