Steps of Humility by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 03/19/12
Nancy Leigh DeMoss: There are certain things we know we need to do.
“I never made things right. I need to go back and apologize.”
Nancy: But our pride keeps us from taking that step.
“I probably should tell somebody about this temptation and have them pray for me.”
When I speak in conferences, I usually ask the women, “How many of you know there’s some step of humility God wants you to take, but there’s a battle raging inside you—you’re finding it tough to take that step?”
Hands go up across the room. I then remind them that the battle will stop as soon as they raise the white flag of surrender and say, “Yes, Lord.”
The longer you delay, the harder it is to obey God. If you have a struggle going on in your heart right now, would you wave the white flag of surrender? Put one foot in front of the other and say, “Yes, Lord.”
You can’t imagine the joy that waits on the other side of humility and obedience.
