10 Humble yourselves <tapeinoo> in the sight
<enopion> of the Lord <kurios>, and <kai> he shall lift
<hupsoo> you <humas> up <hupsoo>.KJV-Interlinear
10 Humble yourselves in the
presence of the Lord, and He will exalt you.NASB
Though we look all around ourselves and see that we
have to deal with people, bureaucracies, and systems in society galore, our
first and only real relationship, is with God.All other interactions are based on the success of our spiritual life.
4 Against Thee, Thee only, I have sinned, And done
what is evil in Thy sight, So that Thou art justified when Thou dost speak, And
blameless when Thou dost judge. NASB
Though people will be offended when you do something
to them or when they perceive that you have done something to them, but our
real failures in life are directly related to, and directed at, God.
When God promotes you, then and only then are you
promoted.And Gods promotions are
When He gave you human life, that became a permanent
promotion.When He gives salvation, that
is a permanent promotion.When He gives
blessings, they are permanent.
The only permanent cursing, goes to unbelievers who
end up in the Lake of Fire.All other cursing,
disciplines, or judgments are temporary and limited to this life only.There will be no judgments in eternity.
The way of discipline and heartache come through indifference
toward God and doctrine.
The way of blessing and happiness is through humility,
and humility comes through submission to, and obedience to, Gods will.
And, Gods will is simply to study daily His scriptures,
to learn, to use, and to grow up spiritually.That is humility, or rather produces humility of soul.Humility is the opposite of arrogance.
Humility is unassuming and tolerant.
Arrogance is stubborn, presumptive, shallow, sensitive,
opinionated, patronizing, intolerant, vindictive, condescending, implacable and
Arrogance gains you nothing although you presume everything.
Humility gains you exaltation from God, no less.
Exalt, here means to be lifted up, or acclaimed.And since man is nothing more than dust, then
elevation to joint heir with Christ, of the new heaven and universe to come, is
a mind-boggling promotion.
And that, is the reality and the difference, between the
rewards of arrogance and the rewards of humility.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
