Stiff Neck

James 4:10  Humble yourselves before the Lord and he will exalt you.

Dose your neck hurt?  It should.  We are all a very stiff-necked people.  We became that way in the Garden do Eden.  It is hard for us to bow our heads before anybody, including God.  We constantly fright the temptation and carnal desire to put ourselves first. Mew bow our head before God when we first realize we are sinners and Jesus, God’s Son, took our sins on Himself but it is a continual struggle to keep them bowed.  We think we have a right to be mad, resentful, unforgiving and self-indulging when others hurt us.  We fail to continually remember without God in us we are nothing and have no rights.  It takes continual confessing and continual refilling of God’s Holy Spirit to keep our heads bowed befor Almighty God and fellow man.  Our question is are we willing to continually humble ourselves before God and man and recognize we have no rights to anything except through the grace and love from God? Let’s give our stiff necks a rest.
