I believe the Lord Jesus gave me this song as a letter from him to his church. This is about humbling ourselves before God and under his mighty hand, that he may lift us up in due time. We are to submit ourselves to God. We are to be self-controlled and alert, because our enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. We are to resist him, standing firm in the faith. And, we do that by putting on our spiritual armor, which God has given to believers in Christ, so that they can fight off the devil’s schemes. If we come near to God, he will come near to us. We do this by turning from our sin, and by allowing the Spirit of God to purify our hearts. We can’t be casual about sin – we must grieve, mourn and wail over our sin.

To My Beloved / An Original Work / November 14, 2011

Based off I Pet. 5:6-9; Eph. 6:10-20; Jms. 4:4-10

Be strong in the grace of Christ, and
Put on His full armor in your fight
Against the enemy of your souls,
And resist him with all your might.
Take up the shield of your faith within you.
Salvation’s helmet – you put it on.
Put on the belt of truth,
And walk in the Spirit,
And you’ll not be ashamed.
Love your Lord Jesus; call His Name.

Call on your Lord and Savior, Jesus, and
Make Him Lord and King of your hearts.
Obey all of His teachings He has given
To you to follow in all His ways.
Repent of your sins. Return to your God.
Follow Him where’er He leads you now.
Humble yourselves in full
Surrender to His will
For your lives today.
Bow before Him, and humbly pray.

Be strong in the grace of Christ, and
Obey your Lord in ev’rything, always
Keeping His teachings in your hearts near you.
Walk with Christ in ev’ry way.
Resist the devil. He will flee from you.
Draw near to God, and He’ll be near you.
Wash your hands you sinners
And double minded.
Weep and wail o’er sin.
With Christ, your new lives begin.

I think there is a "perception" of what a "humble" man is that is not right. A humble man is not someone who is very quite, shy, or has a appearance of being very gentle. A "humble" person is one who has "all of his cares cast upon the Lord" He does not worry about anything in his life. He is not looking for a way to get ahead in his life. He has absolute peace and joy in everything knowing the Lord has all his cares in his control. This is a picture of man who has total faith in his God, as he is "humble"!!

1Pe 5:6.. Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
1Pe 5:7.. Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.

Thank you for sharing that Curtis. I agree. Humble also means being emptied of self, self-sacrificing, being willing to suffer injustice in order to see others go free, repentant, not prideful, and giving God the glory, honor and praise for what he has done in and through our lives.
