“I am gentle and humble???
One of the first devotionals in the book Knowing God Through the Year by JI Packer, used the above verse
“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.???
My eyes stopped when I read, “gentle and humble.??? I began to consider what I read.?
Here is the Creator of all things, the God Almighty, the God who knows everything and is all wise, the One who is holy, the Ruler Supreme, and yet He told us He is gentle and humble. We will find rest for our souls if we come to Him.?
You would think He would say, “Hey you, don’t you know how important I am? I don’t have time for you, I am too busy.??? But He didn’t. He said, “Come to Me.??? Wow!
The greatest leader and He is gentle and humble. How many people do you know who invite you to come to them? How many leaders do you know, who, after they have become powerful, display gentleness and humility??
And then we must ask ourselves the question, “Am I gentle and humble???? Do people feel peaceful in my company??
~Lord, thank You for inviting us to come to You. Thank you for being gentle and humble. You are so awesome, yet so kind. Create in us a gentle and humble spirit. Amen.
