Cape Cod Sacred Assembly preparation, Day 2
 

 If My people who are called by My name, will humble themselves, and
pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will
hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land" 2
Chron 7:14

Day 2 – "Poor In Spirit"

Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. (Mt. 5:3)

Humbling ourselves is being "poor in spirit" and meek. Jesus began the
Sermon on the Mount by blessing the humble. To the poor, who have
nothing in themselves, the kingdom of heaven comes. To the meek, who
seek nothing for themselves, the earth will become their inheritance.
The blessings of both heaven and earth are for the humble of heart!

Humility is the first step in submitting to who God is. It's a right
response to His Lordship, leadership, and the authority of His Word
and ways.

When we choose to humble ourselves, we deal with the very core of our
sinful nature. Then, we are in a place where God's grace and mercy can
be poured out on us. Very little spiritual progress will occur until
we humble ourselves.

Prayer Points:

God, help me to understand that your strength is perfected when I
choose to humble myself. Forgive me for depending upon my own
strength and not Yours.
Help me to understand, that I must decrease so that You can increase
in me!
