Matthew 5:3 (AMP) 3 Blessed (happy, [a]to be envied, and [b]spiritually prosperous—[c]with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the poor in spirit (the humble, who rate themselves insignificant), for theirs is the kingdom of heaven!
Being humble means not always having to have the last word. Being right is over-rated. Having humility can bring you great happiness. Sometimes just thinking we need to be right all of the time can bring frustration. It is okay for someone to have a different opinion than you and it is also okay if you disagree with them. There is no need to let disagreement to steal our joy. Our joy is not somebody else’s responsibility.
What is going on – on the inside of us to make us lose our joy through a disagreement? Although we may not know what is going on inside of us, God does. God can help us clean out the inside of us and help us to find humility. We can just do the best we can. We will never be perfect, but God will certainly help us if we desire to get better in this area. It is time we stop letting the devil use pride to keep us from progressing in spiritual development.
Everybody is important, even when they do not agree with us or if we are at odds with them most of the time. God created each and every one of us for a purpose.
If you would like to accept Jesus as your savior, and you are not quite sure how, it is as simple as saying a prayer to God letting Him know you are ready to accept Him into your life. Say this prayer if you would like to invite Jesus to live in your heart:
Father God, I love you and believe in you. I need you Lord and I am sorry for my sins and the way that I live. Lord, I want you in my life. I receive Jesus as my savior and Lord. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose from the dead. Lord take me as I am and make me the way you want me to be. God, thank you for saving me and being with me on my journey. I am looking forward to my journey with you Lord. I know you will equip me for my journey and I am glad I have you by my side as I walk this walk of Life. Thank you Lord, I love you. Amen
