Be Highly Esteem is from God
In our society today, everybody expecting to be highly esteemed, but unfortunate, many could not acquire such. A man who desire to be esteem should ready to pay the prize. Our God, the Creator of the heaven and the earth said “This is the one I esteem: he who is humble and contrite in Spirit, and trembles at my word” (Isaiah 66:2).
According to a Christian dictionary, esteem means to place in our high value on or to respect. The person that God will exalt, promote, dignify, beautify, and honor is the one that God esteem. Everyone value dignity and highly respect, but uncountable are not ready to abide with the requirements.
Each man has the same regard from God once we abide with the Esteem principles stated in the Word of God. God is not a respecter of anyone, He only respect and highly value anyone that accept, honor and abide with His principles. Remember, the only one that can regard and esteem man (you) is God. He has done it to many, and He is ever ready to do it for you in as much as you follow these principles:
To be a humble person means to lower the position of oneself or another. Not proud or haughty. The opposite of proud is humble, and God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. It is our duty to be very humble and reverent in our approaches to God; and when we come before Him, there is no remedy but we must submit and make you as nothing before God. Don’t praise or exalt yourself but allow God to praise and exalt you, but showing a modest estimate of one’s own important.
Contrite in Spirit
The man contrite in Spirit is the one who’s the wickedness of people around him given in concern and burden in spirit. I mean those who are thoroughly heart broken because of the evil deeds. Lot is model of a man contrite in spirit. During his time at Sodom and Gomorrah, he was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men of his generation. He was totally tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard.
The wickedness of people during Lot’s time in Sodom and Gomorrah was the same with the wickedness of our generation today. The evil deeds had rampaged to extend of women wear half naked clothes, atrocity and sexual ambition every where. Despite all these wickedness, yet God look with a favorable eye to Lot that hath a broken and contrite spirit, whose heart is subdued to His will. You too can be regard, exalt and look with favorable eye by God if you can contrite in spirit, poor and low in eyes as Lot did. Don’t follow the corruption desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. You should exempt your life of been contaminated with the sexual immoralities and all wickedness of the society and your nation. Your spirit should disagree with engaging in stealing and scam, fornication and adultery, drunkenness and drug addict, murdering and assassinate.
Trembles at My Word
Trembles at God’s word is the third responsibilities. God is a respecter of anybody. Mind you, He respect and highly regard His words more than His name. As long as you’re tremble at God’s word, as long as your enemies are tremble before you.
Those who are trembles at God’s word are those who hearken and obey His words. They do not take the Scriptures or the message of God for granted. They labor and stress themselves in obedience to the Bible in other to achieve greatness.
Brother and Sister, winning doesn't start around you, rather it begins inside you – your obedience to the commandment of God through His Spirit in you. God treated you to be great and highly esteem. Every man or woman on earth has the potential for highly esteem and greatness in God’s master plan, the only condition is humble yourself, contrite in the Spirit and trembles at God’s word.
As a living soul, given grace to read this message today, you can decide to be highly regarded by God. Nothing can stop you. It is God desire for everybody to go to heaven and occupy the greatest position on earth, but this is not possible, because there must be disobedient, unbelieving and people who has no desire, respect and regard to be somebody in life. But for you to have access to this message is a grace for you to understand the reality of what God has for in His Master's Plan. Therefore, do not hesitate to make a u-turn and amend your ways, so that God can turn His face unto you for approval.
Take note of these
Your parent will only recommend you, but it is only God that can highly esteem and promote you. Nobody can do it for you; it’s your responsibility to put yourself on the tracks of greatness. God have approved the certificate of your greatness, you too must appreciate this approval.
Finally, to be esteemed is better than silver or gold; humility and the fear of the Lord bring wealth and honor and life; in the paths of the wicked lie thorns and snares, but he who guards his soul stays far from them.
Thanks and remain highly esteem.
