Humility & acknowledgement of mistakes is the first step to freedom, restoration & blessing. Unless we learn how to “properly” humble ourselves before the Lord, true change can never come in our lives. This is the reason why God sent His own spirit – the Holy Spirit, to live within us. He knows we cannot change on our own. We need His power to help us accept that we are sinners, turn from our foolish ways, and live in accordance to His will.
The good news is this: Once we make a firm decision to welcome the Holy Spirit in our lives, we immediately become the HIS “purchased possession” & we will live with a “seal” that guarantees us that He will take care of everything, not just here on earth but through all eternity.
“Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts. Humble yourselves before the Lord, and HE will lift you up.” -James 4:8, 10
