What Is True Humility?

Here is a devotion from Love Worth Finding Ministries for today.
“Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord,
and He shall lift you up.”
James 4:10

Have you ever wondered what humility was all about? True humility is not thinking negatively about yourself. It is agreeing with what God says about you. The grace of God will exalt a person without inflating him and humble a person without debasing him. I am what I am because of Christ. In this life, you are not going to be sinless, but as you deal with sin in your life, you can come closer to being free from sin. Sinless? No. Blameless? Yes. As you confess and stay prayed up, you can be blameless.

Humility isn't thinking negatively of oneself, but knowing truth. What a revelating concept! Truth that I am utterly unworthy to approach the living God. Truth that, by Christ's grace, I have confidence to approach the living God! Those who wish to come to God must humble themselves--an recognize their helplessness before Him. Hmm. It seems so simple in typing. :)
