"What does the Lord require? To love mercy, to do justly and to walk humbly before our God."

When we walk in awe of God; we become humbled by His incredibly, infinite majesty that we supernaturally realize there's nothing too difficult for Him. Whether the situation be lofty or a difficult circumstance that seems impossible to walk through or perhaps a relationship in which we are constantly finding ourselves offended...when we walk humbly before God, I am reminded that pride is silenced. In this knowing, humility manifests so we can do what the Lord has equipped us to do what He requires; to do justly because we are in awe and moved to love The Merciful One Who abounds in infinite mercy.
So here's a great weapon I am learning in Christ...it is called "humility". Those Who are in Christ Jesus already have humility from within, however humility manifests when we behold His beauty and holiness! Meanwhile, the triumphant, victorious reminder of what I heard The Holy Spirit speak into my spirit a few months ago as He knows this saved my life - it was something I will remember all the days of my life as pride was seducing me to forsake God's promises and pick up my measly rights...it is when I heard the gentle whisper, "Remember Teresa, HUMILITY humiliates the enemy!"
