Walking in Humility

Posted on 2 May, 2016 by David Stanfield

As worshippers with banners, we need to cultivate humility and intimacy with God. One of the greatest fears our leaders can have, is that we are waving banners to attract attention to ourselves.

We need to live all of our life in such a way that those who know us recognise that it is not pride or attention-seeking that motivates us. Keep a close watch on that. Pride and the fear of man often run in parallel.

Does this mean I shouldn’t move until I have conquered pride absolutely? Certainly not. Does this mean I regularly check the motivation of my heart while using banners? Yes, it does.

Will people still project these ungodly motives on to me even when I have examined my heart before God and other godly people and I’m clean? Yes. It is a continuous journey into humility and intimacy.

Walking in Humility

Here is what the Scriptures encourage us to do:

“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.” Ephesians 4:2

“Humble yourselves before the Lord and He will lift you up.” James 4:10

“He guides the humble in what is right and teaches them His way.” Psalm 25:9

“He …gives grace to the humble.” Proverbs 3:34

“…This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in spirit, and trembles at My word.” Isaiah 66:2b

As you walk, run, dance and move in humility, the Lord will teach you His ways and you will be able to open the way for others to move into this wonderfully releasing ministry.

Banners in the Bible

Numbers 2:1-34
(also Numbers 10:11-27) The Lord said to Moses and Aaron: "The Israelites are to camp around the Tent of Meeting… each man under his standard with the banners of his family."On the east… Judah are to encamp under their standard.
On the south… Reuben under their standard.
Then the Tent of Meeting and the camp of the Levites will set out in the middle of the camps. They will set out in the same order as they encamp, each in his own place under his standard.
On the west… Ephraim under their standard.
On the north… Dan, under their standard. They will set out last, under their standards.
So the Israelites did everything the Lord commanded Moses; that is the way they encamped under their standards, and that is the way they set out, each with his clan and family.

Isaiah 49:22
This is what the Sovereign LORD says: 'See, I will beckon to the Gentiles, I will lift up my banner to the peoples; they will bring your sons in their arms and carry your daughters on their shoulders'.
