My people desire greatness and prosperity. They desire to rule over others and to be exalted in the earth. They desire to be held in very high esteem by those around them.
Yet My people have not obeyed My Word in these things. He who desires to be great must become servant of all. He who desires exaltation must walk in humility; and not only outwardly, but true humility of the heart. Willing, no matter what I should require of him.
My people desire much, but you are willing to give so little, and so you have not attained.
1 John 2:16 For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
26 But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;
27 And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant:
28 Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.
Proverbs 22:4 By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.
Proverbs 15:33 The fear of the Lord is the instruction of wisdom; and before honour is humility.
