“In himself, nothing, in God, everything.”

“A humble man is not a human mouse afflicted with a sense of his own inferiority. He has accepted God’s estimate of his own life. He knows he is weak and helpless as God declared him to be, but paradoxically, he knows at the same time he is in the sight of God of more importance than the angels. In himself, nothing, in God, everything.”

A.W. Tozer

As I’ve ruminated on the idea of God’s Holiness this week, I know there is a risk of making God seem somehow unapproachable, but that is hardly the case. I like the quote from A.W. Tozer above, because it is clarifying on the topic. Yes, we are nothing on our own, but in God, we are valued.

This morning Patrina and I prayed that our children would grow in the Grace of God and how that is only really possible when we humble ourselves before the LORD. Consider the words from James –

“And he gives grace generously. As the Scriptures say,

“God opposes the proud
    but gives grace to the humble.”

So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

James 4:6-7

Remember the LORD in everything and have a great weekend!
