______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB






[pt. 5 of 16]


Poor In Spirit


*____...."Blessed are the poor in spirit".... Matthew 5:3 ASV


____The poor in spirit view themselves as possessing nothing. A believer's peril lies in their having too many things in their spirit. Only the "poor in spirit" can be humble. How often the experience, growth and progress of a Christian become such precious matters to them that they lose their "lowliness". Poor bespeaks having nothing [in one's own self]. If one endlessly reflects upon the deep experience which they have passed through, it soon shall be debased to a commodity of their spirit and hence become a snare. An emptied spirit enables a person to lose themselves in God whereas a "wealthy" [overactive] spirit renders themselves "self-centered". Full salvation delivers a believer out of themselves and into God. Should a Christian retain something for themselves their spirit [inner man] shall immediately shall turn inward - unable to break out and be merged in God.

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
