An Audience of One

“Humility is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing done to us, to feel nothing against us. It is to be at rest when nobody praises us and when we are blamed and despised. It is to have a blessed home in the Lord where we can go in and shut the door and kneel to our Father in secret, and be at peace when all around is trouble” (Andrew Murray).

Humility is not being a doormat for everyone to walk on. Humility isn’t having an extremely low self-esteem.

As I heard it said before, humility isn’t thinking less of yourself but thinking of yourself less.

It’s having a proper view of yourself, both who you are apart from the grace of God and who God says you are.

Humility isn’t synonymous with weakness. It is strength under control and harnessed for a purpose.

To be humble is to be at peace when all around is trouble. It is having a certain hope in a sea of hopelessness and uncertainty.

Lord, may we ever come to you in secret and find secret strength there. May we ever kneel before you to rise to your calling on our lives. May we live every moment for an audience of One, You. Amen.
