Apostle Grace Lubega
James 4:6(KJV); But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble.
Humility is not the outside display of a “humble attitude.” Humility is a virtue of the spirit.
Take for example Moses. On the outside, his temperament could have been easily misinterpreted for pride. He had a temper he could scarcely control as demonstrated from the occasions where he killed an Egyptian man(Exodus 2:11-12), broke the tablets of stone given to him by God (Exodus 32:19) and angrily struck the rock twice contrary to God’s instruction (Numbers 20:10-12).
However, God refers to him as the meekest and humblest man on the face of the earth and for such, He spoke to him face to face and not just through dreams and visions (Numbers 12:3-8).
One of the signs of the spirit of pride in a man is the absence of the revelation of God and His Word in his life. Why so?
It is because God keeps His secrets with the humble(Psalms 25:14).
People are often denied access to many things in the spirit because they have never learned how to break before God. A broken and contrite spirit He will not despise (Psalms 51:17).
It is a reflection of pride when a man is unable to hear God.

Humility is not an outside display of a “humble attitude.” Humility is a virtue of the spirit.
PRAYER: Father, I thank you for your Word. I choose to bend and break before you. I lay aside any veils and cast down any crowns in the understanding of your Lordship over my life. Even as you deal with me and in me, my spirit is opened to deeper revelations of your person and greater clarity in hearing your voice. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
