(A journey through Verses from the Bible – with practical applications – to Love Jesus & Live Jesus!)
DAY 13: HUMBLING ONESELF, TO HAVE GOD, AS THE GREATEST STRENGTH OF LIFE!
(Lk 1:51) “He has shown strength with His arm; He has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.”
CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE VERSE
Filled with the joy of the Holy Spirit, Mamma Mary proclaims the Magnificat and reminds every human person…
… to make God as the Sole and Solid Strength of life
… to humble oneself before the Awesome Authority of God
WHAT IS CHRIST SPEAKING TO ME, THROUGH THIS BIBLE VERSE?
- Rely totally on God as the Strength of life, Who can lift us from any situation of misery, pain and humiliation!
- Have the courage to humble oneself totally before the Grace of God, as we are reminded, “the rivers of Grace flow, not on the mountains of pride, but through the valley of humility!”
HOW CAN I CELEBRATE CHRIST, THIS CHRISTMAS?
Earnestly pray this verse: “I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me!” (Phil 4:13)
Identify an area/situation wherein I need to humble myself; practise it consciously today!
Lord Jesus, give me the Grace to bank on You as the Greatest Strength of my life, and help me to walk in Your Path in humility and dependence, Amen!
Let us celebrate Christ, this Christmas, and live like Him!
God Bless! Live Jesus!
