When I pray for humility it always scares me! Because I know that if I truly desire humility the opportunity to be humbled will present itself. Fortunately I was recently humbled in several ways. One - I broke my finger helping someone clean up a building that had burned, now making a big deal out of it for sympathy's sake would not be a humble thing to do. Second - I was out of line when talking about a man who is a racist. Whether or not this man thinks that those of other races are of the same amount of worth as someone who is white is between him and God and pray for his sake that his heart be broken! But, I was right when saying that this man hated black people, but I said it in the wrong company and with the wrong motive. Just because i was right does not make what I said right. Humbled. Conviction was appropriate, and God did so! Now I have to humble myself and apologize to those who were in my company! God Be Praised for forgiveness!

I want to be used by God for great and powerful things! However I do not want the glory for these things! While I was in Africa I heard a lot of things prayed for, one being for a young man to receive his ability to hear. We prayed and prayed and prayed, I prayed in the name of Jesus the only name with the ability for such things to happen through us. When one of my friends prayed, God not that anyone will hear of this and believe in our power but that you would be glorified! How often do we pray for things and do not even consider God's glory as a reason for these things to happen? I say to you pray for things, but do not pray for them out of selfish ambition. But, pray for things that might be used for God to be glorified!!! Nothing else really matters. I realized in that time that we were not really praying for this young man to receive the ability to hear we were praying for God to be glorified!
Glorify our Father!
