Will this ever get easier?

Humble yourself before the Lord and he will lift you up. James 4:10

I have heard this so many times.  From the time I became a Christian in the summer of my 9th grade year, I have sung the worship song. "Humble thyself in the sight of the Lord".  It seems like such a simple idea. 

God is bigger and better than me. 
  • He is the ultimate Creator. 
  • The Alpha and Omega.
  • The Great I AM.
  • The one who called me by name.
  • He sent His son to save me.
And yet, I still struggle at times to give Him the glory due His name.

I think about my wants and needs instead of His plan and purposes
I know he is calling me to bow before Him, to allow Him to lead me, to surrender to His will.

Will this ever get easier?

The promise in the verse is that "He will lift you up".

I am choosing to humble myself, holding onto His promise that as I do, He will lift me up.

I know I sound like a broken record.  I want to live for you and serve you, yet I struggle to do so consistently. I apologize for forgetting who you are. I am humbled as I write this.  Please accept my apology and fill me with a deeper awareness of your kingdom and of your majesty. Thank you for your promises. I will put my trust in you because I know that your mercies are new every morning.
