Spiritual warfare is not easy, yet we must embrace it as a lifestyle. Humility is the foundation on which all spiritual warriors must stand. Faithful obedience is the strategy by which we enforce the victory granted by inheritance. Humility will always lead us to obedience, and faithful obedience always holds the winning hand. Even a baby Christian can fight like the most skilled warrior if humble and obedient.
When King David was just a boy, his humble obedience and zeal for God led him to slay a fully armored, fully equipped giant who was a skilled warrior from his youth. Humility, acquired through his relationship with God, gave David the proper perspective to see the victory in this situation, and he was able to slay this mighty warrior with a slingshot! (1 Samuel 17) His humility caused him to have a perspective that led him to a great victory for the entire nation of Israel and elevated him to a position of honor.
David loved God, feared God, and understood that God loved him.
“I have found David the son of Jesse, a man after my own heart, which shall fulfill all my will.” (Acts 13:22)
God is looking for people with humble hearts that dare to believe all things are possible. Faith like that can never be attained apart from humility.
Humility is the place with the highest, broadest, and clearest perspective.
Humility comes from loving and fearing God. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and humility is an expression of wisdom and understanding. When we understand who God is, humility is the natural response.
Micah 6:8 (ESV) He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
