Job 42:2(NKJV) “I know that You can do everything, And that no purpose of Yours can be withheld from You.3 You asked, ‘Who is this who hides counsel without knowledge?’ Therefore I have uttered what I did not understand, Things too wonderful for me, which I did not know. 4 Listen, please, and let me speak; You said, ‘I will question you, and you shall answer Me.’5 “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear,But now my eye sees You.
Here’s a paradox for you. Those of you with a healthy sense of self are in the best position to exercise true humility. Why? Because the person with a healthy sense of self has nothing to prove. No agenda to push. No ego to guard. And no need to fret over what others think of you. When you encounter a problem that exceeds your knowledge, you admit without pretense that you don’t know the answer.
Sometimes we the people of God can really fool ourselves. We think that since God is all knowledgeable and wise, and since we have His Holy Spirit within us, we should be able to dispense pearls of wisdom. The truth is, the more we come to know God, the more we realize what we don’t know. And that’s ok and by the way we are the better when we discover this truth. I have discovered at this point in my life; there is no need prove anything to anyone. “I am learning to be self assured not self absorbed”
Point to ponder- The more we experience God’s grandeur and the more we understand our dignity as the Lord’s sons and daughters, there is really nothing to prove and everything to gain.
