False Humility

1 Corinthians, 4:3 I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. My conscience is clear…

I'm too proud. Too self centered. Too selfish.

So I used to try to counter my own pride with alot of false humility I say false because fixing our focus on anything but Him is not humble and I was constantly trying to beat myself down into humility.
This is a trick we all fall for. We know we are human. Too human. We know we need Him desperately so what do we do? We look to self to fix the problem. We become introspective which is just another way for the enemy to get us to take our eyes off of Him and place them in our own navels. Discouraging isn't it? This rotten flesh is so discouraging. The enemy knows this, and if he cant get us to fall into blatant sin he will try to get us to focus on saving ourselves.

Galations 6:14 But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ,


  1. You're so right. We'll all fail if we use our human effort to over come the flesh but now I know I'm not of the flesh anymore but of the Spirit. I'm in Christ. He is my victory in all things. In Him I can't fail. In Him I can't sin.

    You probably say it is easy said than done. It is just a mind game. If we said we are not of the flesh then why are we still see ourselves in the flesh? Our flesh is dead and that we cannot sin. The flesh does not matter anymore even if we failed. Let go the old self (the rotten flesh) and live the new life of the Spirit because that's what God see us. You'll live more holy than you're trying to. I pray that you get it. I know because I was on the same path for many years even before I became a Christain. The answer is let go and let Him. Amen

  2. Wonderful post! Keep blogging on His goodness for His glory.. cheers!
