Not that long ago- maybe a month or so- my Dad and I were having a theological
discussion in the car. He asked me the question, ” What does it mean to
be poor in spirit.” Referring to the Sermon on the Mount(Read up on
it Mathew 5:1-12). Just last night the Holy Spirit revealed to me what it means.
To be poor in spirit is to accept, and acknowledge your weakness. Those who do
this are blessed because it says in 2 Corinthians 12:9, ” My Grace is sufficient to for you,
for my power is made perfect in weakness.” When we fully accept our weakness we are
allowing God’s power to be perfected in us, and thus reap the benefits. We need to humble
ourselves before God, and I believe He will reward us for that.
Summary: Don’t think you’re ‘all that’. Allow God to work through your weakness
to accomplish what you could never do without Him.
