Day 27 Omer Reading
Week 5 /Attribute 5 – Humility/Devotion (Hod)
We have completed 4 weeks counting to Shavuot Sitting At The Feet Of Our Master YAHUSHUA
The Walk of Humility
Numbers Chapter 12:1
1. And Miriam and Aaron spoke against Moses because of the Kushite woman whom he had married; for he had married a Kushite woman.
2. And they said, Has YAHUVEH indeed spoken only by Moses? Has HE not spoken also by us? And YAHUVEH heard it.
3. And the man Moses was very ANaV (humble), more than any other men, which were upon the face of the earth.
Proverbs 22:4 The reward of humility is the fear of YAHUVEH, even riches, and honour, and life.
How great is humility? So great that the Holy One singles it out to glorify and praise it.
Wherever one finds the might of the Holy One, he also finds HIS humility. This is found in the Torah and is repeated in the Prophets and repeated again in the Writings of the Bible, In the Torah it is written:
For YAHUVEH Your ELOHIM is the GOD of gods, and the LORD OF LORDS…” (Deuteronomy 10:7)
This verse is followed by, “…who does justice for the orphan and the widow.”
In the Prophets it is written: For YAH says High and exalted He dwells forever…” (Isaiah 57:15)
This is immediately followed by “…and the downtrodden and dispirited will be revived…”
In the Writings it is written: “…extol him who rides on the clouds; HIS name is YAHUVEH”
(Psalms 68:5) which is followed by, “…father of orphans and judge to the widows…”
Thus a person has to imitate the qualities of his Creator with all his might, in order to ascend to the highest rung and cling to humility. This will entitle him to be loved by ELOHIM and people as well.
When a person grasps on to the quality of humility, he will distance himself from much of the filth found in humanity, and he will hasten to the qualities of holiness, purity and abstinence.
There was no more humble person then YAHUSHUA our MASHIACH, YAHUVEH In The Flesh who loved us so much that HE was willing to take our place and die for us!
We are to walk in His footsteps and take His yoke (Torah/Teaching and Instructions) upon ourselves. We live in a world where “self’ promotion” has taken the place of walking humbly before ELOHIM.
Our flesh wants “I” and “Me” to be exalted. We want everyone say how wonderful we our, when in fact our life should reflect how wonderful YAHUVEH is.
We have become arrogant and proud and YAHUSHUA has called us to be gentle and humble. We want to be promoted and make a name for ourselves, when YAHUSHUA has said HE is the one who promotes. We want to exalt ourselves, when that priviledge only belongs to HIM. We want to live, but HE has called us to die to self.
Unfortunately those of us who are a Believers are the most guilty of this.
We have become puffed up and full of pride. We need to repent! Because without YAHUSHUA we are nothing!
We have become proud, when HE has called us to walk as HE walked, putting others before Himself.
John 15:13 No one has greater love than a person who lays down his life for his friends.
Matthew 11:29 Take MY yoke upon you and learn from ME, because I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
Matthew 23:12 for who ever promotes himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be promoted.
Luke 14:11 Because everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, but everyone who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Philippians 2:8 HE humbled himself still more by becoming obedient even to death – death on a stake as a criminal!
Proverbs 11:2 First comes pride, then disgrace; but with the humble is wisdom.
