Rhema for the Day : Prostrate

Rhema for the Day : Prostrate

I’ve been swamped with ministry work. God has been keeping me very busy during this lockdown. I’m not complaining. Just saying.

Lockdown has allowed many of us to attend several church services at a time – something we could and would not have done pre-lockdown. Today I attended one from my own church (Trinity Methodist Church Petaling Jaya in Malaysia) and also New Creation Church Singapore’s 11.30am service.

From Pastor Joseph Prince’s sermon today, I found that today’s Rhema (Greek word for “a specific word from the Lord that applies it to us individually”) is the word “prostrate”. This word holds deep meaning to me – it’s an act of humility. Humility which is so important in us being humans, especially leaders in all parts of society. Humility doesn’t make us any smaller than others. Neither does it make us look stupid. On the contrary, it shows maturity and a willingness to learn and be better.

In ministry, humility has taught me much. And today’s devotion from My Utmost For His Highest writes :

I delight in knowing that there is something in me which must fall prostrate before God when He reveals Himself to me, and also in knowing that if I am ever to be raised up it must be by the hand of God. God can do nothing for me until I recognize the limits of what is humanly possible, allowing Him to do the impossible.
