Daily Verses: Philippians 2:5-11.
Key Verse: Matthew 5:3: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Clearing oneself is an attitude that reflects someone who is nothing without Him and is poor in spirit (Matthew 5:3). Someone that has this attitude knows that whatever they have (i.e. knowledge, position, successes, talents, blessings, etc.) are because of the grace and mercy of God. God is the provider all of the successes and there is nothing that we can boast. Matthew 5:3 states that someone who is poor and realize their need for Him is a happy person because the kingdom of Heaven is theirs. This is possible because the “poor” person is someone who is humble and relies fully on Him. Someone who is humble will not complain no matter the situation and will always give thanks no matter how big or small the blessing is. Someone like this pleases God and God will definitely answer the prayer of a person like this. In addition to their prayer being answered, the person will also be given the kingdom of Heaven. Having the kingdom of Heaven means having God, who is the ruler of the kingdom, by our side. It also means that we will have access to everything in that kingdom.
God is pleased if His children rely fully on Him.
I will give thanks because of His goodness and grace that are never ending.
Daily Declaration :
Philippians 2:7:“…but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men.”
I will pray so that processes that the Children of God are experiencing will humble their heart and allow them to fully rely on Him.
