The Blessing of "Lowly" - Producing a Genuinely "Blessed" Mentality - Friday, December 8th

The Blessing of "Lowly" - Producing a Genuinely "Blessed" Mentality - Friday, December 8th

And they will sing of the ways of the Lord, for great is the glory of the Lord. For though the Lord is exalted, yet He regards the lowly. But the haughty He knows from afar. Psalm 138:5-6

Woe to those who deeply hide their plans from the Lord, and whose deeds are done in a dark place, and they say, “Who sees us?” or “Who knows us?” You turn things around! Shall the potter be considered as equal with the clay, that what is made would say to its maker, “He did not make me”; or what is formed say to him who formed it, “He has no understanding”? Isaiah 29:15-16

But now, O Lord, You are our Father, we are the clay, and You our potter; and all of us are the work of Your hand. Isaiah 64:8

Humble yourselves in the presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you. James 4:10

Today's thoughts from today's verses

God must truly be bewildered with us at times. How much we know in our heads about Him and His dealings with us and still we often face the things that come our way as if we didn’t know Him and the wonderful way he goes about doing what He does. Is there really any justifiable reason for us to ever say “why me?” Oh that we might reckon with and count on God’s transforming presence in the “lowly” things of life. Perhaps our prayer should be, “Lord deliver me from all that is not “lowly,” that robs me of the joy of your presence and the miraculous ways your make all things beautiful.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, thank you for the original Christmas story and all the “lowly “ aspects of Christ’s birth contained in it. Thank you for the beauty in the story that springs forth so readily and startlingly from all that is “lowly “ and the powerful lesson it is for me in my life today. I really do want you to deliver me from all that is not “lowly “ and robs me of the joy of your presence and the miraculous ways you make all things beautiful. I really do choose to go forward counting on your transforming presence in the “lowly” things of my life. Amen!
