Day 9 Humbling ourselves is a decision expressed through an action

Among the mature, however, we speak a message of wisdom–but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 1 Corinthians 2:6
Humbling yourself is to ask for forgiveness willingly and expressing it through an action that demonstrates a desire to change. The opposite of humility is pride and rebellion. When the spirit of pride influences us, our understanding is blunted, and we cannot perceive our to need to change (2 Co. 4:3–4). God does not humble us, nor could we ask Him to make us humble. Instead, the Bible tells us “Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time” (1 Pe. 5:6). This means that we must willingly humble ourselves. It is not about thinking, “Okay fine. I’m going to humble myself”. No! If you make a mistake, choose to humble yourself and seek forgiveness. Humble yourself if you mistreated someone, or if you know that your words and actions wounded someone. It is most important to realize that we have offended Him and our attitude of change should demonstrate complete dependence on Him. Today, I ask that you humble yourself. Surrender your heart before the only and true God, and depend on Him for all things.

I do not know which area of your life God is asking you to give to Him. But whichever one it is, I can assure you one thing: God will not force you; He wants you to surrender it voluntarily. Are you ready to start?
Let us pray
Heavenly Father, on this day I confess that I have offended, and I ask for forgiveness; I recognize that I need to be changed completely. I voluntarily surrender every area of my life, I submit to Your authority and Your Lordship, I surrender my heart, and from today on forward I declare that I depend only on You, in everything and for everything. I choose to walk with You, love and serve You with all of my heart for the rest of my life. Amen.
