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

Isaiah 59:19
When the enemy shall come in, like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him and put him to flight.Cf. Exodus 17:15 (Amplified Bible) And…
From the west, men will fear the name of the LORD, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere His glory. For He will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the LORD drives along. (NIV)

Numbers 1:52
The Israelites are to set up their tents by divisions, each man in his own camp under his own standard.

John 3:14-16
Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes in Him may have eternal life. For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.
