Humbly Bow Before your King

December 31, 2017

Micah 6:8 AMP … He has told you, O man, what is good;
And what does the Lord require of you, except to be just,
and to love [and to diligently practice] kindness (compassion),
And to walk humbly with your God [setting aside any overblown sense of importance or self-righteousness]?

Before you Rise Up and Walk with your King

=> Humbly Bow Down before Him!

.

.
1Peter 5:5-7Likewise, you younger men [of lesser rank and experience], be subject to your elders [seek their counsel]; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another [tie on the servant’s apron], for God is opposed to the proud [the disdainful, the presumptuous, and He defeats them], but He gives grace to the humble.

6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time, 7 casting all your cares [all your anxieties, all your worries, and all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares about you [with deepest affection, and watches over you very carefully].

Rise up to walk with your King

=> place your feet in His footsteps!

.
Isaiah 40:31 AMP … But those who wait for the Lord [who expect, look for, and hope in Him] will gain new strength and renew their power;
They will lift up their wings [and Rise Up close to God]

Like eagles [rising toward the sun];
They will Run and not become weary,
They will Walk and not grow tired.

To place your feet in His footsteps
=> Wait On and Trust in the Lord

.

Those who WAIT ON and TRUST in the Lord

=> Will RISE UP like eagles
Rising Up toward the SON!

.
They will be given strength not only to walk
But to Run and Soar!

Word Study
.
From Jn 5:8 Commentary:

.
Jesus actually gives three commands here: rise, take, and walk. He demands that people take action and responsibility—to take a stand with Him. The more we follow Christ, the more we rise in spiritual character. Sin, on the other hand, causes people to decline, degenerate, and descend to the depths of despair and spiritual weakness. … Jesus also requires that the man “walk,” a testimony of the fullness of His healing power. The man is able to rise up, providing the first visible testimony of his healing to those around the pool. However, he does not just hobble away—he has strength to carry his bed and walk. Being able to walk gives the man opportunity both to show and tell many others of Christ’s miracle.

The excellence of His work is seen in all these commands. If a person reacts positively to his contact with Christ, it will manifest itself in his conduct. The most effective witnesses are from those who walk as Christ commands!
